Horror Movie Podcast Ep. 150: Killing in the Name of – Part 1: Belief

HMP Killing in the Name OfNo soul is safe on Episode 150 of HORROR MOVIE PODCAST, where we’re Dead Serious About Horror Movies. This week we bring you another of our themed episodes, Part 1 in a 2 Part series, Killing in the Name of… with a focus on real life horrors carried out to preserve ideology. Basically, we’re talking religion. We also talk politics, ask your age and weight … and then we make fun of your laugh. Okay, those last few things aren’t true, but we do make it nice and uncomfortable when we challenge our beliefs, the beliefs of others and discuss whether we’d kill someone if God told us to. You wanna get nuts?! Let’s get nuts!!! During this themed edition of HMP, Jay of the Dead, Dr. Shock and Wolfman Josh will make a believer out of you when they review Frailty (2001) and Red State (2011).
