Episodes

It's Christmas once more at Stay Scary and we're making the best of it, with our five-time returning Champion Guest Jonathan Woodard.  We of course revisit "Black Christmas," but also get into a little "Christmas Evil," "A Christmas Horror Story," and "Rare Exports."  Also: the genuine horrors of TikTok (but only if you're a Queen Above 18), unsolicited dick pics, and terrible jokes about eggnog.

This episode, we delve into Jewish Horror.  There is, in fact, a slasher movie about Hanukkah.  Joining us is Alex Rich-Shea, a/k/a "The Gay Rabbi."  A...spirited...discussion about serial killer rabbis, murderous bears of the Torah, gay acceptance in the Orthodox world, and unsolicited poems about buttholes. Quite possibly the filthiest-yet-most-informative episode we've done yet!

Turkey days are here again, and we get into a fresh round of Thanksgiving-themed horror movies with returning guest Soren Campbell.  We talk "Thankskilling 3," "Pilgrim," and "Flesh and Blood."  Also: garbage comfort food, getting blocked by Scott Baio, and drinking at bad chain restaurants the night before Thanksgiving.  Save room for PIE!

It's time to talk about BUGS.  Returning guest Nick Zaino joins Lisa and Yinh to discuss all things creepy-crawly: giant self-aware cockroaches, radioactive ants, billions of worms imported from Maine...and along the way we discuss real-life gross outs, play "Which Was The Better IT Spider?" before devolving into terrible jokes about maggot babies.  You'll want a six-pack of RAID for this one.

We took a little break, but we are back with Season 2! We're talking teen witches - what's great, what's super problematic, and what it means to find self-empowerment in the midst of global crisis.  Superstar Returning Guest Melissa Van Hamme joins us as we whip up a cauldron full of bad wigs, the Rule of Three, mermaid vaginas, and the usual highly questionable content.  Jump on in!

Lisa and Yinh talk to author Matthew Brockmeyer (Kind Nepenthe, Under Rotting Sky) about his upcoming collection of transgressive short stories, Nest Of Salt, as well as rural horror, backwoods witchcraft, living on a pot farm, and why Flannery O'Connor should be required reading, as early as possible.

Although it'll be a good long time before most of us set foot in one, we're talking HOTELS.  From The Overlook to The Bates to the real-life horror stories at The Cecil, you're gonna want to keep your door locked and make no unnecessary jaunts down the hall to the ice machine.  Lisa and Yinh are joined once again by Jonathan Woodard (The Wrong Chaneys) for a wholesome chat about psychic imprints, voyeuristic motel owners, and Best Places To Stay If You're A Serial Killer.

We are back with a FULL episode! And we are finally tackling the subject that a lot of people would rather we didn't: CLOWNS.  Joining us is our Very Special Guest - David Howard Thornton ("Art the Clown" in the fantastic "Terrifier" series). We grill David about the much-anticipated sequel, while also talking Pennywise, John Wayne Gacy, tulpas, court jesters, and why horror actors almost always are the exception to the rule "Never meet your idols."

Will the COVID madness ever come to an end? Will Lisa buy a plague doctor mask? Will Yinh have to yank the wax off her own armpits?  In this delightful minisode, we talk botched Tudor executions, where to find toilet paper, "Killer Sofa," and the perils of self-grooming.
