Morbidly Beautiful

Your Home for Horror


Love Nic Cage, or love to hate him? The debate continues on this week’s “Cheer and Loathing” with a look at “Vampire’s Kiss” and “Mandy”.


It’s week 2 of “Nic Cage Month” on CHEER AND LOATHING. Stephanie and Casey celebrate Valentine’s Day by exploring Cage’s lovesick roles in the infamous Vampire’s Kiss and the arthouse indie film Mandy. Whether he’s battling inner demons or a sadistic biker gang, Stephanie is head over heels for Nic’s unmistakable je ne sais quoi. Casey, however, fails to be seduced by Cage’s charms. Does love conquer hate in this very special Valentine’s episode? Tune in to find out!

In the US where Stephanie is, both Vampire’s Kiss and Mandy are available to stream for free on Shudder. In Canada where Casey is, Vampire’s Kiss is available for free on Shudder, while Mandy is available to stream on Hoopla or Club Illico.

Tune in next Sunday (2/21) for Week 3 of Cage Month. It’s our “Nic Exotic” episode where we’ll be exploring Saint Nic’s otherworldly roles in Ghost Rider 2: Spirit of Vengeance and Color Out of Space


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).
