J.R. attends the Scary Movies 11 Festival at Lincoln Center and Derek has too much free time as the duo discuss a ton of new horror films and fiction. In a spoiler-free discussion, J.R. highly recommends The Witch in the Window , and then largely recommends Await Further Instructions , Anna and the Apocalypse and the more-polarizing film Hurt, while Derek recommends Brimstone, which seemed to fall under the radar. J.R. was fitfully amused by Blood Paradise and is more mixed about What Keeps You Alive and the entertaining but glib Lords of Chaos. J.R. can’t recommend Boogeyman Pop, and stay far, far away from The Inhabitant. Derek, as expected, dismisses Hellraiser: Judgment but perhaps not as harshly as you would expect, unlike The Meg, The First Purge, and Mom and Dad, which are easily dismissed. They also briefly cover Castle Rock, House of Leaves and Stephen King’s The Outsider, and give a collective “meh” to Veronica. Lastly, the weird fiction collection The Weird lives up to its namesake and is recommend if you have 3 months.
