When a man's long-term girlfriend disappears, a vicious monster begins stalking his house at night. Can he learn to overcome his own traditional masculinity and accept Lisa Loeb into his heart?

Show Notes

Fright Level: Spoopy (mostly not scary)
Trigger Warnings:
Violence toward animals, gaslighting, jump scares, moderate alcoholism, Florida

We brought in an additional psychologist for a second opinion as Karley Richard joins the podcast to talk about "After Midnight." After Midnight is a 2019 movie written by, directed by, and starring Jeremy Gardner and co-starring Brea Grant, Henry Zebrowski, and Justin Benson. It's about life love and monsters that are either aliens, your shape shifting girlfriend, or your radioactive housecat in Northern Florida.

Hank's girlfriend has disappeared and since then every night a giant clawed creature has been trying to get into his house. It's a movie about relationships and also about scary monsters. It's about gaslighting asshole brother-in-law cops and also about sweet redneck friends that will grab a hatchet and come help you hunt your monster. It's about overcoming traditional masculinity and drinking gorilla farts. Come join us as we swirl, sniff, sip, and savor the rare horror romance of After Midnight.

PLUS: Is this our most awkward post credits outtake yet?
