Horroretc Podcast: Episodes

You've got questions, we've got answers. We finally return to one of our favorite subjects, the Q & A. It doesn't get much more casual than this as we have a relaxed session of general genre talk. Questions from most desired remake to our stance on off-shore oil drilling are fielded all thanks to listeners ...
Well, we tried. Our intentions were good. A Director's Spotlight dedicated to one of the great visionaries of our time. A man capable of delivering one of the (if not the) greatest sweeping epics ever put to film in the mind boggling Lord of the Rings trilogy while also giving us one of the most ludicrously ...
Height and width are the dimensions we know when images are projected onto that big flat screen in front of us but what happens when you throw depth into the mix? 3-D baby.

This week we take a look at the (long) history of 3-D in cinema and where things may be heading. Admittedly, it's an episode burdened ...
Dim the lights, cue the title card and strike up the orchestra...lets talk about silent film.

This week we discuss the birth of cinema and the subsequent development of a new medium of entertainment from the first (still existing) two second film from 1888 through to 1927 and the end of the silent ...
Movies...so many movies. The whole crew gathered this week to chat about the various films we have all been watching and there were a lot of them. The problem was there was really no cohesive theme or motif upon which we could build a show topic (there were a lot of UK titles? Most were fairly recent? ...
Horror comics...the saga continues.

With some of the history and evolution of the medium covered off in the first installment we proceed with getting into a little more detail on many titles available to explore. Our second volume features another great interview with friend of the show Ken calling ...
Welcome to an unscheduled From The Hip episode. We decided to interupt our look at horror comics to bring everyone up to speed on recent events that may be of importance to the horroretc community. Not to worry, the drama is minimal and this impromptu get together served to give us the chance to get ...
The art of comics. It's been a long time in the making but your fiends at Horroretc have finally delivered on our long promised look at horror in comics.

When we venture into territory that expands beyond our knowledge base we are certainly not above bringing in the experts to help educate us and this ...
As a reconvening of the Horroretc Book Club is long overdue we present to you a second episode dedicated to the world of horror literature.

Horror works very well on film as the medium allows for manipulation of the viewer's senses by visual means. The foreboding sense of a darkened alley can be conveyed ...
Once more unto Raimi for the third and concluding episode of our director retrospective. When last we met the floodgates had been thrown open for us to gush about our love of all things Evil Dead but this chapter has a few more lows to mix in with the successes. No stone is left unturned as we cover ...
The Sam Raimi director spotlight gets going in full swing as we take a look back at his 1978 - 1993 works. As many know, the inspiration for The Evil Dead was born from a 1978 short film titled Within The Woods and it's interesting to find that many distinct Raimi trademarks are present from the very ...
Welcome to another Horroretc audio commentary.

As a kickoff to our extended Sam Raimi director's spotlight we sit down to revisit one of the all time great films of the genre. It's a pretty one-sided argument to say Evil Dead 2 is one of the most beloved horror flicks out there with a truly iconic performance ...
Ozploitation - Round 2

Another great roster of Aussie film picks this week complete with all new content. Exploring the list of titles from week to week was a great way to discover the many genre films the land down under has to offer and served as a reminder of how much we have enjoyed many classics ...
It's a clip show? Well, not really.

Some time ago we enjoyed a rollicking documentary called Not Quite Hollywood where we were introduced to a huge roster of little known Australian genre films while simultaneously reminded about the classics we know and love. Thus began a pseudo filmfest where an ...
"Tarantino is an aesthete, a Fitzgeraldian observer of the delicate dance of social interaction" - Ron Rosenbaum (critic)

"Tarantino doesnâ??t communicate anything to the audience except 'look how fucking cool I am' â?? - (anonymous blogger)

A special directors spotlight this week as we scrutinize ...
Time to bury the past in a shallow grave as we take a look back to the past decade.

Okay, so maybe its a bit cliche to throw out a 'best of' summary just because the year changed but its also a great opportunity to recap the big titles that hit the mark for horror fans. The past decade also represented ...
Hello Dexter Morgan!

Welcome to the Horroretc recap of Dexter season 4 (the penultimate season?). A couple disclaimers first - as before we discuss the 12 episodes in their entirety and as such we only recommend listening once you have finished watching the season or to get our impressions of why this ...
Welcome to the third annual Horroretc X-mas Spectacular. In keeping with tradition we offer up a feature length film discussion followed by some random topics and a gift exchange.

Of course the main subject has to be...Avatar. Yes we know there is no shortage of discussion about this event film but ...
Welcome all to another Horroretc audio commentary, this time for the 1968 George A. Romero classic Night of the Living Dead.

So here's the situation. As a result of unexpected scheduling conflicts we found ourselves without an episode this week. Thus we present a previously recorded audio commentary ...
Its the end of the world as we know it...and we feel fine.

Apocalyptic, post-apocalyptic, distopian future, annihilation, destruction and despair - we've got it all for you this week. Inspired by recent experiences with The Road and 2012 (two products that could not be further apart), we discuss the ...
