UNH 69: A Christmas Horror Story

 

 

As Christmas joy and laughter fades, let UNH help keep the Christmas spirit alive a little longer as Mark and Lucard talk about A Christmas Horror Story (2015). Ever wanted to see William Shatner slowly getting merrier and merrier? Spooky nuns up to no good (there is no such thing as a bad movie with nuns, after all…)? Watch Santa take on a horde of zombie elves, and Krampus himself? See a terrible, dysfunctional family unveil the true horror of Christmas? Then this might just be the movie (currently on Netflix) for you. Merry Christmas, ya filthy animals.

Action Zone vol. 7: The Long Kiss Goodnight

We wish you the Happiest of Holidays, the Merriest of Christmas and a Happy New Year! Our gift to you comes in the form of a holiday action movie starring Geena Davis and Samuel L. Jackson from 1996. Snow will fall, bullets will fly and knives will get thrown (because Chefs do that, right?).

UNH 67: List-O-Mania: Satan Onscreen

 

This week on UNH, Mark and Becky go up against the Devil in a LIST-O-MANIA episode covering their top five, and worst three, depictions of Satan onscreen. We have plenty of feedback from the fine folks in the Facebook group, as well as an audio segment from Herman Louw, host of the Longbox of Darkness, a podcast dedicated to horror comics and their filmic adaptations, in which he talks about the comic anthology Devil Tales. You can check out Longbox of Darkness here: https://itunes.apple.com/tw/podcast/the-longbox-of-darkness/id1261931218?mt=2.

Thanks to everyone who suggested this episode and contributed, and just to quickly add that these are just our favourites – we will definitely be returning to the topic in more detail in due course!

Until then, we have one question: have you ever danced with the Devil in the pale moonlight?

UNH 66: Videodrome

 

Becky and Mark took a turn in the VIDEODROME this week, where they discussed recent watches. These included: questioning the mythology of the series, but still declaring endless love for HIGHLANDER III: THE MAGICIAN; rating the docudrama miniseries LORE, based on the popular folklore podcast by Aaron Mehnke; commenting on the rules and regulations of SCREAM 1, 2, and 3; situating THE DUNWICH HORROR between classic and modern examples of the genre; talking briefly about MINDHUNTER, the behavioural science television show based on the book by John Douglas; musings that the pre-code ISLAND OF LOST SOULS would make an excellent double feature with THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME; discussing the 60s television series AQUARIUS, which weaves a fictional story around historical events and characters, including Charles Manson and his ‘family’; thoughts on the first half of the STAR TREK: DISCOVERY television series; and Mark rounding things off with TMI about problematic patriarchy in DIRTY WEEKEND.
