Join our guest, Roxanne Guarino (Cinema Insomnia with Mr. Lobo), author of the new zine The Craziest Movies You NeverSaw, as we discuss the growing lost media culture, legendary "Holy Grails" of horror and cult, and our own favorite cinematic lost causes.

    Episode 119-Death or Glory: SOV Horror (Tape Two)

     

    Welcome to "Tape Two" of S.O.V. (shot on video) movies that prove that Horror is the Punk Rock of Cinema!
    For decades, fans made movies without Hollywood, money, or distribution deals. Following the DIY ethos, regional horror movies sprung up everywhere and told crazy, original, and personal stories and created a subculture.
    Just like punk rock did! 
    Join me as I curate a list of movies that show the diversity of SOV movies, how filmmakers worked out personal traumas by creating, and how SOV gave a legendary director one last chance to be heard!
    I hope you enjoy the show!

Great content and a must listen for Horror fans

Really enjoyed this podcast right from the first episode. Not only does S A Bradley cover my favorite genre, he talks in a way that makes you feel like your right there with him in the same room. Very well done show and look forward to more.

Sad…

Used to love it. Now the episodes are few and far between, depend on what guests are appearing and the storytelling that I loved is gone. So disappointing. Your book is great but you can’t lean on that forever.
