Morbidly Beautiful

Your Home for Horror


We go on a dark ride with one of our favorites in “The Passenger” and see if the much-anticipated “Natty Knocks” lives up to expectations.

This podcast was recorded during the 2023 WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes. Without the labor of the writers and actors currently on strike, the work being covered here wouldn’t exist.

We begin, as always, with talk of the latest horror headlines.

Barbie continues its box office onslaught, but how did it fare against Haunted Mansion? And what would have happened if it had come out at the same time in 2019?

What kid has not, at one point or another, dreamed of being an astronaut? Who has not gazed at the stars or wondered what is out there? How many have demanded the upcoming streaming service from NASA?

Then it’s on to our featured new movie reviews, including one “not for everyone” indie horror hit and a highly anticipated, star-studded miss. 

The Passenger

We have reviewed four movies with Kyle Gallner on our humble little podcast. From his underserved role in Smile to the amazing Dinner in America, the actor has shown incredible range. The Passenger sees him in another role, unlike anything we have seen. But is that a good thing?

Teaming up legends Robert Englund, Bill Moseley, and Danielle Harris is a great way to draw in genre fans. And the sheer power seems like enough for a good time.

With the rest of the cast putting in strong performances and the director of Halloween 4 at the helm, there seemed to be no way Natty Knocks could fail. So, what happened?


Last week, we talked about the Fantasia World Premiere of Sympathy for the Devil.
