The Classic Horror Cast

It's the yuletide season again, and so Erik, Sean, and Kyle are here to discuss one of the most celebrated Christmas horror films ever made, Bob Clark's 1974 movie, Black Christmas. Is it Christmassy? Is it a slasher movie? Is it even very fun to watch? Ho ho ho!

This month, we're all about BRAAAAAAAAAAINS! It's time to discuss '80s horror comedy and what better film to focus on than Dan O'Bannon's The Return of the Living Dead, a film so influential, it made everyone think zombies only eat brains.

Happy Halloween, everyone!

This month, we're hobbled--err, humbled--to join you to talk about a Stephen King movie, and you won't even have to get out of the cock-a-doodie car to listen! Kyle, Sean, and later Erik gather in the snowy mountains to discuss Rob Reiner's 1990 King adaptation Misery, a movie with a huge reputation, and an Oscar-winning lead performance from Kathy Bates. Are they worth the hype, Mister Man?

This month, it must be a full moon, because Kyle, Erik, and Sean are talking about one of a very small list of good werewolf movies, Joe Dante's 1981 classic The Howling. However, in a film written by John Sayles and featuring dazzlingly grotty effects by the legendary Rob Bottin, is there a lot to be desired? Is self-help and new-age medicine really the right setting for a werewolf movie?

This month, the fellas discuss the first major film by horror legend Stuart Gordon, as well as the first major work adapted from a story by H.P. Lovecraft, 1985's Re-Animator. There's much talk of bridging horror and comedy, whether horror can be funny at all, Herbert West as an anti-hero, and Lovecraft as a creator of stories. Also, there's lots of talk of heads and head.

This month, Sean and Kyle discuss Roman Polanski's classic of paranoia, female suppression, and Satanism, Rosemary's Baby. Is the movie out of date now, or does its terrors seem all the more potent in today's climate?
