Today is the Blu-Ray/DVD release date for the terrifying surprise hit The Autopsy of Jane Doe–if you saw this on VOD and loved it as much as I did, now’s the time to add it to your collection! Dark Discussions looks at symbols and more in the film on Episode 268, which you can listen to here: http://www.darkdiscussions.com/Pages/podcast_268.html
On Shadow Nation (formerly The Ghostman & Demon Hunter Show), Shaun and Nathan kept a stiff upper lip as they interviewed the film’s corpse, played by Olwen Catherine Kelly. You can give that a listen here: http://shadownation.com/autopsy-jane-doe-olwen-catherine-kelly/
A little ways back, Dark Discussions ran a contest in its Facebook group — what movies from the past would listeners like to hear us cover? One of the winners (it was a tie) was 1963’s Jason and the Argonauts.
Since it seems like Hollywood has figured out (finally, and we’re not complaining!) that horror films do well in the winter months, we’ve had so many new releases to cover we haven’t had time to get to either of our winners. We got lucky when logistics hung us up for a week, so we decided a trip down memory lane (and into the dusty annals of our brains to see what we remember about the myths we read in high school) would be the perfect fill-in.

The Leonardo DiCaprio vehicle The Revenant has gotten a lot of buzz—but is it actually any good?
There were a lot of varying opinions regarding this on the most recent episode of Dark Discussions, which is up now: http://www.darkdiscussions.com/Pages/podcast_216.html.
My late father was extremely interested in the Mountain Men and this period in American History spawned by the explorations of Lewis and Clark, so I went into this film with a little bit of knowledge – mostly, though, about keelboats and beaver conservation, to be honest. I’ve chosen what I’d consider reputable resources in case you’d like to know Read the rest of this entry
Exists, the new Eduardo Sanchez (The Blair Witch Project) found footage piece about Bigfoot that’s one hell of an edge-of-your-seat ride, is available today on DVD. I don’t know if it has any special features — and that’s usually how I judge whether or not I’m going to own the disc — but this movie is so good I’m getting it regardless.

Need a fix? In the meantime, check out Dark Discussions Episode 162 by clicking here…I was lucky enough to get to guest to discuss this movie that’s so wonderfully reminiscent of The Legend of Boggy Creek. In case you’re wondering whether or not this thing is terrifying? It’s made several 2014 Top Ten Horror Movie Lists:
Whether or not you thought Annabelle was crystal or crap (or you’re on the fence about going to see it), this prequel to The Conjuring has been much anticipated and much talked about. But just like anything, there’s more to the story.
Nathan (occult specialist and also my husband) and I join Philip, Eric, Mike, and Abe on Dark Discussions to explore the truth behind the real case and the film’s dogma–and share a few spooky tales of our own (two words: chicken feet!). You can listen on ITunes and Stitcher, or here at the Dark Discussions website, or click here to play it directly:
When Escape from Tomorrow—the surreal film Randy Moore guerilla-style in the Disney Parks—was released last year, everyone wanted to know what I thought (I wrote Skeletons in the Swimmin’ Hole: Tales from Haunted Disney World, a collection of ghost stories set in Disney Parks). Now you can find out Read the rest of this entry
I got the chance to discuss one of everybody’s favorite movies—1984’s Gremlins—on Episode 120 of Dark Discussions! Foreign cars, puppetry vs. CGI, maxi-cassettes and more…if you were a child of the 80s (and even if you weren’t and are curious), you can take a trip down memory lane Read the rest of this entry
