Excellent podcast that goes in depth with their reviews - each episode is well researched and covers every aspect of the production and the filmmaking it can, leaving no nook unturned in their research. But above all, the banter between the two hosts really lends to an interesting discussion as one is a horror veteran and the other is not. This contrast between the knowledge of the two hosts really gives a nuanced and wide approach to discussing the merits of the film. It never gets in the way of the intelligent discussion surrounding the film however, it remains focus with the occasional side comment along the way. Highly recommend for all lovers of horror!
As a sympathetic coward, I decided to start with the Hocus Pocus episode of WIYD, and I felt immediately like I was sitting in a room with people I knew. While horror is generally not in my wheelhouse, WIYD approaches it in a way that makes it fun even for people who don't like scary movies! Subscribed and waiting for more!
I’ve only just started listening to the show, but I absolutely love the dialogue between Derek and Aaron discussing the films. This podcast makes me want to dive into so many more horror films, I thought I loved horror films but it seems I need to expand my knowledge! Great energy between the two hosts, it makes for a fun listen - I’ve binged a few episodes in one sitting! I’ve learned a lot from just the handful I’ve listened to so far, super informative and great insight throughout the episodes. Love it!
The Watch if You Dare podcast is a must-listen for any horror movie fan. The hosts and their guests really love the genre, and are very knowledgeable. The episodes are nice and long, which is great for listening while at work.
Derek and Aaron have a great balance that they bring to this show. As a horror fan myself, this podcast brings an interesting dynamic that makes me think a little bit harder about the movies I enjoy. They clearly put a lot of thought and passion into the podcast, and it's well beyond your generic review show. I'm adding some movies to my watch list thanks to these fellas!
I love movie podcasts and this one is done very well! The hosts have different perspectives and it's interesting to hear both while also getting personal stories and connections to the movies they're reviewing. Great for cinema and horror buffs, enthusiasts, and fans all around. I would highly suggest this podcast!
We really enjoyed this podcast! It works well for people who are freaked out by horror (like us) and want to get a handle on a movie they really want to see and/or on horror as a whole. We imagine it'd also work well for people super into horror (the opposite of us) who want to revisit their favorite horror movies for recap, review, and analysis. Derek and Aaron have a lot of knowledge of the horror genre that they bring to the table and bounce off of each other in a way that's fun to listen to. Definitely recommend checking this podcast out~~
OK so this podcast is a wonderful concept. A horror movie buff and a guy with a full on aversion to watching horror movies come together to watch and comment on horror flicks. This show has a wonderful dynamic between the hosts and their personalities and reactions to the movies makes for a truly entertaining experience. They have an amazing chemistry and it is a good time that had definitely found a place in my regular play list. Whether or not horror is your thing I strongly recommend you give them a listen.
Derek and Aaron do more than just bring you breakdowns of horror movies, they really know what they are talking about and it shows. I personally started on episode 54: Gremlins (because the move Gremlins is a masterpiece). I am going to continue listening to more episodes (Silence of the Lambs episode is next for me). If you are looking for a horror movie podcast with great interaction between hosts, information you might not have known, or looking for reviews on horror movies you might not have seen, Watch if You Dare is a must!
This is a refreshing concept- a true fan of horror Aaron sits and discusses modern horror cinema with a cinematic "coward" (their word) Derek and have some funny, thoughtful, and pointed conversations about selected horror films spanning the last half century. One doesn't need to be a die-hard horror fan or have an encyclopedic knowledge of films to enjoy this podcast, rather you just have to be open to listening in on interesting discussions about some interesting films. Marvelous work gentlemen.
Solid podcast that gives the listener a few different looks at horror films. The conversation is engaging & keeps you hooked from the moment you press play. Check it out! - #ODPH
Watch if you dare is an amazing movie podcast focusing on all things horror. Get spooked with this engaging and hilarious podcast. It’s a must listen even if you’re not a fan of horror movies!
Looking for a movie podcast? Do you love horror and all things spooky? Well even if you're not a horror fan this may still be the podcast for you! The two host's will have you howling with laughter and fascination as they break down a different terrifying movie each episode and maybe find the horror movie for you!
I love how deep and nuanced this podcast gets. The hosts have great chemistry and give an entertaining look into the depths of the genre. If you are a horror fan, WATCH IF YOU DARE is a must listen.
"Watch If You Dare is a podcast exploring horror cinema through the eyes of a coward and the eyes of a longtime fan. Whether you’re a hardened horror expert, a casual in a love-hate relationship with scary cinema, or just a victim of a dare, join Derek, Aaron, and the occasional guest or two and face your fears" What's it about? Horror movies galore! Whether you even like horror or not, this show is for you. To be honest, I'm not a very big fan of horror movies - because I'm easily traumatized. But that doesn't mean I haven't watched or dabbled in horror stuff. This show is one of those things I dabbled with - because sometimes I want to be able to talk to people about horror movies, without having to watch it, hehe. Who are the hosts? Our hosts are Derek and Aaron, with a host of different guests. One is a coward and the the other one - a scary monster boi. I can completely one hundred percent understand the personalities of these two. I love reading about monsters but I'm a giant coward when it comes to scary movies. Why should you listen to them? The show is fun, and honestly, it appeals to my curiosity a lot. I really enjoy listening to them talk - and it definitely beats just reading the plot of the movie through wikipedia - which I am very much known to do. Suggested Episode Creep w/ Special Guest Director Zach Lamplugh - I'm not a big fan of found footage, but Creep is the rare exception. It's amazing what you can do with a limited budget, and only two actors. I loved the discussion during this episode! (Originally published in
If you are a horror fan or a horror noob this is the podcast for you. The dynamic between the guys is so much fun and super natural, you can hear the years of friendship in their conversation. Their guest hosts are always fun and bring a lot to the table. This is a podcast that feels like you’re sitting down with your friends and bullshitting about movies you love! Love the flow of the show and that they cover not only blockbusters but classic and more niche horror films! If you haven’t subscribed do yourself a favor and do so now!
Derek and Aaron entertain their listeners as they recap all the Horror Movies. The in-depth analysis is engaging and informative at the same time. I am late to the game, but this podcast is a definite addition to my weekly Pod rotation!
Great quality horror podcast. Audio quality is fantastic. Great chemistry between the hosts. Fantastic movie review podcast. Highly recommend. Definitely a subscribe!
Horror's not my thing, but this is a fun show to listen to, even for folks like me!
As a horror movie lover, I'm so happy I found this podcast! The hosts are hilarious and offer awesome insight about the films they cover, plus fun facts! This podcast feels like you're watching a movie with your best friends, and I look forward to every new episode!
