Warning: Spoilers Ahead
Much like our resident Horror Virgin on the pod, Todd, I was never too big on the horror genre. Sure, as a kid I would watch horror movies with my parents, brother, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends, but I was always the one who would be the most scared by them. I used to avoid them like the plague for the most part for my adult life, unless one really caught my interest, such as Drag Me To Hell or the IT remake. They still scared me. It wasn’t until I found this podcast over a year and a half ago (and later found out that I’d discovered it on Todd’s birthday) that I found myself sitting down to watch more horror on my own.
People in the Facebook group and the Discord server have seen me around, posting my scary scale ratings on the horror I watched all through last October (I was very proud of myself for watching a different horror movie every night, no matter how much they scared me). Or have seen me post notes of my reactions to movies like Insidious 2. I figured it might be fun, and maybe insightful to the dead inside, to let people see what goes through the mind of a horror virgin while watching the movies done on the pod that are closer to a ten than to a one.
Today’s pick was a more recent episode. Incantation is a Taiwanese horror movie found on Netflix, about a mother trying to protect her young daughter from the consequences of the curse placed onto her by supernatural forces.
Is it really controlling with your mind or is it the footage itself changing direction?
What in the fuck is happening?
Why does this child have so many goddamn teeth?
What taboo, though?
Holy fuck that was unexpected
Police camera footage
No I do not wish to stay, Ronan
No I will not chant
Woofy the dog. Dodo is so cute
Ming really cares about that little girl
This deity sounds like Jean Jacket from Nope
Don’t trust that street shot
Ronan did an excellent job with Dodo’s room
Nope don’t trust that
What is she staring at
Gross ass bug
I hate this I hate this I hate this
Why is only the fridge light on
Dodo stop messing with the lights
Oh that’s the hall
Jump Scare 1: The Elevator
Deeply hate this
What the fuck is going on
It’s the fucking symbol
Pay attention to the road
Why move it?
Should’ve taken the out
How uncomfortable for Dom
What even are those bugs
Dodo fully bit that kid
What the hell kind of bite mark is that, Rohan
DON’T REACH FOR IT
WHAT THE FUCK
He was calling Dodo crazy? Then she was right to bite him
Bunny is now a nanny cam
WHAT THE FUCK GET HER
Pineapple, bunny, woof woof woof
Little kids are too perceptive sometimes
Did she not go back to worship the Mother-Buddha?
Yuan is the funniest person in this movie
Never follow the creepy child to a second location
Stop looking at the dolls before one turns its head
Oh, they’re frogs
This is a no from me
Holy shit no
Can we not kill the small child?
No No No
How the fuck did she survive that
SHE LEFT HER BUNNY
Is that a predator head?
NO NO NO
She said the prayer
That was molten ass glass
You’re all stupid for this
Girl, if you’re not feeling well, don’t go
I’m so sorry, Ronan
Ming is back!
Hope they put that baby back in her seat
Nah, I wouldn’t go down there
Ronan, how do you know there’s a first child down there
Run, bitch, get away
That was the lightest slap in existence
Holy shit why are you still here
No thank you get me out
Why do you want to watch the tunnel shit so bad
I can’t do the pulling teeth stuff
Please stop, Ming
He’s looking worse the more he looks into it
I don’t want him to die
dying like Caroline from Host
They both died because you gave Dodo food
Nope Nope Nope
Hate this so much
No fuck this
Do Not Hurt The Baby
I refuse to chant this for my own well-being
Don’t watch that
Nobody sees this sick little girl walking around? Okay
(Johnny voice) They’re coming to get you, Ronan
Why are you doing this in the middle of a hospital?
No I do not need this footage thanks
Stop touching shit that isn’t for you
leave you’re going to let something out
get away from this shit
It’s not for you
No wonder this shit is after you
Y’all better be giving Mother-Buddha something
fuck all of this
Nope Nope Nope Nope
Should’ve turned back when you could
Stop calling shit to you man
Holy fuck Holy Fuck Holy fuck
She bought her the dog :(
Nobody closed that goddamed tunnel?
Don’t Like This
Trypophobia Nightmare, the remix
No No No
In conclusion, I’d definitely give this movie a 6 on the scary scale. Through my journey of watching horror movies, I’ve found that possession really gets to me on a deep level, even though I am not and have never been too religious a person. The “too many teeth”, teeth pulling, and too many holes in the skin are definitely things that give it that extra yikes factor that sets me on edge. Despite how much it freaked me out, Incantation is an excellent movie that I might revisit in the future to see how much it affects me then. I am around in the Horror Virgin Discord server, so if you have a movie that you want me to watch, I’m down to do it.
Have an excellent day, you bunch of nerds!
