Tell Me When It’s Over

Everyone’s entitled to one good scare – some of us just like it more than others. Tell Me When It’s Over is a podcast for horror fans and first-timers alike, which takes a stab at the greatest horror films of all time to find out why they’re so damn good. Each week, horror aficionado Lucy O’Brien and terrified newcomer Claire Reilly watch a classic from the horror canon, partially to watch Claire die inside, but mostly to discover the joys of this much-maligned film genre.

32 - Soft and Quiet (2022)

Tuesday Dec 12, 2023

Tuesday Dec 12, 2023

This week, it's time for a wild pivot in the Home Invasion genre with a film that is dark and haunting for a whole new raft of reasons: the directorial debut from Beth de Araújo, Soft and Quiet. 
Sometimes the most terrifying villains aren't masked men with chainsaws...

31 - Us (2019)

Sunday Nov 19, 2023

Sunday Nov 19, 2023

This week, Luce and Claire crack into Jordan Peele's brilliant 2019 film, Us (much like you would crack into a skull and eat the juicy brains inside). They talk about Peele's clever easter eggs, Lupita Nyong'o's stunning performance, and the true message of the home invasion genre: If our homes are our life skin, then aren't our skins really just our skeleton homes? Makes you think...

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Tell Me When It's Over has officially turned 1! That's right, Rosemary's Baby is all grown up. We're celebrating horror's biggest holiday and the first movie of our "Home Invasion" genre with a very special episode. So special, in fact, that this week Claire and Luce watched not one movie, but TWO: the French (and/or American) nightmare that is Martyrs. 

29 - The Descent (2005)

Wednesday Oct 25, 2023

Wednesday Oct 25, 2023

Spelunking in the dark caves of North Carolina? Squeezing yourself through tight passages and traversing underground chasms?? Going on a forced-fun girls trip and having to wake up early instead of sleeping in?!? It's a HARD NO on all those things!
Thankfully, this week Luce and Claire just have to talk about the horrors of caving (as well as the creatures that lie beneath) as they review the British deep-hole drama, The Descent. It's our last Monster Movie - let's let loose!

28 - Shin Godzilla (2016)

Monday Oct 16, 2023

Monday Oct 16, 2023

This week, nature is wreaking vengeance... in the form of a rapidly-evolving, blood-gushing, googly-eyed ocean monster that's taking over the city of Tokyo. That's right, Claire and Luce are talking about Shin Godzilla... or are they actually talking about mankind's incompetence and hubris? Kaiju be the judge!

27 - Jaws (1975)

Monday Oct 02, 2023

Monday Oct 02, 2023

It's the 4th of July weekend in an American seaside town, the teens are drinking on an unpatrolled beach and the mayor has a jacket that screams "nautical chic with a side of small-town hubris" - what could possibly go wrong! This week is Shark Week, as Luce and Claire dive deep into their fears of the water with a Spielberg classic, Jaws.

26 - Cloverfield (2008)

Tuesday Sep 26, 2023

Tuesday Sep 26, 2023

We love New York! We love Lizzie Caplan! We love huge monsters rampaging through Manhattan and messing up the Statue of Liberty! And you'd better BELIEVE we love seeing it all captured on a HandyCam that has a questionably-long battery life. So it's only natural that Cloverfield was an absolute must for Luce and Claire to cover in this week's episode. Get it in your ear holes and/or pulsating neck gills!

25 - The Thing (1982)

Tuesday Sep 19, 2023

Tuesday Sep 19, 2023

Terrifying isolation, monstrous creatures looming up out of the dark, a bearded alcoholic wearing the world's most ludicrous hat -- no, we're not talking about Claire's trip to Burning Man... it's The Thing! John Carpenter's 1982 body horror classic might have divided audiences when it was first released, but Claire and Luce are truly on board. That said, if you get infected by this awful creature, only one of them will save you...

Monday Aug 14, 2023

Luce is on holidays and Claire is at home with the recording gear and NO ONE TO STOP HER! So this week, she's opening the Tell Me When It's Over mailbag with a letter from a listener who wants to hear all about Ghost Ship. Is Claire allowed to review a movie by herself? Is she going to sing another song? Is this week's letter writer just Claire wearing a funny mustache?! Yes, yes, a thousand times YES! Welcome to our first bonus episode from the Loose Cannon tapes (AKA "Tell Me When Lucy Is Back" because someone needs to rein this lady in).

24 - Alien (1979)

Wednesday Aug 02, 2023

Wednesday Aug 02, 2023

(Singing gently) Ellen Ripley... picks up the trace in the room where the Alien's been... what has she seen?
This week, Luce and Claire dig their salivating teeth into Alien - tackling disgusting eggs, suffocating facehuggers, bloody chestbursters and everyone's favourite action hero, Ripley (believe it or not!)
