On this week’s Cheer and Loathing, high art and horror collide with ‘oh my god’ moments and mad matriarchs in “Hereditary” and “The Others”.
THIS EPISODE: “THE OTHERS” AND “HEREDITARY”

It’s “What a Twist!” month on Cheer and Loathing. This week, we’re delivering arthouse horror, supernatural scares, and iconic leading lady performances with The Others, starring Nicole Kidman, and Hereditary, starring the incomparable Toni Collette. Stephanie hails the Oscar-worthy performances and emotional depth, while Casey remains unphased by the hype and revisits one of his favorite catchphrases: “Meh.” Let’s all try to keep our heads about us as we buckle in for one hell of a ride!
