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.

23 - The Fly (1986)

Tuesday Jul 25, 2023

Tuesday Jul 25, 2023

It's the first episode of Tell Me When It's Over's Monsters season, and we're kicking off with one of the more disgusting feats of visual effects in cinema history: David Cronenberg's body horror classic, The Fly. Luce and Claire discuss the curious magnetism of Jeff Goldblum, the very obvious magnetism of Geena Davis and why spitting mucus on food is no way to win a lady. Also Claire has written ANOTHER song, but Luce says it's her best yet!

22 - Hereditary (2018)

Monday Jun 26, 2023

Monday Jun 26, 2023

Hereditary. An absolute no-go movie for Claire and an absolute banger of a film to talk about for horror fans and terrified newcomers alike. This week Luce and Claire talk about their love of Toni Collette, their hatred of mouth sounds and how, if you can't say something nice to your children, it's probably best not to channel your rage through dioramas. 

21 - Poltergeist (1982)

Monday Jun 19, 2023

Monday Jun 19, 2023

This ain't your average horror movie from the '80s, despite the fact it was directed by Tobe 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre' Hooper. It is, in fact, our first 'family' horror flick, and one that Luce has deep nostalgia for! Claire quickly had to throw out any preconceptions while grappling with the whiplash of Jerry Goldsmith's whimsical, warm soundtrack against a guy tearing his own face off. But did she think it was any good? Find out in this week's episode, where the house is DEFINITELY not clean. 

20 - Ring (1998)

Tuesday Jun 13, 2023

Tuesday Jun 13, 2023

Crawling out of your headphones and clawing its raggedy nails into your eardrums, this week we tackle the J-Horror ode to pirated VHS tapes everywhere: Ring. Claire and Luce discuss proper techniques for draining a haunted well in regional Japan, the power of unwashed hair and why the biggest horror of all is copyright crime. You wouldn't steal a car, but you SHOULD listen to this episode...

19 - The Conjuring (2013)

Tuesday Jun 13, 2023

Tuesday Jun 13, 2023

When it comes to paranormal investigations, how important is it for your local ghost hunters to be stone-cold hotties? This week, Luce and Claire dive into the world of chilling terror and steamy actors with The Conjuring (a film that left them deeply divided on ghost lore, but firmly united on Vera Farmiga). 

18 - The Shining (1980)

Monday May 29, 2023

Monday May 29, 2023

After a brief break, Luce and Claire are back from the dead (get it?) with a new sub-genre: GHOSTS! Claire wanted Patrick Swayze, but instead Luce chose an absolutely axe-through-the-door classic, The Shining. This week, we talk hauntings (both real, imagined and whatever poor Shelley Duvall went through), the auteurism of Kubrick and the joy of slowly opening a massive catering tin of fruit cocktail and glugging it out into a bowl. 

17 - Drag Me to Hell (2009)

Monday Mar 27, 2023

Monday Mar 27, 2023

Vomit! Orifices! Talking goats! No, it’s not your hillbilly cousin’s barn wedding, it’s the absolutely BANGING Sam Raimi horror flick, Drag Me to Hell! This week, Claire talks about her love of the snap zoom and Luce makes a case for possibly the greatest movie fight scene EVER — with plenty of gross out comedy in between.

16 - The Omen (1976)

Monday Mar 20, 2023

Monday Mar 20, 2023

What is it with occult films and truly cursed children? This week, Luce and Claire dive into the 1976 film The Omen, reliving some childhood trauma of their own and talking about what makes children (one kid in particular, here's looking at you Damien) really, really terrible. 

Wednesday Mar 15, 2023

Grab your tissues and wipe your noses, it's time to look at another modern horror classic. This week we dig into the turn-of-the-millennium, "did they really wear those jeans" flick that had everyone afraid to go camping, The Blair Witch Project. Luce and Claire talk about the power of viral marketing in the pre-viral days, what it was like to watch a horror movie thinking it was real and what it's like to be almost a quarter of a century late to the cultural zeitgeist. Again. It turns out the TRUE witches were the terrified memories we made along the way.

14 - The Wicker Man (1973)

Tuesday Mar 07, 2023

Tuesday Mar 07, 2023

It's time to keep your appointment with The Wicker Man! This week there's no Nicolas Cage in sight as Luce and Claire break down the original folk horror classic that spawned all the meme-worthy remakes. They talk harvest season, shagging in the barley and the epic hair of Christopher Lee, and Luce even manages to change Claire's mind!
