Episode 041 is another horror-themed episode of HORROR MOVIE PODCAST, where we’re dead serious about horror movies… This week we’re exploring Dr. Shock’s theme which is WHEN SCIENCE GOES TOO FAR! (Thunder clapping sounds here)
Even though this episode only has two in-depth Feature Reviews, namely Altered States (1980) and The Fly (1986), we still have other discussions relating to our theme that we think you’ll enjoy. And of course, we reference many films during the course of the episode.
And as excited as we are about this theme, we are even more excited to have the honor to introduce writer, musician and science fiction / horror aficionado Matt Daniels (aka “Mattroid” aka “Gary the Unicorn”), who is a Masterful guest!
