The Haunting of Hill House (2018) The Haunting of Hill House (2018)

Shirley Jackson's novel The Haunting of Hill House stood as a horror classic for nearly 60 years before director Mike Flanagan (Hush) expanded its walls into a 10 episode miniseries for Netflix.  Nell, Luke, and Theo are now the children of house flippers, spending the summer of 1992 seeing ghosts in renovated basements and hallways. Should the Crain siblings blame specters like Tall Man and Abigail, or their secretive father and crazy mother, for why their lives are so messed up in 2018?  Now Playing invites you to settle in for a forever podcast. Listen now!

The Haunting (1999)

Producer Steven Spielberg and director Jan DeBont (Speed) poured a lot of time and money into remodeling Shirley Jackson's classic ghost story into the much reviled 1999 remake of The Haunting.  Long before she played clapping games with Ed and Lorraine Warren, Lili Taylor was conjuring bad spirits during her stay at a mansion where hundreds of child laborers perished.  Do we need Liam Neeson’s science experiments to know there’s nothing scary going on?  Arnie, Jakob, and Stuart are here to clean house with a brand new podcast.  Listen Now!     

Jennifer‘s Body {for Annual Subscribers}

Is there more than meets the eye to Megan Fox?  The screen vixen takes a break from being objectified in Transformers movies to star as a literal maneater in the 2009 horror-comedy Jennifer’s Body. Can former Mean Girl Amanda Seyfried keep her high school boyfriend safe after a satanic emo band turns her cheerleader BFF into a backbiting monster? And are player haters Arnie, Jakob, and Stuart going all Benihana on screenwriter Diablo Cody because they’re lime green jello about her Juno Oscar win?  Find out when you become a September Patron! 

Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

Could the next Legend of the Marvel Cinematic Universe be an unassuming San Francisco parking valet who prefers late night karaoke to taking down his father's infamous Ten Rings terrorist cell?  Martial artist Shang Chi is ready to answer the call for a modern Asian American superhero. But do comedienne Awkwafina, Crouching Tiger star Michelle Yeoh, and the Man Who Would Be The Mandarin (aka Ben Kingsley) offer enough protection for a magical gated community besieged by soul-sucking serpents? Hop aboard the Now Playing bus to find out!      

Candyman (2021) {For Annual Subscribers}

Who can take a franchise, sprinkle it with dew, and get whole new generations buzzing about a gutted corpse or two?  Executive producer Jordan Peele can, because he mixes love for a 1992 Tony Todd slasher with the inflammatory racial politics of Get Out and Us.  Is it performance art or possession that drives a desperate Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Aquaman) to strap on the iconic hook and paint the gentrified Cabrini-Green neighborhood red in 2019?  You can summon the thoughts of the Now Playing hosts anytime you want when you Donate for Candyman today!
