Welcome back to the Horror 101 show. Something a little different this podcast. Its not exactly a hidden gem but we don’t see this film being talked about in the community too often. If we were to tell you there was an anthology horror film from the 90s, hosted by John Carpenter as this ghoul in a morgue, cracking eye rolling jokes and ushering you into tales which feature Tobe Hooper, Wes Craven, David Naughton, Sam Raimi, Stacy Keach, Mark Hamill, Blondie, Sheena Easton, and David Warner. And thats maybe HALF of the faces you’d recognise in the film. Would you believe me? Cause that shit exists, Ladies and Gentlemen. For this 93rd episode we’re gonna dig up these tales of terror from 1993. Join us as we give the Horror 101 treatment to Body Bags!

Show Highlights:

01:00 Prelude to Terror...
05:45 Brian Stewart is DOWN!
07:00 Introducing Body Bags...
11:10 Calling World Famous...
12:25 Undead John Carpenter...
14:00 Midnight Gas Station...
21:45 Bad Hair Day...
29:15 Here's Looking at You, Kid...

Welcome back to the Horror 101 podcast. In 1992 Bernard Rose directed a film which was based on a Clive Barker Story about the potency of urban legends and how far down the rabbit hole one graduate student will go to find out the truth about the infamous Candyman. They say if you call his name 5 times into the mirror he will come and butcher you with his hook for a hand. A true retelling of the Bloody Mary game. It featured good gore, excellent performances from Tony Todd and Virginia Madsen and a haunting score by Phillip Glass. Since Jordan Peele is helping to write the next chapter in this story (coming next year) we decided to give the Horror 101 treatment to Candyman this Halloween. Join us!

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...
11:00 "They're coming to get you, Barbara!"
15:45 The Evolution of Barbara...
18:20 Tony Todd: Reading for Savini...

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.

Show Highlights:

01:00 Prelude to Terror...

Horror 101 - Episode 87: Near Dark (1987)

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...
21:03 The Bar Massacre...
25:40 Godspeed Motel...
28:40 Family Reunion...
30:35 Severen Vs. Truck...
33:27 Burning in Light...
35:35 Cured...
40:35 Scoring the Film...

Horror 101 - Episode 86: The Hitcher (1986)

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...
29:40 Truck Conundrum...
32:25 Siskel and Ebert got it wrong...
33:15 "There's something I gotta do..."
34:35 Scoring the Film...
38:45 Conclusion! Thanks for Listening!
