His House

This podcast contains spoilers! And this is a 2020 film so consider your self warned.

Don’t worry. Nothing was stolen from an Apeth in order to record this episode. So we’re all good on that front. This is an interesting one for us here at NtF. Billed as a horror movie, we ask and try to answer the question, “Did this story NEED to be a horror movie?” You’ll have to listen to find out. This movie deals with a lot of heavy topics around immigration, refugees, loss and PTSD so it may be on the heavier side, content wise. It’s a clever take on a horror movie to mix it in with the trauma of fleeing war torn regions of the world and settling in a land that seems hostile and confusing in different and unexpected ways. We hope that you enjoy!

Host

This episode contains spoilers. SERIOUSLY. This movie came out in 2020 and we spoil a lot of it so make sure you watch this movie before you listen if you don’t want to have the plot spoiled. 

As if the Pandemic wasn’t tough enough, what happens if a bunch of your friends do a Zoom seance and then summon a demon? Sounds like a bit more risky than that lawyer who got the cat filter stuck on his screen, eh?

Get comfy, make sure your microphone is turned on and you’ve arranged your bookshelves for maximum Zoom cred.

If you like the show please let us know! You can get in contact with us in many ways which I will list below but the easiest way to let us know you love the show is by leaving us a rating and review on whatever podcast app you subscribe to. Every little rating helps us out.

The Conjuring

This Podcast Contains Spoilers for the movie we are discussing.

The NtF crew is diving back into the spooky scary haunted realms this week as we discuss 2013’s The Conjuring. Patrick Wilson returns as a guy who’s name Billie can’t remember and we must have completed some sort of ritual because Luke’s landlord was conjured during the recording leaving Alex and Billie to their own devices. 

Listen to the show now either by winding up a dusty music box you found in the secret room in your house or by downloading it from whichever podcasting app you prefer. Time Codes and trigger warnings are below

TW: Brief mentions of suicide, infanticide and bodily harm in addition to the regular scares of ghosts and supernatural beasties in any good horror.

The Strangers

This episode contains spoilers for the movie we are about to discuss.

It may strike you as odd but if someone knocks on your door at four in the morning asking for someone who doesn’t live there, I think it would be just fine to pretend you weren’t home. And maybe call someone at that point.

But then we wouldn’t have 2008’s The Strangers. Billie and the Boys discuss this movie, talk about the unexplainable nature of a truly random act of violence and investigate our own biases.

THIS ONE’S GOT IT ALL, FOLKS.

Next week we’re gonna go back into the spooky spooky haunted house genre with The Conjuring.

Pyewacket

This Episode Contains Spoilers!

It’s our 40th episode! We’re so excited to get into the movie. We’re talking about 2017s Pyewacket today. This Canadian horror entry brings the demonic spooks in spades. Billie and the boys chat about the cons and the other cons of summoning a spirit to kill your parent, mull over the ideas of how reality can be perceived and make enough Star Wars references to annoy just about everyone. Content Warning: The summoning ritual in this ritual depicts some self-harm in the form of cutting across a wrist. Please take care when watching this one, folks.
