Discover the Horror Podcast: Episode 15 – Bert I. Gordon

King Dinosaur (1955), The Cyclops (1957), & Food of the Gods (1976). What do these three films have in common? They all came from Mr. BIG himself, the one and only Bert I. Gordon. Known for films that featured giant monsters, such as giant grasshoppers, spiders, teenagers, and rats, he usually had some sort of small threat that is made larger with either shooting them on smaller sets or super imposing them over a back projector screen. No matter what the latest creature is, coming from Mr. BIG, you can be sure that fun usually ensues. So tune in and get our take on these films as well as some other interesting topics we cover.

  1. Listened to this on the driver to work this morning. Yo guys had me laughing out loud! I think you guys have really hit your stride! I love the fact that you don’t only focus on movies you all love but are willing to discuss movies some of you don’t care for as well. it gives a much more balanced approach than others give.
    I also love the fact that you focus on a specific topic each time as approached to just a scattershot approach. by picking one director or style, it gives you the ability to dig a little deeper than you could if you were jumping from movie to movie throughout the podcast.

    Thanks for your time the 3 of you take making the show!

    • Your comments are very much appreciated, Chris! It means a lot to know that we’re reaching people and they are getting our goal. For better or worse, the horror genre is what we love and want to promote, and we all know we can’t love everything. Thanks for continuing to tune in.
