Happy Horror Time is hosted by Tim Murdock & Matt Emert – two off-the-wall gay guys who LOVE scary movies. We discuss recently released horror films (spoiling everything along the way) and interview horror stars & insiders. We're unpolished, unscripted, and a ton of fun!
Ep 81: Interview w/Tracie Thoms from "Death Proof"
She gave us 525,600 reasons to love her in “Rent,” but horror fans remember Tracie Thoms as stuntwoman Kim, who drove (and fought) like a badass in “Death Proof.” Tune in to hear all about making this grindhouse flick, working with Quentin Tarantino, and how her love for the horror genre led to becoming a commentator on Shudder’s docuseries, “Behind the Monsters.”
Ep 80: Red Snow Gives Us Nightmares
Circus geeks or holiday bloodsuckers? Take your pick from the two movies we discuss this week. “Nightmare Alley” (2021) gave us an all-star cast, a chicken beheading, a bathtub HJ, and the desire to never want psychic abilities. While “Red Snow” had a “Misery + Vampires” feel to it, with a cute bloodsucker wearing outfits Annie Wilkes would be proud of.
Ep 79: Interview w/Larry Zerner from “F13 Pt 3”
As lovable prankster Shelly in “Friday the 13th Part 3,” Larry Zerner is the only franchise star who donned the iconic hockey mask before Jason Voorhees. Tune in to hear all about filming this sequel, the challenges of capturing everything for 3D, and the incredible story behind how he was discovered and handpicked for this role.
Ep 78: Interview w/Kristen Cloke from “Black Christmas” (2006) & “Final Destination”
Kristen Cloke battled two sadistic killers with an eyeball fetish in “Black Christmas” (2006), but fell prey to a lethal combination of vodka, a computer, and a knife block in “Final Destination.” Tune in to hear all about making these enduring thrillers, what the studio changed in “Black Christmas,” and how her extensive “Final Destination” death scene was filmed.
Ep 77: Have Yourself an Apocalyptic Christmas
Some people like their holidays filled with tidings of comfort and joy. We, on the other hand, prefer murder, mayhem, and end-of-the-world madness! Tune in to hear us take you through “Silent Night” (2021) and “The Advent Calendar,” two new holiday horror films that are less cheery and more dreary — perfect for those screaming of a fright(ful) Christmas.
Ep 76: Interview w/Suzanne Snyder from “Killer Klowns,” “ROTLD II” and more
Big hair, big clowns, bloodthirsty zombies? Sounds like a Suzanne Snyder ‘80s film! Tune in to hear what it was like being in some of the most unique genre films of the ‘80s, from working with John Hughes in “Weird Science,” to being trapped in a huge circus balloon in “Killer Klowns From Outer Space,” to kissing Thom Mathews in “Return of the Living Dead Part II.”
