EPISODE 156 - What We've Been Watcing 2

Time to clear some of our recent watching off the table. Recently our film viewing has been diverse, opening the door to multiple From The Hip format shows but we have a plan to deliver a multiple episode subject beginning next week and we need to get our thoughts out on these titles right now: Machete (great grindhouse fun) Devil (Night's chronicle) The Ward (John Carpenter's world premier) The Last Exorcism (what happened there at the end?) Frozen (reprise) Peacock (x-dressing Cilian Murphy) Seed (Uwe Boll strike's again) Who Can Kill A Child? (the title says it all) Scott Pilgrim vs The World (Edgar Wright is back) The Town (Ben Afleck is legit?) So we have the recent theatrical releases, a great 70's exploitation piece that challenges the boundaries of the genre, a few revisits, a dash of random and Ben Affleck to lend some credibility to the proceedings (?!). Along the way we hit on Final Destination 5, the return of Wes Craven, once more the Poughkeepsie Tapes, Uwe Boll and a lot more. So things will get focused on a subject we've been dying to cover beginning next week (and yes, we actually do cough it up during the show). A quick schlock corner before we go: Night Chronciles Escalation. We always welcome your comments: horroretc@gmail.com / voicemail (206) 337-5324 WWW.HORRORETC.COM

EPISODE 155 - Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)

The podcast which you are about to hear is an account of the tragedy which befell a group of five youths, in particular Sally Hardesty and her invalid brother Franklin. It is all the more tragic in that they were young. But, had they lived very, very long lives, they could not have expected nor would they have wished to see as much of the mad and macabre as they were to see that day. For them an idyllic summer afternoon drive became a nightmare. The events of that day were to lead to the discovery of one of the most bizarre crimes in the annals of American history, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. Texas Chainsaw Massacre has been a film often requested by listeners to be given it's due attention. Rather than present an episode breaking down the TCM series, we offer a commentary to the '74 original where the salient points of the franchise could be discussed along the way. The original TCM has been pointed to as Tobe Hooper's crowning achievement as a director and as one of the most iconic and influential films in the horror genre. All this with a shoestring budget of $140K. TCM has surely been one of the most analyzed horror films in history with themes of anti-authority (misleading 'true story' opening narrative), sexual oppression and the destabilizing of the family ideal. However, as the critics have recognized TCM may also be the most purely horrifying horror movie ever made.

EPISODE 154 - Give Lance A Chance

At long last Horroretc gives Lance a chance. A Lance Henriksen retrospective has been on our short list of topics we most wanted to do and has become one of our most requested subjects over the years. Following on the heels of our interview with the man last week we present an overview of the career of one of the genre's most iconic actors. With a credit list approaching 200 spanning four decades, how can we do justice to the filmography in a single episode? Well we break down the filmography into some identifiable phases stopping along the way to discuss the well recognized roles as well as some titles we sought out for first time viewings to give a relatively balanced cross section. Interspersed throughout the show we offer commentary from Lance himself who happens to be a great storyteller. For only the third time we dedicate an episode of the show to an individual performer, one who has had a significant impact on us as genre fans. We hope you enjoy.

EPISODE 153 - Festival of Fear '10 (part 2)

In the second installment of our coverage of Festival of Fear and Fan Expo 2010, we offer up a star studded roster. Well maybe not studded but we do deliver highlights of William Shatner's appearance and proudly present an interview with the man himself - Lance Henriksen. It was all around another great outing to the Expo and we hope you enjoy some of the highlights we have to share. Lloyd Kaufman makes a return appearance on the show and was definitely on his game. We catch up with Doug to discuss a few film screenings (including Adam 'Hatchet' Green's new movie Frozen). The highlight of the weekend was sitting down (quite literally on the floor) with Lance. He turned out to be a warm and genuine dude. Makes us want to talk about some of his filmography (hint, hint). 0:00 - 4:06 Intro from the floor 4:07 - 23:41 Highlights of William Shatner 23:42 - 26:53 Lloyd Kaufman 26:54 - 30:07 Fort Fright 30:08 - 52:08 Interview with Lance Henriksen 52:09 - 1:10:00 Catching up with Doug 1:10:01 - 1:26:22 End of the Expo recap We always welcome your comments: horroretc@gmail.com Voicemail (206) 337-5324 WWW.HORRORETC.COM

EPISODE 152 - Festival of Fear '10 (part 1)

Welcome to our third annual trip to the Toronto Fan Expo and Festival of Fear. As we have done in the past Horroretc takes you on a tour of the sights and sounds of Canada's largest convention of horror, sci-fi, comics, anime and gaming. This year proved to be the best outing we've had and there is a lot to share over the course of two episodes. This week we deliver a travelogue of Day 1 including: Intro on the train 0:00 - 18:43 Voicemails 18:44 - 25:01 Interview from the show floor highlighting obscure horror titles 25:02 - 32:34 Mid-day recap 32:35 - 41:33 Horroretc meetup 41:34 - 1:02:31 End of Day 1 recap 1:02:32 - 1:10:00 David Cronenberg 1:10:01 - 1:27:54 We hope you enjoy the discussions and share in our appreciation of David Cronenberg who was the headliner for the Festival of Fear. Having the opportunity to hear from this iconic director first hand confirms our respect is well placed. And yes...your hosts did in fact get some bitchin' tats to celebrate the outing. More coverage to come in part 2 with a very special guest to look forward to. We always welcome your comments: horroretc@gmail.com / voicemail (206) 337-5324 WWW.HORRORETC.COM

