The Horror Junkies are back in the studio this week with their good friend Jorge. The Florida sky is turning black and the winds begin to pick up, which means that the conditions for recording our episode are perfect. On this week’s episode we discuss Infection movies and finally tackle the underrated hit It Comes At Night by Trey Edward Shults.
In the first half of the show, Patrick drags us through what felt like an eternity of Horror News. Bringing up some really anticipated Horror themed games from the E3 conference that was this past week. Such titles include: The Last of Us part 2, The Evil Within 2, Wolfenstein II, and Days Gone, which feels like it was influenced by World War Z. Be sure to check out those games if your into survival games or if you just want to cry with the lights off.
We also had a pretty intense Horror History segment with Mike. Before digging into his topic, Mike brought up a painting from It Comes At Night. This particular painting is titled The Triumph of Death and was painted by Pieter Bruegel the Elder in 1562. Depicting mass death, walking skeletons, and destruction. The topic of Horror History today was the Bubonic Plague that decimated Europe in the 14th century, wiping out one-third of its population.
The second half of the show is our short Spoiler Free conversation about It Comes At Night, followed by a longer spoiler filled conversation about what our thoughts are and the questions we have after watching the movie. This movie got a really solid rating from the Horror Junkies, and it really makes the viewer think and pay attention. But don’t take our word for it, go see It Comes At Night and tell us what you think.
As always…. Stay Weird!
