HMP Lovecraft 1

You’re listening to HORROR MOVIE PODCAST, where we’re Dead Serious About Horror Movies… In Episode 086, our Elder God, Jay of the Dead, is absent while our Outer God, Wolfman Josh, and The Great Old One, Dr. Shock, improvise with an introduction to one of history’s most influential names in horror: H.P. Lovecraft. Nearly Lovecraft-illiterate themselves, Dave and Josh welcome horror scholar Carl Sederholm to the podcast to talk about the influence of H.P. Lovecraft on contemporary horror as well as tease his new book, The Age of Lovecraft. Dave and Josh also review three of the most prominent Lovecraft adaptations, all from Director Stuart Gordon and Writer Dennis Paoli, Re-Animator (1985), Castle Freak (1995) and Dagon (2001).

HMP Frankenstein Versus

IT’S ALIVE! Welcome to HORROR MOVIE PODCAST, where we’re Dead Serious About Horror Movies… This is Episode 083. In this ultimate Frankensteinian episode, Jay of the Dead, Dr. Shock and Wolfman review the original Frankenstein (1931) and compare and contrast it with the most recent telling of this classic story, this year’s Frankenstein (2016) from Bernard Rose (the director of Candyman). We also discuss Mary Shelley’s original novel and several other adaptations of her work, including Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein. Wolfman also brings you a mini-review of last year’s Victor Frankenstein and Doc brings you a special tribute to Béla Lugosi.

Caution: We reveal major plot spoilers for both “Frankenstein” movies, as well as the original novel and some other versions of this story. If that’s too much for you … well … you’ve been warned! Continue reading

Horror Movie Podcast Ep. 041: When Science Goes Too Far

HMP Sidebar ScienceEpisode 041 is another horror-themed episode of HORROR MOVIE PODCAST, where we’re dead serious about horror movies… This week we’re exploring Dr. Shock’s theme which is WHEN SCIENCE GOES TOO FAR! (Thunder clapping sounds here)

Even though this episode only has two in-depth Feature Reviews, namely Altered States (1980) and The Fly (1986), we still have other discussions relating to our theme that we think you’ll enjoy. And of course, we reference many films during the course of the episode.

And as excited as we are about this theme, we are even more excited to have the honor to introduce writer, musician and science fiction / horror aficionado Matt Daniels (aka “Mattroid” aka “Gary the Unicorn”), who is a Masterful guest!
