It’s time to dive into the bargain bin with us this week on HORROR MOVIE PODCAST, where we’re Dead Serious About Horror Movies… In Episode 088, Jay of the Dead, Dr. Shock and Wolfman Josh bring you another hodge-podged, Frankensteinian episode to discuss some of their favorite “blind buys” from gas stations and video stores around the country, often based on outlandish movie titles or cover art. Jay also takes this opportunity to float a new term that he refers to as “Basement Horror.”
Wolfman Josh also welcomes filmmaker Nicholas Peterson to the podcast to explore the evolution of a working filmmaker’s career and talk about his new animated horror short Sticky Fingers, which he is currently promoting on Kickstarter.
Finally, Jay of the Dead adds his take on Green Room (2016), for a spoiler-filled review with the Wolfman. Josh has previously released a non-spoiler podcast review of the film with guest Kill Bill Kill in HMP Episode 81.
