Shhhh… They’re listening. (Not you guys, but “Them.”) Beware, this is not a secure connection … Therefore, these show notes are written in code … Plus, I can’t type as well with this Pikachu standing on my arm… Welcome to Episode 093 of HORROR MOVIE PODCAST, where we’re Dead Serious About Horror Movies… In this wacky, paranoid Frankensteinian episode, you’ll hear Feature Reviews of Clown (2016) and Carnage Park (2016).
In this episode you’ll also hear Jay of the Dead have a paranoid meltdown about so-called “conspiracies,” such as Pokémon Go, chemtrails and creepy Google Maps images. To help us clown around with these discussions, we introduce a first-time appearance from special guest Riva the Ripper! Poor Wolfman Josh is along for the whole ride, but Dr. Shock was lucky is only implicated in a short segment in this episode. We also bring you a sneak peek review of Rob Zombie’s 31 (2016), courtesy of Kagan Breitenbach, HMP listener from SLC who saw the film at Sundance back in January. And it if that was enough creepy clown talk, we also talk some trash about the upcoming adaptation of Stephen King’s It. Join us (unless you’re already with Them)!
