Morbidly Beautiful

Your Home for Horror


Just in time for the holidays, we serve up a plate of dysfunctional family horror to help you feel better about your own fckd family.


Listen on Anchor

It’s almost Thanksgiving in the States and the start of the holiday season, which means many of us will be spending a lot of time with loved ones. For some, that’s a real treat. For others, trying to get through those dysfunctional family dinners can be its own real-life horror show. In honor of those poor, unfortunate souls, this week’s theme is FCKD FAMILY. We’re talking about films where family is a real F word, and our two featured films are The Loved Ones (Casey’s pick) and Paranormal Activity: Next of Kin (Steph’s pick).

Watch the trailer for The Loved Ones.

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 will be headed your way every other Sunday. Be sure to follow us on social media for teasers, show announcements, and more. 

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).
