A podcast dedicated to the most reviled of horror subgenres - the slasher movie from the people behind Hysteria Lives! and The Bodycount Continues. Reviews, retrospectives and more! Includes some brief strong language and spoilers.
296) The Clown at Midnight (1998)
A group of teens clean up a deserted theatre, but raise the wrath of a killer clown lurking in the basement in this late 90s Canadian slasher - that was originally intended to be an 80s production. Plus, recently seen, Erik's joke of the week and so much more!
295) Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation (1994)
Leatherface is back - and this time he's looking fierce! Kim Henkel returns to his old stomping group with this totally gonzo entry - with a couple of soon-to-be Hollywood superstars in tow. Plus, recently seen, Erik's joke of the week and so much more!
294) Trick or Treats (1982)
The trick could be on us as we cover this, er, unusual Halloween set slasher. A ditzy babysitter, an annnoying fat kid and an escaped loon in a nurse's uniform collide in this supposed black comedy. Plus, recently seen, Erik's joke of the week and so much more!
293) Psycho III (1986)
Back to the Bates Motel in the second sequel to Hitchcock's seminal PSYCHO. This time mother is off her rocker - and so is Norman! Sleazy, gonzo fun with Perkins in the director's seat. Plus, recently seen, Erik's joke of the week and so much more!
292) Strait-Jacket (1964)
Joan Crawford is back and this time she's got an axe! We have fun with William Castle's campy, and thorughly entertaining, proto-slasher. Plus, recently seen, Erik's joke of the week and so much more!
291) Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III (1990)
Third time around for the ever expanding Sawyer clan and their power tool collection. Feel the buzz! Plus, recently seen, Erik's joke of the week and so much more!
May the commentaries continue
I first heard you guys on 88 Films’ commentary for the marvellous Eyeball. I’ve never met anyone who’s enjoyed that film, let alone loved it as much as me.
I have been smashing through the podcast (I have much to catch up on), and you have me in stitches every episode.
I watched Rawhead Rex this week and, surprise surprise, there you are again! I often blind buy blu rays because it contains a Kim Newman or Kat Ellinger audio commentary. Hysteria Continues commentaries are now also a reason for me to add a film to the collection. What’s your favourite commentary you’ve recorded?
As a horror fan who grew up during the nasties era I’m always checking out podcasts to find my one favourite . Well after binge listening to this one I have to rank it at the top . What a great bunch of guys . I’ve loved every episode . Also speaking as a 47 year old man with a bit of a Toya crush I find this podcast to be at the very epitome of slasher sophistication .
Love this podcast
I listen to a lot of horror podcasts and this is way up there. The hosts are really fun to listen to and dive deep into some of my favourite films. Love the RuPaul, Toya and Siouxsie and the Banshees quotes. Really pleased to stumble across a quality podcast with loads of episodes. Keep up the good work guys
