For Horror Metropolis, Episode 002, BillChete has chosen the theme of “Freaky Mannequins.” Unfortunately, BillChete himself and Terror Tovey were unable to record this episode with us, but we’re happy to welcome Horror Metropolis’s first special guest HADDONFIELD HATCHET of the Land of the Creeps horror movie podcast. And for those who are familiar with Land of the Creeps and GregaMortis… Jay of the Dead asks who is a bigger fan of John Carpenter’s “Halloween” (1978) — Haddonfield Hatchet or GregaMortis?

Also during this episode, you’ll get an unexpected mini review of “The Cabin in the Woods.” We also review a spoof of Hammer horror called “Carry on Screaming” (1966) and a memorable horror flick from 1979 called “Tourist Trap” (1979).