EPISODE 151 - From The Hip - Summer Fiesta

What is this, another From the Hip episode? The summer schedule contines to wreak havoc on your hosts ability to coordinate a more focused show so we're going random one more time. The truth behind why the long threatened Argento show hasn't happened yet is revealed though, and it isn't a matter of scheduling. This week we fired up the BBQ, sat out on the deck and discussed the summer fluff piece Piranha 3D. Boobs and blood were promised so did it deliver? Does a fish crap in the lake (hmmm, not really sure about how all that works). We also finally get around to talking about American Psycho (2000), the fratboy cult fave Boondock Saints (1999), the compelling downfall of Troy Duffy documented in Overnight (2003), a sword/gun and scorcery film Soloman Kane (2009), and a new documentary for the horror fan Nightmares in Red, White and Blue (2009). Bullitt, Deathproof, Dexter and some more random BS round things out. We had a bit of a technical glitch and our 15 minute schlock corner was lost so we have just cut in Christian Bale's tantrum from a year ago for your listening pleasure (3:45). Finally, an apology. As we sat by an outdoor pool while recording we didn't notice the hum of the motor which did end up picking up. Hopefully the feedback isn't too distracting.

EPISODE 150 - From The Hip - voicemail edition

Welcome to another milestone celebration as we once again invite the listeners to interact with us and share the floor. We received a tremendous response to our request for voicemail feedback which comprises half of the episode this week. We also have a variety of subjects to kick around in this somewhat From The Hip installment - Some random movie watches, video games, The Expendables (!), and the need for having a horror fan litmus test. Microsoft's new ad featuring Zombie 2's Zombie v Shark scene has now been brought to the masses. How now do we test our fellow genre fan's knowledge base? What test do you employ? Many thanks again to all who contributed feedback (Domingo, Jason, and Sean for going above and beyond), and for helping us reach this milestone. Our recording session during a work day is the explanation if things sound a little rushed at times. More horror coming, this time we mean it.

EPISODE 149 - Christopher Nolan

It's a directors spotlight for...Christopher Nolan? Hmmmm, and here I thought we promised some horror talk this week. Well, at least we do get to talk about some pretty awesome titles and pay some tribute to a filmmaker who has truly proven his ability to deliver on so many levels. The output covered is encapsulated in a single decade (sorry 1998's Following) and demonstrates the bright outlook we should all have as movie buffs for what yet may lie ahead. Memento (2000) is simply a must see! Thoroughly engaging and best of all - passes the test of rewatchability with flying colours. Insomnia (2002), Batman Begins (2005), The Prestige (2006), The Dark Knight (2008) and this years stunning Inception...quite an impressive list. We hope you enjoy our thoughts on these films and hopefully get inspired to hunt down those you may have missed (watch Memento!). Now with Nolan, we must be aware of spoilers. We're test running our new spoiler strategy by listing the timeframes to skip here: Memento - 21:21 to 24:31 The Prestige - 1:10:14 to 1:15:00 Inception - 1:42:14 to 1:51:14 Following up on our labeling of the Inception dream suitcase as a classic McGuffin, we look to Alfred Hitchcock to explain the meaning of the word in Schlock Corner.

EPISODE 148 - State of the Podcast(ing)

A state of the podcast show? Doesn't that usually involve an extended bitch session complaining about various things and the potential announcement of a show's retirement? Don't be alarmed friends, this week we are talking about...podcasting in general. Our experience doing it, the motivations that lead some to take on the hobby, the potential pitfalls to avoid and something of a brief tutorial for those who might be interested in trying it out themselves. We know this will not be a subject of specific interest to a number of listeners but there has always been a flow of correspondence asking about our take on this whole thing and requesting suggestions and recommendations to get started. So we are pulling the curtain wide open and chatting about what has motivated us to keep this up for 3 years now. Now this is not to say we don't have at least a few additional things to cover. Splice is finally covered and is a good example of how a well worn idea can be made fresh again, Don't Look Up (2009)...not so much. We also make amends for overlooking several unrealized horror movies that succumbed to development hell and revisit Seinfeld in Schlock Corner (link). Thanks to all for your patience and understanding this week, we've got some horror goodness coming your way next!

EPISODE 147 - Summer Break

Hi and hello all. We have decided in light of the various coordination difficulties and loaded schedules that a brief summer break episode was long overdue. So this weeks "show" is a short greeting, a brief summary of some forthcoming subjects and a revisit with Predators thanks to a special guest who dropped by for another night of debauchery. ...and for record, the trailer switcheroo with the multiple target sights was great! So please tune in for more Horroretc next week but for now...get some sun, raise a glass of spirits and turn up the music - it's summertime.

