Episode 089-Blood & Flesh & Obsession: Unearthing the Cult of Al Adamson

‘Horror Film Director Found Slain, Buried Under Floor’, screamed the August 1995 headline in The Los Angeles Times.

From the 60s to the 80s, producer/director Al Adamson made cheap, crazy and effective exploitation films, like SATAN’S SADISTS and DRACULA VS. FRANKENSTEIN for the drive-in market.

But the whole truth behind Al Adamson’s strange life and gruesome death reveals perhaps the most bizarre career in Hollywood history.

Episode 087- Dinosaur Horror! Double Feature

Welcome to PART ONE of a podcast double-feature with the I Know Dino Podcast!  

Dragons! The xenomorph from Alien! The shark from Jaws!

These monsters are descendants of real creatures that walked the earth- the dinosaur.

Horror movies have used the dinosaur as a source for monsters since the silent era because they are a source of endless fascination and terror. 

But, do the dinosaurs deserve their role as horror movie villain? Are there dinosaurs that are even weirder and scarier than what the movies usually show?

Episode 086- Horror Pride

Horror is an emotion first and a setting later. It’s the only genre that is directly named after an emotion, and that gives horror a universal appeal. It also makes each person’s experience and interpretation personal.

We close out June, Pride Month, with a celebration of the contributions the LGBTQ community has brought to the horror genre since the creation of the Gothic novel. Continue reading “Episode 086- Horror Pride”

Episode 085- Last Kiss

Nothing marks the end of an era more potently than when the icons of that era pass away.

The cold reality is that when horror icons pass away, they rarely get memorialized in mainstream arenas.

So, I wanted to give an “Irish Wake”, a happy send-off for several of the people who passed away over the last few years. The people who gave horror fans their First Kiss. Continue reading “Episode 085- Last Kiss”

If director Guillermo del Toro didn’t exist, we horror fans would have had to invent him.

He’s a true lifelong fan himself, who brought his unique style and passion to horror films, and his love for monsters paid off when The Shape of Water won Best Picture in 2017. 

So…why is there so little conversation about Guillermo del Toro in the horror community? Continue reading “Episode 083- We Need to Talk About Guillermo”
