Revisiting The Visit [Shamalayan's 2015 film] with Special Guest Christie Wright

Derik Zoo is in N'awlins with a bad case of Mania so Jeff called in Christie Wright, an avowed Horror agnostic with a sharp mind for stories, for a very special episode.

Since this special episode it calls for special treatment so our regular Jeff Hates Trailers got switched up and so did The Horror Reporter.  Nonetheless, in this episode Jeff and Christie review upcoming horror movie trailers, rank M. Night Shyamalan's post-Sixth Sense filmography, and take a trip into the world of The Visit!

Scream 3 (2000) (SSS 56)

The Triple S Pod is back, baby!

Sure, sickness can knock us off our horses but guess what? We're back in the saddle and #ScreamMonth rolls on!

This week we're looking at 2000's Scream 3, the clone-of-a-clone... erm... "quality" film that made the Scream franchise [briefly] a trilogy.  There's a lot to criticize in this one, very little to praise, and one very interesting point you won't want to miss (near the 37:44) mark).

So hit that download button, press play, and let's find out if there's anything scary about Scream 3 (beyond the production itself).

#ScreamMonth rolls on (even if slightly delayed) here on Saw Something Scary!  This time we're picking up with the sequel - full not only of the same kind of self-aware commentary that made the first such a surprise hit but even some additional wink-and-nod commentary.

Does it work as a film?  Does it work as a time capsule?  Does it work as a scary movie?

The Ritual (SSS 53)

It isn't even March and yet 2018 already has its surprise horror-hit, Norse-wilderness dreadfest The Ritual.

So hit download, press play, and head out into the woods of The Ritual with the guys from Saw Something Scary and find out!
