Happy Halloween, Horror Fans! Wolfman Josh here. Welcome to our 31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN! Why not 31 Days of Horror? Well, for one thing, here at Horror Movie Podcast, Horror is happening 365 days a year. Count on that. We’re dead serious about horror movies and don’t you forget it.
Also, speaking for myself, I’ve always seen the entire month of October as Halloween. It’s a time for gathering the harvest from my small garden, enjoying the changing leaves in the mountains near my home, roasting pumpkins seeds, drinking apple cider, brisk Autumn walks, lots of parties with friends and family and A COMPLETE AND TOTAL DEDICATION to scary movies. This is also an especially important time of year for me as a horror fan because it is the only time I can get my significant other to watch anything even close to resembling a horror movie with me. And in my house, the only movies that go in the BluRay player the entire month of October are those suited for the Halloween season. Those are the rules.
And so each day, for the entire month of October, one of your hosts at Horror Movie Podcast will bring you a written review of what we’re watching this Halloween. And that’s really just the beginning …
We want you to return the favor. As those of you who frequent the comment boards already know, we’re all about community here at Horror Movie Podcast and we want to hear what you’re up to too. So, please share your reviews along with us each day in the comments of our posts. Give us your recommendations and tell us what to avoid. Let’s all be here for one another as we navigate one of the best times of the year to be fans of horror cinema by bringing our best picks to the table to share with everyone else.
To kick things off, it’s Dave “Dr. Shock” Becker, our beloved co-host and the insanely prolific film critic behind DVDInfatuation.com, where he’s writing a movie review every day until he reaches at least 2,500. Today you’re the lucky recipient of that writing and if you’ve never checked out DVD Infatuation before, you’ll see what you’ve been missing.
For Day 1 of our 31 Days of Halloween, October 1, 2015, Dr. Shock brings us his review of Wes Craven’s “The People Under the Stairs” (1991). After the jump!
