#35: Wes Craven's New Nightmare

Liz and Evan are celebrating one full year of watching all the horror movies currently streaming on Netflix (so you don’t have to). This week, it’s one you should watch while you can: Wes Craven’s New Nightmare. Join them as they laud the film as a metafictional masterpiece, unpacking its interest in the relationship between monsters and storytellers and gushing (of course) about their favorite director and horror icon.

The corn is well pleased this week as Liz and Evan walk behind the rows to unpack their complicated feelings about the cult classic CHILDREN OF THE CORN.

This week, Liz and Evan travel into the world of Jewish mysticism and emerge with more questions than ever as they tackle THE UNBORN, the schlocky brainchild of DC super-scribe David S. Goyer.

#30: The Invasion

Liz and Evan are finally back, and just in time to get invaded: this week, they break down the alien abductions and action sequences of THE INVASION, the messy 2007 sort-of remake of the body-snatching classic(s). Join them as they wince at the film's troubled production history, lament Nicole Kidman’s obvious disinterest in her role, and realize they just can’t agree on the best way for aliens to snatch those bodies. If you, too, are worried about alien abduction, then be sure to check...

#28: Dead Silence

Beware the stare of Mary Shaw, and be ready for some bad decisions as Liz and Evan tackle the disastrously dour DEAD SILENCE.

#26: Shark Lake

Earth is a bad neighborhood, folks. That’s clearer than ever this week, as Liz and Evan suffered through the absurd and action-packed waste of time SHARK LAKE.

#25: The Human Centipede (First Sequence)

Hey listener! What an insane world we live in, eh? This week Liz and Evan forced themselves to discuss THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE(FIRST SEQUENCE), and it just may have ruined Evan's life. Join them as they disagree about several aspects of the movie, including the "meaning"(or lack thereof), the turpitude of Dieter Laser's Dr. Heiter (or lack thereof), and how this movie rates amongst Now Screaming's Least Wanted.

#24: The Lazarus Effect

Liz and Evan have been working late in the lab to bring this week’s episode to life: THE LAZARUS EFFECT (which is most certainly not a documentary about food). Join them as they temper their excitement about the excellent cast with their confusion with the film’s failure to stick the landing, and ask big questions about pseudoscience and zombie communities along the way.

#21: Asmodexia

This week, Liz and Evan continue their journey abroad and traverse the dusty roads of Spain with ASMODEXIA, the podcast’s second exorcism movie (and third foreign-language film).

#20: Baskin

Feeling surreal? This week, Liz and Evan descend into pure entropy with BASKIN, purportedly the 8th Turkish film to ever reach American shores.
