HMP 63 Art

This episode is dedicated to Producer Jason Blum.

In this unusual edition of HORROR MOVIE PODCAST, where we’re Dead Serious About Horror Movies, Jay of the Dead attempts to save the future of horror cinema by delivering an open letter-style address to Producer Jason Blum of Blumhouse Productions, arguably the most important Producer in horror today, in hopes that he will listen to this episode and consider implementing these good-natured suggestions to improve the overall quality of his future productions.

The Background: Last weekend, Jay saw the latest paranormal, found-footage Blumhouse flick called “The Gallows,” and its utter failure as a quality horror film inspired Jay to finally openly express his concerns with the direction of contemporary horror cinema and to publicly provide a list of foundational filmmaking tips that he calls, “Jay of the Dead’s 13 Principles for Making an Effective Horror Film.”

Jay and Josh conclude the show with Feature Reviews of two of the most recent Blumhouse Productions, “The Gallows” and “Creep.” If you’re Dead Serious About Horror Movies,” this is a must-listen! Join us! Continue reading
