The New World Pictures Podcast is dedicated to every movie released by New World Pictures. We talk about the things we loved and the things we hated along with the detailed history of each film's history and production.
Founded by the infamous Roger Corman, New World Pictures was responsible for the greatest genre and exploitation films of the 1970's and 1980's. Remember all those movies that lived proudly in the Action, Horror, Comedy and Sci-Fi isles of the video store? Titles like Death Race 2000, Hellraiser, Heathers and Piranha. They were all made by New World Pictures.
In addition to talking about the films themselves, we talk with the Writers, Producers and Directors who worked with New World Pictures.
Nearly New World: Warlock: The Armageddon
We begin DIEcember, a celebration of the horror movies made by New World Pictures, with a movie that nearly made it into New World's history: 1992's WARLOCK: THE ARMAGEDDON directed by the late Anthony Hickox (HELLRAISER III: HELL ON EARTH) and starring the late Julian Sands in his second go-around as Satan's son. This time around, the Warlock has some new adversaries in the form of two teenage Druid warriors who train to face the evil Warlock by making baseballs fly through the air and befriending squirrels. Along the way, we discuss THE GREAT OUTDOORS, growing up on a film set, and the delicious menu at Black Angus! Get ready for DIEcember, because this is only the beginning!
Nearly New World: Night of the Creeps (1986)
We push the limits of what we mean by "nearly New World" with this bonus episode where we talk about 1986 classic, Night of the Creeps starring Jason Lively (Blake's brother), Jill Whitlow (not related to the Lively family) and Tom Atkins in the role he was destined to play.
Ep. 103: Night of the Cobra Woman
Are we STILL talking about Night Zoo?! Spoiler alert, we are! We continue #NIGHTvember with 1972’s Night of the Cobra Woman. Monkeys, eagles, and, believe it or not, cobras! Oh my, you say, oh yessssssss, we say! So settle in, chill out, and don't forget to milk Movini before watching this thrilling, bizarre, choose your own adventure directed by Andrew Meyer, a dark film that spends the majority of its time focusing on the night and very little time at a zoo...ooopsie STILL talking about Night Zoo! You'll have to listen and decide for yourself what happened to Dirk, Duff, Joanna and what it truly means to spend a night with the Cobra Woman!
Ep. 102: Night Zoo
We continue #NIGHTvember with 1987's Night Zoo. With a title like Night Zoo, you'd expect a fun, family comedy. Maybe something along the lines of Night at the Museum. Spoiler alert! You would be wrong. Dead Wrong.
Ep. 101: Night Patrol
Welcome to #NIGHTvember where we will spend the month talking about movies with "night" in the title! Kicking off our month of night is the wacky, chaotic comedy by director Jackie Kong, Night Patrol! Join us on our pursuit of what works in this film, including special shout outs to Linda Blair, the Unknown Comic, and an Erica favorite, - showbiz agent character! We toss out our usual show structure and follow the trail of wherever the night (patrol) takes us! We promise no animals were harmed in the recording of this podcast.

Bonus Episode: Ranking the La Casa Franchise
We close out #VIDtober with our ranking of Italy's much beloved La Casa franchise. A franchise that shares the podium with such greats as The Godfather 1-3 and Star Wars.
Fantastic and Fun
This podcast covers every movie from New World Pictures and the hosts are hilarious but what is the true test is that this podcast has had me watching movies before the podcast to enjoy it even more. Eagerly anticipating the movie event Steamin’!
The BEST podcast (on this subject)
Hosts Ryan, Erica, and Mark do an excellent job balancing information and entertainment. Their respect for the people involved in these movies is fantastic. I’ve heard every episode and highly recommend it!
