The audio at the beginning of the episode is pretty bad, due to technical problems that had our guest's audio dropping out occasionally, but it DOES clear up fairly quickly, so please bear with us.

Ep. #332 - Primal

1/2/2021
Cagemas comes but once a year! Unless, since this one is a little late, it will technically come twice this year, and none times last year. It's confusing. It's annual is what we're saying. We celebrate the work of Saint Nicolas Cage this time with a discussion of the snakes-on-a-boat-and-also-other-animals thriller Primal. And for an august occasion like this one, you need a special guest! So this episode we welcome hilarious sweetheart Josh Gondelman of Desus & Mero and his book Nice Try.

FH Mini #20 - Novel Tees

Ep. #331 - Six Weeks, with Alonso Duralde

12/19/2020
We've been wanting to get Alonso Duralde on the show for a while -- not only because he's the senior film critic for The Wrap, and not only because he's the host or co-host of a number of podcasts, including Max Fun's own Who Shot Ya?, but because he literally wrote the book on Christmas movies. So, of course, this holiday season he picked a movie that barely sort of has Christmas stuff in it -- the double-Moore weepie Six Weeks. THANKS FOR NOTHING, BUDDY! (jk - he's a delight.)

Ep. #330 - Freaky, with Barbara Crampton

12/12/2020
We break out of our normal format a bit for this BONUS EPISODE! How so? Well, #1, we watched a movie that we were all pretty sure we'd like (and, spoiler alert, we did) -- the body-swap horror-comedy "Freaky," and #2, instead of doing letters and recommendations, we take a bit of extra time to talk to our guest about her long career. Who is that guest? The wonderful Barbara Crampton, star of legendary horror movies Re-Animator, From Beyond, You're Next, and a little movie that doesn't get...

Ep. #328 - Happy Halloween, Scooby Doo!, with Justin McElroy

11/21/2020
Greeting boils and ghouls and gender non-kill-forming! For the spooookiest holiday of the year, Thanksgiving, we discuss the very appropriate Happy Halloween, Scooby Doo! Why? Well, we ask our guest, the hilarious absolute sweetheart, Justin McElroy, that very question -- you may know him as one of the hosts of Max Fun's own My Brother My Brother and Me, The Adventure Zone, Sawbones, and many other podcasts you should probably be listening to instead of our nonsense. See all that he's up to...

Ep. #327 - Men In Black: International, with Annabelle Gurwitch

11/7/2020
And so we arrive at November, so named because it has no special theme. And, folks, we'll admit... this MIB: International episode is a weird one. Why? Well, finding out is part of the fun. But our guest for this show is Annabelle Gurwitch, from Max Fun's new Tiny Victories podcast, as well as TBS's Dinner and a Movie, countless acting roles, and quite a few books. Enjoy.

The Flop House Post Election Mood Enhancer - Bratz Commentary

11/4/2020
Hi everyone. Was digging through the archives to see if there was anything we could release today, because it seems like maybe people could use a distraction right now. Anyway, found this old recording of the audio from one of our earliest live shows, way back in 2013, where we riffed over the movie Bratz, and decided to make it public (there are MP3s floating around, but we never put it on the main feed). In the past we were worried that you could hear the audio to the movie in the...

FH Mini 17 - The Monster Mash

10/31/2020
2020 may be miserable, but it's STILL HALLOWEEN DAMN IT. So we assembled a crack team of the Flop House gang, plus comedy writers Mike Reiss and Ken Keeler (who, between them, are responsible for much of the greatness of The Simpsons, The Critic, and Futurama) to discuss the most important and timely issue possible -- the 1962 novelty hit, The Monster Mash. Also, if you're reading this on the day of release, 10/31, you still have until midnight to donate to charity and be entered in our...

Ep. #326 - Uninvited, with Gillian Flynn

10/24/2020
Our guest this week is Gillian Flynn, bestselling author of Gone Girl, Sharp Objects, and Dark Places, showrunner for Amazon's Utopia, screenwriter of Widows and adaptations of her own work, winner of the Edgar Award, and BAFTA nominee. We have no idea why she agreed to do this either. But we're happy she did, because for our second and final SHOCKTOBER 2020 movie, our horror-aficionado guest picked Uninvited, and it was amazing! (to be clear, this is not THE Uninvited from 2009, which The...
