Delightful Horror Pod
I stumbled upon this podcast this summer and it is a PERFECT addition to my horror review pod rotations. This definitely is in my top listens. I really enjoy having each episode walked through as “the best “ because in Horror there is something for everyone. The host is knowledgeable about the films and has good chemistry with his guests. Keep up the great work!!
Great podcast that occasionally is tainted by an unprepared guest
The positivity of having a guest talk about their favorite horror film is amazing and definitely feels fresh when so much content is geared towards negativity.
The only issue that I have comes from some of the guests which state they’re not really horror fans and they don’t have knowledgeable of how basic film structures work. Now you don’t have to be a huge horror fan (just appreciate the genre) and you don’t have to be a critic/filmmaker (but have an understanding of the process). This is clear in the Slither episode where the guest constantly says how it actually isn’t that great and how it’s problematic nowadays. You can say a film has flaws or is problematic by modern standards However, the constant commentary of it not being good leaves us wondering why he chose it or at least find someone to talk about the movie who has a little more passion for the project. Also by not understanding the culture when it was made and using phrases like how we just want more from our art now (opposed to 2006) is incredibly ignorant, not only the horror genre but cinema in general.
George doesn’t do this and he’s great in every episode. It just feels like some of these guests are there purely because they’re friends with the host or maybe they have a slight social media following to boost the listener count but ultimately these couple of guests have nothing to contribute.
Fun Take On Horror
This podcast is a lot of fun, and it’s an interesting concept and delivery. Always a new guest with fresh perspective. If you like horror films, you have to check it out!
