Sergio's Birthday Bonus: SICARIO (2015)

For Sergio’s birthday, his present was actually being able to choose the movie! Of course, he chose the 2015 thriller SICARIO, because he has no idea what a horror film is.

Join us as we review the film, argue over Benicio del Toro’s morality, and discuss possible sequels. Also, stick around to listen to Sergio unwrap his SECOND birthday present!

Apologies in advance for not being able to access certain dialogue clips we reference in the episode. DMCA and all that.

“Mamá” Andrés Muschietti

“Lights Out” David F. Sandberg

“Saw” James Wan

“The Monster” Jennifer Kent

Apologies for the audio being swimmy this episode (and in the outro to follow). We had technical difficulties. Thanks for bearing with us for this super fun episode!

Join us as we review the fiLm, discuss the death of sitcoms, and gush about that fateful water scene about as much as the pipes in the basement gush brackish sludge. See you this weEKend for FRIGHT NIGHT!
