    Horror Movie Podcast Ep. 187: 28 More 2019 Horror Films For Your Consideration – LIVE!

    Horror Movie Podcast Ep. 187: 28 More 2019 Horror Films For Your Consideration – LIVE!

    Attention all horror fans, we’ve got a possible 187 at Horror Movie Podcast! Episode 187, that is. Every year around this time we play clean-up, trading Mini Review punches on a monster-sized Frankensteinian episode, trying to catch up with any notable horror movies we may have missed, before compiling our Top 10 Horror Movies lists for the year. As was noted by Jay of the Dead on the first such episode: In the music world, when guitarists alternate riffs, it’s called Cutting Heads. And so here we are: Dr. Shock, Wolfman Josh, and Gillman Joel, cutting heads once again with 28 More 2019 Horror Films For You Consideration, including Bliss (2019), Braid (2019), Climax (2019), Doctor Sleep (2019), Knife+Heart (2019), The Nightingale (2019), Parasite (2019), Tigers Are Not Afraid (2019), and so much more!

    But this time, we are doing things a little differently. This show also happens to be a test-run for something we hope to be doing once a month in 2020. We recorded the show “LIVE!” meaning no redos, retakes, or do-overs. Just one take and the conversation will take us where it takes us. The only thing we’ll do differently in the future is to take into account your live listener feedback! That’s right, because we’ll be recording the show on a platform like YouTubeLive or Twitch, you will be able to listen to the show live (if you so choose) and actually message us during the show. We’re excited about this approach to our Frankensteinian shows in the future and we would love your feedback. And to you Boomers in the audience: Don’t worry. The show will still post to iTunes’ Apple Podcasts (or your favorite podcatching software) as usual. You won’t have to do anything different to listen to the show you know and love. Let us know what you think!

    Check out this blog post to learn how to submit your Top 10 Horror Movies of 2019 list.

    Welcome to HORROR MOVIE PODCAST, where we’re Dead Serious About Horror Movies… Episode 186 is a monster-sized ZOMbie COMedy PHENOMENON episode, where your horror hosts—Wolfman Josh, Dr. Shock, and Gillman Joel—set the table with a massive, Thanksgiving-sized themed discussion, covering dozens upon dozens of ZomComs in Micro-Review form. That’s followed by a main course of new release Feature Reviews of  Zombieland: Double Tap (2019), Little Monsters (2019), and Jim Jarmusch’s The Dead Don’t Die (2019). Next, we have a special SHUDDER–Sponsored Screaming Online segment, with an extremely enthusiastic review of One Cut of the Dead (2019)!

If you have any BRRRAAAAIIIIINNNS! at all, you’ll stick around.

    Horror Movie Podcast is typically bi-weekly show that is only releasing one episode during the month of November due to post-Halloween burnout. We’ll be back to two shows per month in December.
