Horror art has become more and more these days, with the whole Mondo movie poster movement, as well as just more of an appreciation of what some of these talented artists are creating.
If you know horror art, you probably know Ghoulish Gary Pullin, and even if you don’t know his name, you know his work. From Rue Morgue magazine to posters to album covers and more, Gary’s signature style is everywhere you look in our little fandom community, so we talk to him about his career, the nature of horror art, and various other odds and ends.
Here is a list of films mentioned in this episode:
Did you know that once upon a very earthy time, major broadcasters made films specifically to be shown on TV, and that of the thousands that were made, a whole bunch were horror films? On this episode, we transport you back to a time of shag carpet, rotary phones and pants-wettingly scary films with commercial interruptions. In this episode, we are discussing A Cold Night’s Death (1973) starring Robert Culp and Eli Wallach, Dan Curtis’ The Norliss Tapes (1973), and Tobe Hooper’s adaptation of Stephen King’s Salem’s Lot (1979).

Larrez. Rollin. Franco. Do those names mean anything to you? And if so, what images come to mind? For those that are aware of those names and their work, you might have an image of a vampire or two floating through your mind. In this episode, we take a look at 3 unique vampire films that are quite different than what most would consider a traditional genre entry, and each from a different director. We cover Jose Larrez’s Vampyres (1974), Jean Rollin’s Fascination (1979), and Jess Franco’s Vampyros Lesbos (1971).
As horror fans, we’re guessing that everyone out there has been asked one time or another, “why do you like horror?” It’s a question that can get many different answers, but no matter what the answer might be, it never seems to get across to the person asking it, or at least enough for them to truly understand our strange passion of this particular film genre. Join us as we discuss this topic, and while maybe not answer that age old question for everyone, we’ll at least give our insight into why we are still love horror after all these years.

So, help us welcome AC into our little philosophical discussion as we delved into the dark recesses of our minds, attempting to answer the not-so-simple question, Why Do We Like Horror?

In this episode, we talk about the Italian Godfather of Gore, Lucio Fulci. But while everyone has seen his films like Zombie (1979) and City of the Living Dead (1980), we thought we’d discuss a few of his lesser-known films, such as Don’t Torture a Duckling (1972), The Psychic (1977), and House of Clocks (1989). So, you can either click below, go to Discover the Horror’s website, or find it on whatever platform you listen to podcasts. And once you’re done listening, let us know what you think? Thoughts?

Famous Monsters, Fangoria, HorrorHound, Rue Morgue, Deep Red, Castle of Frankenstein, and the list goes on! For most younger horror fans, especially before the internet, that is where we got the latest news and information as to what was going on in the horror industry. This episode we discuss how important they were to us in our informative years, as well as something that still continues on to this day. So, listen up as we go over some of the magazines that made a huge impact in our life, and especially what helped up be the horror fiends we are today!
When talking Turkeys, the only bad movie is a boring one! And the films we discuss in this episode are anything but boring! We delve into the world of the Turkey! Films that may not be the best made in the technical aspect, or in the acting department, or even a cohesive story line, or could have you scratching your head wondering if aliens had created these films. But no matter what, they are damn entertaining.
Tonight, we discuss The Giant Claw (1957), Blood Freak (1972), and Creatures from the Abyss, aka Plankton (1994). With each of these films, there are moments where you will ask yourself, “just how did these ever get made?” I know we’re glad they did because we have all enjoyed them over and over again, for all their strangeness, oddness, or just downright craziness.
So sit back and enjoy some very intellectual discussions on some films that deserve your attention!
