Before we dive right in, can we get a little group “Awooga, awooga!” going for Handsome Ben Hanscom from IT (1990)? A poetry-writing cutie patootie as a kiddo and John Ritter in a bolo tie as an adult, he’s one of the best parts about the TV miniseries (which Sydney insists should count as only ONE movie, to be clear). However, this not-quite-doubl…
 
Were you absolutely traumatized by The Ring (2002) as a child or did you get to live in blissful ignorance until you were older? The Spooky Tuesday hosts came to this movie at all different points in their lives, but we’re all on the same page now as we discuss all of the unbearably uncomfortable images in this movie, from wiggie fingies to throat …
 
It’s no coincidence that a poster of The Hills Have Eyes made it into the set dressing for The Evil Dead (1981). Much like Doug, Ash is on the scaredy cat to bad bitch pipeline — and we’re exploring that and more clear references in our Season 2 premiere. Picking up where we left off with Alien, we’re highlighting another genre-defining horror film…
 
Thought we were going somewhere? We wouldn’t do that to you, bestie. Instead of leaving you with nothing during our little one week break, we put together this minisode to reintroduce all of our long-time friends and new listeners to Spooky Tuesday and the three of us. There may not be a dumb bitch this week, but there will still be some CLEAR refe…
 
Want to hear the spookiest thing of all? This episode is our season finale — but don’t worry, we’re not leaving you for long. Before we start Season 2, though, we knew we had to go out with a bang, which is why we’re exploring Alien (1979). A legendary film that won both critical acclaim and launched a whole Ridley Scott Cinematic Universe, there’s…
 
If there’s one thing we have to say about The Autopsy of Jane Doe (2016), it’s that Stanley is 100% alive and well in our hearts, and we won’t hear anything that so much as suggests the opposite. On a new Spooky Tuesday, we’re exploring the deep cuts of this modern mystery and analyzing what did and didn’t actually happen. This isn’t the kind of mo…
 
DARE would’ve been a failed program no matter what, but we’re pretty sure it didn’t help that The Faculty (1998) was actively undoing all that hard work. Or maybe it was the DARE agenda that kept The Faculty from becoming the next Scream the way Hollywood thought it would be? On a new Spooky Tuesday, we’re talking about the alien flick with a soon-…
 
Critics might love it, but Quentin Tarantino has some notes for It Follows (2014), and he may or may not be making points. On a new Spooky Tuesday, we’re getting into the sex ghost rules — and whether or not they even matter — as we break down a movie packed full of literary and cinematic references, insightful questions about the truth of human na…
 
Ever wished you could relate to the scariest scene in Psycho, but you’re just more of a bath person? Then What Lies Beneath (2000) is exactly what you’ve been waiting for. A Hitchcock-inspired story that features a beautiful blonde, a very spooky bathroom, and multiple different games of solitaire, this Michelle Pfeiffer flick is about as straight …
 
Here at Spooky Tuesday, we love to make things gayer, but it doesn’t get much more gay than Sleepaway Camp (1983). While the movie can be pretty problematic when taken for the film it was intended to be, a more modern perspective and death-of-the-author approach can transform it into a deeply meaningful and identity-affirming flick. Plus, it’s full…
 
Ready for another underwater adventure? During the second half of #Shark2Weeks, a.k.a. #SharkyTuesWeek, friendships will be tried and tested — both in the movie and on our latest Spooky Tuesday episode. In 47 Meters Down: Uncaged (2019), four teens venture into an underwater cave, where a medieval shark may or may not be lurking. Starring some Nick…
 
In the words of Javier, “Mr. Shark! Hello! Mr. Shark, hello!” Or should we say Mx? If you ask us, sharks are beyond the gender binary — and they’re sticking around for a week or two here at Spooky Tuesday. In a special back-to-back feature, we’re taking on #Shark2Weeks (a.k.a. #SharkyTuesWeek), starting with 47 Meters Down (2017). Starring Mandy Mo…
 
