Scream 2 (1997) (SSS 55)

#ScreamMonth rolls on (even if slightly delayed) here on Saw Something Scary! This time we're picking up with the sequel - full not only of the same kind of self-aware commentary that made the first such a surprise hit but even some additional wink-and-nod commentary. Does it work as a film? Does it work as a time capsule? Does it work as a scary movie? Hit that download button, press play, and find out in the latest episode of Saw Something Scary!


Scream (1996) (SSS 54)

March 2018 is Scream Month on the Saw Something Scary Podcast! That's right - we're going back to the quintessential 90's horror slasher movie, the mother to A New Nightmare's father of meta-horror, 1996's Scream. On the way we'll talk about the [insert adjective] shenanigans with The Shape of Water and Get Out at the 2018 Academy Awards after a little Jeff Hates Trailers. Hit that download button, press play, and let's go see Sidney, Gale, and Deputy Dewey!


The Ritual (SSS 53)

It isn't even March and yet 2018 already has its surprise horror-hit, Norse-wilderness dreadfest The Ritual. This film is garnering lots of praise for putting a fresh coat of paint on several well-know horror tropes but without feeling regurgitated. But you want to know if it is scary. So hit download, press play, and head out into the woods of The Ritual with the guys from Saw Something Scary and find out!


Oculus [2013] (SSS 52)

Ok, so we were totally wrong on Episode 47 that we had covered all of Mike Flanagan's films. So... um... this episode fixes that error! Oculus kinda put Flanagan on the map so I guess it's fitting that Saw Something Scary finishes up his filmography (for now) with this particular film. So hit that download button, press play, and let's step through the mirror into the world of Oculus on this episode of The Triple S podcast! Website listeners can stream this episode on TuneIn here!


The Shape of Water (Still Trying Out the New Format!) (SSS 51)

Either Get Out or The Shape of Water stands the best chance of landing the horror genre a Best Picture Oscar win. That means that even though the The Shape of Water isn't necessarily horrifying (stay tuned to find out!) it is Oscar bait. So what we have in this film is a non-horrifying Horror movie working as Oscar bait that uses Sally Hawkins as fish bait. Here's where you can find that killer content you've come to expect from Saw Something Scary: Review - 1:40 Jeff Hates Trailers...


Tragedy Girls (And Trying Out a New Format!) (SSS 50)

This week the guys from Saw Something Scary connect with the Tragedy Girls, an (already?) cult hit that has intrigued the online horror community since it first started making the rounds at film festivals in the Fall of 2017. The film is available on multiple platforms now (Amazon, for instance) so it is high time for your guides to your next scare to give you the heads up on whether or not these girls can deliver a legit chill down your spine or not. Also on this episode you'll hear the...
