Episode 051- Day Trippers: Horror Films of Acclaimed Directors

There’s a select group of directors who hold the title, “Masters of Horror” for bringing their distinctive styles to the horror film.

But, they aren’t the only ones who made an impact on horror cinema.

There are several acclaimed directors with illustrious careers who took a “Day Trip” into horror. Continue reading “Episode 051- Day Trippers: Horror Films of Acclaimed Directors”

Episode 049- A Completely Reliable Bad Influence: Fangoria Magazine

Fangoria magazine had been a mainstay of horror fandom for 38 years, but this year they shut their doors.

I remember when Fangoria started, and how fun it was to have a magazine dedicated to horror in all its facets.

In this episode, I talk about Fangoria, how it came to be, and what it meant to the fans and artists in modern horror.  The magazine not only had articles that are still worth looking back to, but the letters to the editor section are a lot of fun to revisit too. Continue reading “Episode 049- A Completely Reliable Bad Influence: Fangoria Magazine”

Episode 048- My Ride’s Here: Remembering George A. Romero

George Romero (1940-2017) has always held a special place in my heart, so it was very saddening to hear of his passing on July 16.

It is hard to say goodbye, and in this episode I talk about George and his career.

It’s a eulogy, of sorts, to a maverick filmmaker out of Pittsburgh who never wavered on his vision – from Night of the Living Dead to Survival of the Dead.  RIP, George. Continue reading “Episode 048- My Ride’s Here: Remembering George A. Romero”

Episode 047- Horror Movies at Used Car Prices

You don’t need Hollywood to make a movie when you can make one in your own backyard! 

Who needs a big budget when you’ve got a big imagination and some friends who are willing (or crazy enough) to get doused in fake blood?

In this episode, I honor the micro-budget horror movie – the movies made for tiny amounts of funds, and huge amounts of passion. Continue reading “Episode 047- Horror Movies at Used Car Prices”

Episode 046- Attack of the Killer Turkeys


Why do we love bad movies? 

Well, not all bad movies, but the ones that make you laugh out loud.  The ones that are so bad that they’re good.  And to see one of these movies with a group of friends can be a perfect night.

What about a movie marathon of these turkeys?  A lot of these turkeys were intended to be horror movies, and while they’re not what they were intended to be, they’re still pretty damn entertaining. Continue reading “Episode 046- Attack of the Killer Turkeys”

Episode 045- Tales From the Blood-Red Carpet: Etheria Film Night

One reason I love film festivals is that they celebrate creativity. 

So I was honored to be asked to judge Etheria Film Night held in early June in Hollywood.

Etheria Film Night is the world’s most respected showcase of new horror, comedy, science fiction, fantasy, action, and thriller films made by emerging women directors. Continue reading “Episode 045- Tales From the Blood-Red Carpet: Etheria Film Night”

Episode 044- Shut Up and Watch the Movie (Part Two)

Who says they don’t make good horror movies anymore? 

I think we’re in a good time for creative, creepy horror movies, you just need to know where to look (hint: it’s usually not from the major studios).

I made a list of movies released within the last four years that I liked, and there were too many to put into one episode!  Continue reading “Episode 044- Shut Up and Watch the Movie (Part Two)”

Etheria Film Night was a Sweet Success!

It’s been a busy and exciting time for H4H!

I just got back from Hollywood after judging the Etheria Film Night film festival on June 3rd.
It was a fantastic experience, and I got to interview a few artists, including a brief conversation with living legend Roger Corman!
An episode with all of my interviews with artists, directors and actors, like Bill Moseley, will be coming soon!
