Morbidly Beautiful

Your Home for Horror


We soared into the WWII horror flick “Shadow in the Cloud” with high hopes, but was this month’s Guilty Pleasure a triumph or a catastrophe?

Shadow in the Cloud

Welcome to Guilty Pleasures, the show where we give in to pleasure, taking flight with a modern horror film to find out just how guilty we need to feel about loving or hating it.

It was Jack’s pick this month, and he had us suit up for WWII horror. We asked our adoring fans to choose between 2020’s genre-bending SHADOW IN THE CLOUD and 2019’s vampire horror BLOOD VESSEL. In another razor-thin online vote, SHADOW IN THE CLOUD just nudged out the competition to earn its tour of operation on the podcast.

Spoiler alert: there’s no clear consensus on this one, so expect lots of spirited debate!

Come along for the ride as we earn our stripes and find out if SHADOW IN THE CLOUD IS a soaring pleasure or a guilty sin that crashes and burns. 


Coat the rim of a coupe glass with sugar, if desired, and set aside. Add 1 1/2 ounces cognac, 3/4 ounces of orange liqueur (such as Cointreau), and 3/4 ounces of lemon juice (freshly squeezed if possible) to a shaker with ice and shake until well-chilled. Strain into the prepared glass. Garnish with an orange twist if desired. Enjoy this slightly sweet, sophisticated treat!
