28 Days Later | Not All Men: The Movie
The movie that made zombies fast and camera work faster. None other than Danny Boyle's 28 Days Later. In this episode Sirenia and Michelle make fun of some very artistic choices, compare this zombie outbreak to Covid, and break down the alternate endings. Did we find this one scary? I think you already know the answer, but what you probably didn't know, is that this rape-y mess is considered the 97th best British film of all time. More fun facts await for those who dare to listen!  Interact and request movies that scared you @nothingscaresus on IG and Twitter!

Ju-On: The Grudge | Amused & Confused
In honor of Asian Heritage Month, we're diving back into the world of J-horror with Takashi Shimizu's Ju-On: The Grudge. Did we find this seminal work of Japanese horror as terrifying as others?

Try not to hold a...grudge.  On a more serious note, please visit stopaapihate.org to learn more about the recent string of anti Asian violence in America and what you can do to help.  Interact and request movies that scared you @nothingscaresus on IG and Twitter!
