This week, we had friend of the show (and artist of the sister show Special Grade Snax) Ognjen (@slitherbite, @kaloliferart on to talk about Kiefer Sutherland's wacky reflection escapade, Mirrors! We talked about the scars this movie left on us as kids, anime, and Destiel (for like, WAY too long). Listen to Ognjen's Initial D podcast, Fujiwara Podcast Shop!

EPISODE 187: Blood Quantum

Gobble gobble, punks! It's (inter)national Fuck (American) Thanksgiving day! This year, your friends at Fearbaiting are not-celebrating this whitewashing of the grim legacy of colonialism by inviting friend of the show John (@_FlourishCaster) on to talk about Blood Quantum! Join us as we discuss... largely dumb bullshit (you can put a fucked up girl anywhere, decadent doobers, fuck-energy meals, you know the drill) peppered with conversations about the history of indigenous people in North America in order to contextualize this film about zombies. You can also find John on Instagram @_bedroompunk or on their CFMU radio show The Sound of…

EPISODE 186: Gremlins 2: The New Batch

EPISODE 185: The Boy (2016)

The Schlocktober curse has struck us yet again, folks! Delayed by a flat tire on the car of your intrepid editor, interrupted by the computer of your intrepid editor crashing halfway through recording, also I think Sara spills water on her powerstrip at some point, idk, or perhaps... there's a man in all of our walls causing this mayhem! For the answers to these queries and more, join us and our guest this week, Sylvia (@sylvisurfer, suspiciously unmarred by the aforementioned and absolutely previously established Schlocktober curse), as we peer behind the dry wall and dive headlong into The Boy…

EPISODE 184: Chain Letter

You heard about phones? And e-mails and shit? Fucked up. This week, Brooks and Eddy of Funpoint, 5 Grams of Iron, Yare Yare Boys, and other podcasting enterprises are here to take a few swings at the digital hellscape that is The Internet as we watch and talk about two very different versions of Chain Letter. We also pour up a gloop - that's a gloop and a splurgy. RECOMMENDATIONS: One bad gloop and she do what I yoinky Jujutsu Kaisen Behind the Bastards Hell Like Heaven Intro and outro music by Satah, and more music of theirs can be…

EPISODE 183: Countdown

And lo, as the sun sets across the horizon, a chill shivers down your spine - you know, undoubtedly, that Schlocktober has descended upon you yet again, and there is nothing you can do to impede its ceaseless march. For you're fully aware that any attempt to do so would be an extreme breach of the terms of service. Y'know, like an app? Like in the movie Countdown, where there's an app that kills you? We had the Noisespace king Matt (@mattgcn) and queen Stephanie (@ageofoddish) on to talk about the movie whose elevator pitch was certainly nothing more than…

EPISODE 182: Excision

Whoof!! Time to strap in, folks, because this week Sara is joined by Blair (@blairkitsch) once again, in prep for Schlocktober, to dive headlong into a film that has more difficult needles to thread than a seventh grade Home Ec class. So, pull on your surgical gloves and consider the implication of a horror movie tackling young adult psychosexual fantasies as we discuss Excision! Topics include: r/childfree, Protestantism, a discussion about surgery with a real human nurse, and really more intellectual work than you should sincerely expect from your hosts, so, c'mon, be grateful. RECOMMENDATIONS Hades The Venture Bros. Theme…

EPISODE 181: Ginger Snaps Back: The Beginning

Welcome, welcome, to the 1804 edition of Fearbaiting! It's pretty similar to current podcast, but we recorded this into a gramohpone instead of computers, because it's 1804! Luca (@minervasden) comes back to complete the Ginger Snaps trilogy with Ginger Snaps Back: The Beginning, as we also spend a frankly unforgiveable amount of time talking about Final Fantasy XIV because this movie didn't really give us a lot! Oops!!!! RECOMMENDATIONS: Blowback Final Fantasy XIV Episode edited by Satah, who also provided the intro and outro music! They make music as people you meet outside of bars, and you can check out…

EPISODE 179: Beyond the Black Rainbow

The piper has come again, and it's time to pay up! By which I mean, it's time for our quarterly segment on Twilight, and you're just gonna have to sit through Sara and guest Ferris talking about the baseball scene!
