Morbidly Beautiful

Your Home for Horror


We spend the night with old favorites, and it may just be a bloody good time; we’re talking remakes with “Fright Night” and “Evil Dead”.


Listen on Anchor

Welcome to Cheer and Loathing…for real! 

It’s the end of remake/reboot month on the cast, and we’re going out with a bang. This week, we’re chatting about the 2011 remake of Tom Holland’s 1985 film FRIGHT NIGHT as well as EVIL DEAD, the 2013 remake of the 1981 film written and directed by Sam Raimi. In one corner, we’ve got tight leather pants, A-list actors bringing their A-game, and a Brewster who’s so cool we can hardly stand it. In the other corner, we’ve got buckets of blood, atmosphere for days, and a young scream queen who goes to hell and back for her craft. Many remakes are trash, but are some worthy of recycling? Tune in to find out!

Watch the trailer for Fright Night.

Watch the trailer for Evil Dead.


In the U.S. where Stephanie is, you can rent Fright Night (2011) on most VOD platforms. It’s also widely available to rent in Canada, where Casey resides, but you can also catch it for free if you have Disney Plus. In the U.S., Evil Dead (2013) is free on Starz or Directv, or widely available to rent. In Canada, the film is streaming on Netflix, Starz Play, Crave Starz or for free with ads on CTV.

Join us next Sunday as we hail Satan with our new month-long theme: The Devil Made Me Do It. We’ll be discussing the return of Nic Cage in Willy’s Wonderland (2021) and the comedy horror film we encourage you NOT to Google, Porno (2019). 



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).
