Morbidly Beautiful

Your Home for Horror


If the holidays make you want to run and hide, we’ve got a gift for you; it’s isolation horror and the return of Nic Cage!


Listen on Anchor

It’s our last official episode of 2021, and we’re talking isolation horror. After this week’s barn burner, both Stephanie and Casey are gonna need some isolation — especially from each other! Tune in to hear what happens when Steph dares to pick another Nic Cage movie. This one happens to be critically acclaimed. But can Casey find it in his black heart to appreciate it? You’ll just have to listen to find out as we talk about The Ritual (Casey’s pick) and Pig (Steph’s pick).

Watch the trailer for The Ritual.

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).
