Ep 43 - A Nightmare on Elm Street + music from I-DEF-I

Sweet dreams are made of this? Iconic, influential and widely revered, A Nightmare on Elm Street elevated director Wes Craven and his demonic dream demon Freddy Kruger to iconic status. Blurring the lines between fantasy and fiction, the films high concept premise rejuvenated the slasher genre for a new generation. Sue chats the savage sleepstalker, who’s ominous beginnings are grounded in reality, Eastern religion and Gary Wright's synth-tastic ‘Dream Weaver’ (I know)! We’ll also be...

Ep 42 - Gremlins + music from Conjurer

Brash, bizarre and brilliant, Gremlins is one of the least traditional and best loved Christmas movies of all time. Sue chats the festive classic, looking with rose-tinted favour at a film which gets both children and adults sentimental around the holidays. From Christopher Columbus’ unique and unconventional script, to Joe Dante's idiosyncratic aptitude for big screen translation, every element perfectly captures an anarchic 1980’s zeitgeist. We’ll also be checking out the latest...

Ep 41 - 30 Days of Night + music from Sikth

Bleak, brutal and bloody, David Slade’s big screen adaptation of the acclaimed graphic novel, revamped and revived the legacy of fanged fiends, re-establishing them as heartless undead killers and reigniting the notion that they’re to be feared, rather than fancied. Sue chat’s the survivalist horror, comparing source with adaptation, and rejoicing in the carnage that creatures of the night were once again allowed to revel in. We’ll also be checking out the latest single, The Aura, from...

Ep 40 - Bram Stoker's Dracula + music from Hellripper

A delicious romantic epic that depicts the lengths one goes to for love? Or a diabolical wanky nightmare? Despite mixed opinion, there’s no denying that Francis Ford Coppolas majestic retelling of the Stoker classic, has revived and revitalized the tale for a new generation. As divisive as it is distinct, the films mastery over the macabre is a faithful and ostentatious adaptation of the cherished classic. Sue chat’s the opulent affair, championing old school cinematic techniques,...

Ep 39 - Little Shop of Horrors + music from Dreamreaper

Cultivating a cult following who’re left hungry for more, Little Shop of Horrors has proven that given the right environment and tender nurturing, a bizarre premise can blossom into one of the most beloved movies from the 1980’s. Sue chats the iconic comedy-rock-horror, that proved that as a director, Frank Oz was no muppet, and that the combined prowess of comedy legends, can result in a total eclipse of the sun! We’ll also be getting our groove on to the synthtastic electro-stylings...

Ep 38 - Akercocke Interview

Innovative, brutal and wholly unique, Akercocke have continually flouted musical convention to create an undefinable and unmistakable sound, one that defies classification by being undeniably idiosyncratic. Returning to the scene after a decade long hiatus, Sue chats to frontman Jason Mendonca and drummer David Gray, about touring their newest album, the writing process, and the demise of individualism in apathetic times. The key to their success? Well, it may just come surrounded by a...

Ep 37 - Death Becomes Her

Gloriously grisly, furiously bitchy and downright gorgeous, Death Becomes Her is a spectacular showcase of technology and talent which has only improved with age. Following the toxic friendship and self perpetuated downfall of two shallow, self obsessed horrors, the films satirical edge and close to the bone themes resonate with an insight that's still relevant, and has secured it’s position as a beloved cult classic. Sue looks at one of her cherished and nostalgia tinged movies from...

Ep 36 - Beetlejuice + music from Disciples of Babylon

Haunting, cartoonish, buffoonish and iconic. Beetlejuice has become a cult Halloween staple following it’s release in 1988. From A-list actors and over the top concepts to amazing visuals and eerie tones, Tim Burton's macabre masterpiece is nothing but a spooktacle to behold. Kicking off a series featuring All Hallows Eve classics, Sue chat’s the a-typical adventure, it’s individualistic and incomparable aesthetic, and the universal appeal that it has for audiences - young and old! We’ll...

Ep 35 - The Craft + music from Akercocke

Now is the time. This is the hour. Ours is the magic. Ours is the power. Still bewitching and beguiling two decades after it’s release, The Craft has invoked a cult appeal that speaks to generations of creepy kids, inspired and empowered by its counterculture characters and flair for fashion. Sue chats wicked Wiccans, the influence on popular culture, and an enduring legacy brought about by relatability within a fantastical situation. We’ll also be checking out the latest single, One...

Ep 34 - An American Werewolf in London

Awooooooo! Get ready to howl at the moon, as Sue chat’s* John Landis’ outstanding horror comedy An American Werewolf in London.

Ep 33 - Actor spotlight double feature starring Bruce Campbell + music from Battalions

"A cult classic is one that has been fully embraced by an alternative audience, not the popular audience." - Bruce Campbell. Actor boy. Raconteur. B-movie king. Bruce Campbell is a cult hero to some and ‘that guy with the chin’ to others. Gaining notoriety through video nasty favourite Evil Dead, he has hacked and slashed his way to the top, proving that with tenacity, and a chainsaw, anything is possible. Sue takes a look at two of his movies, that have the low budget, classic Campbell...

Ep 32 - The Lost Boys + music from Akercocke

Ever felt like your sibling was transforming into a monster? Sam Emerson does, and when his brother Michael starts hanging out with the local in-crowd, he quickly realises, that it's first come, first staked. It's been 30 years since Joel Schumacher's cult classic was released, and the film is still as relevant and revered today, an immortal classic that helped to redefine vampires for a new generation, thanks to iconic characters to imminently quotable dialogue. Sue looks at the legacy...

Based on the Marvel comics of the same name, Blade focuses on our titular hero, a half-man, half-vampire hybrid, who dedicates his nights (and days) to combating his bloodsucking enemies.

Hail to the King Baby! It's been 25 years since the release of Army of Darkness, the final chapter of Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead trilogy. To celebrate, Sue has a retrospective of the madcap medieval movie, which exchanges scary shenanigans in the confines of a cabin, for 13th century comedic capers.