Wild horses couldn’t drag us away from Fear (1996). On this week’s Spooky Tuesday, we’re talking about Reese Witherspoon’s much-under-discussed film, a cautionary tale about what happens when you get involved with Mark Wahlberg. If you ask us, this should be a mandatory viewing for all teenager girls — at least for the style inspo, if not the life …
 
It’s mid-summer, baby, and you know what that means: It’s time we covered Midsommar (2019) on Spooky Tuesday. On our latest episode, we’re honoring the super long film by sharing a super long episode (which is to say that we just could not stop talking about it and dissecting it and debating aspects of it). From Mark’s shocking resemblance to Sid f…
 
There’s only one thing you need to know about Friday the 13th (1980) ahead of time: Kevin Bacon’s butt is in it. In a new episode of Spooky Tuesday, we’re heading back to camp right alongside ghombie Jason (and Fear Street Pt 2). In the first installment of one of horror’s most famous franchises, we’re exploring how the stories do and don’t connect…
 
Did a gas station attendant give us bad directions somewhere along the way? This week’s Spooky Tuesday took us into radioactive territory with The Hills Have Eyes (2006), a Wes Craven reboot that explores both global and domestic politics, the desolation of the desert, and a shockingly relevant pair of yabbos.…
 
We can’t believe it’s almost over, but we’re closing out Pride Month here at Spooky Tuesday with the film that’s simultaneously the least canonically gay and most subtextually gay out of the films we covered this month, The Lost Boys. Featuring the two Coreys, Kiefer Sutherland, and Richard GIlmore himself, this ‘80s classic teaches us — as cohost …
 
How many films can say they feature a row boat chase scene? In a new episode of Spooky Tuesday, we’re talking about What Keeps You Alive (2018), a film that both delivers on the gay shit front and only gets crazier from there. With two wives heading into the woods (somewhere Sydney would tell you that you should NEVER go), things are bound to go ba…
 
We have two and a half words for you: Catherine Zeta-Jones. And then a few more: Owen Wilson saying, “Wow.” If neither of those caught your attention, we’re just not sure how else to sell you on The Haunting — but as another take on Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House, this haunted mansion movie really takes it there with the strange and s…
 
The Blood Spattered Bride (1972) implies in the title alone that it’s got everything we could want in a movie: fake blood, a man-eater, and two brides. What more could the Spooky Tuesday girlies ask for? Full bush representation? Don’t worry, this film has that too, and it’s as ‘70s as you’d expect. A take on the classic Carmilla tale, The Blood Sp…
 
Happy Pride, Spookies!!! We’re kicking off the month by featuring films that couldn’t get much gayer because they actually *are* gay — and we’re starting with Jennifer’s Body, one of the most perfect and iconic films of all time. The world still needs to deliver a serious apology to Karyn Kusama, Diablo Cody, Megan Fox, and Amanda Seyfried, but in …
 
Interested in the weirdest class conscious, body horror flick you’ve probably never heard of??? This week, we’re taking on Society, a 1989 film from Brian Yuzna about a teenage boy growing up in a family he can’t quite relate to. But it’s not just a movie about feeling out of place, trusting your gut, and eating the rich, it’s also packed with fron…
 
Does our episode title not say it all? Idris Elba is in Prom Night (2008), and we’re talking about that incredible piece of casting and all the rest on a new episode of Spooky Tuesday. Also starring Brittany Snow, Jason from Friday Night Lights, Terri from Glee, Kellan Lutz from Stick It, and Ming-Na Wen from Mulan, it has a fairly stacked crew — w…
 
Talk about a movie that’ll give you bad dreams! On a new Spooky Tuesday, we’re talking about Nightmare on Elm Street (1984), the film that launched Johnny Depp’s career, introduced us to Fred Kreuger himself, and (probably) inspired Home Alone. It’s also got plenty of CLEAR references to Scream — or vice versa if you don’t subscribe to that whole t…
 
Are you ~down to clown~ with Ma (2019)? On a new Spooky Tuesday, we’re taking on the Octavia Spencer original, a must see if only because it is the first film we’ve covered that delivers the nudity we deserve: Luke Evans’ dick. Or possibly a fake dick? We’re investigating that question and more as we weigh in on the movie that launched a thousand m…
 
