Happy Thanksgiving! Episode 003 is our first hodge-podge or Frankensteinian episode, where we record a bunch of different, random, horror-related content and just paste it all together in one grand show. But your three hosts — Jay of the Dead, Wolfman Josh and Dr. Shock — review more than 30 horror films for you, so you’ll have plenty of movies to check out over the next two weeks.
In this episode, you’ll hear Wolfman and Jay of the Dead review a new documentary called “Birth of the Living Dead,” which is about George Romero’s “Night of the Living Dead.” Wolfman and Jay also discuss when monsters don’t look like monsters, and we theorize on why there was only one major horror release in theaters during October 2013. Dr. Shock gives you his top 20 horror picks from the Aughts, Wolfman Josh reviews a couple of bad, killer turkey movies, and Jay of the Dead discusses three Danielle Harris flicks. We hope you enjoy this horror feast over Thanksgiving! Please subscribe in iTunes, spread the word for us, and thanks for listening.
