Episode 66: A Tale of Two Top Tens

For their third anniversary, the Women In Caskets take a moment to reflect on some favorites and bring you not one, but two terrifying top ten lists. The first list answers the question, what would you consider the most impactful deaths in horror? The ones that reach right in and rip your emotions out or set the stage for the horror to come? The second is an answer to the classic question, what's your favorite scene of stomach-churning, watch from behind the eyes, I-just-can't-take-anymore gore? The full lists, along with some amazing suggestions from our followers is on our website, you can go there for more details. Correction: Karina Longworth's podcast is You Must Remember This, we got the title wrong. We're so sorry because it's an essential podcast if you're a movie history fan.

Episode 57: Through the Black Mirror

Love. War. Guilt. Hatred. Fear. Vengeance. Technology. Since 2011, Black Mirror has been, in our humble opinion, the pinnacle of using technology, science fiction, and horror to delve deep into what makes humanity tick and how the human condition can be so easily twisted and manipulated. So obviously, we're gonna gush all over it in a super-sized episode! Join Jen and Dawn as they take a look at the reflections of five of Black Mirror's best episodes: Fifteen Million Credits, White Bear, White Christmas, San Junipero and Men Against Fire.

Episode 73: Once Upon a Cabin In The Woods... Again

It's time again, for Dawn and Jen to go on a journey of re-discovery through one of horror's most beloved franchises: The Evil Dead. After three movies and over thirty years, daring filmmaker Fede Álvarez does the unthinkable and helms a remake*, daring the fates to strike him down.   ...and no one was more surprised than your hosts that he actually pulled it off. Taking a new cast, new characters, and a new script into the great wilds of a New Zealand set, Álvarez managed to capture the spirit of the original, chucking the yuks-yuks and focusing on the story of five young people caught in the grips of terror. With a returned focus on practical gore, what results might not have been gonzo box office success, but it was a more than worthy edition to the Evil Dead series. This episode is the fourth and final in a series that will cover all three Evil Dead movies and the 2013 remake.

Episode 32: Subverting "The Final Girls"

Jen and Dawn look back at the 2015 gem, The Final Girls, which does what so many other movies fail to do: subvert the traditional final girl trope while being the perfect example of the final girl trope. Cliches that aren't as shallow as you think, a plot that keeps moving whether the characters want it to or not and Dawn's desperate attempt to keep at least one damn plot point a secret for the audience made for a fun chat.

It's time. Jen and Dawn have reached the end of the Nightmare canon and all that's left is Freddy's Dead and Freddy vs. Jason.* The Women In Caskets have come a long way and it's time to end it all. With detours into Twin Peaks, John Waters, Looney Tunes and more cameos than you can shake a stick at, along with ruining Jen's favorite scene and Dawn's attempts to apply logic to a horror movie, they pick at the bones of Freddy Krueger. There's... not a lot there. Which is a damn shame. This episode is the first part of a two-parter that covers Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare and Freddy vs. Jason.
