Every week we discuss the best horror movie ever made... according to our guest, at least.
Misery with Kelly McAndee
This week - get me one cigarette and a bottom of Dom Perignon, because Kelly McAndee is in the Horror House to talk about the Stephen King classic that grounds the terror in his own psyche, Misery!We talk about alternate casting choices, the death of Richard Bachman, and break the case wide open on if James Caan's role in Elf was secretly Paul Sheldon.

Witches of Eastwick with Joan Haley Ford
This week in the Best Little Horror House, a stranger has blown into town... and it's the delightful Joan Haley Ford, here to talk about her pick for the best horror movie ever made, The Witches of Eastwick! We talk about the improvements from the book, the progressive themes, and wax poetic about how great Veronica Cartwright is even among a cast featuring Cher, Susan Sarandon, Michelle Pfeiffer and Jack Nicholson! Don't miss this one!
Dr. Strangelove with Peter Hayashi
When this episode releases it will be election week, and here at the Best Little Horror House in Philly we felt it was appropriate to celebrate the horrific state of American politics with a governmentally inclined episode about the movie Kubrick himself called a "nightmare-comedy", Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. We talk about what makes it so horrific, how it holds up today, the incredible performances and much more in an effort to signal boost the satire and hopefully get people to vote for a more peaceful future. Enjoy!
Cube with Film Rage
This week on the Best Little Horror House in Philly, we're working with our friends at Film Rage on the All The Horror charity drive - an October event that raises money for the Scares that Care charity (scaresthatcare.org).To that end, since it was a repeat visitor, we decided to talk about a movie that *I* love, and since they're from the great white north, we decided to talk about my favorite Canadian horror movie - Cube, from 1997!We also talk about their love for the Cronenbergs, if you'd rather get bitten by a zombie that was your friend or a stranger, and of course, much much more. Check it out!(PS: I just appeared on their show as well! Go check it out to hear me lament two of the worst horror movies I've ever seen, Verotika and The Devil's Revenge. And they made me watch both in one week... trying to kill me, I think.)

Customer ReviewsSee All
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.
