Freaky was written by Michael Kennedy and Christopher Landon and directed by Christopher Landon. It stars the aforementioned Vince Vaughn as well as Kathryn Newton. The plot revolves around the Freaky Friday trope of body-switching, but this ain’t your momma’s body-switching comedy. There is blood, there are guts, there’s a chainsaw to the nuts!

S2E8 - What do QAnon and Labyrinth Have In Common?

S2E8 - What do QAnon and Labyrinth Have In Common?
Episode Notes In this episode of Last Year's Horror, Ben is joined by former 9/11 truther turned conspiracy theory debunker Stephanie Kemmerer to ask the burning question on everyone’s mind: is 1986’s Jim Henson directed dark fantasy classic Labyrinth part of a vast conspiracy to confirm the truth behind QAnon’s wildest accusations of child-eating and satanism carried out by the US’s Deep State elite? Hint: no, it isn’t. But it’s a lot of fun comparing what the infamously wacky conspiracy theorist cult that attempted to overthrow the US government has in common with a movie starring puppets and featuring a farting bog. Oddly, there’s more in common between these two than you might think!   Follow us on social media: TWITTER: www.twitter.com/lastyearshorror INSTAGRAM: www.instagram.com/lastyearshorror   FACEBOOK: www.facebook.com/lastyearshorror Follow your intrepid hosts: BENJAMIN'S TWITTER: www.twitter.com/BanjaminAllocco   CAREY'S TWITTER: www.twitter.com/andcareyon   CAREY'S INSTAGRAM: www.instagram.com/andcareyon Follow Stephanie Kemmerer on Twitter:     For more on QAnon, check out Stephanie’s Skeptical Inquirer presentation here:   If you enjoy Last Year's Horror, check out all the interesting, entertaining, and elbow deep shows on the Ordis Studios Podcast Network by visiting the website or following the network on social media.   ORDIS STUDIOS WEBSITE: www.ordisstudios.com   ORDIS STUDIOS TWITTER: www.twitter.com/ordisstudios   ORDIS STUDIOS INSTAGRAM: www.instagram.com/ordis.studios   Intro song written by Benjamin Allocco and Marty Allocco, and performed by Marty Allocco.   Last Year's Horror is created by Benjamin Allocco and Carey Feagan and produced by Benjamin Allocco.

The Lodge was directed by Severin Fiala and Veronika Franz and stars none other than Elvis Presley’s granddaughter, Riley Keough, alongside brilliant child actors Jaeden Martell and Lia McHugh. This winter horror story revolves around a woman stuck in a secluded house with her boyfriend’s children as strange occurrences dredge up her traumatic past. Oh yeah, and Alicia Silverstone makes quite an appearance! We’re joined in our discussion by our very good friend Ariana (Switch)Blade. Hold your pencil tight, grab the cinnamon, and bundle up for this feelgood holiday romp (you’ll get those jokes by the end of the episode, I swear)!

His latest short story collection is Children of the Fang and Other Genealogies. In this interview, we talk about how he got into horror, why some critics don’t take horror seriously, whether the universe is really as cruel as some horror stories make it seem, and what kind of horror movies does a literary giant like him enjoy? Oh, and keep a pen and paper handy if you’re looking for horror authors to read, because John knows his stuff!   Follow John Langan on Twitter:       Check out John Langan's story collections and novels:   The Wide Carnivorous Sky and Other Monstrous Geographies   Sefira and Other Betrayals   Children of the Fang and Other Genealogies   House of Windows   The Fisherman Follow us on social media: TWITTER: www.twitter.com/lastyearshorror INSTAGRAM: www.instagram.com/lastyearshorror FACEBOOK: www.facebook.com/lastyearshorror Follow your intrepid hosts: BENJAMIN'S TWITTER: www.twitter.com/BanjaminAllocco CAREY'S TWITTER: www.twitter.com/andcareyon CAREY'S INSTAGRAM: www.instagram.com/andcareyon If you enjoy Last Year's Horror, check out all the interesting, entertaining, and elbow deep shows on the Ordis Studios Podcast Network by visiting the website or following the network on social media: ORDIS STUDIOS WEBSITE: www.ordisstudios.com ORDIS STUDIOS TWITTER: www.twitter.com/ordisstudios ORDIS STUDIOS INSTAGRAM: www.instagram.com/ordis.studios Intro song written by Benjamin Allocco and Marty Allocco, and performed by Marty Allocco.

S2E5 - The Hunt
Episode Notes In this episode of Last Year's Horror, we're joined by our friend TJ Stokes to discuss the controversial political satire / horror / action thriller THE HUNT, which created an uproar just with a few key words ripped from the social media lexicon. What a bunch of deplorable snowflakes, right? Get cucked! That’s a thing, right? The Hunt was written by Nick Cuse and Damon Lindelof and directed by Craig Zobel. Come for the satire, stay for Betty Gilpin’s badass, drawling, mumbling, crazy-eyed performance! This movie CUCKS!!!

Directed by Leigh Whannell and starring Elisabeth Moss, it’s the romantic story of two star-crossed lovers—one an aspiring architect, and the other a genius of a man who just…wants to be seen.

Episode Notes In this Episode of Last Year's Horror, we're talking about the possibly maybe Lovecraftian (?) aquatic horror creature future, Underwater.
