This week on the Talk Without Rhythm Podcast I'm bringing my Satanic month full-circle by returning to witchcraft in cinema. On deck are two films considered by Mark Gatiss to be part of a "folk horror" movement in the UK: 1968's Witchfinder General and 1970's The Blood on Satan's Claw.

This week on the Talk Without Rhythm Podcast I'm discussing a duo of diabolical haunted house sequels with 1982's Amityville II: The Possession and 2016's The Conjuring 2. I also explore the roots of my deepest childhood fears and respond to some criticism of previous recordings.

This week on the Talk Without Rhythm Podcast I'm continuing on my exploration of Satanic Cinema with two offerings from Roman Polanski: 1968's Rosemary's Baby and 1999's The Ninth Gate. And since Roman Polanski is a...controversial figure in the history of cinema (what with the time he drugged and raped a 14 year-old girl) I'll be revisiting an old yet still evolving conversation about the cognitive dissonance that results from admiring the art of a terrible human being.

This week on the Talk Without Rhythm Podcast, I'm joined by my buddy Kelly Forbes in an examination of two modern cinematic takes on witches: 2012's The Lords of Salem and 2016's The Witch. And true to the abiding espirit de TWoRP, we have a sprawling conversation covering the polarizing status of Rob Zombie, the modern appeal of Satanic stories, the death of the multiplex, and proper razor technique when shaving one's head.
