Horror Hangout #311 : Thanksgiving (w/ Chris Mayo)

There will be no leftovers!


Thanksgiving is a 2023 American slasher film directed by Eli Roth, from a screenplay written by Jeff Rendell and a story by Roth and Rendell, who produced with Roger Birnbaum.


It is based on Roth's mock trailer of the same name from Grindhouse (2007). It is the fourth feature-length film to be adapted from one of the mock trailers in Grindhouse after Robert Rodriguez's Machete (2010), the sequel Machete Kills (2013) and Jason Eisener's Hobo with a Shotgun (2011).


The film stars Patrick Dempsey, Addison Rae, Milo Manheim, Jalen Thomas Brooks, Nell Verlaque, Rick Hoffman, and Gina Gershon.


After a Black Friday riot ends in tragedy, a mysterious Thanksgiving-inspired killer terrorizes Plymouth, Massachusetts - the birthplace of the infamous holiday.

  • Horror Hangout #324 : The Strangers (w/ Lucy Buglass)

    02:16:18
    Because you were home.The Strangers is a 2008 American psychological horror film written and directed by Bryan Bertino. The film follows a couple (portrayed by Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman) whose stay at a vacation home is disrupted by three masked intruders (portrayed by Kip Weeks, Gemma Ward, and Laura Margolis) who infiltrate the home one night. It is the first installment in The Strangers film series.The screenplay was inspired by two real-life events: the multiple-homicide Manson family Tate murders and a series of break-ins that occurred in Bertino's neighborhood as a child. Some journalists noted similarities between the film and the Keddie cabin murders that occurred in Keddie, California, in 1981, though Bertino did not cite this as a reference.00:00 Intro17:18 Horror News 28:59 What We've Been Watching46:17 Film Review2:05:12 Name Game2:09:37 Film Rating2:13:56 OutroPodcast - https://podlink.to/horrorhangout​​​Patreon - https://www.patreon.com/horrorhangoutFacebook - https://www.facebook.com/horrorhangoutpodcastTwitter - https://twitter.com/horror_hangout_TikTok - https://www.tiktok.com/@horrorhangoutpodcastInstagram - https://www.instagram.com/horrorhangoutpodcast/Website - http://www.hawkandcleaver.com​​​Ben - https://twitter.com/ben_errington​​​Andy - https://twitter.com/AndyCTWritesLucy - https://twitter.com/lucyjadebuglassAudio credit - Taj Eastonhttp://tajeaston.com
