LISTS: BillChete’s Annual Top 10 Lists (2005-2014)

BillCete Top 10
BillChete
, a well-known horror DJ, infamous horror film critic and former horror podcaster, has been a big influence and inspiration to me as a horror film critic. I have been listening to BillChete’s various podcasts and myriad horror movie reviews since the beginning of Planet Macabre in late 2010. Since that time, I have podcasted—and fought incessantly with—BillChete about horror movies on The Weekly Horror Movie Podcast and Horror Metropolis, the predecessors of this podcast.

Of all the horror film criticism BillChete produces, my favorite work of his has always been his Top 10 of the Year lists, which he has been creating since 2005. For those who don’t know what these lists represent, each year BillChete watches every (or nearly every) horror film release, which means his 10 picks are well-informed and the cream of the crop, as far as he’s concerned. So, I asked him if he’d allow me to feature all his lists here at HorrorMoviePodcast.com, and he agreed. I can personally tell you that I enjoy BillChete’s recommendations 99% of the time, so you’re guaranteed to have some good picks below.

BillChete’s official posting of his OFFICIAL LISTS can be found at Horror On The Go, his official website: Top 10’s 2011-2015 and Top 10’s 2006-2010.

Lastly, thanks to BillChete for allowing us to also post these lists at Horror Movie Podcast.com.

Horror Metropolis Ep. 010: Slasher U

HM 010 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:

In what ended up being the final episode of Horror Metropolis, we took on each other and Dr. Shock’s theme, which was “Slasher U.” Jay of the Dead here, admitting to you up front, that upon revisiting this episode for this re-release, even I must confess that I annoyed myself with how relentless I was while bickering over “The Dorm that Dripped Blood” (1982). So, I just want to apologize and tell you up front, I’m sorry for all the beating of dead horses…

But despite my redundant persistence, Episode 010 is still an excellent show because we also review “The House on Sorority Row” (1983) with special guest LEXI-WISE, a horror-lovin’ gal from Salt Lake City. This final episode is a great one. Thanks for listening.

Horror Metropolis is hosted by Jay of the Dead, along with his co-hosts BillChete, Dr. Shock, Terror Tovey and Wolfman Josh. Continue reading

SHOW NOTES:

In Episode 009 of Horror Metropolis, BillChete chose the theme “Foreign Vampires.” And to help us cover these vamps, Jay of the Dead commissioned a cool horror chick and singer-songwriter from Michigan named COLE SLAUGHTER. First we review a German, action-horror flick called “We Are the Night” (2010), as well as Guillermo del Toro’s feature film directorial debut “Cronos” (1993), an unconventional take on the vampire flick.

This episode is dedicated to our friend, Boss Butcher, vampire slayer — domestic and foreign…
