The Sci-Fi Podcast Ep. 38: Alien Abduction Part 2 – Communion (1989) and Fire in the Sky (1993)

TSFP Alien Abduction Pt 2

Have you ever wondered about the origins of the Alien Abduction sub-genre in Horror cinema? Episode 116 of HORROR MOVIE PODCAST was Part 1 in a crossover with our friends at The Sci-Fi Podcast. On that ep, the HMP hosts and special guest Mattroid, from TSFP, spent some time exploring the theme and reviewed Alien Abduction (2014) as well as Altered (2006). We capped off Part 1 with another excellent interview with filmmaker friend of the show Eduardo Sanchez.

Part 2 of that series is now here! In this episode, Dr. Shock (known as Dave Bowman on TSFP) and Wolfman Josh (known as SpaceWolf) join the crew of The Sci-Fi Podcast to review the creepy Communion (1989) and Fire in the Sky (1993). TSFP utilizes their resident scientist–The Brain–as a sounding board for hypotheses regarding the probability and plausibility of life OUT THERE and that life coming here. You also won’t want to miss Station!’s hilarious review of Communion or the great discussion about Fire in the Sky.

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
