About Us

What Doesn't Kill You (Only Almost Kills You) is hosted by Saoli Nguyen and Darlena Chiem, two humble-ish filmmakers who love horror movies. Well, Saoli loves horror movies. Darlena is a little weenie who has nightmares about them. One thing we both agree on is that horror movie villains (and plot contrivances) must be stopped. Whether it's a slasher flick or something more paranormal, we take it upon ourselves to figure out how to survive SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO. You're very welcome. Every two weeks, we watch a different horror movie (the crazier, the better) and b-storm survival strategies with the fervor of people who've actually had to escape from a cannibal horde. Other than that, there aren't many rules to this. Enjoy!

EThe 1980s are out for our blood and we wouldn't have it any other way. Join us as we sink our teeth into Joel Schumacher's teen vampire classic, "The Lost Boys".

Episode 17: The Lost Boys

Episode 16: Hereditary

EBy this point, everyone who wanted to see "Hereditary" in theatres should have seen it by now. HINT HINT. And now that you've seen it, join us for this episode in which we attempt to figure out what the eff happened in this creepy-ass movie. Which we liked! Also, sorry for the insane amount of street noise. Loud church music and Brooklyn traffic were in full bloom in our neighborhood.

Episode 15: A Quiet Place

Episode 14: Grabbers

E"Grabbers" is a 2012 Irish horror-comedy about a small town that needs to stay drunk in order to fend off parasitic alien predators. It makes total sense in context, which is more than we can say for our lightweight disastrous recording session for this episode. Three words: DAD. MOTORCYCLE. GANG.

Episode 14: Grabbers

Episode 13: Ghostwatch

ELucky number 13 is all about "Ghostwatch", a BBC "news" special that aired on Halloween night, 1992. It's eerie, highly entertaining, and surprisingly tough to put into words. But, boy do we try. Also, Saoli would like to note that a) Peter Jennings died in 2005 and b) this is pretty indicative of when she last watched TV news.

Episode 12: An American Werewolf in Jack Frost

ETo make up for our longest absence yet, us gals at WDKY are coming back in full force with a special double feature episode. We watched one classic and one "classic", both of which are horror comedies that have developed cult followings, each for entirely different reasons. Saoli and Darlena are kicking off 2018 with John Landis's beloved 1981 film, "An American Werewolf in London". And also "Jack Frost". Welcome back to the coven!

EYour Halloween just got a little Halloween-er! In this special episode of WDKY, we talk about "The Shining" and how it's never too late to get help for a drinking problem. Well...until you try tomurder your family with an ax. That's probably a good stopping point.

Episode 11: Swan Lake (1981)

EFor Saoli's HalloweenMonth2k17 pick, we watched the extremely rape-y 1981 Japanese anime version of "Swan Lake". It's not so much a cute little romp as it is an allegory for sexual assault and the everlasting oppression of women. We also talk about Harvey Weinstein and the powerful sexual predator who's currently running the U.S. into the ground. And the talking squirrels! Yay!

Episode 10.5

Hold on to your pants. Saoli'ssuppressed childhood trauma is about to be foolishly unearthed by our upcoming movie pick. This creepy Japanese anime (yeah, we went there!) has everything: a captive princess, an evil sorcerer, and talking squirrels who fall in love. It's horrific.
