HEREDITARY / PET SEMETARY (1989): Grief and Belief

5/5/2022
There’s no wrong way to grieve, but there certainly is an unhealthy way. Say… calling on the power of demons/unknown cosmic forces to bring the dead back to life only to have them go on a murder spree. That’s pretty unhealthy, don’t you think? The Cadaver Dogs take a trip to the afterlife in this episode as they walk through the many examples of grief in two horror film staples. First up is the original Ari Aster movie HEREDITARY (starring Toni Colette, Gabriel Byrne, Milly Shapiro, Alex...

BLACK ROSES / WE SUMMON THE DARKNESS: Metalsploitation

NIGHTCRAWLER / THE NIGHT FLIER: Tabloids of Terror

3/4/2022
“Never believe what you publish, and never publish what you believe.” These are the words of wisdom echoed by tabloid journalists everywhere… and maybe even by “legitimate” reporters? In an age where fake news persists, by what skewered code does the media abide? What lines will journalists cross, and who might they hurt in the process? We’re talking bloodsuckers, airplanes, and the National Inquirer in our first movie THE NIGHT FLIER (1997), a Stephen King adaptation in which Miguel Ferrer...

Bad acting. Bad scripts. INCREDIBLE effects. The Cadaver Dogs take a schlock-tastic voyage during their analysis of two international cult classics. What makes these movies so bad they’re good?

AUDITION / FRANKENHOOKER: The Perfect Woman

Want a date? But with whom? What are the ideals and standards of perfection that men hold women to in modern society? The Cadaver Dogs are pulling back the curtains on the unrealistic expectations we hold in relationships, and the destructive – sometimes explosive – consequences.
