This week, we discuss one of the most hyped and anticipated horror movies of the year, Scott Derrickson's The Black Phone. 10 years ago, Derrickson and frequent collaborator C. Robert Cargill terrorized us with snuff films and Bughuul in Sinister, a film that science has deemed "the scariest movie ever." Now, their new film, The Black Phone, aims to recapture that magic with Ethan Hawke once again. Does it succeed? Tune in and find out!
Trevor is joined by actress Brianne Tju – known for I Know What You Did Last Summer and Unhuman – and the two talk about how underrated the campy horror genre is, with a couple looks behind the scenes, as well as the creepy pickup lines guys use online, and how you have to work hard when you find your passion in life.

This week is for all the voyeurs out there, as we discuss two eerie films that involve being watched (among other things). “Watcher” gave us the heebie-jeebies as it slowly weaved its way through each dark and chilling scene. And then there's “Dashcam” — a chaotic journey that creeped us out… but for very different reasons.
This week Joe is in the Bahamas, but we welcome James Oster as a permanent member of the show...AND we dive into the Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV show! But first we talk about recent viewings such as The Black Phone, Offseason, and Mad God. This is definitely an episode to wake the kids and phone the neighbors!
When writers S.S. Wilson and Brent Maddock were working as editors for the United States Navy while helping to produce educational videos, they had a thought while standing on top of a boulder in the middle of the desert — what if there was something underground that prevented them from actually getting off this rock? That spawned an idea for a monster movie about creatures that swim around under the dirt. The original working title was “Land Sharks” but that had to change thanks to a “Saturday Night Live” skit of the same name. They eventually teamed up with director Ron Underwood, who had previously worked with National Geographic and he had a better understanding about the kinds of creatures that could potentially haunt this movie script. After the writing duo received rave reviews for their film “Short Circuit,” they immediately began shopping around a new idea about some gigantic, underground worms that attack a small town called Perfection in the middle of nowhere Nevada.In the latest episode of Rewind of the Living Dead, we're going to take photos with the Graboids and pole vault across some boulders as we look back at the 1990 cult classic “Tremors”…
When John Carpenter was first contacted about potentially directing a remake of the 1951 classic “The Thing from Another World,” he was reluctant to sign onto the project. The studio had already hired and fired “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” director Tobe Hooper and Carpenter didn't really see a path to a creative remake from a film he admired so much. But it was his first chance to move from independent cinema to do a studio film so Carpenter eventually decided to take on the project while putting his own original spin on the concept where he wouldn't try to hide the creature but rather explore the various incarnations of an alien who could assume the identity of any host it invaded. Rob Bottin was brought on board to handle the practical effects for the film, which ended up eating a huge part of the budget but it also helped create many of the most iconic moments in the movie. Set in a remote science station in Antarctica, a group of American scientists soon discover that they are not alone after an alien presence that can duplicate any one of them begins to systematically dismantle them one by one while proving that man really is the warmest place to hide…To celebrate the 40th anniversary of one of the most iconic horror films in history, Rewind of the Living Dead will grab the flamethrowers and get ready to do a blood test as we look back on John Carpenter's “The Thing”…

Two foreign horror flicks, one valuable lesson — children ruin everything. JK! The telepathic & telekinetic kids in the Norwegian thriller, “The Innocents,” are anything BUT innocent as they f*ck with cats, break legs, and engage in a moral battle. And “Hatching,” a Finnish film, is all about keeping up appearances… and a humongous bird that morphs into a human.
Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean something isn't really happening. That's the premise behind the new film “Watcher,” which just opened in theaters as director Chloe Okuno teams up with “It Follows” star Maika Monroe for a thriller that feels like something that should have Alfred Hitchcock's name attached to it. In addition to “Watcher” opening in theaters, David Cronenberg's latest film called “Crimes of the Future” is also being released with the reception to this latest movie mixed somewhere between a masterpiece and an all-out gore fest that had some viewers leaving the theater in disgust. Plus we discuss what happens with "Scream 6" without Neve Campbell. On the latest episode of Rewind of the Living Dead, we review the new film 'Watcher,' 'Scream 6' moving on without Neve Campbell and David Cronenberg's latest film and legacy...

Horror has always found a home on television but it's hard to imagine anything capturing the attention of the pop culture zeitgeist like “Stranger Things” has done over the past few years. Developed by the Duffer brothers, the series based in the 1980's was equal parts nostalgia and great storytelling while making titles like Eleven and the Demogorgon household names across the globe. When “Stranger Things” season 3 ended, the evil Mindflayer had been stopped but Eleven lost her powers and the gateway to the Upside Down has seemingly ended Chief Jim Hopper's life. Season 4 picks up with Eleven and the Byers' family living in California, Mike and Dustin teaming up with a new friend named Eddie and a nightmarish presence suddenly lurking in Hawkins that is far scarier than any big bad before it.For the first time on Rewind of the Living Dead, we review a TV series as we crank up the Kate Bush and remember friends don't lie as we review “Stranger Things” Season 4, Volume 1…

It was 15 years ago when writer and director Alex Garland first got an idea for a new script that he wanted to develop. At the time, Garland was only a screenwriter because his directorial debut didn't come until 2014 with his film “Ex-Machina.” The original idea that haunted Garland was a straight forward horror film centered around The Green Man — a creature of folklore that often appears in architecture around the world yet the meaning behind the symbols are often left up to interpretation. Eventually, Garland moved away from The Green Man and instead became focused on the idea of one actor playing all of the male roles in the movie, which would then become the central plot point and mystery surrounding his ever evolving story. The film finally settled on a grieving woman who escapes to the English countryside to get her mind off the tragic death of her husband but she soon realizes that not only is she not alone but the men in this quaint little village are all very much the same…In the latest episode of Rewind of the Living Dead, we're going to shout to hear an echo down a tunnel and keep the mail slot closed as we review the 2022 horror film “Men”….Don't forget to subscribe!

When I was 7 years old, my cousins thought it would be funny to show me Nightmare on Elm Street, the horror film with Freddy Kreuger. I was afraid of the dark and being alone for many years after, with constant nightmare of someone coming to get me. To be honest, these types of fears haunted me for years and were perpetuated by other scary movies I felt pressured to watch in the media. In this episode, I discuss why I don't watch scary, horror or psychologically disturbing films. I discuss how our minds don't know the difference between what we are watching vs what we are in (hence why the porn industry is so big), how our thoughts become our beliefs which become our actions which become our realities and why the scenes from these movies/ shows will last in your subconscious for a lifetime. If you've been realizing that you just feel off after watching these movies/ shows and you haven't been able to quite put it into words, this episode is for you. Share with anyone else who may benefit from ending the addiction to disturbing movies/ shows.

Around the world, the box office charts are being dominated by Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the latest example of Marvel Studios' habit of attempting to shake some of the dust off the formula of formulaic comic book superhero action movies by flavoring them with a little bit of genre. In this case, for the first time in Marvel's history, that genre flavoring is horror, and that's gotten us to thinking about all the other times a not-actually-horror movie got to play around in horror's sandbox. And that's gotten us to our next episode topic: the Top 5 Scary Movies That Aren't Horror. From childhood trauma where it frankly makes no sense to find it, up to movies that disquieted us powerfully as adults without it necessarily being clear why, we're looking for scares where you least expect it.

The wild success of the first Friday the 13th movie had Paramount Pictures frothing at the mouth for a sequel but the initial idea was to essentially treat the franchise as an anthology where each movie would involve an entirely new scary story. Some of the producers on the original film had a much different idea that the sequel should involve Jason Voorhees even though his appearance in the original film was essentially done in a nightmare sequence that was never expected to go any further than that movie. Steve Miner, who was an associate producer on the original film ran with that idea and he signed onto direct the next movie after Sean Cunningham opted not to return to the franchise he helped start. Miner came up with an idea that would carry the story five years into the future after the events in the original film as a new group of camp counselors are arriving to train for the summer ahead but they are completely unaware of the danger lurking in the woods….In the latest episode of Rewind of the Living Dead, we're going to put on mother's sweater and sharpen the pitchfork as we review the 1981 sequel “Friday the 13th Part 2”….

Writing partners Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowski had already managed to get several scripts made into films but there was plenty more left on the cutting room floor from projects that never got picked up or pieces of stories that were deemed too ambitious that the pair called their “murdered darlings.” Armed with those ideas along with an intense desire to write something that would scare each other, Collins and Piotrowski started to develop an idea for a new script that would deal with a subject that was truly terrifying — the intense reality of mortality. Despite never having suffered through any intense grief in their own lives yet knowing that death is looming around the corner for all of us and the ones we love, they decided to explore that as a setting for a film. The final story centered around a woman named Beth who is trying to make sense of her husband's shocking suicide and the trove of secrets he was keeping from her that she begins to uncover in the wake of his death. In the latest episode of Rewind of the Living Dead, we're going to crank up the stereo to listen to ‘The Calvary Cross' and make sure the boat is tied to the dock as we review the 2021 thriller ‘The Night House'…
