Popcorn Pulse 185: Strange Man

It’s still season of the spookiness when we recorded, on Halloween no less. The spirit of Tim Burton’s Hot Topic merchandise was strong with us. Which compelled us to do one last joint watch of a horror movie. This one from a couple of years ago about a supernatural house where a child ends up possessed. That doesn’t really narrow it down to anything though. We did Winchester[2018].

Popcorn Pulse 182: Purple Hook

If you’ve had a subscription streaming service you’ve probably been advertised an original movie or two. And if you’ve been remotely curious, or drunk enough, you’ve tried watching one of these. Especially if the social media hype has gotten to you. Then you watched it and promptly forgot about it.

You better have you bats secured. Your capes fully latched. Blood bags filled and kept in the fridge. Because it’s Morbin’ Time! That’s right, the most popular movie ever made to bear the Marvel seal has finally battered down our defenses. After an earth shattering initial release which necessitated a second run in theaters we knew we had to hop onto this bandwagon. So we’ve caved and done Morbius[2022].
