Welcome to a very special Halloween edition of The Last Horrorcast. This week we take a break from the traditional format of reviewing films and take a look at a few episodes of The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror. We discuss episodes VIII (The Homega Man, Fly vs. Fly and Easy Bake Coven), XVII (Married to the Blob, You Gotta Know When to Golem and The Day the Earth Looked Stupid) and XXVI (Wanted: Dead, Then Alive, Homerzilla and Telepaths of Glory).
This week Doug and Scott discuss a couple of their favorite franchise sequels that they feel didn’t receive the recognition they deserved. Doug begins with a look back at Ginger Snaps 2: Unleashed (2004) [spoilers from 36:54-53:10] followed by Scott’s enthusiastic review of Bride of Chucky (1998).
After a short break, we cover off some listener feedback, and discuss plans for our upcoming special Halloween episode.
Grab some coffee or caffeine pills and join us as we discuss sleep related horror films this week. After a brief discussion about Canadian Football and the global appeal of potato chips, we take a look at Scott’s pick for the week Sleep Tight (2011) followed by Doug’s pick of the recent documentary, The Nightmare (2015). [Spoiler alert for Sleep Tight from 42:45-58:22.]
After the break, we listen to some listener feedback, give away a copy of Bait 3D, and once again solicit the listeners, this time for help with a very special upcoming show idea.
Hide your sugar, because this week on The Last Horrorcast we are tackling some Giant Ant films. First up is Doug’s pick, Empire of the Ants (1977) followed by Scott’s pick of the classic, Them! (1954).
After the break, we listen to some listener feedback, hear some great new show topic ideas, and tell you how you could win a free copy of Bait 3D!
Welcome once again to The Last Horrorcast. This week we take a look at some horrific film adaptations of some classic fairy tales. First up is Doug’s pick, Pinocchio’s Revenge (1996) followed by Scott’s pick of Snow White: A Tale of Terror (1997).
Once again, your hosts Scott and Doug dig up an off beat horror topic and explore films that use grocery stores as a setting. Doug kicks things off with his pick Alien Raiders (2008) after which Scott describes the 3-D shark fest, Bait (2012).
After the break, we give the listeners a chance to chime in with some fan mail and feedback before wrapping the show with an invitation to catch a few horror films at the drive-in.
This week on the show we tackle a slightly more mainstream horror theme than we’re used to. Today we are talking about cults. After discussing cults and their use as a horror sub-genre, we dive into our main feature. First is a rather decisive pick by Scott, Holy Ghost People (2013) [spoilers from 31:20-46:08] followed by Doug’s pick of Martha, Marcy, May, Marlene (2011) [spoilers from 1:10:30-1:17:50].
After the break, we discuss an off topic film that we both had an opportunity to check out, M. Night Shyamalan’s The Visit. Be sure to stick around until the end of the episode to hear how you could have an opportunity to watch a couple horror films live with one of the hosts of the show. (Spoiler alert, it’s not Doug.)
This week on The Last Horrorcast, we bring you yet another off beat horror topic. We explore horror films that use gas stations as a backdrop. We not only give a few thoughts on why such a concept works, but we also dig deep into two films that utilize this setting. First up is Splinter (2008) followed by The Vanishing [aka Spoorloos] (1988). [Spoilers from 1:04:30 – 1:08:30]
Be sure to stick around for the end of the show, where we reveal the winner of last episode’s contest giveaway.
This week on The Last Horrorcast, your hosts Doug and Scott delve into the world of Bigfoot! They discuss some general “facts” and legends about bigfoot, as well as review a couple of found footage bigfoot films. First up is Willow Creek (2013) [spoilers from 29:56 to 36:36] followed by Exists (2014). In addition, they authoritatively determine once and for all whether bigfoot is real or not.
The show wraps up with a contest giveaway, so be sure to listen to see how you can enter to win.
