Morbidly Beautiful

Your Home for Horror


On this week’s bonus episode of Cheer and Loathing, we pay tribute to the late great Tawny Kitaen with a friendly game of “Witchboard”.



You haven’t figured it out yet, have you listener? You’re the portal. 

On Friday, May 8th, 80’s icon and video vixen Tawny Kitaen passed away at her home on Newport Beach at the age of 59. Tawny starred in one of Stephanie’s favorite 80’s horror films, Witchboard. And Casey was kind enough to indulge her in a special bonus episode of CHEER AND LOATHING to celebrate this cult classic and to honor the memory of a redheaded rock ‘n roll horror goddess. We talk about the legacy of TTFN, debate the “real” pronunciation of Ouija (We-gee? We-juh? Ja Ja Ding Dong?), and consider the merits of gratuitous nudity. So move the planchette to HELL YES and join us for some wicked fun.

Watch the trailer for Witchboard.


In the U.S. where Stephanie is, Witchboard is streaming for free on Prime, Tubi, and Pluto TV. In Canada, where Casey resides, you’ll have to rent it (what the hell, Canada?). It’s available on Apple iTunes, Google Play Movies, or YouTube. It’s only a couple of bucks, and i’s worth every penny!

May Queen Month continues on May 16th for girls, girls, girls as we discuss The Final Girls (2015) and Tragedy Girls (2017). 



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).
