hmp-31-days-halloween

HAPPY OCTOBER, HORROR FANS! Just as we did last year, your Horror Movie Podcast hosts, Jay of the Dead, Wolfman Josh, and Dr. Shock (okay, mostly Dr. Shock), are bringing you 31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN with daily written reviews right here at HorrorMoviePodcast.com! We’ll also be posting one new podcast per week during the month of October, including our 100th episode of HMP, in which we’ll be asking for your voicemails to play on the show and giving away lots of creepy prizes to thank you for coming on this journey with us. We’d love for you to join us in our 31 Days of Halloween adventure by posting your October watch-lists here in the comments and leaving your reviews and recommendations for the films that you’ve been watching each day.
AND NOW, IT BEGINS…

orcakillerwhaleEditor’s note: Dave “Dr. Shock” Becker is a host on Horror Movie Podcast and the Land of the Creeps horror podcast. He is also the mastermind behind DVDInfatuation.com, a movie review blog where he is watching and posting one review every day until he reaches at least 2,500 movie reviews. Follow Doc on Twitter: @DVDinfatuation.


The opening 10 minutes or so of 1977’s “Orca” are exceptional, and get the movie off to a great start. Following the credits, we meet the title creatures (two of them, to be exact), who seem to be enjoying each other’s company as they swim along. While this is happening, researcher Dr. Rachel Bedford (Charlotte Rampling), in full scuba gear, is underwater collecting samples. Suddenly, a great white shark appears, causing her to hide.

Captain Nolan (Richard Harris) and the crew of his fishing boat: Novak (Keenan Wynn), Annie (Bo Derek) and Paul (Peter Hooten); spot the shark’s dorsal fin jutting out of the water, and rush forward to capture it (an aquarium will pay them top dollar for a live shark). Dr. Bedford’s assistant Ken (Robert Carradine), who was waiting in a raft for her to return, warns Captain Nolan (armed with a spear gun) that there’s a diver down below. Continue reading
