Sorry, Jack. Josh isn’t back. At least for this episode of HORROR MOVIE PODCAST. But HMP good guys Jay of the Dead and Dave “Dr. Shock” Becker are here to continue our Halloween season with Part 2 of our CHILD’S PLAY FRANCHISE REVIEW.

Just as we’ve done with the Halloween films back in October 2014, the Friday the 13th films back in February of 2015, and the Scream films and the Nightmare on Elm Street films back in the Fall of 2015, we’re giving you in-depth analysis of the entire Chucky franchise, all seven films, including the new release Cult of Chucky (2017). This time, Jay and Dave take on Child’s Play 2 (1990) and Child’s Play 3 (1991).

31 Days of Halloween — Day 3: Killbillies (2015) — by Dr. Shock

31 Days of Halloween - Killbillies 2015

Editor’s note: Dave “Dr. Shock” Becker is a host on Horror Movie Podcast, Universal Monsters Cast and Land of the Creeps horror podcasts. 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.


There are certain preconceptions that cannot be avoided when you hear a title like “Killbillies.” I know, because I had them myself. But take everything that popped into your head when you first read that title and throw it out the window.

For one, Killbillies is not a comedy. It is a deadly serious horror film.

Second, it is not set in Wrong Turn country, nor does it feature anyone who lives in the same neighborhood as the yokels from Deliverance. Killbillies is set in Slovenia. That’s right — Slovenia.

And if some sources on the Internet are to be believed, it is the very first feature-length horror film ever to emerge from that Central European Republic.

Horror Movie Podcast Ep. 109: Split (2017) and The Bye Bye Man (2017) and The Best Damn 2017 Horror Preview on the Internet

HMP-109-2017-Horror-Preview-Art

Happy 2017! We usually at least feign humility on HORROR MOVIE PODCAST, but this four-hour and thirty minute episode has to be The Best Damn 2017 Horror Preview on the Internet. Or at least the most thorough. Damn right!

New listeners may find this particular episode to be quite unusual because we spend much of the time simply talking about release titles and dates, rather than reviewing movies, but there is also plenty of discussion about our most anticipated upcoming films when Jay of the Dead, Dr. Shock, and Wolfman Josh begin with the first Friday in January and discuss just about every known horror release, week by week, for 2017.

Afterward, Jay and Wolfman bring you one of their famous two-handers with a review of M. Night Shyamalan’s Split (2017), including a separate spoiler-section. Wolfman Josh also brings you a feature review of Stacy Title’s The Bye Bye Man (2017) and reports on whether Ti West’s In the Valley of Violence (2016) is a horror movie. And it wouldn’t be HMP if Jay of the Dead didn’t do a little rabble-rousing… Prepare to be up in arms! Continue reading
