This week we get infected with the Demons franchise. That's right Lamberto Bava's two Italian classic films that take beats from zombie movies and mix in a bit of unholy terror. Demons (1985) and Demons 2 (1986). These movies are the nightmare fuel for children and sometimes schlock for adults. We break down both of these Dario Argento produced flicks and why they did so well over in Italy. Loads of snaggle teeth, trivia and demonic acid blood. Plus the news from last week and a new horror shot.
We are back with our creative segment #GravePlots! Where we make up a movie on the spot. This week we pulled “Ouija Cop” which was a listeners submission by Blues! Thanks for sending in your fake movie title! So what is Ouija Cop? He's a cop that communes with the dead to solve crime. The ghosts can inhabit and control his body at random and he becomes a bystander while the ghosts do odd things. Will he, his new partner and the ghosts help stop the evil drug lord Rocco? Find out in this weeks “OUIJA COP”! Don't forget to watch the Trailer for the movie we made up!
We return to the Howling Franchise to devour these movies one by one. It's been a bumpy shakey road of up and down films so far. We kick things off in order with Howling v The Rebirth where it takes us back to Budapest Hungary for some good ol' fashion Castle werewolves. Then take on the more unique film Howling VI The Freaks. Where a freak show adopts a strange new freak into it's menagerie of oddities but there’s a new creature lurking in the dark. A purple one... and it ain't Barney. Find out which we enjoyed more in our reviews of these with trivia about them.
We take on 2 new horror comedies that just released this week! Blood Fest & Slice. 2 movies that are a little silly and one of them that surprised us greatly. Blood Fest is about a Horror theme park that comes to life and tries to kill it's patrons. Slice is a movie about a gateway to hell that a Pizza Place is built on. Both chock full of silliness and laughs? Find out. Plus we go over the news this past week that caught our attention and a delicious new shot recipe for “Slice”. Check it out!
This week the Director of Beyond The Black Rainbows NEWEST entry “Mandy” got our attention. We are talking about none other than Panos Cosmatos and his wild mind melt movie with Nicholas Cage. Another great freak-out movie to the pile of Cage movies made. If you haven't seen this don't worry we break it down spoiler free. Then let you know when we get to our Trivia and spoilers discussion. It was a Trip to hell man and we gladly took the ride with a fistful guts and a mouthful of silvery gooey goodness.
One of our favorite sub genres is back with two Italian (zombie?) Horror movies from the 80s! Lucio Fulci's own Zombie 3 and Claudio Fragasso's Zombie 4 After Death. Two movies that should be paired together but not because of the story. In fact these two movies have very little to do with each other or their very successful masterpiece Zombie 2 aka Lucio Fulci's “Zombie” (1979). We dive mouth first into a pile of flesh to cover all the trivia and background on both these films. There is plenty of fun trivia on these movies while we break down our thoughts on each and which movie beats the other. It's a schlock down of zombie proportions.
We return with a brand new movie that we made up for #Graveplots!! That's right. We Sat down and potentially came up with a sequel to the Demons franchise. Hell is unleashed on earth and set loose on the population of a prison. When people start to get infected with a demon plague sweeping the facility. Things go from bad to demonic. It's gory and a lot of fun. See what you think of the movie we made up on the spot. We hope you enjoy!
This week we have sat down wih Director/Writer/Producer Anthony Deblasi of Clive Barkers “Dread” (2009), one of our favorite new supernatural films “Last Shift” (2014) and his upcoming release of halloween extreme haunts called “Extremity” (2018). We got to sit down and talk about his upcoming film in depth. We also take a deep look into fear, waterboarding, ghost stories and a lot of behind the scenes goodies for all you fans out there. Plus afterwards (Britni is back and) we review “Dread” & “the Midnight Meat Train”.
As promised we return to the Howling franchise! Only this time we brought a friend! Horror friend and artist Brad Thornton joins Alex in Watching parts 3 & 4. We start it off with The 3rd story which hops to Australia with a pouch full of weird werewolves and marsupial people. It's.. interesting? Then we jump into part 4 where we the biggest nightmare is probably watching it. It was a true test of movie watching on both our parts. We even made up a horrorshot that fits all too well and talk about the news.
We've been hitting older movies pretty hard lately so for a change of pace we dove into some horror films from the 2000's. Mainly in the PG-13th variety. That's right we chose the remake of “Ringu” called “The Ring” (2002) that turned America onto a slew of J-Horror remakes. We also take on a NON remake movie about an evil Dybbuk that tries to possess a girl called “The Unborn” (2009). It's pretty fantastic what we discovered about these films. Did they hold up? Find out. Plus since “Jumby wants to be born now”... we made a #horrorshot themed around the movie The Unborn. Dive in! The water is filled with Samara.
We are back with some movies about the infamous Boogey man. We decided to pick 2 separate films that deal with the same sort of concept. Or.. in this case use the name. We chose “The Boogey Man” from 1980 Directed by the late Ulli Lommel who was compared to Andy Warhol once and another film (unrelated) called “Boogeyman” from 2005 produced by Sam Raimi & Rob Tapert? Oh boy... were these special. Find out what we think plus all the trivia you could ever want about these two movies. Plus join us in making a shot for one of the movies! We sure do have a time and “spin a yarn”.
