SPLATHOUSE75: House on Haunted Hill (A Tribute to Vincent Price)
Are you interested in the strange and the macabre? If so, we have just the show for you. Join Sarah and Mike D. as they discuss the life and work of legendary horror performer (and renaissance man) Vincent Price; one of the most acclaimed American actors of the mid-20th century. While most recognize Vincent Price as the face of so many "schlocky" horror pictures from the 60s and 70s, few know how deep his love for all art ran. The conversation spans his early life in turn of the century Missouri through his celebrated years in Hollywood, highlighting not just his best known works (House on Haunted Hill, The Poe Picture Cycle, Batman 66) but also his time as a larger than life personality and his side hustle as a respected fine art academic. Join us, won't you?
House on Haunted Hill (1959) will be the subject of the next episode of Slumber Party Sleepover so head over to YouTube and subscribe to SPLATHOUSE PRODUCTIONS today so you won't miss your mandated fun.

Don't miss it!
There are so many low-effort, yammering, back-and-forth cookie cutter podcasts out there, which is why it's so refreshing to see (and hear!) SPLATHOUSE knock it out of the park with their unique explorations of cult cinema. If you love movies, you need to subscribe. If you hate movies, why are you even reading this?
Ambition is NOT a Dirty Word
There are a lot of film podcasts to wade through on the webs; and they certainly aren't created equal. Most are talking heads, and mileage may vary - some of the very best are just exchanges between a group of people, and the worst use the same template to diminishing effect. The Splathouse, however, are looking to carve out their own unique corner in the podcast realm. A collective of actors, directors and personalities from California, The Splathouse Podcast offers up variety for the attention deprived. Interviews? You bet. But how about a reenactment of say, a scene, or a quiz show, based on that week's film? Splathouse goes for a more immersive podcast experience; and way more often than not, they hit the mark. Check them out! It's not like you have anything else going on.
