Keep Screaming

A horror podcast by two best friends, dissecting slasher movies... one by one.

Valentine (2001)

Ryan Larson
Valentine-Cherub

In the spirit of Valentine's Day, we dissect one of the most divisive but we dare say underrated, holiday slashers, Valentine!

In our Pop Culture Check-In, Bee keys us into her thoughts on the Predator series and Ryan has finally seen Reservoir Dogs.

This 2001 Jamie Blanks (Urban Legend) slasher stars David Boreanaz (Angel, Bones), Denise Richards (Wild Things, Starship Troopers) & Marley Shelton (Death Proof, Never Been Kissed, Scream 4).

We find a lot to love about this 80's inspired slasher and go over all the gory details in the new episode.

Happy Birthday To Me (1981)

Ryan Larson

It's Bee's birthday month and we are celebrating with a brand new episode! In honor of the birthday girl, we check in with Canada and their 1981 slasher Happy Birthday To Me!

In our Pop Culture check-in Ryan and Bee gush over a teen drama...or two or three. What's new? We also touch base with our journey back through Harry Potter and our New Year's resolutions.

New Year's Evil (1980)

Ryan Larson

Happy 2019! This is a big year for us, as we spent all of 2018 releasing new episodes! We can’t wait to head into the new year with more great slasher movies to dissect.

Our first film of the new year is 1980’s New Year’s Evil directed by Emmett Alston and starring Roz Kelly & Kip Niven. One of the first films to come out in the post-Halloween holiday themed slashers craze. This film follows an LA Disc Jockey on New Year Eve, as she receives ominous phone calls from a man named EVIL who promises to murder at midnight in every time zone.

This crazy and campy 80s fare is a great film to add to your yearly holiday tradition. With a punk bank named Shadow and a slasher icon who changes outfits each kill, you’re guaranteed to have fun.

Black Christmas (1974)

Ryan Larson
Black Christmas


It’s a very merry black Christmas! All month long we are celebrating the holiday season with Black Christmas! Starting off with 1974’s iconic Black Christmas directed by none other than Bob Clark (yes, the same director as A Christmas Story!). This 70’s slasher is a must see and our episode premieres December 10th.

For our pop culture check in Bee divulges that she is in a movie slump, but somehow still watches one million things. In a more negative light, she discusses her disappointment in Pitch Perfect 3 and the negative outlook on love in Table 19 (2017). Ryan and her both praise Love, Simon(2018) and Murder on the Orient Express(2018) and dive into Blumhouse’s collaboration with Hulu in their Into the Dark series. Bee finally watched A Quiet Place (2018) and predicts it making her top list for horror this year.

Ryan chimes in on the odd & very 90’s feeling of Venom, as well as the Sicario sequel, Eli Roth’s The House With a Clock In Its Walls and how he believe Mission Impossible has beat out Fast & the Furious for best action franchise.

Then we dive into the influential and ever important proto-slaser Black Christmas.

Stay tuned for December 24th when we follow that up with 2006’s Black Xmas directed by Glen Morgan. A mean spirited millennium remake that takes it’s creative liberties with the story as opposed to a shot for shot remake. At the end of this episode, we will compare the two films!


Halloween (2018)

Ryan Larson
SafeVelvetyHoopoe-max-1mb.gif

Our first episode of our second year! Does this mean we have been renewed? ARE WE ON SEASON 2?

Anyways, what better way to kick off our new year with a brand new horror film from one of the largest slasher franchises ever, Halloween 2018!

Before kicking full tilt into the winter (feeling) season, Bee and Ryan are here with the one of the freshest slashers around, 2018's Halloween. Also, Ryan tries to suppress an annoying cough, Bee dives into the MCU, and they both have a Christmas movie they've already indulged in.

This week, Ryan and Bee discuss some shows and movies that have that distinct Halloween feel, praise Ryan Murphy, and talk a little about turning 30. (Ryan, not Bee.) Then they dive into Cry_wolf, the mid-aughts slasher starring Bon Jovi! Okay, that's not the biggest draw. But, it's great.
