The Breakdown of Horror - 'Overlord', 'Wish Upon', 'The Cured', 'Under the Shadow, ' and 'Veronica'

Halloween is almost here and so it is time for our annual tradition The Breakdown of Horror, where we review five scary movies. We've got two very different zombie pictures with one being about dealing with the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse in The Cured and then we have those pesky zombies chomping at brains during World War II in Overlord. We also have three movies about hauntings and possessions, and these are as follows: the critically acclaimed Persian language movie, Under the Shadow, the loosely-based on true events Spanish possession flick, Veronica, and the Joey King starring movie about an insidious box that grants wishes, Wish Upon. As always, we had a great time recording the show and we really hope you love it. If you do love it, the best way to show your appreciation is spread the word on social media.

Reminder that you can subscribe either to The Movie Breakdown feed (a subscription link is at the top right hand of this site) or on iTunes (if you enjoy the show, please help us by giving us a five star review).
