The Scariest Things Podcast Episode 157: Insights from Our Top 100 Horror Film List

Our year-long project to update our top 100 Horror films is now complete! Now that we’ve got them all revealed, what changed from our 2018 list, and did we find any patterns or trends? The Scariest Things Podcast Team sat down to share our thoughts about how the list turned out. What we loved, what surprised us, and what we think will become of the list in the future. The curating of our list was the effort of many people, and it delivered a broad and diverse spectrum of the genre, from every age and every type of horror.

Eric’s Review: Mad God (2022)

Eric’s Review: Mad God (2022)

★★★★ out of ★★★★★

The living master of stop-motion animation, Phil Tippett has finished his 35-year-old passion project, Mad God. It is a technical and visual triumph, an astounding achievement of effort, care, and craftsmanship. Notably, Mad God is also full of yucky puppets. It is also devoid of a clear narrative story. It resembles the visions of Hell by Hieronymous Bosch put into animated stop motion.

Simply put: Mad God is surreal, profane, disturbing, confusing… and FREAKY.

Eric’s Review: Werewolf by Night (2022)

★★★★ out of ★★★★★

Marvel is dipping its toe into the horror genre. It’s an homage to the great Universal and Val Lewton era of film, with glorious black-and-white. It’s gorier than you would expect a Marvel/Disney production to be, and it has all the right feels. It’s short, punchy, and a whole lot of fun. Michael Giacchino steps away from his composer’s chair to take the director’s set, with great success. Here’s hoping they turn it into a continuing series.
