NEXT WEEK: Frankenstein Versus THIS WEEK: Phantasm Continues

Hi Horror fans,

Yes, today (Friday, Feb. 26) was supposed to be the release date for HMP Ep. 083, but I genuinely lost track of which week we were in this month and messed up my calendaring. Totally my fault. Lame, I know, but an honest mistake. Forgive me.

Don’t forget to check out Part 2 of our Crossover Phantasm Franchise Review with our friends at The Sci Fi Podcast. Find the episode on the TSFP iTunes, Stitcher or at their website: Dave, Josh and I joined the conversation with Mattroid and Station! and it was a lot of fun.

We’ll bring you Ep. 083 next week: Friday, March 4 — A literal Frankensteinian episode, in that the main feature will be a “versus” episode between “Frankenstein” (1931) and “Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein” (1994). And then we hope to get back on schedule with another release the following Friday, March 11.

In the meantime, check out Dr. Shock’s movie review blog DVD Infatuation as well as some of the many great Movie Podcast Network shows, including Forgotten Flix Remembers, Geek Cast Live, Movie Podcast Weekly, Movie Stream Cast, Retro Movie Geek and The Sci Fi Podcast.

And if I may say so, this most recent Movie Podcast Weekly is quite entertaining and memorable, and we discuss a few horror movies, including an MPW review of “The Witch.” I’d be honored if you’d check it out.

  1. JOTD —

    You are forgiven.

    (not that you need to apologize for taking a well-deserved week off… I know that’s not exactly what this was, but still)

    Re: next week’s Frankenstein Versus episode, any chance you guys can work in the new Frankenstein movie that just released this week on VOD? It’s called Frankenstein.

    • No, Anthony smith, that’s not lame.

      You know what is lame, though? Hopping onto the comments, not to contribute to the community in a constructive way, but to criticize the hosts for mistakenly missing one scheduled week of the FREE podcast they produce for our listening pleasure – a podcast they pour hours into for preparation, recording and editing, with no promise of reward… hours they could have devoted to other endeavors, like spending time with their family. And being so incensed that they had one “off” week in nearly three years of recording that you had to finally hop onto the comments to call them lame…

      Yeah, that’s lame.

  2. Hey, I finally have a reason to get around to seeing Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. As much as I love Frankenstein (At this moment I’m drinking from my Frankenstein’s Monster coffee cup), I have a difficult time getting into any Frankenstein movies where the monster doesn’t have that classic Karloff/Jack Pierce look. It just doesn’t feel like Frankenstein’s Monster to me.

    Will you guys be talking about the new Victor Frankenstein at all? Like the Frankenstein movie that Dino mentioned, it’s recently been released on VOD and it looks as if it’s being released on DVD/Blu-Ray on March 8th.

  3. Just FYI, the next episode will be a regular Frankensteinian episode with a bunch of reviews, including some new releases. The classic Universal Monsters “vs” the modern remakes is just a new segment Doc and I came up with to spice up the hodge-podge episodes for, us personally.

  4. I’ve been watching nothing but Coen brothers films as of late, doing my best to get the taste of Hail, Caesar out of my brain.

    Frankenstein will now have to cut in line, knowing what’s ahead for the 4th.

    Much deserved week off, gentlemen.

    Please do not make a habit out of it.

    That’s quite the compliment!

    Off topic, has anyone seen The Sinful Dwarf? It’s in my Amazon cart buy haven’t been able to pull the buy trigger yet.

    • Didn’t enjoy Hail, Caesar huh? It’s a very specific taste. I loved it, but I can see how people might hate it. I think Coen films tend to grow on me over time as well. Reminds me of a mix between Hudsucker Proxy and Oh, Brother Where Art Thou set in the world of the studio system. That’s a winning combo for me. I can see how most people might hate it, though. But it is no Fargo. That’s my favorite by a landslide. And have you watched the Fargo television series? It’s pretty awesome.

  5. Have you guys checked out the Horror Amino app…I think you guys should have a presence on there since you are the kings of horror!!!!

      • The fun thing about the Hammer Frankenstein series is that rather than just following Universal’s lead, they instead had their Frankenstein series follow Dr. Frankenstein instead of the monster with each movie.

        • I’ve wanted to get into the hammer Frankensteins for some time. I guess I’m saving them for October viewings but maybe I’ll step it up on your recommendation, Sal. The only one I have is Frankenstein Created Woman, which I’ve watched many times.
          Besides just Hammer and universal there are a lot of Frankenstein movies so it’s hard to cover them all in a podcast.
          Also, I’m not confident that this Universal reboot will do a good job with Frankenstein, or any of the monsters really.

  6. Hey guys. I was curious if you have had a chance to see Frankenstein (2015) it’s directed by Bernard Rose, of Candyman fame. It’s a interesting modern take on the Frankenstein story. Although its probably too late for your Frankenstein episode it’s definitely worth your time.

  7. Whoopee! I’m totally stoked about this episode. Frankenstein (1931) is my favorite horror movie ever. Every time there’s a Frankensteinian episode I get excited, but then realize it’s not actually about Frankenstein the movie. Anyhow, I’m looking forward to it. I hope JOTD doesn’t Nosferatu this movie.

  8. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE HOW MUCH JOSH HATES PHANTASM! Hahahah, it’s so good to hear him like this, I’m used to his warm congeniality on the sci-fi podcast, but this was so wonderful to hear him dislike something so vehemently. I’ve listened to it over and over (even though I’ve never seen the movies).

    • If you enjoy hearing Josh complain about a series, check out some of the podcasts leading up to and in the middle of the A Nightmare on Elm Street series. While it did seem as if he had more fun than he expected to, I’m pretty sure Josh had to be pulled kicking and screening into reviewing those movies. Ha
