It’s Black Friday on HORROR MOVIE PODCAST, where we’re Dead Serious About Horror Movies… We hope you had a great Thanksgiving yesterday. To show appreciation to the listeners of HMP, we have prepared a BONUS episode, where all four hosts — Jay of the Dead, Wolfman Josh, Dr. Shock and Dr. Walking Dead — dive deep into the analysis of George Romero’s Dawn of the Dead (1978) for an episode that we’ve titled: Black Friday: The Horrors of Consumerism. We also bring you a review of the 1980s, semi-slasher oddity, Chopping Mall (1986). This episode is dedicated to a listener called “Snowy Otter.” (We’ll get to “Videodrome.”)
And make sure you haven’t overlooked Episode 034, our first Cryptozoological Horror. Our next episode releases in one week, on Friday, December 5, 2014.
