A great deal of holiday cheer was imbibed prior to the recording session and the show is step or two groggier than ...
The makeup artist. An often under-acknowledged component of the practical effects team that bring nightmares to celluloid gets some attention this week.

Hannibal Lecter. The very name conjures up so many iconic images and unforgettable lines. We finally give a long overdue look at the character's film franchise...such as it is. The Hannibal films are indeed an eclectic group with such varied performers, directors, composers, timelines - hell, there's ...

In our second part of the David Cronenberg retrospective we witness a continuation of his unique and macabre exploration of horror inflicted upon the flesh and subsequent evolution into thought provoking drama. Along the way, the filmography got a little experimental with diversions into the surreal ...
David Cronenberg. The name stirs memories of some of the most challenging films offered up in the horror genre, but to restrict his work to a specific category is impossible. He could be described as a master of the macabre but has long since exceeded that definition

A self professed observer of the ...
"Greetings, my friend. We are all interested in the future, for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives. And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future. And now, for the first time, we are bringing to you, the full story of what happened on ...
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 ...
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 ...

It was all around another ...
Welcome to our third annual trip to the Toronto Fan Expo and Festival of Fear.

This year proved to be the best outing we've had and there is a ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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?

Please wait...
