Horroretc Podcast: Episodes

Val Lewton: Master of the Shadows.
Well you asked for it and now it's arrived, by popular demand we present our Val Lewton retrospective. Tasked with heading up a B-movie production unit for cash strapped RKO Pictures, he turned out a number of films that demonstrated not only how prolific and efficient ...
Did you ever hear the one about...

Welcome to a relaxed mix of topics this week as we deliver an unofficial From the Hip show. What started out as a discussion of horrific Urban Legends and the effect felt on screen of these time worn tales evolved into an eclectic array of subjects. It's summertime ...
Man...the most dangerous game.
So here's the deal - what began as a need to talk about the cult favorite Japanese film Battle Royale from 2000 (and it's 2003 sequel), evolved into a discussion of the history of humans hunting humans for sport movies. Beginning with the original Most Dangerous Game (1932) ...
God bless the Queen....or whomever needs to be credited for the long, rich history of genre films produced out of the UK. This week we celebrate British horror. In order to overcome the obvious challenge of attempting to condense the entire history of British horror fare into one discussion, we have ...
Vincent Price - Master of the Macabre

Manic with homicidal rage one moment, then sporting a devilish grin the next, many of Price's characters were tortured souls haunted by a lost love or ghastly beings from experiments gone awry. Audiences were convinced to offer empathy through his performances all ...
Ahhhh, the Public Domain. Final resting place for the unwanted, unwatchable films of yesteryear to gather and be forgotten. Not so. This week we spend some time defining the public domain and giving a brief recap of the process through which a property can fall into public ownership, before exploring ...
Thanks for joining us for another informal episode where Ted has recruited special guest host Doug to deliver this week's show. Due to severe scheduling conflicts we were faced with missing our first week but as a test of the theory that something is better than nothing we cover:
1. Not Quite Hollywood: ...
Welcome all to another From The Hip episode of Horroretc. This weeks subjects are quite varied but we think some good discussion was had. The show opens with a few emails of interest (Ted gets back up on his Escape From LA soapbox) before bringing in a surprise guest by phone. Some recent watches are ...
After a lengthy delay Dexter Season 3 has arrived. We promised (warned) you we would devote an episode to the third season of this fantastic show and the time has arrived. Okay, so here's the disclaimer: maybe not everyone has watched Dexter, let alone season 3 which is due to hit DVD very soon, but ...
Welcome to our second Horroretc Feature Commentary. As a wrap up to our recent series of episodes revisiting the film career of John Carpenter we sat down to record an audio commentary to his seminal work: 1982's The Thing.

This episode was something of an impromptu decision so rather than focus on ...
The Man and His Movies: Part 3 of our John Carpenter retrospective.

In this chapter we discuss the recent ouput from the genre maestro and debate the merits of the 'second phase' theory of Carpenter's career. Certainly the past decade or so has not really produced the timeless classics of the past like ...
The John Carpenter retrospective rolls on.
This week we take a look at the continuing quality of Carpenter's output. With some of the greatest genre films we have behind us and some unsteady films to come, the period of 1983 through 1993 bridges the gap. Picking up from the masterwork of the Thing we ...
A director's spotlight that is long overdue...John Carpenter. A career spanning over 35 years with a list of titles as varied as they are impressive. Long regarded as an icon of genre filmmaking, Carpenter's work defines range: from the extreme imagery of In the Mouth of Madness and The Thing to the ...
Trek. The final frontier. These are the ramblings of podcast hosts who's purpose is to seek out new levels of geekdom, to boldly go where no horror podcast has gone before.......

Well, we gave you fair warning and the time has finally arrived to dedicate an episode of the show to Star Trek. Don't worry ...
This week we attempt to accomplish to things: complete an unofficial 3-part arc of kid themed episodes and show our appreciation for the continued support and participation of you the listeners. Following our call out for childhood horror experiences we received so many well written reminiscences, we ...
On the day I was born....the nurses all gathered 'round.
To gaze at the wild wonder....at the the joy they had found.
The one nurse spoke up....said leave this one alone.
I can tell by the way....he's Bad To The Bone.

Evil kids. The kneejerk reaction may be to dismiss this subgenre of horror
as played ...
Ahhhh, the films that serve to twist us into the deviant horror nerds we are today. Those early gateway horror films that opened our eyes to the genre and all the fun that could be had. It would be later before we encountered that first blood curdling shot of terror or be faced with visceral gore that ...
NOSFERATU: A Symphony of Terror.

Time again to step into the way-back machine and travel through the mists of time to revisit a timeless piece of cinema history, Nosferatu from 1922. A film of unsettling and sinister mood, it captured a true representation of the oft-used term German expressionism and ...
This week we take a step off the beaten path to discuss independent film.
The corporate conglomerate in North America represents over 83% of the total film industry, so what gems are out there on the fringe and what challenges do indie filmmakers face to get noticed? In what may be our most thought provoking ...
We are comin' atcha from the hip once again friends. It was a fun Nightmare retrospective capped off with a visit from Robert Englund and this week we are just relaxing in an informal format. Of course we had to kick around Watchmen (as always, a few weeks late), but we also spend some time with Last ...
Please wait...
