Really Awful Movies: Ep 326 – Happy Death Day

On today’s episode of the podcast, Happy Death Day!

It’s a mix between Groundhog Day, D.O.A. and Scream, leaning heavily on the former, the Harold Ramis-directed undeniable classic. Is HDD a classic too, that can be mentioned in the same breath? Um, no, but for a Blumhouse production, it’s fairly watchable.

On this episode of the podcast, “you load 16 tonnes, what do you get? Another day older and deeper in debt.” What do birthdays mean to you?

Putting slasher flicks like this in the context of occasion-based horror flicks like April Fool’s Day, New Year’s Evil, Halloween, Silent Night, Deadly Night, etc, etc.

Also, where does this fit into the Blumhouse catalogue? What’s up with that production studio anyway?

How Christopher Landon sets up red herrings and his aesthetic approach to the story…Jessica Rothe’s performance, and much more!

Really Awful Movies: Ep 321 – Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight

Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight, sounds much like the golden-era (though not necessarily golden in quality) Don’t Go in the Woods!

There are a bunch of camp counsellors a la Friday the 13th, and a bunch of nubiles being hunted down by some mysterious entity, though in this one, a bit of a supernatural deus ex machina.

And it should be noted that Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight that is a Polish horror film, a region of Europe that unlike Italy or France, is not exactly known for having a well-developed horror scene (that we know of. Maybe there is?)

On this episode of the Really Awful Movies Podcast, join us in the deep dark woods of Western Europe, and see what’s up with this flick, available for viewing on Netflix.
