Horror Movie Podcast Ep. 109: Split (2017) and The Bye Bye Man (2017) and The Best Damn 2017 Horror Preview on the Internet

HMP-109-2017-Horror-Preview-Art

Happy 2017! We usually at least feign humility on HORROR MOVIE PODCAST, but this four-hour and thirty minute episode has to be The Best Damn 2017 Horror Preview on the Internet. Or at least the most thorough. Damn right!

New listeners may find this particular episode to be quite unusual because we spend much of the time simply talking about release titles and dates, rather than reviewing movies, but there is also plenty of discussion about our most anticipated upcoming films when Jay of the Dead, Dr. Shock, and Wolfman Josh begin with the first Friday in January and discuss just about every known horror release, week by week, for 2017.

Afterward, Jay and Wolfman bring you one of their famous two-handers with a review of M. Night Shyamalan’s Split (2017), including a separate spoiler-section. Wolfman Josh also brings you a feature review of Stacy Title’s The Bye Bye Man (2017) and reports on whether Ti West’s In the Valley of Violence (2016) is a horror movie. And it wouldn’t be HMP if Jay of the Dead didn’t do a little rabble-rousing… Prepare to be up in arms! Continue reading

Alright, I’m just gonna say it: The Visit scared the hell out of me.

Written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan, this 2015 movie follows brother and sister Rebecca and Tyler Jamison (Olivia DeJonge and Ed Oxenbould) as they journey to a small Pennsylvania town to spend a week with their estranged grandparents. Their mother Paula (Kathryn Hahn) had left home 15 years earlier to marry the kids’ father, a man her parents didn’t approve of, and she hasn’t spoken to either of them since. Even after the marriage fell apart (he left her for another woman, and now lives in California), Paula stubbornly refused to reconcile with her mother and father. Then, out of the blue, they contact her, asking if they could meet their grandchildren. So, after saying their goodbyes, Rebecca and Tyler climb aboard a train and are off to spend time with an elderly couple they’ve never met before.
