Horror Movie Podcast BONUS Ep. 123: Remembering George Romero

HMP George RomeroIn this special bonus episode of HORROR MOVIE PODCAST, we say goodbye to horror legend George A. Romero, who passed away on July 16, 2017. Your regular hosts, Jay of the Dead, Dr. Shock and Wolfman Josh are joined by our fourth official co-host, Dr. Walking Dead, and by special guest Gillman Joel of Universal Monsters Cast and Retro Movie Geek to share their thoughts on the man who created the modern zombie monster and some of the best zombie movies of all time.

“The Horror directors really do kind of change the world, but they do it from behind the scenes. They do it in the late-night theater, in the drive-in, in the VHS tapes. They’re not the ones winning the Academy Awards. They’re not the ones on the red carpet. They’re not the ones who get noticed.” — Kyle Bishop (aka Dr. Walking Dead) Continue reading

Horror Movie Podcast Ep. 063: A Horror Fan’s Plea to Jason Blum and Blumhouse Productions or: “Jay of the Dead’s 13 Principles for Making an Effective Horror Film”

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

The Weekly Horror Movie Podcast Ep. 017: Mama Don’t Like Tattletales

SHOW NOTES:

For this show The Weekly Horror Movie Podcast brings you two special guests: He’s the former singer of The Misfits, we welcome musician and actor Michale Graves.
