Welcome back to the Horror 101 show! For our 77th episode we're going back to 1987 and giving some love to another Stuart Gordon/Brian Yuzna collaboration. The Charles Band produced Dolls. Admittedly, this is very light horror but at a scant 77 minutes long, with an excellent cast and one long and stormy night in a supernatural mansion, Dolls is always moving and a lot of fun. We'll give our take on the recent Halloween trailer and our thoughts on what its going to be like having to remove Halloween II (1981) from the Canon once its released. Join us as we give the Horror 101 treatment to Dolls!

Horror 101 - Episode 76: Videodrome

For episode 76 the crew each selected a title they wanted to cover and we put it to a vote for our Patrons. Their choice? David Cronenberg's Videodrome, starring James Woods and Deborah Harry. This is our third time focusing on Cronenberg's work at the Horror 101 Podcast. Videodrome is a dark and eccentric look at the effects of media on the psyche. When UHF channel 83 station owner Max Renn stumbles upon an ultra-violent pirated satellite video feed he begins a campaign to acquire it for his station. The further he chases down the source, the more his world turns upside down. Join us as we dissect this Canadian horror filled with the bizarre body horror effects Cronenberg is known for, brilliantly displayed by Rick Baker.

Welcome back to the Horror 101 show. For this 75th milestone show Nood suggested we should cover a classic from 1975, so it was decided. We were going to take a bite out of Steven Spielberg's Jaws. Jaws still stands as an incredible achievement by the then young and enthusiastic Spielberg. It was one of the first summer blockbusters and instantly sparked fear into the hearts of millions who loved to swim in the open ocean. With outstanding performances and the most iconic John Williams' score, Jaws still stands the test of time more than 40 years after its release. We'll share our stories with how it affected our lives, focusing on our favorite and no so favorite parts. For this special 75th episode its our privilege to give The Horror 101 treatment to JAWS.

Show highlights:

01:00 Prelude to Terror...
03:40 Cult Sensation's new ink...
05:15 This was Nood's suggestion...
11:50 The death of Chrissy...
15:30 The Kintner Boy...

Welcome to the 74th Horror 101 episode. Get out your shit mittens, listeners. We've got a stinker coming right at ya! Remember we were hinting at posting a hater show? Inadvertently, this turned out to be one of those. After a listener suggested we revisit this 80s 'gem' called Dead and Buried, directed by Gary Sherman we decided to give it a shot and the result was a hilariously scathing review. Contrary to our usual promotion style, this episode is going to bring the anvil down on a film about the undead plaguing a small fishing town called Potter's Bluff. Join us for our first (mostly) negative review podcast!

01:00 Prelude to Terror

Horror 101 - Episode 72: Oculus

Welcome to the first Horror 101 podcast of 2018. This time we focus on a newer title that most of the crew hasn't seen before. Its Mike Flanagan's Oculus from 2013 starring Rory Cochrane and Dr. Who's favorite redhead, Karen Gillan. Oculus is an excellent modern horror which relies on atmosphere and terror instead of gore and jump scares. A welcomed break from the usual horror tropes frequently utilized today. This is the story of a brother and sister putting themselves in harms way to vindicate their parents (and themselves) from a dark history perpetuated by a centuries old looking glass that seems Hell bent on destroying the lives of those in proximity to it. Will the pair prove the mirror's evil power or become the latest victims of it's malicious trickery?

Show highlights:

01:00 Prelude to Terror...
02:55 Welcome to 2018...
05:00 Oculus is a Nood and Cash favourite...
07:00 Reacquiring the mirror...
09:20 The shrouded illusion...
15:35 History of the looking glass...
21:00 Why not just smash it?
24:40 Losing control...
26:00 Biting the light bulb...
28:00 Blending of the two timelines...
30:00 The pact to destroy the mirror...

Welcome horror fans, to the final Threequel podcast of the year! Many have speculated about what the last film we're covering may be. Its time for a curve ball! We're not giving you a Part 3. We're giving you what SHOULD have been a Part 3. What many horror veterans would consider the REAL Creepshow 3. We're talking about John Harrison's Tales From the Darkside: The Movie (1990). Directed by the man who scored the first Creepshow, Darkside is the cinematic crescendo of the successful Tales From the Darkside 80s TV show. This anthology film gives us three tales of terror from King, Doyle, Romero and McDowell. A splendidly fun horror movie featuring KNB effects and budding roles from established stars. Come, end the year (and our Threequel theme) with us and learn why 'Tales' is the Creepshow 3 you never got but always wanted!

Horror 101 - Episode 70: Friday the 13th Part III

A string of early 80s horror films went the 3D route. Jaws 3, Amityville 3 and the spotlight of this show, Steve Miner's Friday the 13th Part III. This third chapter in the Friday Franchise has tons of flaws, which we highlight in detail but there is still some elements that lock in Friday III as historically significant. This film cost Paramount a LOT of money to prepare it for 3D audiences. Did this strategy force the production to put all the money in the wrong places? Is it possibly the worst Friday of the series? The score is hokey. The 3D setup shots are bizarre. The story is confusing. Join us for one of our most critical podcasts yet!

01:00 Prelude to Terror...
03:30 Hosting and donations...

its our favourite time of year once again! We've reached that nasty 69 number! We have had more requests to cover Tommy Lee Wallace's Halloween 3 than any other film since we began Horror 101 so there was absolutely no doubt in our minds that we wouldn't be covering Season of the Witch for this part of our threequel year. We'll discuss how it affected the Halloween series and why the producers took a chance on moving in another direction. Where was Michael Myers? Could Halloween III have been the start to a whole line of Halloween themed horror movies? With excellent music by John Carpenter and Alan Howarth no other podcast makes it sound like you're watching the movie with us like this show. Its the Horror 101 Halloween Special! We hope you enjoy it!

After our last farewell podcast we wanted to come back to you a little more upbeat and we had the perfect Part III to do it with. More comedy than horror, Sam Raimi's Army of Darkness is the endlessly entertaining third chapter to his Evil Dead story. At the end of Evil Dead II we saw Ash transported back to medieval times. Army of Darkness is the story of this out of place 20th century man fulfilling the foretold prophecy and becoming the savior of the realm. We'll discuss our first experiences seeing the movie over 20 years ago. There's a horror geek dispute that you won't want to miss. Its Horror 101 covering Bruce Campbell Vs. The Army of Darkness.
