Horroretc Podcast: Episodes

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 ...
The Anthology Film. A construct of narrative, a storytelling device, a collage of short stories that inform an over-arcing motif. Ahhh, toss all that aside - we horror fans know anthologies as short but sweet fixes of excitement that run the whole spectrum of pace, mayhem and success. This form has been ...
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. Full disclosure time...the content this week is pretty light on true horror but hey, that's why the Etc part ...
In November of 2009 two podcasters disappeared in a Starbucks near Kingston, Ontario ...A day later their audio was found.

The found footage fright flick is examined this week on the show with special attention paid to the recent installment Paranormal Activity. Our lengthy discussion of this film includes ...
Friends... welcome to the Carpathians - we are anxiously expecting you.

In just a few moments time, the coach will leave for Bukovina - a place on it is reserved for you. At the Borgo Pass, our carriage will wait for you, and will bring you to us - may you enjoy your stay, in our frightful company.

HE comes home one more time...

As with all good things, the Horroretc Halloween retrospective comes to an end with our third installment. In a franchise rife with questionable directions some of the most head scratching decisions lie ahead. We kick things off with a confused recollection of Halloween ...
More of the night Horror Etc came home (sorry, can't help it).
Continuing our retrospective of the Halloween franchise we cover the immediate sequel Halloween 2 (1981), the failed anthology experiment of Halloween 3: Season of the Witch (1982), the Return of Michael Myers in Halloween 4 (1988) and the ...
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.

Frequent co-host Doug sits in to discuss the success of Zombieland both in box office returns and as a modern zombie comedy. We also ...
Halloween 1978, the night HE (Horror Etc) came home!

Kicking off our Halloween retrospective we have another in our now ongoing series of feature length audio commentaries with the original John Carpenter classic. What more can be said that hasn't been covered ad naseum in documentaries, interviews, ...
