Welcome back to the Horror 101 Podcast. For this 90th milestone show we're spotlighting one of those rare horror remakes that does it's job well. In 1968 George Romero directed a new kind of horror movie which gave birth to an original new monster, the modern day zombie. After a last minute name change and an error in the title of the film the copyright was essentially lost and this film has ever since been open as public domain. 22 years later special effects wizard Tom Savini was given the opportunity to direct the remake of Romero's classic. We'll speak with Tony Todd and get some of his stories on the production of that film. How did he get the part of Ben? Which actor did he have issues with during the shoot? All that and more coming at you from Horror 101!

Show highlights:

01:00 Prelude to Terror...
05:30 Remaking a classic/Public Domain...

Welcome back to the Horror 101 Podcast. For our 89th show we've focused on a big budget bomb from 1989. How can a monster film set 2 miles underwater starring Peter Weller and Richard Crenna with Jerry Goldsmith music and effects from Stan Winston fail? You're about to find out. A derivative script and bad timing probably had a huge part of it. We'll discuss the pros and cons of this creature feature called Leviathan and I'll give a small tribute to Rutger Hauer who sadly passed away a few days AFTER we recorded this show.

Welcome back to the Horror 101 podcast. On this show we're returning to the vampire train. We could have covered Lost Boys but we decided to go the not-so-fluffy route and focused on a more sinister tale of the undead. Three key actors from Aliens (1986) went from outer space to the deep west and helped provide a very unique look at night time predators. Plagued with a failing production company and being released a month within the much more popular Lost Boys, this film was released with very little fanfare and was basically cast by the wayside. In the last few decades it has gained quite the cult following and has become the favourite vampire film of many fans. With memorable performances by Lance Henriksen and the late, great Bill Paxton we offer you the Horror 101 treatment of Kathryn Bigelow's Near Dark. Join us!

Show Highlights:

01:00 Prelude to Terror...
04:00 Choosing the film for episode 87...
11:20 Jenny Wright (where did you go?)...
15:50 Kidnapped in Broad Daylight...

Welcome back to the Horror 101 Podcast. For our 86th show we're spotlighting one of the greatest road thrillers ever made. At the 11th hour we switched our plans of covering Vamp, which would have continued our vampire campaign. We decided to go a different route to focus on a hidden gem. A little Canon/HBO film that wasn't a huge commercial success and flew under the radar when it was released. Undoubtedly, one of the best cast films. Brilliant performances and a smart script makes this film a must see. Some may argue this isn't a horror film but with the amount of dread it dishes out, I say differently. Plus, Rutger Hauer plays one of the best villains ever. It is our pleasure to give the Horror 101 treatment to Robert Harmon's The Hitcher (1986). Join us!

Show Highlights:

01:00 Prelude to Terror...
04:00 Switching from Vamp to Hitcher...
09:00 "My Mother told me never to do this..."
12:00 Becoming 'The One"
13:10 Family Massacre...
18:00 Framed...
22:10 How do you like Shitsville?
25:15 You Spit on my Wrist...
28:35 I just wanted to help him...

32:25 Siskel and Ebert got it wrong...
33:15 "There's something I gotta do..."

Welcome back to the Horror 101 show! If you had the privilege of growing up in the 70s you might remember a two-part Saturday night special broadcast to your TV in November of 1979. It was a screen adaptation of Stephen King's second novel involving the vampire infestation of a small town, directed by the man that gave us The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Having to adhere to television's strict guidelines of zero gore and profanity, this special was well crafted with an excellent cast and genuine spooks.
