HCA 3rd Horror Cinema Awards ArtHORROR MOVIE PODCAST PRESENTS the 3rd Annual HORROR CINEMA AWARDS — A celebration of the finest filmic achievements in horror for 2018!

We’ve assembled another wonderful jury from every corner of the horror community, including filmmaker, critics, writers, podcasters, artists, and academics. The nominees are in traditional awards show categories like “Best Actress” and “Best Picture.” The nominees were then voted on by our selected jurors, as well as the Horror Movie Podcast hosts and our 2018 HMP Listeners of the Year.

After the main event, your HMP hosts will be giving away their own special “Dead Serious” awards where we get a little more out of the box and award films for their best “Creeptures” or use of “Real Life Horror.”

Horror Movie Podcast Ep. 144: Pig-Headed Horror and Ghost Stories (2018) and A Quiet Place (2018)

HMP Pighead Art

What the hell is “Pig-Headed Horror”? In Episode 144 of HORROR MOVIE PODCAST, your horror hosts go hog wild as we explore this phrase coined by Jay of the Dead, who defines it as a bizarre horror sub-subgenre (or at the very least, an odd trend), in which a human wears a pig mask—or even pig head—and leaves their victims boared to death! We should note that Wolfman Josh considers wallowing in the mud of “Pig-Headed Horror” to be beneath us as film critics, while Dr. Shock is amused by the full boar debate. But never fear, Jay of the Dead brings home the bacon!

To help us explore the theme of “Pig-Headed Horror,” we review Albino Farm (2015) and Madison County (2012) and Tormented (2014). Wolfman Josh and Dr. Shock also open up the Collector’s Crypt for a quick review of Scream Factory’s Blu-ray release of Motel Hell (1980). And this episode also has Feature Reviews of new release horror films Ghost Stories (2018) and A Quiet Place (2018) for some alternate programming. That’ll do, pig. That’ll do. Now it’s time to go PIG or go wee, wee, wee … all the way home! Sooey!

No pigs were harmed in the making of this episode.
