    Horror Movie Podcast Ep. 196: The Real-Life Horrors of Racism, plus Color Out of Space (2020), Extra Ordinary (2020), Gretel & Hansel (2020) and VFW (2020)

    Episode 196 of HORROR MOVIE PODCAST was initially intended to be a run-of-the-mill Frankensteinian episode, but then the real life horrors or racism came crashing in and plans had to change. Wolfman Josh, Dr. Shock, and Gillman Joel are still posting our original reviews of Color Out of Space (2020), Extra Ordinary (2020), Gretel & Hansel (2020), and VFW (2020), to give you some relief from the everyday difficulties our world is facing—plus some discussion of the FX series What We Do in the Shadows (2019) and made-for-TV horror anthology Dead of Night (1977)—but we’ve also invited some very special guests from the horror community to talk about their experiences as black Americans in the wake of George Floyd’s murder and the ensuing Black Lives Matter protests against police violence. We hope you’ll receive these guests warmly and follow their work to show your support and appreciation. Our guests for this episode (in order of appearance) are:

    Horror Movie Podcast Ep. 195: Cursed Films (2020) with Filmmaker Jay Cheel

    BEWARE! Rumor has it that Episode 195 of HORROR MOVIE PODCAST is CURSED! I heard it’s because Gillman Joel sold his soul to the City of Orlando, the skeletons in Dr. Shock’s closet are actually real human skeletons imported from India(na), and Wolfman Josh has fleas. That last one is maybe more a result of the curse, than the cause. Anyway, in this special Shudder-Sponsored Screaming Online episode of HMP, your curs-ed horror hosts bring you a discussion of the Shudder Original series, Cursed Films (2020), as well as an interview with Jay Cheel, the creator, director, producer, writer and editor of Cursed Films, and one of the hosts of the legendary Film Junk podcast (as well as Wolfman’s former documentary podcasting partner).

    We also briefly celebrate our recent win of the “Silver Bolo Award” from Joe Bob Briggs and Darcy the Mail Girl on The Last Drive In.

The perfect Podcast

These three gentlemen are outstanding hosts. I hold all three of them in the highest regard! I especially love how relatable they are, I.E. they’re not afraid to say “I haven’t seen that one” or “I picked that up, but still haven’t watched it” I also love hearing stories from their youth and how it relates to the film they’re discussing, like the dates that didn’t like Army of Darkness, etc. I appreciate the amount of work they put into each episode. It has really helped me keep my sanity during the pandemic. A hearty thank you to HMP, I’m dead serious when I say I appreciate you all.

Best Horror Movie Podcast

Horror Movie Podcast is a fantastic show with three hosts who really know their stuff. They are articulate, knowledgeable and engaging and at times, downright hilarious. This podcast makes my long ride to and from work something to look forward to. If you're a horror fan, this podcast is the best of the best.

Best. Horror. Podcast.

Thank you Joel, Josh & Dave!

Listen to this show - you won’t regret it!

I discovered HMP aka ‘The Best Horror Podcast’ on my way down to my parents place in rural NC over the Christmas Holiday 2019. I listened to the Top 10 Horror Movies Of The 1980s in my car on the drive down....at night...down a deserted highway....alongside the Dismal Swamp Canal....alone in the car....just the dog and me....it was amazing! When horror is your happy place, that’s the best kind of car ride! I was immediately hooked.

Since then, I’ve binged pretty much every episode back to the beginning. Every car ride, every house cleaning, every dog walk, I was listening to y’all discuss (sometimes argue and debate) my favorite genre. I didn’t think anyone could give me a new horror movie to watch, I thought I’d seen them all, but I’m almost always jotting down a title or two to look up later.
Lately, in our country, it feels like we are living out the plot of some real life horror movie and it’s been wonderfully therapeutic to escape into this world.

Horror has been my favorite genre as far back as I can remember. It’s awesome listening to people who seem to love it just as much as I do! I can’t say enough good things about this show. If you love horror, you HAVE to listen. Even if you just like horror - listen to these guys so you find out the right ones to watch. The guests are great too! I mean who has a cetologist on when talking about sea monster movies? These guys!

Thanks again. Know that y’all are TRULY appreciated. Keep up the great work you do on this show!
