Horror Movie Podcast Ep. 088: Bottom of the Bargain Bin Blind-Buy Horror Flicks, Revisiting Green Room (2016), and an Interview With Nicholas Peterson

HMP Horror Bargain BinIt’s time to dive into the bargain bin with us this week on HORROR MOVIE PODCAST, where we’re Dead Serious About Horror Movies… In Episode 088, Jay of the Dead, Dr. Shock and Wolfman Josh bring you another hodge-podged, Frankensteinian episode to discuss some of their favorite “blind buys” from gas stations and video stores around the country, often based on outlandish movie titles or cover art. Jay also takes this opportunity to float a new term that he refers to as “Basement Horror.”

Wolfman Josh also welcomes filmmaker Nicholas Peterson to the podcast to explore the evolution of a working filmmaker’s career and talk about his new animated horror short Sticky Fingers, which he is currently promoting on Kickstarter.

Finally, Jay of the Dead adds his take on Green Room (2016),  for a spoiler-filled review with the Wolfman. Josh has previously released a non-spoiler podcast review of the film with guest Kill Bill Kill in HMP Episode 81. Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween — Day 25: Celebrating Horror Movie Podcast’s Two-Year Anniversary — by Jay of the Dead

2 Years of HMP - Old Logo

Jay of the Dead here. Today is October 25, 2015, which is exactly two years since the launch of Horror Movie Podcast. On Friday, October 25, 2013, we released our epic debut episode titled Horror Movie Podcast Ep. 001: The Horror Genre and Our Top 10 Favorite Horror Movies. (It is a must-listen episode, if you haven’t heard it yet.) At that time, HMP only had three hosts: Jay of the Dead, Wolfman Josh and Dr. Walking Dead Kyle Bishop.

Many of our listeners have gathered sometime during the course of the past two years, so if you haven’t heard how Horror Movie Podcast came to be, I will give you the history below. Continue reading
