Another spooky week of October means another spooky movie. Why not watch the Thai horror movie Shutter (2004) -- oh, what? You watched the US remake, Shutter (2008)? WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT?! Kate and Janine compare the two plots and discuss their survival plans if ghosts started showing up in their selfies.
There's something rotten in Ambrose, LA. Maybe it's the town of corpses covered in wax? Nah, it's gotta be this stinker of a 2000s horror movie! Brian from Blood Buddies joins Janine to discuss 2005's House of Wax.

We all know the feeling when we get really excited for a movie because of the trailers only to be sorely disappointed by the feature film. Not many films encapsulate this phenomenon better than The Black Dahlia (2006), which was slated to be a huge success yet did not deliver on its promises to tell the story of a gruesome murder investigation. David Hanna from Macintosh and Maud invites Janine to expeirience this disappointment for herself. In this longest episode of Guess What You're Gonna Hate? yet, they explore not only what makes this movie so terrible, but also the ethics behind the exploitation of a true murder victim to sell a movie that ultimately uses the story of Elizabeth Short as hardly more than a backdrop.

Final Destination (2000), the movie that launched a franchise, feels like a really long episode of the X-Files... only it uses Agents Weine and Schreck (yes, SCHRECK) to replace Agents Sculder and Mully. Wait, er -- obviously we meant Scully and Mulder! Listen to Kate talk about a horror series that she loves while Janine tries to figure out why it feels less like a movie and more like a really long episode of a beloved television show.
