HMP 81 Artb

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.

This is a weekly podcast where each host assigns a horror movie to another one of the hosts, round-robin style.

Episode 015 is dedicated in memory of actor James Farentino, who starred in “Dead & Buried” (1981). Continue reading
