Morbidly Beautiful

Your Home for Horror


On this week’s “Cheer and Loathing” we explore another dimension of Nic Cage with a look at “Spirit of Vengeance” and “Color Out of Space”.


It’s week 3 of “Nic Cage Month” on CHEER AND LOATHING. After spending Valentine’s Day with the Sultan of Suave himself, we’re spending this week exploring Saint Nic’s otherworldly roles in Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance and Color Out of Space. Whether pissing fire and punishing the guilty, or playing with alpacas in the midst of a cosmic clusterf*ck, Stephanie thinks Cage is absolutely out of this world. Casey, however, thinks Cage’s career success is an unexplained phenomenon. Do the stars finally align to get our hosts on the same page? Tune in to find out!

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 CHEER AND LOATHING drop the first three Sundays of every month, with possible bonus content every fourth Sunday. 

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).
