Morbidly Beautiful

Your Home for Horror


Candace and Ariel are joined by Chelsea Stardust for their Vintage Halloween Special, featuring horror classics and Chelsea’s party mix!


The time is nigh! From the black and white world, Candace and Ariel are hanging out with filmmaker Chelsea Stardust for our annual Vintage Halloween episode, where we discuss some of the most festive pre-1970 horror films.

Get ready for this triple feature. Spanning three decades, we’ve got atmospheric and suspenseful psychological classic Cat People (1942), followed by Hammer campfest The Curse of Frankenstein (1952 – and in color!), in which Peter Cushing is toxic in his little outfits. Last up, the low-budget indie nightmare of our hearts, Carnival of Souls (1962).

In case you’re wondering, there is a common theme in these movies, but you gotta listen to find out. We can’t just give you everything in the description, okay?

We can give you Chelsea’s amazing Halloween mix though!

Also, our Letterboxd has been mega-updated, so you can take a look at everything we’ve watched for the show.
