If any of these topics or related topics are harmful to you, please skip ahead to 56:38 seconds to listen to our second review, or hold off listening to this episode until a later date. Please take care of yourselves first. Rarely do we have an opportunity to discuss a movie as recent as this with its source film, which is nearly 90 years old at this point. And in doing so, we may have found one of the best movies of 2020, and definitely one of the best horror movies in recent years. Leigh Whannell is already a bit of a legend in horror circles for his work on Saw, Insidious and the recent techno-body horror-action thriller Upgrade. But his most recent effort is an exercise in restraint and clarity of vision, and in doing so, he’s created a movie more terrifying and anxiety-inducing than anything we’ve seen in quite some time. Meanwhile, its distant cousin is a Hollywood horror classic, though not as well known as the more heralded Dracula and Frankenstein. It suffers from the production limitations of the time, and an almost comic tone that lingers too much to let the real terror shine. But there’s something about the story and Claude Rains that still kept us engaged enough to appreciate its possibilities.

CONTENT WARNING: Murder, voodoo, racism, suicide, serial killers, possessed dolls, child endangerment, childhood trauma, blaming the victim, parents not believing children, violence, technological horror, artificial intelligence, gore. On paper, it’s the most ridiculously laughable premise for a horror film. Mom buys kid a doll possessed by the soul of a serial killer, doll terrorizes family, have to kill doll. It sounds like a movie destined for video trash greatness. Instead, 1988’s Child’s Play is a taut thriller with awesome horror elements, and because of the budget and craft that went into the making of the film, the premise is elevated to a pretty great horror movie. In fact, having seen the recent 2019 reimagining, we’re tempted to say the original might hold up better, even with some of its very tone-deaf and problematic material. Both movies play in some interesting and occasionally frustrating waters, but we have to give credit to the filmmakers for these two movies - they’re bold takes on the horror genre.

Let’s be clear - we’re big fans of the look of these episodes, they’re telling some cool stories. But yowzers does this episode feel slapped together. The chance to meet some Viking ponies or hooved Centurions is pretty great, and we’re always moved by stories like Mistmane’s, teaching that beauty can only be fully embraced when it’s shared with others. But for an episode that (spoiler alert) has some pretty big implications later this season, there’s a lot to be desired.
