This week for Thanksgiving, the gang pays a visit to cinema's favorite culinary villain in RED DRAGON, the third film in the Hannibal Lecter series. We'll discuss the film's efficacy as a procedural thriller, the 90s/2000s wave of forensic investigation dramas, and how this movie relates to The Silence of the Lambs. We'll also touch on the myriad other interpretations of the sordid tale of Francis Dolarhyde: the man who turned a cleft lip and an abusive grandmother into a successful career of home-invading, film-developing, wheelchair-burning, and painting-eating.

This week the gang gets into the Halloween spirit with Adam Sandler and all of his famous friends: it's time for HUBIE HALLOWEEN, the Netflix-original holiday comedy that has taken the world by storm. Join us as we sit back, try to relax, laugh twice, and contemplate the Sandman's career, Patrick's childhood, the charm of Salem, Massachusetts, and the mysterious identity of the Hubie Halloween maniac.
Happy Halloween! We did it: we watched all nine Nightmare on Elm Street movies and in this special holiday episode we review each and every one of them with the help of our friend Rowan from It Slays Podcast. Don't fall asleep!

This week the gang heads to Peru to find an ancestral Ouija board, a kooky set of overly friendly neighbors, and a son that won't speak. It's SINISTER CIRCLE, a Spanish-language spookshow set against the backdrop of previous movie that none of us had seen. What happened to grandma? Who's hiding under the bed? And is investigative journalism still alive? Join us to find out.
In memory of EHMON’s beloved feline familiar, we discuss the classic POLTERGEIST, directed by Tobe Hooper – or was it?? — the notorious controversy over the film’s authorship, its kickass practical effects, Craig T. Nelson getting high, Reaganism, and other fun stuff. Push your head through whatever screen you’re using and join us!
This week, Patrick and Steven sit down one-on-one, man-to-man, to discuss the Netflix original DEATH NOTE, based on the manga series that Patrick is currently reading, and try to make sense of its many twists, turns, and intentions. We also briefly chat about THE INVISIBLE MAN, US (again), REPO! THE GENETIC OPERA, LOVECRAFT COUNTRY, and we mourn the loss of a feline friend of the show.

Why watch a horror movie when you can watch a courtroom drama, erotic thriller, domestic drama, legal thriller, and a horror movie all at the same damn time? That's what we did this week when we watched THE DEVIL'S ADVOCATE, in which Keanu Reeves gets a great new job at a law firm owned by Al Pacino in one of his most intense roles. Join us!

This week, the gang gets its hands dirty with the 2018 Israeli film THE GOLEM, imagining what it would be like to live in the distant time of 1673, when a plague was devastating the world. Would we dare to break the mores of our community, learn the 72 secret names of God, and make a golem? And speaking of unfettered ambition, we'll also review the SyFy original documentary, TODD MCFARLANE: LIKE HELL I WON'T.
This week, the EHMON gang is joined by a real-life scientist to discuss the science-fiction horror/drama SPLICE, in which two (fictional) scientists violate ethics and laboratory best practices to create a horrifying but also adorable baby-animal-creature-monster-thing.

This week, the gang takes a trip back in time to 2008, 1920, and 1857 all at once. It's 1920, the predecessor to a very important film in the EHMON journey, 1920 LONDON: FEAR STRIKES AGAIN. Star-crossed lovers move into a haunted house to do a job after the first two guys to do the job were mysteriously and brutally killed by ghosts! What could go wrong? We'll find out. Plus: we talk about friend-of-the-show Mike Flanagan's DOCTOR SLEEP, the true crime TV we've been watching, the not-true crime TV we've been watching, and the horror-adjacent stuff we've been reading.
