The Meg is a run-of-the-mill, but well-executed monster movie starring Jason Statham and the sovereign nation of China. Jason Statham plays Jonus Taylor, an expert rescue diver who is retired after a tragically failed rescue, which Jonus blames on a giant fish or something (but no one believes him).

As it turns out, The Devil’s Doorway is not terribly spooky, it’s not even spoopy, it just kind of is. If you want to watch The Devil's Doorway consider renting or purchasing the movie through this link to help us support the podcast. This movie focuses on two priests who are sent to investigate some reports of miracles that were made by those that inhabit this particular Magdalene Laundry, and they end up finding a demonically impregnated young woman who is imprisoned by some pretty questionable nuns.
