The Mahoney ,

Fun stuff

Very entertaining, twice-weekly, packed with energy, fun facts and a genuine enthusiasm for the genre.

PEPGOONER ,

Too much filler

I wanted to like this but the first episode I played…. The first 20 minutes was taken up with adverts. By the time they started talking about the film I was interested in I had lost interest.
Shame, as I’m always keen to listen to monster movie discussions.

Tartan Jeff ,

Monster Fun

Cracking reviews of 50s/60s Horror movies , with a special focus on monsters ( the clue is in the title ) . Great stuff .
