One Final Scare—Horrorcast

Once coworkers, always friendly competitors for the spotlight, Minki Kim and Tracy Mathews share their love of horror movies — and talking over each other — by retelling every gory detail of one horror film each week. Join these creatives by day, novice film critics by night, as they walk through one movie from start to finish with the hopes that listeners will come back...for one final scare.

EP 23: Martyrs (2008)

What do Tom Cruise, Patrick Swayze and Sam Rockwell have in common? No clue. Minki only spied on one of them. But apparently Minki and Tracy want to talk about all three of them for a while before kicking off the convo about this week’s movie. After some chatter about cut-off shirts, scientology and creepy roles that forever change the way you see actors, the hosts discuss this French Extremity film that came out with a barrage of dark and gruesome horror films in the early 2000’s which took torture porn (the ever popular sub-genre in America at the time) to a whole new level.

EP 22 Part 2: The Host (2006)

Yep, this is a two-parter, folks, so please listen to Part 1 and then...you guessed it, Part 2. It’s been a long time since these two have gotten together and this episode’s movie is a long one so, Minki and Tracy have a lot to talk about. Hear Minki and Tracy talk about their first live show experience (which you should listen to if you haven’t already), the short film contest they participated in recently, the horror con they’re going to next week and oh yeah...their

LIVE at Flashpoint theatre—The Smiling Man (2015)

It’s the first LIVE show...and the first attempt at keeping their banter, movie recap and review to JUST 30 minutes. Quite a challenge for these chatty Cathys. Minki and Tracy introduce themselves to their audience at Laugh Index Theatre’s Comedy Festival, which ran the month of June, and then they open with a few jokes and pokes at each other before getting into this horror short which ran through the film fest circuit last year.

EP 21: The Monster (2016)

Bro-ey breweries and flavored vodkas and bourbons, oh my! Minki and Tracy talk about these things AND Tracy’s husband’s Instagram followers for his craft beer review page, which is an ironic opening to a discussion about this episode’s movie which follows a very young mom who struggles with alcoholism. Her actions as a bad mother to her 11-ish year old daughter makes us question who the real monster in the movie is...her or the unexplained monster, lurking in the woods, who tries to eat the mom/daughter duo after they become stranded on a dark and abandoned back road. Minki couldn’t get over the ridiculous-looking-man-in-a-bad-monster-suit during the whole single-location movie.

EP 20: Consommé (2016) / In The Night (2015)

After watching last episode’s movie, Minki wanted to watch ANOTHER feminist movie depicting a strong female lead who has to protect herself in an antagonistic world...but this time, one written and directed by a female...since he thought the male writer and director of Teeth wasn’t quite as careful with his storytelling as he should’ve been. So, the hosts chose the first horror short, of the two covered in this episode, because it features a bad ass chick with a “fire inside,” which proves to come in handy when rape-y men come along. Then stay tuned as they hack up the second short for failing to take its decent premise

EP 19: Teeth (2007)

Minki’s been prepping for his big sketch comedy performance and Tracy has been cleaning up dead bunnies from her backyard, but that doesn’t stop them for doing what they do best...watching horror movies, retelling and assessing them. In this episode, they “cut their teeth” on discussing allegories for rape by diving right into the mouth of this subversive, counter-culture film. With motifs of “the avenging angel,” “rape revenge” and “the special gift” prominently used, this dark comedy horror features a lead character who goes from being an abstinent teen to an empowered woman who uses a certain special power to fight off the numerous hostile males in her life.

EP 18: We Are The Flesh

Tracy and Minki watched a porn on Mother’s Day...or so it seems. That’s right—these dedicated hosts ditched their moms to watch and discuss this Mexican horror. There is definitely lots of nudity, close-up shots of genitalia and graphic sex scenes in this unique film. Oh wait, there was also some murder and cannibalism, but definitely less of that in this art-house, surreal erotic horror. Nice camera and lighting work,

EP 17: He Took Of His Skin For Me (2014) / Cutting Moments (1996)

We know, we know...the co-hosts said that this episode was supposed to be about the new sci-fi horror, Life, but Minki couldn’t find it to download or stream and Tracy didn’t want to run through the movie alone...so, they’ll do it another time! Instead, they chose to watch two gruesome short horror films, one new and one a bit old yet pretty friggin memorable, both delving into the darker side of relationships. Practical SFX in both are downright solid, the first taking 8 hours to get a guy to look like he has no skin on him and the second...well, does the name Tom Savini ring a bell? Tracy, the usual horror short hater, really enjoyed both of these while Minki was a little more critical but overall pleased with the double feature.

EP 16: Cherry Falls (2000)

If every extra was named in the credits, this movie would include “Blurry Asian Kid #1” because our very own Minki Kim stars in this teenage slasher flick...which means he pops up in the background for a split second during a high school fight scene between a boyfriend and girlfriend. Don’t blink if you watch it to find him! But hey, the actress in the scene was Cybill Shepherd’s daughter and he was on set with the late great Brittany Murphy, and that’s pretty cool. So, this episode begins with a discussion about Minki’s brush with Hollywood and how Tracy “FALLS” all of the time. The two get into how this movie (which seems to be influenced by Psycho, Scream, and Prom Night), takes the typical horror trope of “only the virgins survive” and flips it on its head.

EP 15: The Void (2017)

Minki and Tracy first discuss an outing they took to see comedian, Rachel Feinstein. They do a poor job of describing her jokes and funnyness...but you should still check her out. Then they stumble through their first Skype chat as they discuss this throwback to 80’s horror films,
