With a decade of monumental horror coming to an end, we pay homage to the genre's recent past by looking back at the horror releases of 2015 and 2016 on a new episode of Corpse Club!
2015 and 2016: it was the years when we were introduced to the Upside Down, bid a heart-wrenching farewell to the Tall Man, learned what it meant to "live deliciously," and discovered that even computers can be haunted by a vengeful ghost. As the decade worked its way past its halfway mark in 2015 and 2016, horror fans were treated to bold new voices behind the camera, imaginative original stories, and sequels that took beloved characters into unpredictable territory.
Continuing our retrospective series on the 2010s with a special episode that spans two years of scares, Scott Drebit, Tamika Jones, Derek Anderson, and Jonathan James take a look back at some of the most memorable horror releases of 2015 and 2016 that made an impressionable splash in the past that continues to ripple into the present. From the relentless curse of It Follows and the emotional journey of Phantasm: Ravager to the ravenous zombies of Train to Busan and the return of Ed and Lorraine Warren in The Conjuring 2, the Corpse Club co-hosts discuss a wide range of horror movies released theatrically in 2015 and 2016, and they also talk about notable video games and TV series from that two-year span, including the first season of Stranger Things and the slasher-centric story of Until Dawn.
So, join us on another installment of our journey through a decade filled with horror remakes, groundbreaking original films, binge-worthy series, and immersive video games. The 2010s may be getting ready for the grave, but thanks to the decade's immeasurable influence on the world of horror, there's no way it will rest in peace!
