A franchise podcast for the Horror Completionist. Hosts James Strayer and John C Meyers talk and analyze their way film by film through horror's longest running franchises. How do they evolve? What do new filmmakers bring when a franchise is several films deep? Usually, they start out great but perhaps 6- 8 entries in... they start to hurt a bit. Music by Michael Arthur Holloway and logo by Ethan Kimberling.
Pet Semetary (2019)
Can John Lithgow save this remake? Does the big Switcharoo work?
Pet Semetary 2
Talk about a tonal shift- we go from the dread inducing folk horror of the first one to the unabashed B movie schlock of part 2. All worth it for Clancy Brown. AND! Check out our contest announcement at the top.
We dive into our first Stephen King adaptation. Biggest takeaway- everyone needs a Judd to have a beer with at the end of the day. But is he the biggest villain of the movie? What differences from the book are we into and not?
Pumpkinhead Wrap Up
We come to the end of the patch and discuss all four films and how they relate and grow... or wilt... into a franchise. Which was your favorite? Have a favorite kill? Favorite... Vengance Seeker? And stay tuned to hear what we'll be covering next.
Bonus episode- Halloween Horror 2023 picks
We are joined again by friend of the show Michael Holloway to discuss what (non franchise) horror movies we've been watching for the Halloween season.
Pumpkinhead 4: Blood Feud
We attempt to find... anything interesting to talk about in the fourth Pumpkinhead film. I think we'll be happy to leave this series in the pumpkin patch.
Fun for horror fans
I’d been looking for a good horror movie podcast for a while, and this one finally scratched that itch. These guys have good chemistry and are really easy to listen to for hours on end.
A really entertaining and knowledgeable podcast about horror films. So great hearing the Hollywood Theatre in Portland being mentioned. I immediately followed show after listening to 3rd ep about Friday part 3D!
