In Episode 025 of HORROR MOVIE PODCAST, where we’re Dead Serious About Horror Movies, Jay of the Dead and Dr. Shock take on another of our monster Frankensteinian episodes to discuss some Lesser-Loved ’80s Horror Movies, including obscurities like a demonic Beastly Freak flick called Rawhead Rex (1987) and Slime City (1988) and Street Trash (1987), as well as the infamous and controversial April Fool’s Day (1986). Doc and Jay also discuss also horror-related minutiae, such as our favorite decade for horror. Vote on your preference below:
