Hello! In today’s episode we have April and Al back on to discuss A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge. We try to get to the bottom of whether or not Freddy even gets revenge on anyone, all the psycho-sexual drama, and just how gay the movie is. A good time is had by all.

Insidious Chapter 2 (2013)

Hello and welcome to the much anticipated “Insidious Chapter 2” episode of Dead Times. Well this episode was a struggle, our first attempt didn’t record anything, and our second attempt was plagued with audio problems. But the actual content of the episode is pretty great, (okay, I am being a little hyperbolic). But we ask the crucial question “Do time travel paradoxes apply to ghosts?”

Scream (1996)

In today’s episode Peter and Tim watch the ultimate slasher movie, “Scream.” It’s one of Peter’s favorite movies, and they talk about how it is a meta-textual comment on slasher movies, and also just an excellent example of the genre. We dig into the characters and puzzle out their complex motivations. And wonder what could possibly be going on with that high school principal.
