We finally encounter the Pale Man. Ophelia uses her five-finger discount. The rebels emerge with extra Pedro Points. All of this and more, as we conclude our review of Guillermo del Toro’s “Pan’s Labyrinth”.
All caught up and ready for more? As a Patreon Applauder, you get access to high quality unrated episodes, blog archives, and that little bit of satisfaction in knowing you’re helping us grow that amazing shock value into something much larger.
We’ll be back with Episode 4 Part 1 in only one week! Who are we, *Santa?

Ophelia continues her rebel girl ways, following the Fawn’s direction into some incredibly questionable, if not fantastic, scenarios.
Vomiting toxic frogs? Cool. Amputations? Yes please. Finding out Pedro isn’t married? Definite points, Del Toro.
We’re only two thirds of the way through, so stick with us until December 4th for the conclusion of our review of this immensely dark and entertaining film.
We relentlessly dive into this macabre and surreal film by Spanish director, Guillermo del Toro. Where are you going? Wait, we’re still funny!
Are you ready for ol’ turkey hands? Well, we won’t get there quite yet, but we wanted to give you something to listen to if you still perform the ancient art of Black Friday shopping.
Join us as we discuss our nerd ignorance in foreign cinema, rant about Ophelia’s need for a responsibilibuddy, gush on Doug Jones as the Fawn, and lead into Part 2, where creepy Herculean feats of courage will guide us into encounters with del Toro’s fantastic beasts of a different anthology.
Ready for the scary stuff? We’ll be back on 11/20/18 with Part 2!
We conclude our review of Tim Burton’s “Batman Returns”, including (mostly) everything from the lighting of Gotham’s Christmas tree to the final march of the Penguin.
Cat got your tongue-in-cheek humor? We’ll keep milking our Batman puns right to the very end. We’ll even throw in a horrible Christopher Walken impression and a Rocket Man parody, just to keep it lively.
Want more shock value in the future? Part 1 of Episode 3 releases in just one week, 11/20! Yes, we’re going weekly all the way through the holidays, come snow or creepy circus.
From those of us at Shocked & Applaud, thank you for patroning the peculiar!
Part 3 of our review of Tim Burton’s “Batman Returns” releases tomorrow, 11/13!
If you haven’t already, make sure you’re caught up on parts 1 and 2, available through podcast.shockedandapplaud.com.
We’ve already received great feedback and can’t wait to add your tips to future recordings. Also, we’ll be moving to a weekly format starting November 20th, just in time for you to dredge the beginning of Thanksgiving weekend.
Mmmmm … dark meat … Batman’s favorite part of the turkey.
In episode two part two, we get cat scratch fever for our review of the second act of Tim Burton’s “Batman Returns”.
Snoot biting mayoral candidates? We nose them. Salvation by kitty litter? We has it. Keaton brooding over News coverage? It wouldn’t be Batman without bad bro brooding!
Come along with us from the introduction of the Penguin to the public, to the Gotham Christmas tree lighting, by means of a falling Ice Queen’s cold, dead body. Super sick!
Want more? Wheh, wheh, wheh! Sorry, bad penguin impressions … We’ll be back November 13 with part 3!
In Episode 2 Part 1, we take a deep dive into the darkness with our film review of Tim Burton’s “Batman Returns”.
In almost a self-sacrificing length of time, we’ll batarang you through every emo-glittered tapestry, up to Selena’s Bad Fur Day. Trust us, she doesn’t handle it well.
Want more? Purrrfect. We’ll be back October 30th with Part 2!
Hey girl, get caught up! If you haven’t yet heard Episode 1, then here’s our film review and hunt down of factoids. Join us for dinner and dress-up as we tear into the first act of Kevin Smith’s “Tusk”!
We invite you to waltz into the life of Wallace, a shock-podder with straight up character fatigue, as he struts his statehood up north to investigate the whereabouts of the mysterious one-legged “Kill Bill Kid”.
Will Wallace find his own voice or lose it in your iTunes Shuffle? Play on, ad-free, on us! Then, head over to Patreon to help us make up the difference.
Remember to subscribe for future episodes, because we’re venturing ever further into the twisted minds of mass media, and who knows where we’ll go next?
Thank you for patroning the peculiar!
Thankfully, we held back the barf long enough to continue reviewing this part of the film. Here’s Part 2 of Episode 1, Kevin Smith’s “Tusk”.
Everyone has their “butterfly” moment when they find their whole life changed. For Wallace, butterflies can hardly describe the transition he has been undergoing.
Do you have a spirit animal, dear Applauder? Well, here’s to a healthy amount of restraint in forcing others to endure your whiskered beast inside.
This episode has references to on-screen acts of a sexual nature. And you should absolutely feel bad if those scenes do anything for you except gross you the bleep out.
Look at you! You survived our first full episode in three parts. All things considered, we thought you would have forgotten about us and all the smarts we have to share. Let our third act smackdown review commence in Episode 1 Part 3, Kevin Smith’s “Tusk”!
If you’re not lost at sea, join us for Wallace’s rescue … sort of … with a little help from his friends. But before then, you’ll have to endure scenes of Wallace’s pre-trauma past, a final stop to meet the Yoga Hosers, and a boss battle to end all boss battles.
Endure the punishment, Applauder! Your reward is your life.
