Ep279: I Did Naaaaaht!

Today, the Kicking the Seat Podcast and Keeping it Reel's David Fowlie enter The Room, and are forever changed! The guys talk about James Franco's surprisingly touching new comedy, The Disaster Artist, and the weird cycle of art imitating life imitating art. If you haven't seen The Disaster Artist (which is now playing in Chicago, and opens wide this Friday, November 8th), feel free to check back in when you're sufficiently ready to handle spoilers.

Also, Ian dishes out some homework for Wednesday's special Mercury in Retrograde episode, including David's conversation with writer/director Michael Glover Smith, and A Movie Guy Leo Brady's fireside chat with star Najarra Townsend! Join us here in a couple days for Ian and David's in-depth conversation, in which Michael and Najarra delve into the making of one of 2017's very best films!

Episode 279 is your future husband!

Ep277: Permanent Vacation

Today, the Kicking the Seat Podcast celebrates Black Friday with some black magic! Yes, Ian welcomes back Aaron Christensen of Horror 101 with Dr. A.C. to talk about Wes Craven's 1978 TV thriller, Summer of Fear, out now from Doppelganger Releasing!

How does this safe-for-general-consumption story of a witch moving in with an unsuspecting suburban family stack up to the director's previous hardcore-horror work, and the iconic films he would create in the ensuing decades? Is Linda Blair actually a not-so-great actress? And how many times can Ian get a character's name wrong in one introduction?

Listen in and find out. Plus, Ian reminds you about the perfect way to spend this holiday weekend: with the Tragedy Girls!

Episode 277 is under the spell of bad 70s hair!

Ep275: The Triumph of TRAGEDY (and CRAIG ROBINSON!)

Today, the Kicking the Seat Podcast and Keeping it Reel's David Fowlie get schooled in the ways of modern slasher-dom with a look at Tyler MacIntyre's deep, dark horror/comedy, Tragedy Girls! The guys unpack the kills, crack-ups, and commentary of this brilliant indie about two high-schoolers whose social media empire hinges on their investigation of a murderous local psychopath. In the mother of all twists, the girls' incessant blogging and Tweeting turns out to be a devious cover for their own grisly exploits!

And because this is a special "Diamond" episode (meaning there's a "75" in the show number--woo-hoo!), you'll hear some thoughts on Tragedy Girls from one of its stars: the hilarious Craig Robinson! Listen in to hear what the Office alum wants to do next, and to find out why Ian had to use the "Bleep" button for the first time in KtS Podcast history!

Episode 275 would love if you "liked" it!
