Happy Holidays! This week, we're switching it up by attempting something we've never done before... a fan commentary for the '96 festive flick Santa Claws, starring Debbie Rochon! It's one helluva B-movie that exudes cheese, extreme 90s vibes, the holiday season, slasher-ing, and, most importantly, FUN! 

If you've seen it, great! And if not, it's still fun to listen to us ramble! I swear. Really, we spend about 50% of the podcast talking about 90s jeans anyway. 

We also preview the next episode: a look back at the Waxwork movies. 

Drinking game options: Every time we say "cultivator" or "jeans butt." Just go with it.

Happy holidays, friends! This week, we dive right into Christmas by chatting up a redemption viewing of Silent Night Deadly Night 2 (1987). We also rewatch the loose SNDN remake, Silent Night (2012) and discuss (is it still forgettable?). 

We also talk about recent movie viewings -- including a lot of Thanksgiving and holiday flicks -- and preview the next very special episode (a fan commentary for Santa Claws). 

Drinking game options: Every time Santa Claus is mentioned. 'Nuff said.

Move over horror, this week we dive into the other bloody genre - ACTION! And for this episode, we each list our top 8 action movies (warning: there is slight overlap). From Stallone and Statham, to Lundgren and Schwarzenegger, we got you covered. 

And we pinpoint our action blind spots -- ahem, Van Damme and Norris. 

As always, we also chat up recent movie viewings (including the last of the Halloween romps) and preview what's in store for the holiday season.

NOTE: The Blood Rage #TerrorTweet event mentioned in the podcast has been rescheduled for Friday, November 25 (BLACK FRIDAY). 

Drinking game options: Every time Johnny's pick involves something sci-fi; when you hear Joanna's sick voice coming through.

Every movie deserves a second (or third) chance, right? Sure, why not. So, this week, we continue our October celebration by re-watching two movies we did not care for (at all) with our first viewings: Rob Zombie's Halloween II  and Satan's Little Helper. So, did they redeem themselves with fresh eyes and lower expectations? Find out!

We also chat up Halloween happenings on the Bloody Popcorn website, recent movie viewings (Ernest Scared Stupid, The Shallows, and more), and preview the next (and last Halloween-inspired) episode! 

Drinking game options: Every time Johnny mentions disliking STC's Laurie; every time Joanna mentions disliking Dougie.

FALL IS HERE! So, this week, we kick-start our celebration with our first Halloween-inspired episode. And here we revisit Night of the Demons '88 and '09! It's a campy trip complete with demonic dancing and lipstick (obviously).  

We also talk up A LOT of recent movie and TV viewings, plus preview all things Halloween for Bloody Popcorn! (YAY)

Drinking game options: When lipstick, boobs, and/or any movie other than Night of the Demons are discussed.

On this week's podcast, Joanna and Johnny discuss horror (and cult) movie blind spots! You know, those movies we really should have seen by now, but haven't for whatever reason. 

From Carpenter to Craven, it's a mixed bag. Fun fact: One we've watched since this recording -- and one we'll never watch. 

We also talk about recent movie viewings, our next #TerrorWeet, and preview the next episode topic (our first Halloween-inspired episode)!

Drinking game options: Every time a major director is mentioned.

This week, as all the kiddies head back to school for another year of learning stuff, we discuss our favorite school-related genre moments in pop culture. Movies, TV, and maybe even a music video -- we break it down.

Joanna and Johnny each selected 7 pics and -- spoiler -- there's a little overlap. Cough, cough, Buffy. But it's OK because ... Buffy. 

We also chat up recent movie viewings (including Swamp ThingModel HungerFoul Play, and more); Halloween happenings at Bloody Popcorn; and preview the next episode (horror movie blind spots). 

Drinking game options: Every time we goof something; every time Halloween is mentioned (ahem, it's a lot).

What's your favorite horror movie of the past five years? What flick could actually benefit from a remake? What horror movie character, director, and fictional band would you want to hang with on a desert island? We ask each other these questions and many more on this week's tangent of an episode!

So, join us as we ramble about Goldie Hawn (and Kurt Russell), fawn over Club Dread (again), and determine a modern day scream queen! 

We also discuss recent movie viewings (including Over The Top and the most recent Ghostbusters reboot) and preview the next episode ("Back to School!").

We also talk about recent movie viewings, including Vault of Horror, The Toxic Crusaders and this year's Green Room. Warning: things get serious for a moment.

This July marks the 10-year anniversary of when Joanna and Johnny started dating. Ten years is kind of a big deal, so... this episode looks back at 2006 movie moments! It was tough, but we narrowed it down to 10 horror movies and one pretty special non-horror movie (plus a couple other mentions).

From The Hills Have Eyes remake to Snakes on a Plane, this year was eventful for "mainstream" horror. Not a bad year -- except for Pulse. So, join us as we celebrate this selection of 10-year-old flicks.

We also discuss recent movie viewings, including the entire Purge franchise.

Drinking game options: Every time we use the word "remake" or say "Final Destination."

Join us as we each talk about our top 8 horror movies from the '90s. They're secret picks -- and, for the first time ever, we have overlap movies! We realize just how varied the '90s were, and really it just makes us miss video stores.

It's PROM SEASON! Sort of. So, let's celebrate by counting down some exceptional horror movie dance-related scenes. We're not picky -- it's doesn't have to be Prom. We'll accept Homecoming, Spring Fling, etc.. 

We dive into horror, horror-comedy -- and a few non-genre picks as well, of course! 

We also discuss recent movie viewings (The Poseidon Adventure, She's Too Young, etc), Franchise Fridays (Porky's and soon-to-be Basketcase). And we preview the next episode: 90s horror movies. 

Drinking game options: Every time Johnny sniffles. SERIOUSLY.

Don't run... you know you're curious ... because this week's episode has Johnny and Joanna discussing two ridiculous mom-related Lifetime movies! If the thought of one of these films terrifies you, please allow us to plead our case for A Deadly Adoption and Mother, May I Sleep with Danger?

We also discuss recent movie viewings, MORE worthy Lifetime movies, and preview the next episode. Hint: It's prom-themed. What?

This week, Johnny and Joanna each pick 5 sequels (unbeknownst to the other) that they enjoy more than the original -- attempting to avoid the obvious, i.e. Aliens and Evil Dead 2. What ensues is a pretty rad conversation -- as some choices are a little, ahem, controversial. 

Drinking game options: Every time you hear Johnny yawn.

Then join us as we "deep dive" into two fresh(water) first-time watches: Shark Lake and Jersey Shore Shark Attack

This week on the podcast, we celebrate Joanna's birthday by selecting movies from 1983 (the year she was born) to discuss! Both Joanna and Johnny selected 5 movies (kind of) from 1983 -- favorite movies, movies that have a particular meaning, etc.

1983 Movies

Also discussed: recent movie viewings, the spring break giveaway (ENDS TODAY, April 8), and more! 

Drinking game options: Every time Joanna and/or Johnny sniffle or cough (we're getting over being sick). When you hear a dog snore (yes, that dog is BACK -- at least for the last 20 minutes or so).

Join us this week as we dish on a recent movie viewing (The Perfect Guy - yeah, that movie), anticipation for seeing The Witch, and the episode's main topic: convention memories and stories!

We are pleased to introduce our first episode for the Bloody Popcorn Podcast! Please join us as we discuss our horror origins, some "off the beaten path" couples (for Valentine's Day), and a bunch of other tangents. 

Keep in mind, we're still working out a few kinks (i.e. barking dogs), so bear with us. We had fun chatting it up and hope you enjoy this inaugural effort!

-Joanna & Johnny, Bloody Popcorn
