You’re listening to HORROR MOVIE PODCAST, where we’re Dead Serious About Horror Movies… This is Episode 081, a Frankensteinian show, where we bring you a manic mix of horror-related topics and reviews. In this episode, Jay of the Dead unveils his very controversial, but very bold, new approach to determining whether a film is a horror movie by assessing its tone (T) and assignment (A). Hence, “Jay’s Horror T&A.” (It’s the best I could come up with so far; please help with a better, catchier title.) We also bring you some recent highlights from horror news, as well as several mini reviews of 2015 and 2016 horror films. Join us!
