Bring out the Ouija board, and let’s conjure some demons for the 101st episode of the podcast where we discuss the 2017 Netflix hit “Verónica”.
ABOUT THIS EPISODE:
Until today, this podcast remains unexplained.
This week on They Mostly Podcast at Night, Chaos and Carnage are boldly declaring that numbers above a hundred exist with their hundred and first episode! Grab your favorite spirit board (so much more than Hasbro (NSFW)), gather your friends during an eclipse, and conduct a seance — because it’s time to summon demons in Verónica!
If you are a new listener to the PaNcast, be aware there are spoilers and expletives ahead! We break down the movie, go through a summary, offer analysis, trivia, arbitrary awards, reviews, ratings, fanfiction and more!
“Three innocent catholic schoolgirls play with a Ouija board during a solar eclipse… and things go awry.” – Carnage’s five second summaries.
Verónica is a fifteen year old girl whose father has recently died. Her mother now spends all her time working to support them, and as a result it falls to Verónica to care for her three siblings. As a means of harmless escapism, Verónica subscribes to an occult magazine. One month comes with a spirit board and instructions for conducting a seance during a solar eclipse. Conveniently, a solar eclipse is nigh.
Verónica and her two besties gather under their Catholic girls school during the solar eclipse, while everyone else is on the roof watching the sky. Everyone but Sister Death, but she’ll come back later. The girls use the spirit board, with Verónica’s aim being to contact her dearly missed father. The thing that comes through the spirit board claims to be Verónica’s dearly departed dad, but what happens next seems more the work of a malevolent spirit. And whatever it is seems to have followed her home…
Check out the trailer for Verónica below. It is currently streaming on Netflix, so give it a watch first and then join us for a lively discussion about the film. And be sure to tune in next week for Scream 2, currently streaming on Amazon Prime!
