We discuss the horror movies that fooled us (for better or worse) on a new episode of Corpse Club!
Sometimes you watch a horror movie expecting one thing based on its marketing, and instead you get something completely different—for better or worse, the joke's on you. In the spirit of April Fools' Day, on this episode of Daily Dead's official podcast, co-hosts Scott Drebit, Bryan Christopher, and Derek Anderson look back at some of the most memorable horror films that fooled them, leading to pleasant surprises, shocking screenings, and the occasional (yet still entertaining) letdown.
From deceptive trailers and posters to unpredictable plots and directing to enigmatic DVD covers and conversations with friends, listen as the co-hosts discuss how they were fooled by misleading marketing and skewed expectations for a wide range of horror films, including Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday, Happy Birthday to Me, Black Christmas (2006), and more! So sit back, relax, and enjoy this episode of Corpse Club as we look back at the horror movies that may have fooled us, but let us in on the joke by the end!
