Morbidly Beautiful

Your Home for Horror

Bloody Blog

From having to do your job in the middle of an apocalypse to the worst teambuilding exercise on earth, let’s talk workplace horror!

THIS EPISODE: “PONTYPOOL” (2009) AND “CORPORATE ANIMALS” (2019)

Listen on Anchor

In honor of Casey’s triumphant (or, let’s just call it tragic) return to the workforce, we’re celebrating the horrors of earning a living. As if just having to show up each day to that evil place where they keep our paycheck isn’t horrifying enough, these films show us what happens when things get much, much worse. For each of our first-time watches, Casey picked an indie horror classic out of Canada (big surprise), 2009’s Pontypool. And Stephanie hates teambuilding, so she visited a recent horror-comedy from one of her favorite indie filmmakers, 2019’s Corporate Animals.