EPISODE 146 - The Exorcist Audio Commentary

The scariest movie ever made? It's a subjective statement but one that echoes throughout horror genre fandom. It's truly so much more though and an impressive example of what heights our genre can attain. We offer up a long requested installment of the Horroretc feature film audio commentary series tackling the iconic classic. One catch though...it's the version you've never seen. Clearly there has been much debate over the changes made in this unique director's cut but it also happens to be the most readily available version on the market. Trivia, alternate casting, curses, production stories, horrified audiences, traumatized actors, ridiculous financial success and finally remarkable critical accolades...few films have this much to say about them. We hope you enjoy our thoughts on The Exorcist in this longform format and take the opportunity to revisit it yourself. The power of Christ compels you!

EPISODE 145 - Skeletons in the Closet

Where are they now? Well we know that part, the question is where did they come from. This week we take a look at the horror genre roots of many of the industry's biggest mainstream stars and question the reluctance of many to acknowledge their past. For so many stars (and directors), horror has served as the stepping stone to cut their teeth and get noticed so we felt it was time to reflect on the "forgettable" fare to figure out if the animosity is deserved. Along the way we also have a little fun with some memorable role recasts like OJ Simpson as the Terminator (yes, it almost happened). It's a list heavy show which isn't our favorite format but hey - it's part of our 'summer series' of shows. Schlock Corner returns to it's intended purpose in highlighting true schlock with Incubus - the only film comprised entirely of dialogue spoken in the fake language of Esperanto. We close things out by recapping some recent watches including Summer Moon, Lisa and the Devil, The Last Airbender and Predators. Some new trailers and course, M Night get mentioned too. Link to the 16 Oscar Worthy Performances in Horror mentioned. We always welcome your comments: horroretc@gmail.com / voicemail (206) 337-5324 WWW.HORRORETC.COM

EPISODE 144 - Guess Who's Coming to Dinner

Guess Who's Coming To Dinner? Anthony celebrates his love of the venerable BBC series "Doctor Who" this week, in a special one-off edition of the Horror Etc Podcast. Taking control of the TARDIS, we‚??ll travel through the near 50-year history of the program, exploring what has allowed this unique series - in all of its incarnations - to enjoy such an extended life...for instance, did you know that the Guinness Book of World Records has acknowledged Doctor Who as the longest-running and most successful science fiction series of all time? Special guests include TV writer (and friend of the podcast) Ken Cuperus, Simon Lloyd (a UK-based educator, actor and Whovian), as well as some very insightful audio commentary from several of our listeners. This episode is not so much a lesson in the history of Doctor Who, but rather a series of audio essays which speak to our appreciation of a television institution.¬† Tony‚??s flying solo on this adventure as Ted enjoys a well-deserved week off lounging under the summer sun with a cold case of beer by his side. But in his place we‚??ve secured an appearance by the second most fearful entities in the universe... yes, it turns-out that even the Daleks listen to the Horror Etc Podcast!

EPISODE 143 - Canucksploitation

How's it hangin hosers? It's all about the homeland this week as we celebrate our birthday by finally talking about Canadian Horror films. We've got a pretty underspoken history of genre filmmaking here in Canada and hopefully we can provide a few titles to check out. A couple of major disclaimers right up front - a number of titles have lengthier discussions in past episodes but we wanted to do a compilation, and...no David Cronenberg. We know, we know, but he certainly deserves a full on director's spotlight right? We also take a frank look at the state of moviemaking in this country as we stand on the verge of 50 years of horror films on the frozen tundra. We were lucky enough to have Rodrigo Gudino appear on the podcast for a third consecutive year! Founder and editor of Rue Morgue magazine, host of the Festival of Fear and Canadian filmmaker himself, he shares his thoughts on the discussion of horror filmmaking in Canada. To share our knowledge of Canada's rich heritage and to alleviate some misconceptions we live read a pop quiz. We did...ok. An impromptu Schlock Corner brings things to a close as our own national pride William Shatner performs I Am Canadian.

EPISODE 142 - Mario Bava ... and more

The Italian horror film festival gets a kick in the ass this week as we explore a range of Mario Bava works from the time period of 1959 - 1966, not to mention a few curveballs along the way. Bava is lauded as having a true cinematic eye and credited as a master of mood accomplished through the use of lighting, colour, music and camera movement ...turns out that praise is pretty well earned. Things kick off with Kill Baby Kill (1966) followed by Caltiki, The Immortal Monster (1959), Blood and Black Lace (1964), Torso (1973), Planet of the Vampires (1965) and Whip and the Body / What? (1963). To bring it all home we dispense some differing opinions of Wes Craven's Cursed (2005) before admitting how much fun the A-Team was. Schlock corner features a terrific trailer for a new videogame The Force Unleashed 2 which led the way to some general comments on the state of the Star Wars franchise. Before opening up the floor to voicemails we debate the use of...voicemails. With respect to the varying opinions on the use of audio feedback we propose a balanced approach and then get into some great comments sent in to the show this week, demonstrating the strength of having listener contributions. Oh, and we talk about the new Predators and Inception trailers too. We always welcome your comments: horroretc@gmail.com / voicemail (206) 337-5324 WWW.HORRORETC.COM
