Episode 26: 'You're Next' & 'As Above, So Below'

Welcome! This week, Jon and Joel pull a double-feature horror night, and later manage to scare each other with their own idle glances. First up: at a family get-together in an isolated manor in the woods, would shouldn't masked men start picking off unwitting participants? Anything to distract us from the ridiculous familial angst, amirite? The film is 'You're Next', and the kills are glorious. Then, the J's follow some rogue catacomb-divers WITH DARK PASTS to the infernal gate of Hell. In film #49172, 'As Above So Below', the only way out is down.

And it's not just the movies that are dealing in refinement and transformation. Big, exciting things are happening  in the J&J neighborhood, things you won't want to miss. But in the meantime, why don't you enjoy a little rambly chatting and film reviewing from the guys? Don't worry, some things never change. Jon will talk podcast-editing, and Joel will get real, really real. It's episode 26 of 'Talk & Trivia, With J&J'; there's no turning back now.

- Jon feels a little gross for using the word "stupider" in conversation, even if it is technically grammatical.
- Joel means 'Dante's Inferno' when he says 'Paradise Lost'. But neither Jon nor Joel have read either, so shame on both of them.
