  1. Man, it felt good to hear Billchete’s voice again.

    Though, I have to be contradictory here, ABCs of Death was awful. Of the 26 segments I enjoyed four or five of them. Like everyone else in the universe, I thought D is for Dogfight was by far the strongest piece. Of course I’ll still watch the sequel, but beyond the first being a novelty, it didn’t do anything for me.

    V/H/S 2 was a much better piece than its original, but it certainly didn’t hurt to have Eisner and Sanchez as two of the directors. I actually found myself talking about it with as many people I could get to listen to me for a good week after seeing it.

    Anyway, great show as always, guys. I hope Dr. Shock gets better soon!

  2. mr billchete i have missed your shows unconditionally. as you know i bought all of your recommendations you have never failed me. i have 11 to buy the only one i had was evil dead a great piece of horror. it was a treat to hear you again please come back to us you are my horror hero.

  3. Hey guys, what an incredible episode and great runtime. Great to hear Billchete on the show and i love the conflicting views you all had on the various films. I changed who i agreed with at least 100 times as film after film review came out and now have a huge wish-list of horror. I did agree with Bill in regards to the Texas Chain Saw 3d and find it hard to figure out why some fans can be so irate regarding the “cuz” line and the timeframe issue. I just think that the writers came up with the facetime phone scene, which of coarse wouldn’t fit in an 80’s or 90’s era movie and so rather than drop it made it rather sketchy to the year the original event took place, i can live with that

    Regarding the texas chainsaw original i came across something that Christopher Garetano who made the documentary “horror business” is trying to put together. Its called “South Texas blues” and is a docudrama about the film shoot of TCM. looks pretty interesting and wondered if you knew of it.

    Hope Dr S gets well soon and looking forward to the next show

  4. This was a great episode guys! I loved the return of Billchete even if he pissed me off (as usual) with his picks and his bashing of my favorite movies of the year lol. I’m really excited to see what he has planned. I have been listening to your back catalog of episodes that you have here on this site and I have grown very fond of all of you and have missed Midnight Corey, Billchete, and Terror Tovey a great deal. If you don’t mind me asking, why is that you keep changing formats? All of your different shows have been great and they all bring something new and different, I’m just curious as to why the change?

    Moving on to the movie reviews, Jay I agree with you 100% about You’re Next. I thought it was a really fun movie with just the right amount of twists to keep it interesting. I do side with Billchete on that You’re Next and The Strangers shouldn’t be compared. Even though the home invasion theme is shared, the tone of the two movies is just so different that I don’t think it’s fair to compare them. Speaking of home invasion, have you seen Them? It’s a 2006 French movie that is scary as all hell and one of my favorite home invasion movies so far.

    Texas Chainsaw was just ok. It was somewhat fun, mindless fun, some eye candy, and not much else. The timeline didn’t bother me really, but what did really irked me was that one line “Do your thing cuz”. Why? Just why?! Oh and did anyone notice that the slutty friend (Tania Raymonde) is the little nerd girl from Malcom in the Middle? When I found out it blew my mind a little.

    Ok ok ok just one more thing to get off my chest and I’ll be done. Why does Evil Dead have to be the same movie as The Evil Dead? Just like Maniac, I believe that they are two completely different experiences that can stand on their own. Oh and Maniac, WOW! Just WOW!

    Top 5 of the year:

    The Conjuring
    Evil Dead
    You’re Next
    American Mary

    Biggest Disappointments:
    Texas Chainsaw 3D

    Honorable Mentions:

    Guilty Pleasure:
    Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters

  5. What a great episode. As mentioned previously I am quite new to the world of Horror Movie podcasting but have been playing catch up over the last few weeks. Until this episode I had only heard the ‘legend’ of BillChete and now I see why he has such a strong fan base. What a great addition to this podcast.

    It now seems like I have dozens of movies to watch so I won’t waste too much time on here.

    Thanks again for a great episode. I look forward to your Jan 17th release.

  6. Shockingly I agree with BillChete on Maniac. I liked it better than he did but the POV sort of takes away some of the suspense. I also agree on The Conjuring, it’s just okay. But… Wow, I understand Josh liking it being a filmmaker. But how in the world can Bill love ABCs of Death. That heaping pile of craptacular short films is pathetic. Ti West’s M entry was the worst! I enjoyed (like the other listener) D is for Dogfight the most and maybe would give average or a little better ratings to 9 others but that leaves 16 bad to terrible entries. I could scour the Internet and find a better A-Z collection of films that are free to watch.

  7. Josh us making me mad right now with all this The Marked Ones is great because its a superhero origin story and he’s never seen that. My friend, Carrie was without a doubt setup just like that and that’s why it’s better than you give it credit.

  8. Dark Skies was very atmospheric and creepy. I probably would have been at an 8 but that last thing with the kid was irritating! It got all Insidious. Why do films have to do that crap!

  9. Perused my local Wal-Mart $5 bin:

    1) Rosemary’s Baby
    2) The Strangers
    3) 20 horror movie pack featuring The Ginger Dead Man 3!

  10. I noticed that I was not able to go to Bill Chete’s top 10 lists. Could you please post an active link to his top 10 lists?
