The Sixth Sense

Night is falling on Now Playing Podcast!  Dive headfirst into our Gold Level Series, and discover the twisted storytelling of M. Night Shyamalan - starting with his breakout hit The Sixth Sense. Prickly feelings on the back of the neck tell hosts Stuart, Arnie, and Jakob that things won’t get better than Bruce Willis helping fragile child medium Haley Joel Osment to see dead people in a positive light. But was this box office phenomena a brief flash of brilliance, or the second coming of Steven Spielberg? Find out how Night’s story ends when you Donate Today.

Silent Hill: Revelation

It’s homecoming weekend in Silent Hill, as teenage runaway Sharon reunites with her darkside doppelganger Alessa for a 2012 sequel in 3-D!  Will the Revelation that cultists have kidnapped adoptive father Sean Bean provide a good reason for moviegoers to head back into the fog and solve new puzzles? And is Game of Thrones hunk Kit Harington much help in the fight against Pyramid Head, a lunatic Malcolm McDowell, and a staff of faceless demon nurses?  Find out when you take another merry-go-round ride on the Now Playing Arcade!

Silent Hill

The Now Playing Arcade finally has a reason to put down the flamethrower!  Hosts Arnie, Stuart, and Justin stumble through the falling ash of Uwe Boll films to arrive at Silent Hill - the rare video game movie to earn box office success. Will stranded mother Radha Mitchell find any Green Arrows while searching the West Virginian ghost town for her missing adoptive daughter Sharon?  And is that a pyramid, or a dunce cap, atop the head of the sword-wielding monster that follows close behind her? Quiet your questioning mind with another podcast review!

Phenomena (a.k.a. Creepers)

Before she battled David Bowie in the Labyrinth, Jennifer Connelly fought off a deformed serial killer at her Swiss boarding school in Dario Argento’s demented fantasy Phenomena. Better known as Creepers in the States, the movie finds the teenage beauty using paranormal powers to befriend flies, lightning bugs, and swarms of flesh-eating insects (not to mention crippled entomologist Donald Pleasance and a razor-wielding monkey). Donate for Silver Level and help convince Arnie, Jakob, and Stuart they didn’t just dream the whole thing up while sleepwalking.

Hereditary

Because we consider you family, Now Playing is releasing a bonus podcast review of Hereditary for your Halloween enjoyment.  Will Arnie, Stuart, and Jakob lose their heads over what’s become the most hyped horror flick of 2018?  Or is the sight of Toni Collette’s model household going insane more likely to induce headaches than heart palpitations?  You don’t need to worship King Paimon to acquire these answers. This show is free for everyone, and available now, as our way of saying Happy, Happy Halloween!

Children of the Corn: Runaway

Stuart, Jakob, and Arnie tried to Runaway from their Stephen King duties in 2018, but the tenth installment of Children of the Corn has found its way onto the Now Playing calendar in time for Halloween!  Join these podcasters as they catch up with Ruth - a fugitive of the Gatlin corn cult who is forced to fight He Who Walks Behind The Rows for custody of her teenage son. Will Feast director John Gulager find a kernel of a good idea in a franchise that’s yielded a steady crop of Red Arrows?  The only way to know if the hosts survive this harvest is to Listen Now!
