Episode 66: Idle Hands (1999)

Break out your own Mighty Joe Bong, it's the Fried Squirms 4/20 episode! The Squirms relate their history with the Devil's Lettuce before going in on one of their favorite stoner horror/comedies with 99's IDLE HANDS. Zombied friends, a hand that won't listen, Jessica Alba, Weed, hard to spot cameos, this movie has it all and we can't wait to talk about it!


Episode 65: Jason X (2001)

The year is 2455, over 400 years from now, and the Squirms have discovered that only one of the major slasher icons has dared to probe the ridiculousness of this premise. So to celebrate this Friday the 13th, they've decided to thaw out the much derided JASON X! Does Jason chopping up people in space hold as much entertainment as intended? Jump in for the boys' opinion. Warning: Episode contains Tyler's most controversial statement to date


Episode 64: C.H.U.D. (1984)

This week the Fried Squirms take horror to the streets...or rather, under the streets... with 1984's C.H.U.D.! How did mere insults lead us to a creature romp in the sewers? Sit back, listen in and we'll tell you, ya Heard?


Episode 63: Dog Soldiers (2002)

Scotland, land of kilts, haggis, Scots, and....werewolves? This week the Squirms aren't just barking at the moon, they're going all in on their first werewolf movie with DOG SOLDIERS. This movie's premise of werewolves vs soldiers would make the ten year old versions of us squeal with delight, so we go back that far and further to see how werewolf films have touched us through our lives.


Episode 62: Event Horizon (w/ Justin, theme composer/hidden third Squirm))

Where we're going you don't need eyes to see...just ears to hear as we have as a guest the man that gave us a theme, our friend Justin! Along with joining us we gave him choice of movie and from the depths of space he brought us EVENT HORIZON. One spaceship ride to hell later and we're swirling our own black hole of memories, observations and future hopes for this movie!


Episode 61: Headless (2015)

This week we continue being a little meta. FOUND was one of our favorite movies to talk about last year, it's plot involving a slasher movie being the inspiration for a new killer. This is that movie brought to life. This 'lost slasher from 1978' is definitely one of the most straight ahead depraved movies we have done so far!


Episode 60: The Cabin in the Woods (2012)

Five friends go to a cabin filled with unspeakable horror. Sounds familiar right? This week Fried Squirms looks at our most meta movie yet. As this witty movie itself comments on the tropes of the genre and the direction it's heading, we step back and try to examine what it says about the audience and perhaps, what it says about us.


Episode 59: Ernest Scared Stupid (1991)

Sometimes, especially when viewing horror films, you'll find a movie that rocks you so hard you just can't finish it. The Terror overtakes you and you just nope on out of there. Sometimes you find that movie when you are 5 years old. Join us this week as we jump into the Horror/Comedy ERNEST SCARED STUPID, the very first time that Tyler has ever managed to finish it...and listen to why the boys now find it disturbing for a slightly other reason. Trolls, Catwoman, and even Killer Klowns...


Episode 58: Bone Tomahawk (2015)

Sometimes, living out here in the West, life can be slow and hard. You put in lots of time and effort repeatedly doing all the things necessary to scrape a living off the land. The payoff? Getting to live in such a bounteous and beautiful place. The Fried Squirms this week ventured into the western/horror BONE TOMAHAWK and find it to be much the same. Although at times sloggy with things to make sure it's recognizable as a western, the payoff...a beautiful horror movie well worth the...


Episode 57: Test Your Fright vol. 1 (Martyrs w/Sean)

In today's episode we try something new. After doing over a year's worth of recommending movies and talking about what we liked, it was time to find out what our friends can actually handle. To that end we went out, made a friend, and sat him down in front of 2008's MARTYRS and asked him to give a hot take. This is his account after becoming a witness.


Episode 56: The VVitch: A New-England Folktale (2015)

A Puritan family is banished to the frontier only to be tested by evil itself. In hindsight it's obvious the Fried Squirms should have been all over this movie, in reality it took a recommendation from a friend and the need to fill a week when we had to bump other plans, and all we can say about it is Thank Satan! This week the Squirms gush about this beautiful film, break down some points of Calvinism, and possibly put a new spin on it all.


Episode 54: I Saw the Devil (2010)

A fiancee brutally murdered. A secret agent's quest for revenge. A relentless killer. And most importantly, Tyler being able to cross this off his 'to watch list'. The Fried Squirms this week look into an intensely violent and dark revenge tale from South Korea. After this bloody showdown the boys can truly say 'I SAW THE DEVIL'.


Episode 53: Ravenous (1999)

This week the Squirms sink our teeth deep into another one. 1999's RAVENOUS seemed to slip under the radar at the time, but we've always found it to be something special, a movie on the edge of greatness. So when a cowardly Wendigo runs into another out on the frontier, how will their showdown end? After all... "It's lonely being a cannibal; tough making friends." BONUS! Music by Michael Nyman (THE PIANO) and Damon Albarn (BLUR, GORILLAZ)


Episode 52: Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954)

This week the Fried Squirms decide to kick it old school and start the new year off on the right flipper with the classic CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON. Listen in as the boys finally get to talk classic Universal, marvel at a science-first America, and probably assume a bunch about a different movie that neither of us has seen.


Episode 51: Inside (2007)

A holiday treat for you all! Family memories, visitors, the birth of a child on Christmas...what could be more perfect? Probably anything else. Fried Squirms returns with an extreme tale of home invasion from France. A newly widowed pregnant woman has a stranger come calling Christmas Eve and carnage that follows is sure to wipe to saccharine sweetness of the season from every mouth.


Episode 50: Celebrations and Origins (w/ Jesse of Smokin' the Breeze)

This week the Fried Squirms take a week away from horror to celebrate making it 50 episodes in! Our friend Jesse comes on to help us re-hash the origins of the show, play games, and talk about some of our favorite (and not so favorite) things we've done so far! From the King of Cartoons to way too many shrooms this show is truly a look into how it all started. THANK YOU ALL for helping this happen and we can't wait to continue bringing you some of our favorite horror.


Episode 49: Opera

Finally this week the boy's get around to another legend in horror, and one of Danny's faves, with their breakdown of Dario Argento's OPERA. As a killer starts terrorizing the set and star of The Scottish Opera, the Squirms squeal with joy in all the rabbit-holes they get to go down in regards to this movie. From Phantom to metal to british comedy, it all relates back somehow in this latest episode of Fried Squirms!


Episode 48: The Belko Experiment

It's another week back at the office for the Fried Squirms. Red pencil, red stapler, red monitor....oh wait, that's just blood. THE BELKO EXPERIMENT highlights how truly cutthroat an office setting can be when the right conditions are put in place. So come on in and get it's performance review straight from the Fried Squirms!


Episode 47: The Shining (commentary w/ Reiley of Into the Echo, and Patrick!)

This week of Fried Squirms presents to you a very special episode. In order to take on the grandiosity of Stanley Kubrick's THE SHINING we needed a guide and realized nothing would suffice but the movie itself. So we gathered TWO new in-studio guests (artist/musician/inspiration PK, and Reiley of music podcast Into the Echo), turned the movie on, and then blathered on over the top of it. So sync up your own copy of THE SHINING and listen along as we stumble into beautiful and dark...


Episode 46: Frailty

This week the Fried Squirms bring you a tale of two brothers and their struggling single father. Unfortunately for the boys' psyches what their father is struggling with is his next victim. Father killing demons could confirm the identity of a new killer, but it certainly identifies a movie that causes the boys to go Cruising through a number of topics, all while being blown away by Bill Paxton's directorial debut!
