Morbidly Beautiful

Your Home for Horror


Join us for an extra serving of holiday horror goodness with a look at “Thanksgiving” and the rest of the weird turkey day genre offerings.



In the first part of my two-part turkey time celebration, I get excited to see Eli Roth’s Thanksgiving and share a short list of some other films that take place during that holiday time — be it an escaped slasher visiting a family for some turkey, killer twin fun with cranberry sauce, a little modified turkey meat, a killer bird or some rabid Black Friday shoppers. Pull up a chair and fix a plate of some weird holiday horror films. This is a short and spoiler-free episode, btw.

Listen above, then head below for part two, where I dish on Eli Roth’s addition to our Thanksgiving horror plates.


In this episode, I’m talking all about Eli Roth’s Thanksgiving (2023), based on Roth’s fictitious trailer of the same name from Grindhouse (2007). It’s a surprisingly well-received (by both critics and audiences) slasher that actually gives horror fans a satisfying Thanksgiving holiday horror film. Do not worry; it is a spoiler-free review. I also get in a tiny rant about the holidays, but it’s mostly a slasher TED talk. Bring your plates and come sit at the table with me and The Carver.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my lovely listeners; may your plates always be full of nourishment for your body, soul, and horror heart!
