Morbidly Beautiful

Your Home for Horror


On this week’s episode of Cheer and Loathing, we explore satire, slashers, and social media with “The Final Girls” and “Tragedy Girls”.

Tragedy Girls


Listen on Anchor

Some podcasts are destined to be the virginal final girl who saves the day, while others down a bottle of Adderall and perform an epic striptease to “Cherry Pie”. Guess which one we are. 

Mötley Crüe said it best (when was the last time that sentence was uttered, if ever?)…what we need is girls, girls, girls. We need “Final Girls” and “Tragedy Girls”. We need girls in peril and girls doing very bad things. We need serial killers, quick-witted teens, killer 80s tunes, satire, and social commentary. We need the horrors of “Camp Bloodbath” and the even greater horrors of high school. Join us as we ask important questions, like, “What’s scarier, masked machete-wielding killers or fame-obsessed teen girls?”

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).
