Every episode Andrew Graves and Rich Johnson examine a bizarre cult horror film from somewhere around the world.

    31: ZOMBIE HOLOCAUST (1980) Meat and Greet - 28/05/2020

    31: ZOMBIE HOLOCAUST (1980) Meat and Greet - 28/05/2020

    On this episode, Andrew Graves and Rich Johnson travel to yet another mysterious island in search of the undead, cannibals, and some mad doctor who looks like the crack-den version of Harvey Keitel. Marino Girolami's Zombie Holocaust is an early eighties piece of Italian exploitation cinema, which borrows heavily from both Zombie Flesh Eaters and Cannibal Holocaust, but will the duo find it a satisfying meal, or discover they’ve bitten off more than they can chew. The pair will also look at Millennial British horror The Cottage, in Charity Chainsaw. You Have been warned.

    30: TALES THAT WITNESS MADNESS (1973) The Wood, the Bad and the Ugly - 27/04/2020

    30: TALES THAT WITNESS MADNESS (1973) The Wood, the Bad and the Ugly - 27/04/2020

    On this episode, Andrew Graves and Rich Johnson wander unwisely into the world of Tales that Witness Madness, where they fall in love with a tree trunk, get taken back to past on a penny farthing and then get eaten by an imaginary tiger. Together they explore the history of the portmanteau horror film, examine Dead of Night, Amicus and American offerings like Creepshow and Twilight Zone the Movie, and ponder the appeal of these daft little films. They also toy with 1988 slasher, Child’s Play in Charity Chainsaw. You have been warned.

    29: VAMPYR (1932) Pantomime Dane - 11/04/20

    29: VAMPYR (1932) Pantomime Dane - 11/04/20

    On this episode, Andrew Graves and Rich Johnson sleepwalk their way into the Danish nightmare that is Vampyr(1932). The film, directed by Carl Dreyer, is a sort of semi-silent waking dream full of off-kilter images, and unlike many American productions it is less influenced by German expressionism than it is more abstract movements like surrealism and Dada. But will this thirties piece still feel fresh or should it be left to rot in the shadowy graveyard? The Mondo team will also re-examine the often-overlooked Hitchcock production, Stage Fright(1950) in regular feature Charity Chainsaw. You have been warned.

    28: MONDO MOVIEHOUSE MEETS KIDS TELLY - 13/03/2020

    28: MONDO MOVIEHOUSE MEETS KIDS TELLY - 13/03/2020

    It’s the first of our special episodes. On this one, Rich Johnson and Andrew Graves explore the weird twilight world where children’s programming and horror cross over in an unpredictably twisted fashion. Welcome to MONDO MOVIEHOUSE MEETS KIDS TELLY. Expect a robot bigfoot, a warped scarecrow, and a soggy old cloth cat. Are you sitting uncomfortably? Good, then we’ll begin…

    27: TOMBS OF THE BLIND DEAD (1972) Splatter Day Knight Fever - 14/02/20

    27: TOMBS OF THE BLIND DEAD (1972) Splatter Day Knight Fever - 14/02/20

    On this episode, Andrew Graves and Rich Johnson go on an ill-advised Portuguese holiday and wind up playing slow motion cat and mouse with some seriously dodgy undead Knights Templar. Amando de Ossorio’s Tombs of the Blind Dead is a dusty, 1970s relic from a dying Franco era Spain. Though vaguely anti-establishment, its political social commentary is often overshadowed by its blood thirsty misogyny and (of the era) attitudes to sexual violence, yet the wonderfully realised central mummified religious order of the film, provide us with one of the creepiest and genuinely scary set of monsters ever to have entered our collective cinematic psyche.  But what will the team make of it? The pair also examine seminal slasher Friday the 13th (1980) in Charity Chainsaw and answer listener questions in Mail from the Crypt. You Have been warned.

    26: SOCIETY (1989) You Terrible Shunt - 24/01/20

    26: SOCIETY (1989) You Terrible Shunt - 24/01/20

    On this episode, Andrew Graves and Rich Johnson blag their way into the social elite and end up getting closer to the 1% than is humanly healthy. Brian Yuzna’s Society is both throwaway teen horror comedy and dark anti-capitalist satire, combining Baywatch style aesthetics with grimly sadistic special effects by Japanese gore guru Screaming Mad George, but will the pair dub the film to be full of rich pickings or just another poverty row disgrace? The regular Mondo team will also examine 1953s House of Wax in Charity Chainsaw and give listener questions a good going over. You have been warned.
