The Weekly Horror Movie Podcast Ep. 009: The Rot Has Set In

TWHMP 009 ArtworkBRIEF EXPLANATION: This podcast is not the Horror Movie Podcast for which this site and feed are dedicated. Horror Movie Podcast is slated to release Episode 001 on October 25, 2013. You can read the full explanation and the background on the re-release of The Weekly Horror Movie Podcast (and of Horror Metropolis) at the bottom of the show notes for this episode.


Welcome to Episode 009 of The Weekly Horror Movie Podcast, hosted by Jay of the Dead, BillChete, Dr. Shock, Terror Tovey and Midnight Corey. This is a weekly podcast where each host assigns a horror movie to another one of the hosts, round-robin style, with one host sitting out each week. Dr. Shock is off this week, but he’ll be back with us again next time.

During this memorable episode you’ll hear an epic discussion about CGI versus practical effects. You’ll also get to hear BillChete’s thoughts on “Home Movie.” And we announce the Blu-ray winners (and naturally, the prizes were mailed to said winners when this episode was initially released on December 25, 2011).

Thank you for listening, and join us again next Friday for another re-posting of The Weekly Horror Movie Podcast.

Before releasing episodes of Horror Movie Podcast, I will be posting all the episodes of The Weekly Horror Movie Podcast and Horror Metropolis every Friday. These 26 episodes of The Weekly Horror Movie Podcast were originally posted on the Horror Palace Network between October 30, 2011 and April 22, 2012. The first 14 episodes were hosted by Jay of the Dead, who created the podcast. After Jay stepped down in January 2012, he turned the podcast over to Midnight Corey, who took the reins from Episodes 015 through 026. Also, Corey has graciously agreed to allow me to re-post these episodes here. Thanks, Corey!

All 26 episodes of The Weekly Horror Movie Podcast will be posted on this site and in iTunes every Friday. The following week after Episode 026 is posted, we will commence posting all 10 episodes of Horror Metropolis, another podcast that initially aired on the Horror Palace Network between April 29, 2012 and July 2012. Horror Metropolis was also created and led by Jay of the Dead.

On January 31, 2013, Horror Palace stopped hosting all audio podcasts, so until now, neither The Weekly Horror Movie Podcast nor Horror Metropolis was available for download anymore. But Jay of the Dead (the host of the forthcoming Horror Movie Podcast) is very proud of these 36 horror podcasts, and he feels that this is premium horror content that should continue to be available to horror fans everywhere.

Therefore, if you subscribe to Horror Movie Podcast, you’ll receive all the episodes of The Weekly Horror Movie Podcast, Horror Metropolis and in late October, you’ll be able to hear the debut of Horror Movie Podcast.

Much of the timely content and many of the links mentioned during these episodes are no longer active. Therefore, we will only be posting current information and not the defunct links mentioned during these episodes.

We hope you enjoy these horror podcasts as much as we do. Thanks for listening.

Jay of the Dead
