Really Awful Movies: Ep 297 – Friend Request

Marina is a social outcast at a made-up California university. She sits in the back of her psych class and pulls her hair out, and wears a hoodie and is gothed up – so you know she’s messed up.

She’s at the heart of Friend Request, this being just an expression as this is a movie with no heart, or soul, or passion for that matter. What we describe as “aggressively mediocre.”

Marina soon starts stalking a popular girl on social media, through a Facebook-like platform (it’s like Facebook and not actual Facebook, as Mark Zuckerberg did not take too kindly to this movie using his copyright).

Tied into all this is some witchcraft backstory, some unspectacular deaths, some cyber-bullying. It all amounts to a big, fat zero.

Really Awful Movies: Ep 290 – Midsommar

Welcome, New Year!

Happy 2020 everyone.

We are back with a new episode of the Really Awful Movies Podcast, focusing on the Ari Aster effort, Midsommar.

It’s an off kilter member of the folk horror subgenre (define that one how you wish, we get into that here), it’s a pretty engaging tale of anthropologists heading to Scandinavia to study a strange subculture.

On this episode, we talk about Hereditary, try and get a handle on how you define folk horror, we talk The Witch, Bone Tomahawk, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Bones, The Good Place (!) and more.

Tune in and tell all your friends!
