Episode 59: Ryan & Megan Nicholson

For episode 59 of GBW we invite two special guests to the show: Ryan and Megan Nicholson.

Ryan’s been in the special effects game since way back in the 1990’s and has worked on such films as Final Destination, The Pledge, and many more. He also has been directing, under the Plotdigger Films banner, a bunch of memorable extreme horror flicks like Live Feed, Gutterballs, and Hanger.

His wife, Megan, is also an effects artist with varied horror and television credits and along with Ryan works on all sorts of genre endeavours.

We sat down with them both to learn about how they got into horror, became interested in make-up effects, and what the future holds for them both. There’s also a lot of laughs along the way and many memorable stories about such people as Jon Voight and Morgan Freeman.

Episode 58: Home Wreckers

Obsession meets psychosis for the latest episode of GBW where we dive into one of our favourite sub-genres: Home wrecking crazy girls. We’re talking girls who worm their way into the families of their crushes and proceed to destroy them. Teenagers who try to seduce older men. And a little bit of bunny boiling on the side.

First up, we talk about what we’ve been watching including The Autopsy of Jane Doe, another journey on the Train to Busan, some really poor kickboxing adventures, and more of Josh’s descent into his over-stuffed VHS collection. Plus more!

Episode 57: 2016 Recap

It’s the beginning of a new year and time for our annual recap of the movies of the past year.

We pick our top five favourite films of the year (and argue a bit about it), have some honourable mentions, and list the movies we’re anticipating for 2017 – including a few blockbusters, a lot of indie fare, and even a couple of cannibal flicks!

As always we start off talking about what we’ve watching including Josh’s attempts to watch more 2016 movies, Chris realizing that at one time Steven Seagal was actually pretty bad-ass, a couple of titles from the fine folks at Arrow Video, and the continuing VHS adventures of Josh. Plus more!
