Ep220: Midsommar – WGT

Rejoice, ya dorks, for summer is finally here! The time has come for rockets red glare, summer loving, bonfires and bar-b-ques. Just like every hot dog is bound to split its bun, every A24 film is bound to split the horror community. Well, it is my job to inform you, the split has happened again.

The latest release from “elevated horror” juggernaut A24 is Midsommar, Ari Aster’s follow up to 2018’s Hereditary. (Review starts at 30:11) As you would imagine, the highly anticipated release has the horror community split right down the center, and the Who Goes There Podcast is no exception. This week we’re joined by Patreon haomie, and author of I’m Not Even Supposed to Be Here Today Brian Asman to dissect this film like a big ole’ grizzly bear! Is Midsommar the atmospheric nightmare it claims to be, or is it just a holiday in the sun?

Who loved it? Did anyone hate it? What are the odds that Matt didn’t understand what went on? Tune in to find out, dummy!

These people just have a stoned look on their face. Get it? It’s the Who Goes There Podcast episode 220!

Ep219: Arachnophobia – WGT

Are you aware of the fact that there are a group of people out there who are afraid of pasta?! Yessir, the fear of pasta is a completely real thing and it’s called Zymarikaphobia. I know what you’re thinking, and I completely agree with you, it’s stupid. You know what fear is not stupid? The fear of spiders is not stupid. As a matter of fact, the fear of spiders is so incredibly not stupid that Hollywood made a movie about it!

This week on the Who Goes There Podcast we will wax poetic about 1990’s Arachnophobia, the story of one spider’s travels from the the jungles of Venezuela to the middle of nowhere America. (Review starts at 22:56) In addition, we run down some of the other movies we’ve seen this week including Flesh Blanket, Winterskin and Dead Don’t Die. Do you want to hear us talk about the ways we used to get faded at school? We do that too; it’s hella tight.

You’re lying. It didn’t die. You took it. You’re lying. You witches! You’re lying! You’re LYING! It’s the Who Goes There Podcast episode 219!

Ep218: Child’s Play – WGT

Alright everyone, let’s be honest with ourselves here for just a second. Most of us hate the fact that a good amount of the “new” movies released every year, are remakes. Furthermore, most of us are really stoked that the majority of these remakes are hot garbage. Even further still, most of us took to the internet with a fervent anger when we heard that a Child’s Play reboot was in the works.

Yes. A lot of the anger came from the sensitive group of “qUiT rApInG mY cHildHoOd, LeAvE mY fAvOrItE mOvIe AlOnE!” fanboys we’ve learned to expect and ignore. However, the new Child’s Play remake is a different beast entirely. This particular remake is being made with a reimagined antagonist, without the now iconic voice of Chucky (Brad Dourif), and is being made at the same time as a Child’s Play TV show that DOES have OG Chucky, voiced by Brad Dourif! Wowie Zowie!

Fear not, lil’ dorks! Your buddies at the Who Goes There Podcast are hear to open up 2019’s Child’s Play to “see what we’re working with.” (Review starts at 25:44)

I’ve got a few heartbeats I’d like to save, thank you very much. It’s the Who Goes There Podcast episode 218!

Ep217: Event Horizon – WGT

Here at the Who Goes There Podcast we pride ourselves on being 100% honest and genuine in our reviews, and sometimes that rubs people the wrong way. Thankfully it has been a while since we’ve really pissed anyone off, and well, that just isn’t going to cut it.

We’re going to (try to) start doing regularly scheduled “throwback” episodes, where we look into films released prior to 2000; this is the first of those episodes. We’ll be going balls deep into the cult classic/fan favorite/Kurt Russell approved Event Horizon. (Review starts at 25:43) This is destined to be one of the most divisive episodes in WGT history.

Now I have another reason to hate Christmas. It’s the Who Goes There Podcast episode 217!

Ep216: Black Mirror Season 5 – WGT

It’s an undeniable fact that technology has infiltrated every single aspect of our lives. In a day and age where our refrigerators and dishwashers have wifi it’s virtually impossible to escape the cold, metallic clutches of technology. For this reason, Netflix’s Black Mirror has become one of the most creative and original franchises in quite some time.

Now, we find ourselves staring down the release of the highly anticipated fifth season of the tumultuous technological terror. We’re going to exploring the bits and bytes of the three new episodes. (Review starts at 35:33) As always we run down the latest in horror news and give our opinions on a handful of films including: Bloody Bloody Bible Camp, The Odds, and Some Guy Who Kills People.

