We're joined by horror author Christoph Paul as we dig into HELLRAISER and the Lovecraft-inspired short WHEN SUSURRUS STIRS. Mostly Christoph and Ryan make Quincy cry in anguish as they slide HELLRAISER farther and farther up the list until nothing makes sense anymore.
We talk to horror author Max Booth III about KUSO, YOUR DATE IS HERE, THE NIGHT OF SOMETHING STRANGE, and THE NIGHT WATCHMEN. Also featured: Quincy's wife Emily sets the record straight on STIs and toilets.
Writer, podcaster, and Dracula enthusiast Chris Sims joined us to talk about ARMY OF DARKNESS, TASTE THE BLOOD OF DRACULA, and DRACULA A.D. 1972. Also discussed are Thriller, Keanu Reeves' valiant attempts at an English accent, and shady copies of BATMAN: DEAD END.
On this episode, Quincy talks with Betty Rocksteady (author of LIKE JAGGED TEETH and ARACHNOPHILE) about ZYGOTE, LOWLIFE, TALES FROM THE CRYPT: DEMON KNIGHT and HOUNDS OF LOVE. Also discussed is the fact that Quincy's mom clipped a picture of the Cryptkeeper out of the back of his comic books as a kid because it scared him. I had to write about that detail in this blurb because holy shit.
Our pal Leza Cantoral (author of CARTOONS IN THE SUICIDE FOREST and the upcoming THE ICE CREAM GIRL GOSPELS) comes back to talk about one of horror's most disgusting-yet-compelling subgenres -- giallo! We dig into THE BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE, INFERNO, and THE EVIL EYE. Also discussed are Christmas horror movies, Shinsuke Nakamura, and that time Ryan and Quincy wussed out while watching Takashi Miike's IMPRINT in college.
We're joined by Katie Schenkel (author of werewolf comic MOONLIGHTERS) as we talk about one of the best werewolf movies probably ever, GINGER SNAPS. Also discussed are pubescent travails, rituals involving cheesecake, and keeping the children away from Rob Liefeld.
On this episode, we talk about 1985's most underrated gem, THE MUTILATOR, and then later on we talk about MANIAC, SHE KILLS, being trapped in a dentist's office with Lloyd Kaufman, and childhood trauma.
On this episode, we're joined by the delightful Ryan Bradford (author of HORROR BUSINESS) as we dig into ERASERHEAD, MULHOLLAND DRIVE, and most importantly, THE BYE BYE MAN. These movies may seem incongruous, but listen: We got to say the phrase "the Bye Bye Man" a lot after talking about ERASERHEAD and we're living our best lives.
On this episode, we dig into Party Horror stalwart NIGHT OF THE DEMONS and a whole slew of horror shorts like SHALLOW WATER, INNSMOUTH, and PUPPET MAN. We discuss the inescapability of synthwave, Paul Ellering as Super Shredder, and Lovecraftian genitals.
On this episode, we're joined by clandestine wrestling shirt czar Big Boot (of BigBootLegDrop) as we dig into FUNNY GAMES, POOL PARTY MASSACRE, and 2-HEADED SHARK ATTACK. Topics discussed include Brooke Hogan's shruggy acting, meta narratives about violence, and how to ruin a party through the cunning use of white outfits.
