Horror Metropolis Ep. 005: Houses of Horror

HM 005 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 Horror Metropolis (and of The Weekly Horror Movie Podcast) at the bottom of the show notes for this episode.


Episode 005 of Horror Metropolis is one of the very best of its short run of 10 episodes. You’ve got the classic crew — Jay of the Dead, BillChete, Dr. Shock and Terror Tovey — battling as usual. In this episode we examine Terror Tovey’s theme, HOUSES OF HORROR, by reviewing Uwe Boll’s “House of the Dead” and Ti West’s “The House of the Devil.”

In Episode 005, we also announce the addition of a brand-new official co-host — Wolfman Josh, whom you first heard during Episode 003. At the end of this show, you’ll hear Jay of the Dead discuss a Meet-Up in 2013 at the Run for Your Life Zombie 5k in Atlanta… Unfortunately, that never came together and did not pan out, but Jay still plans to put something like this together — maybe in 2014! Cross your fingers…

Horror Metropolis is hosted by Jay of the Dead, along with his co-hosts BillChete, Dr. Shock and Terror Tovey.

Special thanks goes out to singer-songwriter Frederick Ingram for the use of his music for Horror Movie Podcast, which launches on October 25, 2013.

Thank you for listening, and join us again next Friday for another re-posting of Horror Metropolis.

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 have now been posted on this site and in iTunes. And we have commenced our posting of 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.

One thought on “Horror Metropolis Ep. 005: Houses of Horror

  1. Huh! BillChette was insufferable in this episode he was so narrow-minded and totally ignored the production prowess of perfecting the late 70s early 80s look and feel in The House of the Devil (2009).

    Don’t get me wrong I like the guy but he was so annoying with all the hate for methodical/psychological/slow burning horror movies. It’s a good thing he’s more open to other breeds of horror nowadays.
