Horroretc Podcast: Episodes

The Anthology Film. A construct of narrative, a storytelling device, a collage of short stories that inform an over-arcing motif.

Time to climb back into the wayback machine and spend the evening wallowing in nostalgia as we tackle the 1980's.

Now, any attempt to recap a full decade of films in a single sitting is foolishness so we came up with a system to randomly select an individual year to look back at the films produced ...
Time once again for a patented From The Hip edition of the podcast. This week we focus on what we've watching lately on the big screen and some films coming soon that we are looking forward to.

Welcome to a bonus edition of the podcast. This episode was an unplanned and fairly off the cuff number of segments chatting about horror with fellow fans of the genre.

Halloween 1978, the night HE (Horror Etc) came home!

Time to put our thinking caps on and do some number crunching as we apply real world science to the horror genre.

Welcome friends to a discussion about a very serious subject: Censorship.

So the concept this week was to give an overview of how censorship has impacted the horror genre in the past and how it continues to loom over the film industry today. To frame our topic we conduct the podcast with the recently ...
It all starts with small suspicious behaviours, a cold distant disoposition, and before you know it...garbage trucks are everywhere and the neighbours are carrying pods.

This week it's a look back at the various incarnations of the classic tale of paranoia, mass conformity and smothering conspiracy. ...
Welcome all to a bit of a different episode this week as we discuss the processes of independent short filmmaking.

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) ...
