Episodes

Halloween is days away, and we decide to go classic.  Along with Superstar Returning Guest Jonathan Woodard, we discuss the Universal, um, universe, but bop into other decades as the mood takes us. Also - stupid tattoos, Gary Oldman's tortured take on Dracula, and Elsa Lanchester's side hustle singing dirty ditties.

Well, by gum - it's been a DOG'S AGE. How've you been? We've been.....distracted. Personal and professional stuff kept us away from you all, but we're back, and in a STUDIO again, no less.

Joining us is return guest Matt Ferrara, as we talk about BIRTH IN HORROR. Rosemary's Baby, It's Alive, Prevenge...we discover that there are enough pregnancy/birth horror movies for an entire series, but we'll spare you.  Meanwhile, we get typically sidetracked as only we know how. Hope y'all like placenta jokes!

On this episode, we get deep into cults in horror.  Not cult horror.  Cults IN horror.  Movies inspired by the likes of Charlie Manson, Jim Jones, the Westboro Baptist Church and Heaven's Gate.  Joining Lisa and Yinh is not-at-all-a-cult-leader Jonathan Woodard.  We talk cannibalism, blowjobs for enlightenment, multi-level marketing, and how to ace your Scientology "personality test."  And we won't even make you change your name!

"Fashion" isn't usually the first word that comes to mind when we think about horror, but horror is, in fact, DREADFULLY STYLISH, darlings.  Joining Lisa and Yinh is designer (and "Internet personality" Dan Pecci (danpecci.com) to talk foppish dandy vampires, nice girl sweaters, pretty dresses, and all the things we probably overlook as we're screaming.  Also: why "Showgirls" is probably actually a horror movie, how to hold a cigarette when your life is falling apart, and Jamie Lee Curtis's colon.  Dress to impress!

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.

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.