Black Mirror

There’s a bunch of kids over there in the cemetery… I know what they’re doing in there. It’s that damn Who Goes There Podcast episode 216!

Ep215: Ma – WGT

Ahoy there, dorks! We’re back up in that ass with the resurrection! That’s just our fancy way of saying we’re back with another episode of hilarious horror hijinks…for your ass. This episode is pretty front loaded, so if you want to skip right to our thoughts on tonight’s film, skip to the 46:00 mark.

All of us here at Who Goes There are getting pretty tired of hearing the name “Blumhouse” before every cinematic horror release. When you hear “Blumhouse” you get a very clear idea of what type of film you’re about to see. Much like with Troma, and Full Moon, Blumhouse definitely has a “type” when it comes to the films they release. This week, we’ll be discussing 2019’s Ma to see if it’s as wild as a high school kegger, or if it’s “just another Blumhouse film.”

In addition to Ma we also give our thoughts on quite a few new releases, including Recovery, The Cleaning Lady, and The Silence. We’ve also got a heaping helping of horror news for ya; there was a lot to discuss this week.

It’s the Who Goes There Podcast episode 215 and it …probably contain more than 100,000,000,000 birds!

Ep214: Brightburn – WGT

Look! Up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s… finally the end of the Marvel Cinematic Universe! I don’t know about you, but I have had it up to my tits with all of the superhero movies being shoved down our throats. For the last twelve years almost every film has been: weak villain attacks, fly, punch, celebrate, repeat. However, unlike zombies, the superhero genre has several ways of keeping itself feel fresh and interesting.

You may be asking yourself, “but how can superhero movies keep from feeling stale?”. To which I reply, “calm down, I’ll tell you! Have you learned nothing of how this works?” Superhero films can stay relevant by changing up the formula on occasion. For example they can make the super being a child, or make it a villain story, or in the case of Brightburn, you can do both! (Review starts at 21:30)

If that wasn’t enough to tickle your pickle, we also discuss our advance directives and how easily Alia could murder Matt. Rhett forgets this is a horror show again, Alia tries to relate everything to getting freaky, Jorge can’t even, it’s just another day at the Who Goes There Podcast.

Look to la luna; it’s the Who Goes There Podcast episode 214!

Ep213: Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile

For some reason, these days, everyone and their mom is a fan of serial killers and true crime. True crime podcasts are currently among the most successful shows available, even if they’re more known for their terrible jokes than their educational values. What lies deep inside of us that sparks this fascination for brutal murderers who commit unspeakable acts?

Guess what. You won’t find the answer to that here, because we’re better known for our terrible jokes than anything actually informative. We did however pull out our big fat opinions for the new Ted Bundy love letter, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil & Vile. (Review starts at 28:50)

If this wasn’t enough for you we also talk a little bit about the new show Chernobyl. There’s also some more talk of remakes and other horror news for your earholes.

Ep212: Black Summer – WGT

Let’s be honest, shall we? The majority of us now roll our eyes at the announcement of any new zombie movie or show. The Walking Dead has been shambling on for far too long, and has been dragging the corpse of interesting zombie media with it.

As summer draws ever closer, Netflix is hoping that the spring rains will have washed away the years of shitty-zombie-stink and has brought us Black Summer. (Review starts at 27:50) Did Netflix bite off more than it can chew with its ambitious zombie series? Will the scorching summer sun intensify the stench on the corpse of a once beloved sub-genre? Or will the dead rise once again to reclaim their spot at the top of the horror heap? Let’s find out!

Ep211: The Curse of La Llorona – WGT

Happy Cinco de Mayo, pendejos! This is the one time of the year that Jorge reminds us all that he IS in fact Mexican. We’re throwing our kids in the creek and getting stupid as fuck with the newest jump scare extravaganza. Join us, as we cook Trader Joes carne asada, drink craft beer designed to look like Tecate, and listen to Mexican ska. Oh yeah, we’re also going to talk about The Curse of La Llorona. (Review starts at 30:55)

I normally go through an agonizing process of trying to find something fun, informative, or interesting to write here; not today. I’m on vacation in Belgium right now and have been trying to post this for two days. So in order to meet the required word count I’m just telling you this. This right here. Yup, all these things that I’m saying now are for the word count. Will anyone read it? Probably not, just don’t tell Barkan.

Son, if you ever say another derogatory word about Elvis Aron Presley in my presence again, I will kick the living shit out of you! This here is the Who Goes There Podcast episode 211!
