Happy Horror Time is hosted by Tim Murdock & Matt Emert – two off-the-wall gay guys who LOVE scary movies! We discuss new horror films (spoiling everything along the way) and interview horror stars & insiders. We're unpolished, unscripted, and a ton of fun!
Ep 136: Interview w/Marsha Dietlein from “Return of the Living Dead Part II”
As Lucy in this horror comedy sequel, Marsha Dietlein embodied all the qualities needed to survive an 80s horror movie — she was resourceful, level-headed, and boy did she know her way around a shotgun! Tune in to hear all about making “Return of the Living Dead Part II,” what it was like shooting a zombie in half, and which co-stars were most like their characters in real life.
Ep 135: COVID Killers & An Artsy Thriller
This week the two horror flicks we discuss couldn’t be more different in terms of tone, speed, and toys on the ceiling. “Sick” is a fast-paced slasher film set during the pandemic with action and chase scenes aplenty, while “Skinamarink” very slowly weaves in some of the most nightmarish visuals we barely could see.
Ep 134: Interview w/Russell Todd from "F13 Pt 2" & "Chopping Mall"
As one of the hunks of horror, Russell Todd brought smoldering good looks and memorable performances to slasher films like “Friday the 13th Part 2” and “Chopping Mall.” Tune in to hear all about his experience making both of these 80s flicks, how an Oscar winner helped him land his first job at Universal Studios, and what it was like being killed hanging upside down in not one, but TWO different horror movies!
Ep 133: You're M3GAN Me Crazy
The titular character in “M3GAN” is a stylish robot that uses AI to pair with humans (and to cut a b*tch’s throat if she has to). Tune in as we dedicate the entire episode to discussing this amusing horror flick — from M3GAN’s best lines, to the film’s overarching message, and of course that dance everyone’s been talking about since the trailer debuted!
Ep 132: The Nanny Train
We were shocked (and impressed) when we found out that Tubi was releasing a sequel to their “Terror Train” remake just TWO MONTHS LATER! But was “Terror Train 2” on track with the original or did it lose steam? Tune in to find out, along with our thoughts on “Nanny” — a psychological thriller with a message… and a mermaid.
Ep 131: Interview w/Steven LaMorte, Director of “The Mean One”
Steven LaMorte not only succeeded in turning a famous holiday tale into a Hallmark-style slasher, but he brought his indie horror film into theaters nationwide! Tune in to hear all about making “The Mean One,” transforming David Howard Thornton (Art the Clown in the “Terrifier” movies) into another iconic villain, and his thoughts on where he would/could take a sequel.
Omg you guys I’m so obsessed with this podcast. Tim and Matt are such amazing hosts and are so so funny. I love their spoiler filled discussions and their enjoyable interviews. I freaking crack up whenever Matt says “trawma” and love it every time Tim brings up Bea Arthur. Keep up the amazing work!!
Just discovered and getting into this podcast. It’s refreshing to listen to people talk about horror that isn’t pretentious and looks at the fun side of the genre. Funny (and cute) hosts that make it an absolute blast.
I enjoy listening to their podcast I love all the 80s cast podcast they’ve done and great 80s horror movies they talk about
