WUH is a podcast about my memories of strange horror movies from the 1970s and 1980s. https://www.wakeupheavy.com/
BRR: Rancho Deluxe (1975)
There's a first time for everything, and here's the first WUH Blu-Ray Review. The love for RANCHO DELUXE continues with a break-down of Fun City Editions' release of the film, its first appearance on Blu-Ray. This rambling, low-stakes tale of the New West has won me over, but does this release do it justice? Listen and find out.

Special Guest: Anthony King
Anthony King, host of The Cult Movies Podcast, pays a visit to WUH Headquarters and brings along a movie that traumatized him as a child, but has since become one of his favorites. On this Special Guest episode we talk about John Landis's 1982 classic horror/comedy film An American Werewolf in London, Anthony's show, Jenny Agutter, and why Grandma should always keep the bedroom door closed.

WUH: July 2021
I'm taking the news/notes, and watch list recommendations out of regular episodes and giving all that stuff its own series. If you generally stop episodes at the end when I get to all this, you may want to skip these episodes. But if you are interested in these things, plus info on guest appearances on other shows, then have a listen.
WDIRT V4E3: Macabro (1980)
MACABRO (1980) (aka MACABRE, aka FROZEN TERROR) is a New Orleans set horror film from director Lamberto Bava, the son of famed Italian director Mario Bava. The film stars Bernice Stegers (XTRO) as Jane Baker, a woman who's adultery leads to tragic consequences, and Stanko Molnar (A BLADE IN THE DARK) as the blind land-lord of the building where she resides. Veronica Zinny, in her only role, is perfectly cast as Jane's troubled and troublesome daughter.

WUH: Cleo vs. The Thing (1982)
I really like showing Cleo some of my favorite Classic Horror films, and this happens to be one of my all time faves. On this episode we take a look at John Carpenter's 1982 practical effects masterpiece The Thing. I love this movie, but where will it rank for Cleo amongst the other Classics we've watched? You'll just have to have a listen.

This is the best podcast, ever!
Like listening to a buddy wax rhapsodic over horror flicks
Thoughtful musings about horror movies. A touch of nostalgia and a touch of scholarly dissection. And he doesn’t yell at you while he does it. Cool background music, too.
Refreshing and reminiscent
If you are like me and you grew up going to your neighborhood video store and renting movies based on the box art or you have any interest in the horror film genre than this is a cool podcast to listen to and reminisce. Is it the most in-depth horror film podcast? Nope! Is it the most professionally produced? Not at all, but Mark brings a level of genuineness and sincerity and a love for weird and amazing movies that is refreshing and candid. You feel as if you are entering a conversation with an excited, yet, reluctant narrator on his personal journey of filmdom. Enter in!!!
