Episode 70 - Night of the Living Dead

1/25/2021
We're back to the scary world of Romero in The Night of the Living Dead! Where Pete desperately tries to convince Kevin that undead ghouls shuffling around at roughly the speed of a zoomba are scary. Learn about THE movie that kicked off what we know as modern zombies, even though they weren't called zombies in this one! Pete gets to rave about a classic he respects and Kevin gets to see how slow motion monster can, in fact, be deadly, if only due to numbers.

Episode 69 - The Lodge

1/20/2021
It's all fun and games here at Fearless films! At least that's what Kevin's desperately trying to do in this episode as Pete takes him through one of the more bleak movies he's had to watch and talk about. Back to the woods they go in The Lodge, a suspense filled mystery turned horror where the two boys takes their listeners on a tale of horrible parenting techniques, super villain origin stories, and for some reason an Island with a polar bear? I don't know man, I just write the...

Not only the scope of the movie, but they also discuss the long reaching ramifications of the new 'found footage' style of film making and the mark the movie made on Hollywood by being such a financial success. Kevin also learns of the best way to...

Episode 67 - Cube

1/4/2021
On this weeks episode, the guys face one of the most terrifying forces in the world: geometry!! We are talking about Cube, a Canadian sci-fi horror film from 1997. Pete explains the story of a group of strangers trapped in a gigantic cube shaped construct made up of individual cube-rooms. They must use their wits to survive the deadly, booby-trapped rooms, figure out why they have been imprisoned, and find a way out before they starve to death. Kevin knows better than to assume they will...

Episode 66 - Terror Train

12/26/2020
On this episode of Fearless Films, the guys check out Jamie Lee Curtis' second slasher outing with the 1980 Canadian horror film, Terror Train. The story follows a group of college students celebrating New Years on a party train, and being stalked by a vengeful killer. Not quite "Die Hard on a train" but close enough. Pete takes Kevin through the intriguing mystery of the movie, which is not the identity of the killer, but how they manage to sneak around the train undetected (hint, this is...

Episode 65 - Silent Night Deadly Night

12/22/2020
Welcome to Christmas time at Fearless Films! Having run out of Black Christmas movies to talk about (for now) Pete and Kevin turn to another Christmas movie for their holiday Cheer. Unfortunately for them 'cheer' is the last thing anyone is feeling as they struggle through this movie. Pete tries to grapple with the horrendous exploitation in this 80's slasher telling the tale of a deranged orphan pushed past the brink of sanity, donning a Santa costume to go on a bloody Christmastime...

The movie is a lot more sympathetic and paints them in heroic colors. Kevin, as a home owner, offers his insight into just how many...

Episode 63 - Child's Play

12/8/2020
On this week's episode of Fearless Films, the guys open up one Christmas present early, and inside is a killer doll! This is the late 80's slasher hit, Child's Play! Pete tells the tale of a notorious serial killer using voodoo magic to inhabit the body of a doll in order to cheat death. He then continues his killing spree while trying to obtain the body of a young boy. In true 80's fashion, all of this madness is played straight and taken most seriously. Kevin spends the entire episode...

Episode 62 - 30 Days of Night

12/1/2020
In today's episode of Fearless Films, the guys discuss 30 Days of Night, a comic book inspired tale about a group of vampires that descend on a small Alaskan town to feed for an entire month while the sun never comes up over the horizon. Pete describes the film as the last bastion of good, monstrous and violent vampires before the first Twilight film would come out the following year. Kevin can only focus on his man-crush, Josh Hartnett, and largely complains that living in Alaska in...

Episode 61 - Dr. Sleep

11/23/2020
On this weeks episode of Fearless Films, the guys return to the Overlook for the rare Stephen King sequel, this time being Dr. Sleep. Pete explains how this follow-up to The Shining focuses more on psychic people battling each other, and less on spooky haunted hotels. Little Danny Torrence is all grown up, and battling demons both metaphorically and literally. Kevin squirms as King continues to put children in danger and make us face the horrors of the human condition. He also appreciates...

Episode 60 - The Shining

11/16/2020
On this week's episode of Fearless Films, the guys go on holiday to the infamous Overlook Hotel in Stanley Kubrik's "The Shining." Pete breaks down the classic horror film, from its pioneering of Steadicam technology, to its differences from the Stephen King source material. Nerd warning: Pete may go on a rant about how the book is better (but the movie is still great). Kevin realizes that no where is safe from Stephen King, as this story does not even take place in Maine, but rather the...

Episode 59 - Happy Death Day

11/9/2020
This week on Fearless Films, the guys repeat the same day over and over again with Happy Death Day. Pete explains how a young female college student is caught in a timeloop, and is murdered over and over again by a killer in a baby mask. Unlike the seminal timeloop film, Groundhog's Day, she does not learn how to play the piano with her new free time (however, she does learn to love again). Kevin dreams about all he could get down with that extra time (like learning the piano), but then...

Episode 57- Jason REMAKE

10/26/2020
This week on Fearless Films, the guys confront their most dreaded enemy once again - THE REMAKE. This time they are discussing Friday the 13th (2009). Pete explains how the writers crammed four movies worth of plot into this one film, and yet somehow came up with a shallow series of kills with barely any story holding them together (and that's compared to the 80's slashers this is rebooting). Kevin is barely hanging on after a month of Jason, and finds no respite from this entry. He has...

Episode 56- Friday the 13th Franchise Part 3 - Ending and Epilogue

10/18/2020
This week on Fearless Films, the guys check out the FINAL two chapters of the Friday Franchise. No, for real, the last ones. Promise. First, Kevin gets his wish when Pete explains Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday. We learn that only the blood relative of a Jason can kill him for good and send him to Hell. Just like we learn that he actually has blood relatives at all. And a house. And a book of the dead that is the source of his undeath. Seems like a lot of things that should have been...

Episode 55 - Friday the 13th The Gimmick Years

10/12/2020
This week on Fearless Films, the guys enter the prime of the Friday the 13th series' pop culture influence: The Gimmick Years. From parts 5 through 8, the creators throw in everything but the kitchen sink in order to keep audiences interested in the bloody adventures of Jason Voorhees. We're talking copycat killers, Frankenstein-like revivals from the dead, battling psychic girls, and even visiting the Big Apple itself, New York City. Pete explains how each entry gets crazier and more over...

Episode 54- Friday the 13th Franchise Breakdown Part 1 - The Human Years

10/5/2020

In part 1, Pete breaks down Friday's 2, 3, and 4 - The Human Years. Jason is still just a "regular" human killer, who runs instead of stalks, and struggles to grapple with teenagers instead of bending them in half with super strength. These early entries still have the feeling of late 70's...

Episode 53 - Black Xmas.... AGAIN.

9/29/2020
On this week's episode of Fearless Films, the guys are celebrating their one year anniversary by coming full circle and returning to the haunted place where it all started: Black Christmas!... (2019). Pete is amazed to admit that he actually found a version of Black Christmas that he enjoyed! Turns out, when you remove the shock factor gross-out elements, creepy incest, and erratic jumps in tone, you can actually put out a pretty good movie. Kevin is skeptical, but follows along anyway....

Episode 52- The Faculty

9/22/2020
This week on Fearless Films, the guys have a study session on 1998's The Faculty, a Scream-inspired take on Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Pete explains why a shapeshifting alien overlord chooses to start their invasion in the most ethnically diverse Ohio high school instead of a major metropolitan city. He also wonders why these aliens even bother with a stealthy approach when they seem to be practically invincible as long as they stay hydrated. Kevin tries to keep up with the names and...

Episode 51- Carrie

9/14/2020
