BRIEF 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.
In Episode 007 of Horror Metropolis, Jay of the Dead teams up with special guest KYLE “DR. WALKING DEAD” BISHOP — a literal zombie expert and the author of American Zombie Gothic — to talk about Man-Eating Animals. Jay of the Dead’s horror movie picks for this theme are Tobe Hooper’s “Eaten Alive” (1977) and “Open Water 2: Adrift” (2006). And later in the episode, Jay provides bonus reviews on “Prey” (2007) and a couple of small indie releases.
Note: The DVD give-aways mentioned in this re-released episode expired in 2012.
Horror Metropolis is typically hosted by Jay of the Dead, along with his co-hosts BillChete, Dr. Shock, Terror Tovey and Wolfman Josh. But for this episode, it will just be Jay of the Dead and the highly esteemed Dr. Walking Dead.

Special thanks goes out to singer-songwriter Frederick Ingram for the use of his music for Horror Movie Podcast, which launches on October 25, 2013.
Thank you for listening, and join us again next Friday for another re-posting of Horror Metropolis.
Before releasing episodes of Horror Movie Podcast, I will be posting all the episodes of The Weekly Horror Movie Podcast and Horror Metropolis every Friday. These 26 episodes of The Weekly Horror Movie Podcast were originally posted on the Horror Palace Network between October 30, 2011 and April 22, 2012. The first 14 episodes were hosted by Jay of the Dead, who created the podcast. After Jay stepped down in January 2012, he turned the podcast over to Midnight Corey, who took the reins from Episodes 015 through 026. Also, Corey has graciously agreed to allow me to re-post these episodes here. Thanks, Corey!
All 26 episodes of The Weekly Horror Movie Podcast have now been posted on this site and in iTunes. And we have commenced our posting of all 10 episodes of Horror Metropolis, another podcast that initially aired on the Horror Palace Network between April 29, 2012 and July 2012. Horror Metropolis was also created and led by Jay of the Dead.
On January 31, 2013, Horror Palace stopped hosting all audio podcasts, so until now, neither The Weekly Horror Movie Podcast nor Horror Metropolis was available for download anymore. But Jay of the Dead (the host of the forthcoming Horror Movie Podcast) is very proud of these 36 horror podcasts, and he feels that this is premium horror content that should continue to be available to horror fans everywhere.
Therefore, if you subscribe to Horror Movie Podcast, you’ll receive all the episodes of The Weekly Horror Movie Podcast, Horror Metropolis and in late October, you’ll be able to hear the debut of Horror Movie Podcast.
Much of the timely content and many of the links mentioned during these episodes are no longer active. Therefore, we will only be posting current information and not the defunct links mentioned during these episodes.
We hope you enjoy these horror podcasts as much as we do. Thanks for listening.
