Episode 42: Alternative 1970s American Horror – THE SEQUEL, feat. Bill Ackerman of Supporting Characters (1 of 2‪)‬ Genre Grinder

    • TV & Film

THE SUMMER OF LOVE GIVES WAY TO PERVERSE MELODRAMAS, BLOODY HOME INVASIONS, NECROPHILIC HOUSEWIVES, AND…CARNIVOROUS BEDS?
 
After Night of the Living Dead (1968), but before the slasher boom of the early ‘80s, American horror went through one of its most creative and influential eras. But, for every Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974), Carrie (1976), and Halloween (1978), there were dozens of under-the-radar oddities that took years – sometimes decades – to be recognized by cult audiences for their unique contributions to American horror. Join Gabe and special guest Bill Ackerman of the Supporting Characters podcast and numerous Blu-ray commentary tracks as they explore more independent horror films from the era.
 
This year’s batch begins with Ken Friedman’s’ Death by Invitation (1971), Jacques Lacerte’s Love Me Deadly (1972), Robert J. Emery’s My Brother Has Bad Dreams (1972), George Barry’s Death Bed: The Bed That Eats (1977), and Bill Gunns Ganja & Hess (1973). Stay tuned for six more titles in Part 2, live early next month.
