Due to some technical difficulties, we are unable to bring you a new episode of Argue The Toss this week. Instead, please enjoy one of our favourites from the archives – a horror movie showdown, just in time for Hallowe’en (even if it was originally recorded in July 2018). We’ll be back on schedule soon, and there’ll be a brand-new episode for you in two weeks.
In the long-awaited third installment of our “Completely Unseasonal Theme Episodes” series, this week Argue The Toss goes full horror with a double-bill of scary movies, four months from Hallowe’en. Chella and Drew have been to see A24’s supernatural witch-based psychological horror slash family drama Hereditary, and unrelatedly, A24’s supernatural witch-based psychological horror slash family drama The Witch. They now return to somehow try and find some common ground between these two movies.
Which movie is the scarier? Which witch is most eldritch? Do the police exist in the world of Hereditary? Are epi-pens important to people with fatal allergies? And what is the appropriate response to a level 3 Witch Situation? One of these questions answered herein.
