Horroretc Podcast: Episodes

It's been a long and winding road to finally reach a Jack Ketchum spotlight episode but here we are. The history of the podcast has tracked our exposure to Ketchum's adaptations with varying reactions and the question is do we recommend his work? Well, the
answer is a qualified yes in that one must ...
Well it finally happened. A new Evil Dead film. After years of rumour and much speculation it has arrived and we were first in line to check it out. Before setting out for the theatre we sat down to have a casual chat about our expectations and what we have been watching.

The very random topics include ...
Horror in stop-motion. It is a age old method of presenting fantastical images on screen born of necessity from a time before the technology of CGI, and has enjoyed a resurgent popularity in recent years. The horror genre is a fitting one to offer the unique look and feel of stop motion imagery as it ...
Time to catch up on some of the films we have not had a chance to discuss recently as we chat about what we've been watching. It's a pretty wide spectrum of topics and titles this week including but not limited to:

Sushi Girl (2012) - featuring a cool array of genre names, led by the one and only Tony ...
Grab your fedora hat, bullwhip and leather jacket to join us on a globe-trotting adventure. This week we take a look back at the Indiana Jones trilogy (oh, and the fourth one too). It was an impromptu and very casual session of reminiscing about films that were such an important part of our childhood ...
Welcome to the Overlook Hotel, we hope you enjoy your stay. This week we take an in-depth look at all things The Shining from the original novel to Kubrick's classic (and confounding) adaptation to the 1997 television miniseries to Room 237 and the plethora of theories and analysis that have been applied ...
Avoid sex, drugs and alcohol, never separate from the group, don't check that noise in the attic and of course... double tap. Sure, there are pretty universally accepted truths to surviving the horror genre cliches but we thought it would be fun to just take a little time and run
through some famous ...
This week we invite you to travel back with us to yesteryear as we discuss the iconic Blind Dead series. With four films spanning 1971 to 1975, all guided by the singular vision of Amando de Ossorio, it's a celebration of great atmosphere, terrifying antagonists and audience frustration. At one moment ...
This week we discuss the perversion of medical science in horrific ways. Horror has had a long history of using medicine
and institutions of healing as a foil for terrifying storytelling. Hospital horror is a subgenre unto itself and the dastardly works performed by mad scientists dates all the way back ...
More feedback anyone? As promised, we have continued our effort to catch up on the voicemail feedback from the podcast community. Anthony and Ted riff on the subjects brought to the table by listeners which provided a great mix of subjects both new and old. This week we chat
about Peter Cushing, Stephen ...
The silence is broken. The brief hiatus has ended with a casual and general collection of topics with contributions
from listeners via voicemail feedback. The listener content ended up being about 20 percent of the running time, allowing us to chat about a nicely eclectic collection of subjects including ...
It's a good old fashioned from the hip style episode with one minor twist: the audio. Apologies up front for the low fidelity sound this week as our attempt to record via skype resulted in what you will hear. Hopefully, the discussion is still of value and you enjoy the conversation as we covered a pretty ...
Enough with the suspense, we return once more to the filmography of Alfred Hitchcock this week. In the wake of the release of Hitchcock, a pseudo-biopic of the director's personal and professional
struggles in the realization of Psycho, we thought it would be a good opportunity to offer our thoughts ...
Welcome to the groundbreaking ceremony of the Horroretc Hall of Fame. In classic fashion, we had a great longform debate over history's greatest contributors to the horror genre to hash out the inaugural class and tried to group the inductee candidates that warrant recognition. The ultimate purpose of ...
The Mayans Were Right!! (Well, at least about 2012 horror films that is)

Horror Etc drops the ball, or at least watches the ball drop with our annual YEAR IN REVIEW show! There is a fair amount of debate as to how the horror genre faired in its cinematic offerings in 2012. Indeed while certain titles ...
Our year end tradition of discussing the most recent season of Dexter returns. Season 7 had its highs and lows, offered some very interesting character analysis and left things off on a nicely dark note. We dig into the various story threads, villains and the themes they represent, the introduction of ...
It's the most wonderful time of the year?
Listening to the Horroretc podcast should always be a wonderful time, at least that is the intention. Welcome to our sixth
annual festivus episode as we ring in the holiday season with some general genre chatter (if not cheer). It truly is a laid back show as ...
The Alfred Hitchcock spotlight marches on this week with another five selections to ruminate about. The films of Alfred
Hitchcock, as even the most casual fan knows, manage to blend elements of comedy, romance, tragedy, and politics, all with a captivating thriller plot. Our picks to share this episode ...
"Goooood Eeeevening...I am Alfred Hitchcock."

Welcome to the beginning of our Hitchcock director spotlight. Arguably cinema's most famous filmmaker, the master of
suspense was the forefather of more techniques that have influenced the thriller and horror genre than can be counted. When the question ...
Hard to believe it's been 4 long years since we last talked James Bond on the podcast but the time has finally come.
Now we know that not everyone is as big a fan of Bond as we are so as a fair warning to avoid our spoiler laden discussion on Skyfall the segment runs from 7:50 to 37:00 of the show.

The ...
