In 2012 coming off the critical success of Coraline, Laika Studios released their follow-up feature about a young boy who communicates with the dead tasked with dealing with an angry spirit and the horde of zombies at its call. ParaNorman once again captured the hearts of critics but could at best create a cult following. But does the film deserve better or should it be put back to rest for an eternal slumber? MovieDude Eric, Kent & Lobster investigate.

After the massive success of Star Wars, science fiction became the go-to genre in Hollywood. But while other filmmakers were trying to make grand space epics, director Phillip Kaufman opted to adapt a seminal 1950s classic horror film Invasion of the Body Snatchers to modern times. The result was a remake that would arguably be considered better than the original. But does it stand the test of time with MovieDude Eric, Kent, Lobster and special guest Anthony Bachman of All Things Good and Nerdy Podcast, or does it put them to sleep and turn them into veggiepods?

In 1931, Universal Studios released two horror films that would become immediate box office smashes and would start the first cinematic universe and a whole new genre of horror. One of those films was James Whale's Frankenstein. With such success, Universal ordered a sequel to be made (a very rare thing at the time), bringing back the director along with actors Colin Clive and the breakout star of the original film, Boris Karloff. While the sequel is considered the more iconic of the two films, based off one of literature's first gothic horror novels, do these films hold up as worthy of their iconic status or should the torches and pitchforks be at the ready? MovieDude Eric, Kent & Lobster weather the lightning storm to find out.

In 2014, New Zealand comedians Taika Watiti and Jermaine Clement, after achieving success internationally through television and film, retunred to a short they made nearly a decade before and turned into a feature-length mockumentary about a group of vampire flatmates who are trying to survive in the modern age in Wellington. The result is a wildly beloved cult film called What We Do In The Shadows. But is the film hypnotic or does it just... well... suck? MovieDude Eric, Kent, Lobster and special guest Lauren from Legends of SHIELD Podcast find out.

In 1983 cult director David Cronenberg, fresh off the success of Scanners, created his most ambitious horror film of his career, following a sleezy television executive who after pickup a rogue transmission starts down rabbit hole of sex, violence, paranoia and the grotesque. Starring James Woods and Debbie Harry, Videodrome has maintained a cult status through the years but has been considered to the critics as a cornerstone of Cronenberg's mastery of cinema. But does it deserve the acclaim or should it be Death to Videodrome and long live the new flesh? MovieDude Eric, Kent & Lobster return to Arthouse of Horror to find out.
