Morbidly Beautiful

Your Home for Horror


On this episode of the “Adventures in Movies!” podcast, we return to the subject of Westerns and try to unravel the disaster of “The Empty Man”.

A while back, the guys discussed the decline of Westerns in Hollywood. Now it’s time for a second look. We also talk about The Empty Man. Based on the comic series by Cullen Bunn, it’s one the most mismanaged movies of 2020.


The show starts with talk about another big announcement from a streaming channel. Shudder has announced their plans for the beginning of 2021, and they are exciting. We also talk about what we are looking forward to at Sundance, including an El Paso documentary and lots of horror movies.

The Empty Man will go down as one of the most mishandled movies of all time. The movie was promoted a week before its release, and even then the trailer did not accurately represent the movie. Danny, Blake, and Nathaniel try to unravel one of the most confusing movies in recent years.

The main segment this week is on Westerns. Your hosts try to cover the items brought up by listeners after a previous segment on the genre. We talk more about older Westerns, look to the future of the genre, and discuss why it has not had the lasting appeal of other genres.


ADVENTURES IN MOVIES! is a weekly journey into the deepest and darkest recesses of film. From the latest genre film news and reviews to interviews with independent films’ brightest creators and stars, hosts Danny, Blake, and Nathaniel act as a voice to the voiceless. Born out of a shared passion for movies and a mutual obsession with talking about movies, the trio decided to take their post-movie watching, theater parking lot discussions to the masses.

Be sure to tune in every Saturday for new episodes of ADVENTURES IN MOVIES! on the Morbidly Beautiful Network.
