    Hello, Boys and Ghouls

    Hello, Boys and Ghouls

    Answering listener questions is the focus of this informative episode of “Boys and Ghouls”.  Plus, continuing the topic of communication, we take a look at telephones and their use in horror.  So, listen in as we touch on such phone-heavy films as “976-EVIL”, “Dial M For Murder”, “Murder by Phone” (aka “Bells”) as well as “Sorry, Wrong Number” and the chilling 1940’s radio play that it was based on.
     
    Then, discover what Kat and Marshall have to say when asked a variety of listener-submitted questions from, “If you could spend one day with a horror icon who would you pick to be your best friend for a day?” to “What are your top three favorite original-series Twilight Zone episodes?” to “How did you two meet?”
     
    So, take the phone off the hook and please join us for our longest episode EVER (an unprecedented nearly two hours).

    Legacy of Dracula

    Legacy of Dracula

    Dracula movies through the years, inspired and encouraged by the original novel and the 1931 movie, is the topic of this long awaited episode of Boys and Ghouls.
     
     
    Listen in as Kat and Marshall focus in on a few of those Dracula films.  Including; Horror of Dracula (1958) the first of the Hammer Dracula franchise, Dracula (1979) the under appreciated effort with Frank Langella as the Count, Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992) directed by Francis Ford Coppola, and Blacula (1971) where Dracula’s curse injects classic horror into the blaxploitation genre.

    Dracula

    Dracula

    Dracula, from the Bram Stoker novel of 1897 to the 1931 Universal film (and its Spanish counterpart), is the subject of this bloody 75th episode of Boys and Ghouls.  
     
    Listen in as Kat and Marshall explore the long road that Dracula took, from an epistolary novel to a hit of the London stage, to an early talkie that proved to depression-era Hollywood that horror was worth investing in.
     
    This will be the first part of a two-part Dracula exploration, going up to when, with Bela Lugosi as the secret ingredient, the icon of Dracula was cemented.  The next episode will be The Legacy of Dracula and take in the many ways Dracula has appeared on screen and all over our culture.
     
    Enjoy!

    Night of the Living Dead

    Night of the Living Dead

    George Romero and a small group of aspiring filmmakers spent their summer making a horror movie about flesh-eating ghouls and the ordinary people trying to fend them off.  That movie became “Night of the Living Dead” and it created a new kind of horror genre and a new kind of movie monster… THE ZOMBIE.
     
    Listen in as the Boys and Ghouls duo discuss how this landmark movie came to be.  You’ll GASP as we discuss what a low budget movie this was.  You’ll THRILL as we examine the casting of an African American in the lead of a horror movie in racially tumultuous 1967.  And SHUDDER as we let you know just what it was the zombies were really eating.
     
    Enjoy!
