Josh Krebs grew up obsessed with horror movies. Liz Krebs was so frightened by an accidental glimpse of Nightmare on Elm Street 4 when she was seven, she swore off the genre forever.
But they love each other – so much that they dreamed up the podcast Bloody Date Night, where a horror movie expert and a total novice share what happens when you introduce who you love to what you love…that they’re probably going to hate.
In each episode the newlyweds break down a different horror movie that they watched without each other. Josh could be seeing them for the 10th or 20th time and for Liz, it’s always a first-time viewing. The husband and wife then come together in the studio to discuss, dissect, and flirt just a little. It’s the most fun you’ll have being a third wheel.
In February, Bloody Date Night celebrates Women In Horror Month by covering two movies directed by women: 1987’s neo-western vampire cult classic Near Dark directed by Kathryn Bigelow, and XX, 2017’s horror anthology featuring shorts by Karyn Kusama, Mary Harron, Annie Clark, Jennifer Lynch and Jovanka Vuckovic.
We hope you’ll consider including Bloody Date Night in your podcast roundups and recommendations this month. With Women in Horror Month, plus Valentine’s Day, Liz and Josh are the perfect antidote to Hallmark cards and conversation hearts.
Episode 44: Near Dark will be released on February 14th, but you can preview the episode here. Episode 45: XX will be released on February 28th. Bloody Date Night can be found on iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, and all your favorite podcatchers.
