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.

13 - The Exorcist (1973)

Monday Feb 27, 2023

Monday Feb 27, 2023

Is The Exorcist the greatest occult film of all time? Was this the ONE horror movie that Lucy was never allowed to watch growing up? And my goodness, has Claire written ANOTHER Broadway song parody to explain the plot of a film she definiteloy has no idea about?! This week, Claire and Luce attempt to answer these questions and more while Reagan patiently hovers near the ceiling. 

Monday Feb 20, 2023

Nobody puts Rosemary’s Baby in the corner! This week, Luce and Claire kick off their season on The Occult with the film that arguably kicked it all off. They talk amazing fashion, under-appreciated haircuts and terrible neighbours… with a little bit of Satan thrown in for good measure.

11 - M3GAN (2022)

Monday Feb 13, 2023

Monday Feb 13, 2023

It's time for a BONUS EPISODE! To celebrate the most ridiculous horror movie to come out in 2022 (we're calling it early), Luce and Claire head to the cinema together to see M3GAN and talk about camp movies, queer horror and the excellent legacy of killer dolls in cinema.

10 - Train to Busan (2016)

Monday Jan 09, 2023

Monday Jan 09, 2023

In a twist this week, Claire picks one of her favourite movies and a zombie flick that Lucy hasn't seen: the sensational Korean film Train to Busan. You want perfectly choreographed fight scenes? Check! You want hunky beefcake role models showing us nuanced interpretations of fatherhood? Bingo! You want a totally unsolicited musical number and thoughts on train safety? We got 'em! Plus Lucy sheds light on why this movie tears your heart right out (but not in the way you expect). Busan!

9 - REC (2007)

Monday Dec 26, 2022

Monday Dec 26, 2022

It's Lucy's turn to choose a movie, and you bet she's picked a scary one this week. REC takes the duo into the harrowing walls of an apartment building filled with a creeping infection...and its residents desperate to escape. How did Claire deal with REC's final 10 minutes in particular? Tune in for your amusement!

8 - 28 Days Later (2002)

Monday Dec 19, 2022

Monday Dec 19, 2022

Exactly how long does it take for society to totally crumble into oblivion after a zombie outbreak? Exactly two fortnights! This week, Claire chooses a harrowing Danny Boyle flick about a misfit band of survivors trying to make their way to safety a little less than a month after an outbreak takes down the population of London. But could it be that there are worse monsters out there than zombies? (Yes. The answer is yes.)
 
 

7 - Rabid (1977)

Monday Dec 12, 2022

Monday Dec 12, 2022

We're carefully continuing our foray into zombie-filled waters with David Cronenberg's early, and influential, Rabid. Does Claire really want to know where the zombies originated from in this particular movie? Does anyone? The answer, is of course, no, because this is Cronenberg. Plus, hear Claire's thoughts on movie surgery scenes in movies!

Monday Dec 05, 2022

After surviving the slashers it's time for a new horror genre: Zombies! For the start of their foray into a terrifying new world of undead monsters, it's Claire's time to pick, and once again she has confused about five movies into one. So while she couldn't pick Richard Ramirez's "From Dusk 'Til Dawn" (is that a movie?) she's gone for the next best thing: the classic that arguably kicked it all off, George Romero's 1968 classic "Night of the Living Dead".

5 - Candyman (1992)

Monday Nov 28, 2022

Monday Nov 28, 2022

It's time to bust out the urban legends. This week, Claire and Lucy dig into the world of the Candyman. Is he a monster (played by Pierce Brosnan) who lives in your toilet? Or is he one of the most iconic horror figures at the heart of a '90s film masterpiece? Either way, by the end of this episode Claire will be saying his name whether she likes it or not (just don't give her a mirror while she's doing it). 

4 - Scream (1996)

Monday Nov 21, 2022

Monday Nov 21, 2022

What's your favourite scary movie? Claire has done a few slasher movies now, so it's time to go full meta with one of the few horror movies she's already seen (?!) -- the 1996 Wes Craven banger, Scream. Lucy is absolutely here for it. Let's talk self-referential horror, fandom and the joy of a Cox-Arquette meetcute.
