31 Days of Halloween — Day 25: Celebrating Horror Movie Podcast’s Two-Year Anniversary — by Jay of the Dead

2 Years of HMP - Old Logo

Jay of the Dead here. Today is October 25, 2015, which is exactly two years since the launch of Horror Movie Podcast. On Friday, October 25, 2013, we released our epic debut episode titled Horror Movie Podcast Ep. 001: The Horror Genre and Our Top 10 Favorite Horror Movies. (It is a must-listen episode, if you haven’t heard it yet.) At that time, HMP only had three hosts: Jay of the Dead, Wolfman Josh and Dr. Walking Dead Kyle Bishop.

Dr. Shock had not rejoined us yet. I say “rejoined” because HMP is the third (and final) incarnation of a Jay of the Dead horror podcast. Many of our listeners have gathered sometime during the course of the past two years, so if you haven’t heard how Horror Movie Podcast came to be, I will give you the history below. Continue reading

Horror Movie Podcast Ep. 005: Bad Santas, Freaky Phone Calls and Klaus Kinski

HMP Sidebar Christmas 2013Merry Christmas (and Happy New Year!) from your hosts of Horror Movie Podcast! Though we had much grander plans to review several more films for this Christmas-themed episode, your hosts Jay of the Dead, Wolfman Josh and Dr. Shock still managed to produce a nice, 3-hour Christmas horror hodge-podge with all three of us recording together simultaneously for almost the entire duration of the episode. Our feature reviews for this show are “Black Christmas” (1974) and “Silent Night, Deadly Night” (1984).

We’ve even thrown in a couple of Mini Reviews of some new 2013 flicks, such as “Here Comes the Devil” and “The Last Days on Mars.” Also, thanks to an e-mail from Josh Miner, we list off several recommendations of horror flicks that are currently streaming on Netflix Watch Instantly! So, even though we didn’t get to cover everything we had hoped to review for you, we still think you’ll really enjoy this episode. Continue reading
