Morbidly Beautiful

Your Home for Horror


This week on the cast, we celebrate Father’s Day by discussing the remakes of “The Amityville Horror” (2005) and “The Omen” (2006).

From the eternal sea, this podcast rises, creating armies on either shore, turning man against his brother, until man exists no more. You’re welcome! 

It’s remake/reboot month on Cheer and Loathing. In honor of Father’s Day, we discuss two modern remakes revolving around father figures. In The Amityville Horror, George Lutz becomes a new dad to three kids when he marries a beautiful widow. But winning their approval becomes a hell of a lot harder when the family’s new home comes complete with demonic possession, turning George into a very scary (but very sexy) psychopath. In The Omen, a well-connected U.S. ambassador gets offered a handy replacement baby when his son is stillborn. Seems like a great deal, until he discovers he’s raising the spawn of Satan. Are these remakes of horror royalty hellacious…or a hell of a good time? Tune in to find out!

Join us next week as we hail Satan with our new month-long theme: The Devil Made Me Do It. 



Cheer and Loathing

She’s a lover, he’s a fighter. Together, they’re CHEER AND LOATHING.

Tune in to hear your hosts, Stephanie (Cheer) and Casey (Loathing), clash over the films they love — and the ones they love to hate. With a new theme each month and related topics each week, they’ll make a case for the good and the bad; it may even get a bit ugly!

Stephanie (Cheer) is the Editor-in-Chief for Morbidly Beautiful, and Casey (Loathing) is the Program Director and host of the Ominous Origins Podcast.

New episodes of the CHEER AND LOATHING podcast typically drop the first three Sundays of every month, with possible bonus content every fourth Sunday based on listener feedback — or our desire to keep talking about movies! 

Cheer and Loathing is hosted by Stephanie Malone and Casey Chaplin. You can find Stephanie on Instagram at @srgreenhaw or on Twitter at @smalonedesign. Casey, unsurprisingly, hates social media. But you can still follow him on Instagram @ominousoriginspod and Twitter at @horrorshotsprod. Check out our show page on Anchor to catch up on any episodes you may have missed. Our illustrated, Halloween-inspired Cheer and Loathing avatars were hand-drawn by the incredibly talented Kitty Morgan (@kittymorgann on Instagram).