It's time for another movie making #Graveplots (Audio Drama) where we make up a movie on the spot. This episode is complete with GORE soaked sound FX! This week we got ancient on you! A Goddess who was banished by the many other Gods was banished to the sea when she is reawakened by a group of college students she exacts her ancient revenge on them. This is not for the faint of heart. So listener discretion is advised. Listen as we have Mordriana hunt each of these kids down in some of the most gore filled and creative ways possible. Alex got extra creative on the sound fx too. We had a blast coming up with this story. Brace yourselves for the end of this episode. We broke into tears of laughter coming up with the tag line. Plus we do the news this past week.
Our 100th Episode. Help us celebrate Over the 136 uploads (or Episodes) and almost 2 years of dedication to the Beyond The Void Horror Podcast. It's been a lot of laughs, fun and sharing horror with new friends we have made along the way. We thought what better way than to celebrate than to drink 3 of our own shots (new and old) while talking about some of the worst horror movies ever. “Creatures From The Abyss” (1994) & “Rats: Night of Terror” (1984). Two movies that you might of never heard but probably will want to see after this episode. WOW... one of them is just insanely “So bad it's good”. Thank you guys for all the love and support here is to 100 more episodes!
Since our recent #Graveplots horror movie we made up we figured let's watch some werewolf movies. What better series to start with than The Howling (1981) & Howling 2: Your Sisters A Werewolf (1985). 2 completely different tones from one another but were both extremely enjoyable. One of them though.. oh boy... It's a doozy of a film. Makes you wonder how the franchise got so popular. We also take a new #horrorshot to wash down the after taste of these movies. So buckle up.
When the movie Alien came out from Ridley Scott in 1979. The world embraced it's Sci-Fi horror like none other. It inspired many people and many movies. These are 2 of the many movies that were inspired by Alien but didn't necessarily rip them off. “Aliens 2 On Earth” about a bunch of cave explorers who descend and climb ropes to their alien tentacle deaths & “Contamination” about a bunch of weird glowing eggs that explode people. Join us as we jaw drop in awe over how bad these films can be at times. Let us take you into the bowels of movie making magic. We even made a drink called a “People Popper”. It's a Alien wanna be jamboree!
The new movie “The Endless” Just dropped on Digtial and Blu. So we drank the koolaid & dove into it's culty embrace for a review and a theories discussion on what it was all about this week. There's a little for those who have or haven't seen it. We sound an alarm before we spoil anything. So don't worry but a heads up for those who haven't seen it. We highly recommend you watch “Resolution” before you see it. Then we dive into the theories discussion about what it was all about. See what you think of our theories after if you have seen the movie. Plus we made a special #horrorshot for the movie that we can't put in the notes of the podcast without getting it removed and then talk about the news this past week.
It's time for another movie making #Graveplots episode complete with sound fx! That's right this week we pulled a listeners submission! This movie title is from writer Isaac Thorne called “Wicked Moon”. We have a feeling that it wasn't what he had in mind when he made the movie title but we made a doozy of a movie up. It's about a Werewolf named Chester who fights off mutant humanoid insects that break through the earth and feed on everyone. Of course we had the Werewolf fight the insect creatures. Of course it's done in a classic B movie style. So break out the pizza and beer. Plus we update you on some of the news this past week. Let's do this!
This week we devoured the new horror movie “Hereditary” by Ari Aster with our significant others Christina and Maus! They join us to do a Spoiler FREE review and then a spoiler discussion after to discuss our deep theories about what it was all about. See if we hit the nail on the head about your own theories of what the heck happened in the movie. Don't worry we sound the Spoiler Alert Apocalypse Siren for those who haven't seen it. PLUS, We even made a new #HorrorShot that should please every devil our there. A delicious “Apple Paimon” for your weekend to unravel! (Someone please take one and send it to us). So what are you waiting for? Get hit on every branch on the way down from the Hereditary tree with us!
In this weeks episode of Rip Offs Vol 1. On this special episode we will be looking at 2 movies that blatantly ripped off their predecsors to make a buck. First is “Mahakaal” from 1993 the Bollywood Nightmare on Elm Street rip off that was just too good not to review. Then we jump into a whammy of a rip off by Bruno Mattei who is known for quite a few knocks offs. His inspiration this time? Well, not just one movie but 2 rip offs in ONE! That takes talent. His movie technically called “Shocking Dark” in the states, “Terminator 2” in Italy and of course “Alienator” in Japan. That's right this movie tried to rip from both “Aliens” and “Terminator” to cash in on those big bucks. Plus we talk about the news and create a #horrorshot for “Shocking Dark” that is ... creative. You'll be screaming “Sarah” over and over after this episode.
Oh BOY! A new episode of weirdness! We pick 2 movies that take you down the rabbit hole of weirdness. Chock full of odd gore and confusion. We chose House (1977) a story about a girl and her friends who visit their aunt only to be eaten by the house itself in strange and happy ways. Then we dive into Mystics In Bali (1981) a story about a black magic and a woman’s head that removes from the body and feeds on the blood of woman and infants. What the heck? Yeah... We take a “Mac Attack” #horrorshot this week plus the news! Don't miss out!
