Special: Blacula (BLM cont.)
Continuing on from our Black Lives Matter episode, Nasty Pasty tackles another blaxploitation film by a black director: William Crain’s seminal horror Blacula from 1972. And for the first time ever, we have a guest on the podcast. Join me and Jonny Larkin from Screaming Queenz podcast as we sink our teeth into another influential piece of film-making.
Special: Black Lives Matter
In solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement, Nasty Pasty interrupts its schedule to bring you three influential exploitation horror movies directed by black directors. Providing some context of current events and events of the 70s, Nasty Pasty hopes to kickstart a train of thought about the plight our brothers and sisters are suffering through at the moment.
Minisode 1: Home for the Holidays
A family reunion goes all kinds of awry when the reception is frosty, Daddy’s being apparently poisoned and a pitchfork-wielding maniac is offing the Christmas guests. Tuck in to the Nasty Pasty’s yuletide return as we cover the 1972 TV horror Home for the Holidays!
Episode 72: Gialloween
Nasty Pasty returns for a one-off special, with two sumptuous giallo pictures to spook out your Halloween! Join the rancorous horror fan once more for 1971’s Black Belly of the Tarantula and 1983’s A Blade in the Dark!
Episode 71: Coprophagia Films
We bid farewell to the Nasty Pasty podcast in our final episode! Two years of hard work has sadly come to an end, and what way to go out with a bang than to cover two foul fetid films which deal with the express act of eating turds! Join us for a scatological delving into utter depravity and filth, with Pier Paolo Pasolini’s Salo, The 120 Days of Sodom, and Thierry Zeno’s experimental Wedding Trough! Thank you to everyone for making this possible, and farewell!

One of the best
One of the best horror podcasts, currently on hiatus but at least popping back for Halloween
Informative and witty
I thought I'd seen it all! And then Mr Roberts and his Nasty Pasty podcast reminded me just how much horror/genre content was out there I haven't seen. His enthusastic and funny reviews always make me want to go out and watch the films he's covering - or if I've seen them before I want to give them a rewatch. Nice to see another podcast with a camp touch revelling in the genre too. Particularly enjoyed his episodes on Don't Look Now and Live Like a Cop Die Like A Man but they're all a hoot, highly recommended.
Freshly baked with a rich meaty filling
With so many horror movie podcasts out there, and a limited amount of time for me to listen, I have to be very selective in which ones I follow. When The Nasty Pasty Podcast released its first episode, I thought it sounded interesting, so I gave it a try. And as soon as I finished listening, I clicked the subscribe button. That does not happen very often, believe me!
This is a show that's well-produced, and presented by an enthusiastic host who clearly knows his stuff. You can tell he's put a lot of work into researching the two films, and all this information is put across in an engaging and accessible way. Rather than directing most of the focus on plot synopses, Andrew also gives us a much broader picture. He talks about the movies' backgrounds, the social context for the time they were released, their significance to the genre, as well as behind the scenes information and his own views. And all done in a way that's easy to listen to, and left me wanting more.
This is a really impressive start to a very interesting new podcast. So, if horror movies are your thing, and you'd like to expand your knowledge as well, I recommend you give The Nasty Pasty Podcast a try.
