Welcome back to the Horror 101 show. This will be our 60th podcast, coming at you just in time for your holidays. To help us celebrate this 60th milestone we're continuing the podcast with more classic Vincent Price horror and focusing on Roger Coreman's Fall of the House of Usher from 1960. Based on the timelessly macabre short story by Edgar Allan Poe. This film is a king in the Gothic Horror enterprise with stunning atmosphere, rich sets and fantastic wardrobe. This was the first of many Poe adaptations featuring Price from American International Pictures. We'll make some comparisons between the film and the original story and talk about Poe himself. Sit back, enjoy some eggnog and let Horror 101 bring some classic darkness to your holidays.

Horror 101 - Episode 58: Halloween Special with Ghostwatch

Welcome back to the Horror 101 podcast! Another Halloween is upon us! This year we're featuring a television special which was broadcast by the BBC1 back on October 31st, 1992. Not since Orson Welles' War of the Worlds radio broadcast in the 30s has a live show ever caused so much uncertainty and panic. Way before mass communication like the internet was available as a social crutch to validate the facts, this show took an unprecedented approach at reality TV as real journalists were used in a mockumentary which investigated paranormal activity. All the stops were pulled to invent a realistic and frightening scenario which many viewers believed was really happening. Its quite possibly the most effective and terrifying hoax ever released on television and has been the influence for several reality TV productions that followed. And for these reasons the Horror 101 team is spotlighting BBC's Ghostwatch starring Michael Parkinson and Sarah Green. We take some time to remember The Godfather of Gore, Herschell Gordon Lewis who passed away the day we recorded. Join us for this year's Horror 101 Halloween Special!

Show Highlights:

01:00 Prelude to Terror...
03:10 Halloween III revisit???
04:35 Retraction from the Tales From the Crypt show...
06:15 Remembering Herschell Gordon Lewis...
10:30 "The program you're about to watch..."
12:08 Using real news people and journalists...
14:50 The insidious disappearing spectre...
17:30 The 'Pipes' sightings...
18:30 Gloryhole...(its not what you think)
20:20 The hoax within a hoax...
22:00 Nood's problem with the host...
23:23 From disarm to alarm...
26:30 And now you question your reality...
33:00 The public outrage...
35:08 Scoring the show...
37:40 Conclusion...thanks for listening and Happy Halloween!

Welcome back to The Horror 101 Show. On this 55th podcast we will be covering another new film by director Jeremy Saulnier. Its Sir Patrick Stewart in his first horror movie since Tobe Hooper's Lifeforce. We couldn't believe Saulnier got him to play a racist homicidal Nazi Skinhead. And he kills the performance. This will be one of the last films we get from the recently deceased Anton Yelchin. This is a movie about survival in its most brutal form. We loved it. Join us as we give the horror 101 treatment to Green Room.

We'll discuss our first flame mail that we received after our last show. It took 5 years before a listener took the time to shit on us. Listen to what pissed them off so much.

Welcome to the 53rd episode of the Horror 101 Show. Since Cash and The World Famous Brian Stewart turn 40 this year we figured we'd spotlight a horror film from the year they came unto this world, 1976. What better time to show some love to Brian De Palma's Carrie, based on one of Stephen King's first novels. Get out your pig's blood and St. Sebastian statues, we've got a great show for you. Since the anti-bully movement is in full motion these days Carrie is more relevant now than maybe its ever been before. Starring Sissy Spacek, William Katt, Nancy Allen, Piper Laurie, P.J. Soles and introducing John Travolta. Carrie is the ultimate underdog story of a young misfit girl who, after being picked on all her life by her peers and an overbearing mother manifests a powerful telekinesis that is unleashed in a hellish display of lethal retribution after a vicious prank goes too far. We will watch both the original and 2013 remake starring Chloe Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore and compare the two. We've thrown in some music from 1976 to give that 70s vibe. Join us for 38 minutes of senior prom hellishness.

Show highlights:

01:00 Prelude to terror...
03:15 Nood joins us for the female perspective...
04:40 The genesis of a lot of greats...

Get ready for a Horror 101 show that is unlike any that have come before it. For the first time ever we spend more time shredding horror films than we do promoting them. With the recent death of Larry Drake we took the opportunity to spotlight three films he was involved in. The first is a made for TV horror film from 1981 called Dark Night of the Scarecrow. The second is one of the most ridiculous slasher films ever made, Dr. Giggles. And finally, we cover Sam Raimi's Darkman. For the first time ever we give a movie a ZERO. Listen to how The World Famous Brian Stewart almost destroys Cash's TV. He's THAT annoyed. We'll discuss the horror homages in Tarantino's Hateful Eight and include music from John Carpenter's upcoming album Lost Themes II. This is the episode that may offend some but is guaranteed to leave everyone in stitches. Its another 43 minutes of Horror 101 goodness you're not going to want to miss.

01:00 Prelude to ridiculousness...

Horror 101 - Episode 51: Cronenberg's The Fly (1986)

Welcome back to the Horror 101 show where we are continuing to Educate your Fears. With the new Ghostbusters film coming our conversation turned to remakes recently and when it was disclosed that the World Famous Brian Stewart hadn't seen David Cronenberg's 1986 remake of Kurt Neumann's The Fly (1958 with Vincent Price) then we knew exactly what Episode 51 was going to be. David Cronenberg has been called the Canadian David Lynch because of his bizarre and sometimes confusing narratives. Whatever your opinion of his style, there is one thing that we can all agree on and that is Mr. Cronenberg knows horror and he isn't shy about using gore and grim nastiness to tell a story.

In our opinion The Fly is a great achievement that rivals Carpenter's The Thing for great 80s remake status. Its as tragic as it is terrifying. The Fly has amazing performances from Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis. An astounding classical score from Howard Shore and some of Chris Walas' most horrifying special effects ever filmed. Join us as we dissect the film and its production in this retrospective show and give the Horror 101 treatment to Cronenberg's The Fly.

Show Highlights...

01:00 Introduction to The Fly (old and new)...
05:30 The $5 bet...
07:15 The chemistry between Davis and Goldblum...
10:25 From celebration to tragic mistake...
13:40 The Compound Fracture...
14:30 Be afraid...be very afraid!
16:50 From Euphoria to Deterioration...

19:40 Puking on the Donut (vomit drop)
21:00 Guess who's pregnant!
22:40 "I'll hurt you if you stay"
24:50 Nood enters!!
25:12 The torment of Stathis (Chris Walas effects)...
28:35 Not disclosing the ending...scoring the film.
31:36 Conclusion...
