Happy Monday, Christmas Fanatics!

This week, Kendall Farrae of “Two Girls, One Crypt” joins us for our latest installment of “Christmas Horror Month”! Discussed this week? The 2023 slasher-comedy, “It’s a Wonderful Knife”! While the elves loved “There’s Something in the Barn” and found “The Mean One” so bad it’s good, is there anything redeemable about this week’s film or is it a giant dud? Well…you’ll just have to listen to find out! But one thing’s for sure: bad or not, it’s a really fun discussion, especially with one of our favorite recurring guest hosts!

So settle in, relax, and enjoy this festive, laugh-a-minute episode, which we promise is the perfect way to kick off your week! Enjoy and, as always, thanks for your love and support, y’all!

Happy Monday, Christmas Fanatics! And Happy April 1st! Can you believe we’re a quarter of the way through the year already? We sure can’t! Yet, here we are – one major holiday closer to the most wonderful time of the year!

This week, the elves kick off “Animation/Children’s Movie Month” by covering the 2023, Disney Plus original movie, “Diary of a Wimpy Kid Christmas: Cabin Fever“! The elves’ reactions fall all over the place with this specific film, and we’d bet you’ll be surprised about which elf feels what  – and no, the feelings expressed are not part of an April Fool’s Day prank! Regardless of how your hosts feel, however, they have a blast discussing this new holiday movie amongst plenty of other things!

So, settle back, relax, and enjoy this extremely festive episode! As always, thanks for your love and support, y’all! ❤️🎅🏻🎄🎁 🦌🦉⛄️🔔🚂 🤶🏻 🎀 ❄️

Happy Sunday, Christmas Fanatics! And Happy Easter! We hope the Easter Bunny was good to all of you and that you have a blessed day full of food, family, and friends!

To celebrate the occasion, please enjoy this special bonus episode in which Julia and Anthony (sans Thom, who had prior commitments the evening this was recorded!) travel back to the trippy world of Rankin/Bass for the first time in almost *two years* to discuss their 1971 holiday special, “Here Comes Petter Cottontail“! Even by Rankin/Bass standards, this one is bizarre – but that makes the conversation between your two hosts all the more hilarious as they try to make sense of it.

So, after enjoying your Easter hams and all of the chocolate bunnies and eggs you can stomach, settle in and enjoy this holiday treat! And get excited – because we’re another major milestone closer to Christmas! As always, thanks for your love and support, y’all! And again: Happy Easter! ❤️🐇🐥🥚🍫🧺🎅🏻🎄🎁 🦌🦉⛄️🔔🚂 🤶🏻 🎀 ❄️

Ho, ho, ho! In this festive edition of “Tis the Podcast”, we’re bringing back the 90’s to dive into the comedic chaos of the 2023 Christmas movie, “Urkel Saves Christmas: The Movie!“, based on the classic TV show, “Family Matters“!

Before analyzing the antics of Steve Urkel as he tries to make Christmas better (and fails on every level), the elves talk Disney World and Anthony introduces his new podcast “Change My Movie Mind,” in collaboration with “Film Strip Podcast‘s” Jay Skipworth.

We then head back to the North Pole to dissect the awful musical cartoon version of Steve Urkel. Is it as all cringeworthy, or does it occasionally, and unexpectedly, hit the right notes? Find out in our in-depth discussion!

For all you ghostly fans, stick around until the end where we talk the upcoming “Beetlejuice” sequel, “Beetlejuice Beetlejuice“! To quote the ghost with the most, “It’s showtime”!

So, grab a mug of hot cocoa, put on your favorite ugly Christmas sweater, and join us for a trip down memory lane. Remember, Christmas isn’t just a season, it’s a feeling! 🎁🎄🎅

Until next time, stay frosty! And make sure to keep the Christmas spirit alive all year round. Happy listening!

Happy Monday, Christmas Fanatics! And Happy February! One month down on our journey to the 2024 Holiday Season!

This past week, life got in the way for all of the elves and they were unable to record! But never fear, for they’ve decided to drop this once Patreon-exclusive episode as a sneak peek at the extra bonus content you can get for as little as $1.00 per month if you subscribe to us there!

This episode was last October’s inaugural episode of a series of Patreon episodes that Julia and Anthony have been doing – a Patreon spinoff show, if you will – “Tis the Ruined Podcast“!

For those who don’t know, “Ruined” is a podcast that Anthony and Julia could have done in another life; it features two friends – Halle Kiefer, who loves horror films, and Alison Lieby, who won’t watch them – who sit down each week to discuss a different scary movie. After Alison watches the trailer for the film they will be covering, Halle walks her through the plot of the film in question, beat-by-beat, and Alison reacts to the movie she’ll never watch as she guesses the twists, deaths, and plot along the way.

It’s a fantastic podcast, and one that both Anthony and Julia are obsessed with! And because they were made for this concept, they decided to borrow it to cover a particularly gruesome horror movie that Anthony adores and Julia will never watch: Damien Leone’s “Terrifier“!

Even if you’ve never seen the film, you’ve probably seen its main antagonist – Art the Clown! So listen as Anthony walks Julia through the horrifying plot and she tries to guess Art’s every move, which characters will survive, and which will succumb to his various methods of torture! Even if you’re not a horror film fan, this is a really fun episode you’ll most definitely want to check out! (Though not with kids in the room! As this was originally recorded for Patreon, there is some coarse language!)

So settle back and enjoy! And make sure to keep your eyes on Patreon all year long as we have tons of bonus episodes planned for the premium subscription! If you’re not currently subscribed, you may want to consider doing so! If not though, never fear! For we’ll be back in your main podcast feeds every Monday with your regular Christmas programming – including next week! Thanks for excusing our lack of a new episode this week, and for putting up with our brief foray into spookiness instead! As always, we appreciate all of the love and support! ❤️🎅🏻🎄🎁 🦌🦉⛄️🔔🚂 🤶🏻 🎀 ❄️

Regardless it’s a fun and festive episode filled with interesting debates and more than a few history lessons courtesy of Thom Crowe.

So, settle back, relax, enjoy, and get excited about the fact that we’re one month closer to the most wonderful time of the year! As always, thanks for your love and support, y’all! ❤️🎅🏻🎄🎁 🦌🦉⛄️🔔🚂 🤶🏻 🎀 ❄️
