Episode 173 of War Machine vs. War Horse: The Visit (Burnt Offerings vs. The Skeleton Key)

On this episode we go stay with some old people in a pair of horror films. BURNT OFFERINGS has us hosted by Karen Black, Oliver Reed, and Bette Davis as a family gets the deal of a lifetime with very cheap rent for a huge estate, with the catch being that they have to care for an elderly and extremely private woman in the attic. In the more recent THE SKELETON KEY, Kate Hudson's job as a caregiver sends her to the swamps of Louisiana as John Hurt plays a man who has suffered a stroke... and may be suffering in silence under the watchful eye of his creepy wife. This visit with creepy old folks in creepy old houses has been inspired by fallen director M. Night Shyamalan's new film, THE VISIT.
