TV TERROR explores television's darker corridors: classic shows like The Twilight Zone and Night Gallery, and the Movie-of-the-Week golden age that gave us telefilms like Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, Salem's Lot, and The Night Stalker. We've got a penchant for those nearly-forgotten treasures of the tube, and this is where we share our discoveries. So, grab your remote and a wooden stake and join us, won't you?

EP115: Lizzie Revizzy: Legend of Lizzie Borden (1975) with Special Guest
I'm joined by special guest Patricia D to discuss THE LEGEND OF LIZZIE BORDEN (1975), starring Elizabeth Montgomery. We discuss the Borden true crime case in light of the 1975 film and beyond. The 1975 production proves a fine foundation for anyone who is new to the subject. We hope you'll join us for this conversation.
EP114: McCloud Meets Dracula (1977) with Special Guest
One of the first things to spin-off of the NBC Mystery Movie "Wheel" format was McCloud, starring Dennis Weaver (Duel, The Twilight Zone). It galloped across television sets from 1970-1977 and rode off into the sunset with its final episode, McCloud Meets Dracula, co-starring John Carradine (Stagecoach, The Ten Commandments). We talk McCloud and a whole lot more as I'm joined by a special guest, my brother, Vincent, to reminisce about television memories, days that found us in one of television's great eras. Listen in!
EP113: Twilight Zone's THE HOWLING MAN (1960), Patricia D., Jason Brock
It's the 60th anniversary of The Twilight Zone's THE HOWLING MAN episode. Penned by the brilliant Charles Beaumont, it furnishes a stellar example of what the series offered. I'm joined by my friend, Patricia, as we survey the appearance of The Devil throughout The Twilight Zone. I'm also joined by returning guest, Jason V Brock, for a deeper dive into Beaumont and The Howling Man. This episode was a long time coming. Warmest wishes for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and a bright New Year!

Incredible Look at the Things We Loved!
This podcast is tight and scholarly. I love the subjects presented. Excellent!
Awesome View of Yesterday
Just discovered this podcast this week and I am almost a third of the way thru the back episodes already. It is fun looking back on things I remember, and some that I had forgotten. Even better when it is helping me to discover shows that somehow had slipped by me! Hope this one lasts for a long long time!
Fantastic nostalgia fix
I love to think back to my childhood and teen years and all of the fun I had watching schlock on the TV. Antony does a great job bringing up topics and specific memories from my past even though he wasn't there! Kinda creepy now that I think about it. This podcast if a great little reminder of how the 70's and 80's television was far better than most of us give it credit for.
