Stop today some of the horror movies covered in this episode:

This dark comedy takes characters and storylines that have become common clichés and tropes in horror movies (a group of vacationing college students meet a pair of creepy old men in a cabin in the woods) and knocks them down. The result is a clever prank with equal parts of free gore and unexpected sweetness. (Also available for free streaming from Kanopy and Hoopla.)

Environment

A folk horror film from the movie studio A24 following a group traveling to Sweden for a summer solstice celebration. In no time, they are grappling with an old town with troubling traditions. (Also available for free streaming from Kanopy.)

Young Frankenstein

Young Frankenstein

The classic horror movie parody of Mel Brooks’ Universal follows Dr. Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced FRONK-en-STEEN, thank you) as he continues the experiments of his mad scholar ancestors: resuscitating human life. A rare comedy that remains funny (and very quotable) no matter how often you watch it.

The Blair Witch Project

The Blair Witch Project

The framing device for this film (that it consists entirely of found footage shot by three missing young filmmakers) sparked some controversy when the film was released, as it was marketed as being based on a true story. But the pocket-size cinematography and the improvised character of the film give it a realism that is as effective as ever.
