9. Crypt Walkin' (pt. 1)- Tales from the Hood (1995)
2021 Feb 261h 6m
Sometimes, the scariest stories are the ones closest to home...Join your hosts Malcolm and Brandon as they discuss the first story in Tales from the Hood (1995), directed by Rusty Cundieff and written by Rusty Cundieff and Darin Scott. Join us as we dissect each story within the first anthology of the "Tales from the Hood" series. Part one discusses the first story about police brutality and it's prevalence today. Later parts will be released in future episodes. Tales from the Hood (1995) plays a significant role in cinema history, highlighting the real-life struggles of the African-American community in everyday situations. The director, writers, and cast are predominately African-American and dived into a genre that still lacked African-American representation in the 90's.

Are you really who you think you are? If necessary, would you be able to look at a mirrored reflection of yourself and conquer the evils within you? Join your hosts Malcolm and Brandon as they review one of their favorite horror films of all-time, Us (2019). In celebration of Black History Month, Survive! The Podcast highlights and celebrates Black actors, directors, and movie writers. Us (2019) was written and directed by Jordan Peele.

7. Deadhead? - Night of The Living Dead (1968)
2021 Feb 131h 19m 35s
Ghouls? Monsters? Sleepwalkers? We all know what they are but, our main characters don't. Join your hosts Malcolm and Brandon as they continue their celebration of Black History Month with another cult classic film featuring an African-American protagonist and hero (Duane Jones). Jones was the first African-American actor to star in a horror film and received the role during a time where casting a Black main character was considered "controversial". Night of The Living Dead (1968) was written and directed by George A. Romero, with writing assistance from John Russo. Can you survive a night with the undead? Let us know via Facebook @thesurvivepodcast or on Instagram @thesurvivepodcast.
6. Hide N' Seek- The People Under The Stairs (1991)
2021 Feb 061h 19m 21s
Do you ever get that feeling that something else is in your house other than you? Could there be mice crawling through your walls? Maybe it's just an old house. Or, maybe there's people living within the walls. Join your hosts Malcolm and Brandon as they kick-off the Survive! The Podcast Black History Month celebration by reviewing "The People Under The Stairs" (1991), written and directed by Wes Craven. This movie's significance in Hollywood not only has an African-American lead character, but highlights the social and economical disparities within the African-American communities caused by corporate greed that is still relevant to this day.
