A Cure for Wellness (SSS 27)

Strong acting.  Visually arresting cinematography.  A horror movie concerned with developing characters over the course of the narrative.

These are all good things, right?

So why are the guys from SSS (via one of the guys from SSS) saying this is a movie you should take a pass on?

Plan 9 from Outer Space (SSS 26)

The Worst Movie Ever Made.  What a title to bear.  And yet, somehow, Ed Wood's Plan 9 from Outer Space manages to live up to the billing.

Since Harry and Michael Medved declared this film the worst ever in their 1980 book The Golden Turkey Awards both Ed Wood and the creation he was most proud of have enjoyed a surprising rise in attention.

A simple Google search will return more than a few pieces arguing that Medved and the other critics of Plan 9 were too harsh in their judgment.  So what's the truth - so-bad-its-good, underappreciated, or plain ol' bad?  Let the guys from Saw Something Scary be your guide in answering the question.

This week's episode also features an introduction to Plan 9's creator Ed Wood by Dr. Udru  (thanks Dr. Udru!) - you can find more of the good doctor's videos examining the horror genre on YouTube (and you really should check them out).

Time to press download, adjust the volume, and find out if the viewers of Plan 9 from Outer Space Saw Something Scary!

Day of the Dead [1985] (SSS 25)

Follow Saw Something Scary on Twitter and leave a review on iTunes or your favorite podcast platform!

Derik and Jeff lived through the Day of the Dead but somehow failed to get the t-shirt.

Originally conceived by George Romero as Gone with the Wind plus zombies, Day of the Dead, ends up in a hole in the ground with some thoroughly unlikable characters plus one indelible zombie who keeps showing up in pop culture.

If you're in to Romero... or zombie films... or film history this episode has something for you.  So lets head down to the bunker and see what Dr. Logan has been getting in to with the guys from the Triple S Podcast!

Event Horizon (SSS 24)

It took 24 episodes but finally the Triple S Pod has come around to Paul W.S. Anderson's 1997 cult classic Event Horizon.

Cult classic, that is, if you are Jeff.  Derik wishes - strongly - to differ.

Before they hash out their differences over Dr. Weir's favorite floating haunted house the guys check out some trailers and go through Dreadit's list of the greatest horror television series.

Time to hit download and join Saw Something Scary on ship designed to reach the stars but which went much, much farther than that.
