Can you sympathize with a monster?
In some cases I think you can. It depends on the story and how well the story is told and acted.
In this episode J. Blake Fichera (author of the Rondo-nominated book, “Scored To Death: Conversations with Some of Horror’s Greatest Composers”) returns to the show to discuss the sympathetic monster in horror movies. Continue reading “Episode 043- Sympathetic Monsters: with Guest J. Blake Fichera”
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 042- Shut Up and Watch the Movie (Part One)”

I was at the Cinema Wasteland Convention in Strongsville, Ohio a few weekends ago. When I was there, I got the idea for this episode from one of the all-night horror movie debates. The question started a long discussion about movie remakes, and everybody attacked or defended them.

I hope you enjoy the show!
