Horror Metropolis Ep. 003: Silent Horror

HM 003 ArtworkBRIEF EXPLANATION: This podcast is not the Horror Movie Podcast for which this site and feed are dedicated. Horror Movie Podcast is slated to release Episode 001 on October 25, 2013. You can read the full explanation and the background on the re-release of Horror Metropolis (and of The Weekly Horror Movie Podcast) at the bottom of the show notes for this episode.

SHOW NOTES:

Modesty be damned — this might be the most interesting podcast you’ll ever hear about silent-era horror films. Seriously, it has to be in the Top 5 — a must-listen episode. Thanks to Dr. Shock, in Episode 003 we review F.W. Murnau’s “Nosferatu” (1922) and a Scandinavian silent film called “Häxan” (aka “Häxan: Witchcraft Through the Ages”), also from 1922. And even though BillChete is absent for this episode, we’re proud to bring you special guest WOLFMAN JOSH, the co-director of a film called “Cleanflix,” and a co-host with Jay of the Dead on Movie Podcast Weekly. Horror Metropolis is hosted by Jay of the Dead, along with his co-hosts BillChete, Dr. Shock and Terror Tovey. Continue reading

HM 002 ArtworkBRIEF EXPLANATION: This podcast is not the Horror Movie Podcast for which this site and feed are dedicated. Horror Movie Podcast is slated to release Episode 001 on October 25, 2013. You can read the full explanation and the background on the re-release of Horror Metropolis (and of The Weekly Horror Movie Podcast) at the bottom of the show notes for this episode.

SHOW NOTES:

For Horror Metropolis, Episode 002, BillChete has chosen the theme of “Freaky Mannequins.” Unfortunately, BillChete himself and Terror Tovey were unable to record this episode with us, but we’re happy to welcome Horror Metropolis’s first special guest HADDONFIELD HATCHET of the Land of the Creeps horror movie podcast. And for those who are familiar with Land of the Creeps and GregaMortis… Jay of the Dead asks who is a bigger fan of John Carpenter’s “Halloween” (1978) — Haddonfield Hatchet or GregaMortis?

Also during this episode, you’ll get an unexpected mini review of “The Cabin in the Woods.” We also review a spoof of Hammer horror called “Carry on Screaming” (1966) and a memorable horror flick from 1979 called “Tourist Trap” (1979). And obviously, since this episode is a re-release, the DVD give-away mentioned during this show has long since expired. Horror Metropolis is hosted by Jay of the Dead, along with his co-hosts BillChete, Dr. Shock and Terror Tovey. Continue reading

The Weekly Horror Movie Podcast Ep. 026: The End

TWHMP 026 ArtworkBRIEF EXPLANATION: This podcast is not the Horror Movie Podcast for which this site and feed are dedicated. Horror Movie Podcast is slated to release Episode 001 on October 25, 2013. You can read the full explanation and the background on the re-release of The Weekly Horror Movie Podcast (and of Horror Metropolis) at the bottom of the show notes for this episode.

SHOW NOTES:

Episode 026 is the bittersweet episode when The Weekly Horror Movie Podcast came to an unexpected end. Though the show had become the No. 1 audio podcast on the Horror Palace Network, it had also become too big and too unwieldy for the hosts’ schedules… So, after 26 episodes and 88 unforgettable horror movie reviews, The Weekly Horror Movie Podcast comes to an end.

But this sad news also brought the announcement of two new horror movie podcasts: Horror Metropolis: The Capital City of Horror Movie Podcasting — and — The Electric Chair, Midnight Corey’s new guest interview-based solo-cast project. Dr. Shock also announces that he’ll be joining Land of the Creeps as an official co-host.

And after these big announcements, Midnight Corey sends us off with some outtakes and bloopers from the episodes where he was at the helm. We hope you enjoy this bittersweet send-off and join us again next Friday for Episode 001 of Horror Metropolis!

You can read the full explanation and the background on the re-release of The Weekly Horror Movie Podcast (and of Horror Metropolis) at the bottom of the show notes for this episode.

SHOW NOTES:

For this truly excellent show, Episode 025, we bring you a Frankensteined amalgam of three EPIC reviews that we’ve recorded on different nights — weeks apart — with the plan in mind that we’d assemble these into this Monster show (much like you heard us do with Episodes 013 and 014).

You’ll hear reviews of “The Grapes of Death” (1978), “The Uninvited” (2009) — and last but not least — a knock-down, drag-out discussion of “Grave Encounters” (2011) and the Found Footage convention, with special guest host Evil Mike Maryman of the Evil Episodes podcast, which covers TV and Web-based horror.

The Weekly Horror Movie Podcast is hosted by Midnight Corey, along with his co-hosts BillChete, Dr. Shock and Terror Tovey. TWHMP is a weekly show where each host assigns a horror movie to another one of the hosts, round-robin style. Continue reading
