Morbidly Beautiful

Your Home for Horror


This week on the cast, we discuss the notorious reimagining of “Halloween” by Rob Zombie and the reviled reboot of “Friday the 13th” (2009).


Listen on Anchor

From the blackest eyes to stupendous tits, this episode is totally insane…TOTALLY! 

This week’s podcast themes are traumatic childhoods, devoted moms, the high price of bullying, and the pastiche of a good mask. Find out what happens when two horror icons of the slasher heyday get reimagined for modern audiences. It’s an absolute bloodbath — and we’re not just talking about what happens on screen. So leave the kids with the horny babysitter and gather ’round the campfire while we regale you with two timeless tales of terror.

Watch the trailer for Halloween.

In the U.S. where Stephanie is, you can rent Halloween (2007) on a variety of VOD platforms. In Canada, where Casey resides, you can find it on Cineplex. As for Friday the 13th (2009), that’s streaming on HBO Max in the States, or free on Tubi with ads in Canada.

Join us next week as we celebrate Father’s Day with a look at two more modern takes on horror classics, featuring some very bad dads: The Amityville Horror (2o05) and The Omen (2006).



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).
