Podcast: Molly Henery on ‘The Hive’

What do you get when you cross Fede Álvarez‘s Evil Dead remake with Christopher Nolan‘s Memento?

Podcast: Christine Makepeace on ‘Population 436’

There was a time not so long ago when Jeremy Sisto was the James Badge Dale of the horror industry. In the early 2000s, Sisto starred in a wide range of indie classics, including titles like Matthew Leutwyler‘s Dead & Breakfast and Lucky McKee‘s May.

Episode 29: The Matthew Monagle Horror-igin Story

Last week, we presented our listeners with a unique proposition: what if we turned the microphone back on ourselves and shared our own horror origin (horrorigin?) stories for a change?

In the years since The Blair Witch Project, the found footage horror film has gone through every possible permutation. But like any other subgenre, nothing livens up a well-worn premise quite like the introduction of another Big Idea™.

Behold, the untapped potential of the 2000s direct-to-video market. Like the current landscape of streaming releases, the direct-to-video market of old offered viewers a potential goldmine of underseen and underappreciated releases. You may have to dig – and dig, and dig, and dig – but true horror fans know that any amount of dumpster-diving is worth that one unearthed gem. […]

Episode 21: Joe Lipsett Names ‘The Nameless’

It has been over ten years since Jaume Balagueró‘s Rec reinvigorated the found footage genre. Balagueró’s film – in addition to a number of Spanish filmmakers – helped launch Spain to the top of the international marketplace.
