Movie Podcast Network BONUS 008: 2017 Meetup Event – Better Watch Out with Director Chris Peckover

MPN Better Watch Out

Christmas comes early from the 2017 Movie Podcast Network Meetup Event in the safe neighborhood of Salt Lake City, Utah! It was an incredible event and we wish you all could have joined us. The weekend included multiple meals with hosts and listeners, trivia games, live podcasting, live music, hiking, a birthday party, group screenings of Better Watch Out (2017)—with a Filmmaker Q&A—and Tremors (1990), plus a double feature of Friday the 13th (1980) and Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (1988) on the actual Friday the 13th of October 2017. Whew! Quite a weekend! You’re going to hear great live recordings from all these events in the days to come.

Here, HMP’s own Jay of the Dead, Dr. Shock and Wolfman Josh podcast with their MPN co-horts from Movie Podcast Weekly, Retro Movie Geek, Universal Monsters Cast and Movie Stream Cast in front of a live audience after a screening of Better Watch Out (2017). The panel is also joined by the film’s writer/director, Chris Peckover for a Q&A with the MPN listeners. If you’re jealous of all the fun we had at the 2017 MPN Meetup Event, you’d better watch out for the next one!

Horror Movie Podcast Ep. 125: The Horror Movies of Stephen King – Part 2 (1997 – 2017), including The Dark Tower (2017)

HMP Stephen King Horror Part 2

Continuing on through our tour of terror, Horror Movie Podcast Episode 125 is Part 2 of a two-part series about Stephen King Horror Movie Adaptations. Much like our previous episode, in Part 2 we go through a roll call, where we briefly talk about Stephen King horror adaptations from 1997 to 2017. (If you haven’t heard it yet, our previous episode covers from 1976 through 1996.)

Jay of the Dead, Wolfman Josh, Dr. Shock and special guest Gillman Joel Robertson of Universal Monsters Cast and Retro Movie Geek bring you Feature Reviews of “The Night Flier” (1997) and “Secret Window” (2004) and “Riding the Bullet” (2004) and “1408” (2007) and “The Dark Tower” (2017), which doesn’t have a lot of Horror but we discuss it, anyway. Near the end of this show, your HMP hosts also bring you their Top 5 Favorite Stephen King Horror Adaptations. But without a doubt, the two highlights of this episode are Gillman Joel’s passionate rant about the end of “The Mist” (2007) and a great interview with screenwriter Matt Greenberg (“1408,” “Mercy,” “Halloween H2O: 20 Years Later,” et al.). Join us! Continue reading

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
