Absolutely Engaging!

When it comes to horror-review podcasting, it doesn't get much better than The Anatomy of Fear Horror Podcast. Hosts Brandon and Allen know this genre inside and out, and they give listeners the reviews to back that up. This show offers a fun, intellectual look at the movies we love, and you simply MUST do yourself a favor and download every show these guys have to offer!

Much love from Mister Watson!

JakobHysteria ,

Intelligent without being pompous

The two of them have a fairly good understanding of how to break down a film. The fact they both have a love for the horror genre is reflected in the way they talk about individual movies. They can get slightly off topic but they end up bringing it back around, almost connecting their off track to the topic at hand. The episodes are a bit on the longer side but I feel as they become more comfortable with doing this podcast, that the episodes will be tighter. Good points made by both on movies they review, and I can’t disagree with the technical criticism they give on the movies.

Cool show so far

I really like it so far. Just two guys casually discussing horror with no gimmicks or bad language, and examining films and topics a little deeper than most. Looking forward to more.
