SSS [In the Ring] #3 - Payback House of Horrors Preview

House of Horrors.  This, rather than a shot at regaining his title, is what WWE Creative has served up for Bray Wyatt, the Triple S podcast's most esteemed athelete-entertainer.  It seems, then, that House of Horrors is an apt description of Bray's Wrestlemania 33 presentation and, sadly, everything thus far subsequently.

So we know the lineup for the card.  We know that WWE is trying to figure out how to pull off a House of Horrors match.  We'll be tuning in to watch whatever they come up with.  But will we see something scary?

Download and find out!

P.S. -  Be on the look out for our next episode covering the 1991 classic The Silence of the Lambs; due to timing we had to release this episode first but we're excited to take another look at Lecter with you.

They Live (SSS 15)

So John Carpenter once made a campy little sci-fi with a professional wrestler as the lead and - what do you know - it became the most lastingly relevant film in the genre.  And that's only slightly hyperbolic.

Long before Morpheus handed Thomas Anderson a red pill John Nada beat his friend Frank down in a grimy alley so he'd see the world the way it really is.  And perhaps, through John, we do too.

So slap on your cheap sunglasses, grab some chewing gum, and buckle in for the Triple S review of 1988's They Live.  Watch along and you'll see a man walk away from a 30 foot fall through a plate glass window.  You'll see thinly veiled indictments of all things capitalist.  But will you see something scary?

SSS [In the Ring] #2 - WrestleMania 33 Follow Up

The guys take a look back at the good (AJ / Shane) and the... well... bad (sadly, Bray Wyatt / Orton) of Wrestlemania 33.  Of course they'll also talk about the Undertaker leaving it all in the ring as well as some, shall we say, frustrations about one particular WWE Superstar.

If you liked the last SSS [In the Ring] on Bray Wyatt or if you just took the guys' advice and signed up to watch Wyatt wrestle Orton then please give this one a listen.  If you didn't hear the last but have at least a passing interest in professional wrestling then we hope you'll find this episode interesting as well.

Wrestlemania 33 was the spectacle it was sold as.  Those who tuned in saw a show few can rival in terms of pure entertainment value.  But did they see something (anything?) scary?

The Exorcism of Emily Rose (SSS 14)

Is it illness or something... darker?  That's the question at the center of the story in 2005's The Exorcism of Emily Rose.

The guys from the Triple S pod dive in to find the answer, along the way checking out trailers for new films about Tupac Shakur, Heath Ledger, and a TV adaptation of Stephen King's The Mist.  There's also a pretty sharp parting of ways on the comparative merits of the Pirates of the Caribbean versus The Fast and The Furious franchises.

The journey passes through an isolated and desolate farm before landing in the halls of justice.  Look over there and you'll see a very young, very fresh, pre-Dexter Jennifer Carpenter.  Or look over there and you'll find a pre-Insidious, pre- Dr. Strange Scott Derrickson.

But be careful: you look too long and you might see something scary.  Want to know for sure?  Download and find out!

Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon (SSS 13)

Come with the guys from the Triple S Pod back to the days of yesteryear known as 2006. There you'll find a piece of metatextual cinema known as Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon.

On the way back in time you'll stop in on the first trailer from the remake of Stephen King's It before taking a look at a film which materializes out of nowhere, charms its audience, and disappears just as quickly as it appeared.

But will you see something scary?