What is there to say about The Boy (2016) that Chelsea could possibly write that Monica and Sydney would not eviscerate her for? On a new episode of Spooky Tuesday, things get tense as our hosts battle it out over the last Doll Month movie. Featuring a porcelain doll named Brahms, the lost art of reading chewing gum, an incredible sturdy towel situ…
 
It’s very possibly one of the fundamental laws of physics that all ventriloquist dummies must turn the creep factor up to 11, but Fats takes it to a whole new level in Magic (1978). In a new episode of Spooky Tuesday, Doll Month continues as we finally explore one of life’s greatest mysteries: Was Anthony Hopkins ever a young person? His age in thi…
 
Watch your back, Chucky — there’s a new haunted toy in town! This week’s installment of Doll Month is all about Annabelle: Creation (2017), and it just might be the best thing to come out of the Conjuring Cinematic Universe. In our latest episode, we’re unpacking the origin story and doing the math to see just how it stacks up against the film we’v…
 
It’s here, it’s here, Doll Month is finally here! You know we had to start with the ultimate haunted doll flick, which is why Spooky Tuesday is kicking off our first theme month by taking on Child’s Play (1988). It’s the movie that gave us Chucky, Seventh Heaven Mom, a new girlfriend named Maggie, another rant about cultural appropriation, and a li…
 
It’s the great debate of our time: Is Jeff Goldblum hot in his role as the Brundlefly? On a new Spooky Tuesday, your beloved cohosts are at odds as we take on The Fly (1986), but there’s at least one thing we can all agree on, which is that all six feet of Geena Davis could step on us. Join us as we break down all the classic David Cronenberg body …
 
Is your family empire even a dominion if you haven’t made an actual deal with the devil? In Ready Or Not (2019), the Le Domases put the rich in ritual goat sacrifice, and Grace is about to find out just what it costs to be one of them… or, uh, not. When the mysterious Mr. Le Bail reveals she’s in for a game of hide and seek — and therefore next for…
 
Before Rachel Green, there was Tory Reding — and before there was Tory Reding, there was Dan O’Grady, who as it turns out may NOT have actually known the rules when it comes to robbing a mythical creature for their gold. In honor of Saint Patrick’s Day, Spooky Tuesday is taking on Leprechaun (1993) this week, and it’s a doozy. As we attempt to unpa…
 
If an invisible man gaslights you for a whole movie but no one is around to see it, is he still played by Oliver Jackson-Cohen? This week's Spooky Tuesday answers that age-old question and more as we take on The Invisible Man (2020), which isn't just a remake but a reimagining of the classic creepy story. Featuring Elisabeth Moss, a dog that lives …
 
Happy move in day, freshman! For the next week, we’ll be bunking with The Roommate (2011), the teen thriller that scored an astonishing 3% on Rotten Tomatoes. With a cast straight out of your CW dreams, mental health messaging from hell, and the first canon gay character in Spooky Tuesday history, there’s a lot to discuss in our latest episode.…
 
As the great Christina Aguilera says, “Sweet, sugar, Candyman (1992).” A new episode of Spooky Tuesday is all about the sexiest boogeyman we know — and we’re not talking about the Babadook. Not only is Candyman one of the scariest movies we’ve watched yet, it also has a lot to say. This week, we’re talking about what it did right, the moments that …
 
Did your date bail on you for Valentine’s Day? Did you never even have a date? Give yourself a do-over with three Spooky Tuesday cuties as we take on Valentine (2001), one of those classic bad-good movies from the early aughts with an absolutely stacked cast. But the stars aren’t the only things that are iconic about this film — the kills just migh…
 
If we give The Conjuring (2013) five knives out of fives, will Vera Farmiga come and touch us on the forehead and remind us of our fondest memory? We’re willing to negotiate our ratings on this week’s Spooky Tuesday, where we’re talking about the creepy classic — and the first entry into the Conjuring Cinematic Universe.…
 
