The Horror Obsessive Podcast Episode 5: The Best of 2022

Up until now, every episode of the Horror Obsessive Podcast has been dedicated to discussing a single movie, but for our last episode of the year, Sean and I decided to do something a bit different. This time, we’re recapping our five favorite horror films of the year, and we have an absolute blast doing it.

Unsurprisingly, our lists don’t overlap much (although, to our shock, there is one title that occupies the exact same spot on both of our lists!), so we get to discuss a wide range of movies, including big theatrical releases, smaller VOD and streaming films, and even a few festival favorites that will be released to the public in 2023 (but don’t worry, we don’t spoil anything). So whatever you want out of a best-of-the-year list, you’ll be sure to find it here.

That’s the bulk of the discussion, but it’s not the only thing we talk about. At the end of the episode, Sean and I also briefly take a peek at 2023, and we look at some of the more promising movies that will be coming out in the new year (as well as some not so promising ones!). We touch on the big titles most fans already know about, like Scream VI and Evil Dead Rise, as well as a few smaller releases that might not be on your radar yet.

It’s a super fun discussion all around, so come join us as we celebrate another great year for horror and preview what the genre has in store for us in 2023. And as always, stay tuned for our next episode in two weeks, as Sean and I will be bringing you a very special treat. We’re going to be joined by Pierce Berolzheimer, the director of the fantastic creature feature Crabs!, for what’s sure to be another riveting conversation.