Is Get Duked! (2020) the best horror flick you’ve probably never heard of? When Monica suggested we add the Amazon original to the Spooky Tuesday schedule, we weren’t sure what to expect — but with all of the intensity and energy of a music video and all of the Britishisms and delinquent charm of Misfits or The Inbetweeners, this movie is a guarant…
 
Spooky Tuesday been a little too spooky for you these past few Tuesdays? Take a break and relax with the charmingly quirky murder mystery that is The Ghost and Mr. Chicken (1966). Starring Don Knotts and certified hottie Joan Staley, this sweet little flick has scares appropriate for all ages but plenty of moments that will still make you jump. Plu…
 
Is there any horror film more unfairly underrated than House of Wax (2005)? Starring Paris Hilton and more intensely mid-2000's than you can even imagine, this movie was panned by both critics and audiences, but Spooky Tuesday is here this week to tell you that it's a flawless film, actually. Our love for this flick knows no bounds — even if it doe…
 
Who knew that we had this much to say about The VVitch (2015)? When it comes to the "New England folktale," we just couldn't shut up — and we guess that figures since this is Monica's favorite Spooky Tuesday yet. On our new episode, we're talking about sexy wood chopping, Game of Thrones, and an IRL demonic goat who stole the show on set.…
 
Ever wanted to watch someone get impaled with a church post? Then Sleepy Hallow (1999) is the movie for you. A new Spooky Tuesday takes on the Time Burton classic full of iconic characters, dramatic swoons, and the best three- in-one death scene we've ever seen. The Headless Horseman isn't messing around, and he's not the only killer we're stanning…
 
What happens when the Home Alone kid grows up and gets interested in girls — or at least one girl in particular? This Spooky Tuesday, we're tackling Better Watch Out (2016), the film that takes Kevin McCallister's childish hijinks and turns them into preteen predatory behaviors. Without getting too spoilery right off the bat, all we can say in that…
 
What more could you want for Christmas than a stunningly spooky tale of stranger danger at a sorority house? This week, we're taking on the original Black Christmas (1974), a decadent film full of badass girls, fabulous fur coats, and what may or may not be the first canonically bisexual character in Spooky Tuesday history (well, other than the Bab…
 
Did anyone else mistakenly remember Gremlins (1984) as a sweet movie about little monsters at Christmas time? Yeah, that is...not that. One our latest episode of Spooky Tuesday, we're talking about the kind, the legend, the adorable little creature who inspired Furbies, Baby Yoda, and Vin Diesel himself: Gizmo. Oh, and we're talk about his creepy r…
 
Cults — yikes, are we right? On our latest episode of Spooky Tuesday, we're talking about The Lodge (2019), which unfortunately isn't actually a lesbian ghost story and instead tackles the tale of a woman slowly losing touch with reality after she's forced to confront her rocky religious past. But, hey, at least it has Alicia Silverstone!…
 
No one's doing it quite like The Blair Witch Project (1999). Not only did the found footage-style film reenergize a genre, it also seriously freaked fans out without ever showing something spooky on screen. The movie was totally one-of-a-kind — and we'll get around to talking about it on this week's "Spooky Tuesday" just as soon as we can stop geek…
 
This Thanksgiving, it's all about the turkey — and the turkey is all about revenge. In ThanksKilling (2009), a vengeful turkey returns from the grave to enact justice on behalf of Native Americans everywhere, and he does it all while offending all kinds of other marginalized groups. On this episode of Spooky Tuesday, we're celebrating the holiday, …
 
Is it time for Ethan Hawke's redemption arc? In our eighth "Spooky Tuesday" episode, we're giving him a second chance as we take on 'Sinister' (2012), a seriously scary film that's just as spooky as it sounds. But you know what doesn't sound so spooky? A child-eating creature named Gabagool. With our knack for pronunciation, this review of a demoni…
 
Was it a mistake to watch 'The Purge' the night after the election? Yes. Are we feeling a lot better now that the results are in? Definitely. But if you'd like a little window into our anxiety spiral and the politics of 'The Purge', then this is the episode for you as we tweak the storyline, break down all the many dumb bitches, and discover a new …
