Episode 18--The Women of Horror (Top 5)

Good evening, children of the night...

Vamps, vixens, survivor girls, and scream queens.


The women of horror are known by many titles. They all have one thing in common--THEY ROCK! This episode is all about the ladies of horror, as I count down my top five favorite fearless female characters. From the gutsy Ellen Ripley, to the sassy Sookie Stackhouse--Johnny Zombie courts beauty, danger, and talent. Kudos are given not only the characters, but the actresses that brought them to life.

This is a light-hearted escape into fandom. A look at women who deserve admiration and respect-- because they could save your hide from snarling alien beasts, and guys with chainsaws (if only I could find a woman like this in real life...yet I digress).

A memorial is given to Ingrid Pitt, the late, great, queen of the night! A staple of Hammer Horror films, Ms. Pitt passed away on November 23rd, at the age of 73. She co-starring with Peter Cushing and Sir Christopher Lee in many Hammer Films. She originated the role of Le Fanu's lesbian vampire icon Carmilla. During her fantastic career, she also co-starred with Clint Eastwood, in the WWII action flick Where Eagles Dare. She will be greatly missed.

The list of Heroines and Villainesses is as follows...

1. Lt. Ellen Ripley

                                                                2. Laurie Strode

3. Ginger Fitzgerald

4. Sookie Stackhouse

5. Carmilla


A breakdown of personality traits is given, as well as commentary from your's truly. :)

Episode 17--HEAVY METAL

This week Johnny Zombie straps on his broadsword and lazer gun, as he takes a ride on HEAVY METAL--the animated fantasy classic.

A ground-breaking work of adult animation--Heavy Metal was the work of over a one-hundred animators, and a team of talented writers and artists, and a brilliant cast. The art and words of Richard Corbin, Bernie Wrightson, Dan O'Bannon, and Juan Giminez jumps off the screen!

Inspired by the self-proclaimed, "adult illustrated fantasy magazine, Heavy Metal is a midnight movie classic that has only grown in stature over it's 30 year history." Heavy Metal continues to rock audiences with its masterful blend of sci-fi, action, horror, comedy, and sexuality (everything a growing geek, or geekette, needs). 

Also discussed is the upcoming film Dead Woman's Hollow, which is being shot in my home state of Pennsylvania. You can help contribute to the making of this film, and learn more about it here: http://www.indiegogo.com/Dead-Womans-Hollow
Support indie filmmaking!

Also, please support a dear friend...  

Leda Locke, a good friend to both Dillon and I, needs your help. She is facing breast cancer, and the prognosis is good. She will most likely avoid the difficulties associated with radiation and chemotherapy, however, she will require a double mastectomy. Some of the essential precedures are covered by her husband's insurance--however, there is still a significant shortfall.


This is where you, the listeners, can help. The goal of this podcast is to raise at least 5,000 dollars to go toward's Leda's treatment fund. I know that times are tough, but if everybody who listens to this podcast were to donate what they can, they could easily make a difference. Even if you can't afford to give, pass this info on to someone who can. Breast cancer not only affects the women in our respective lives, but the friends, significant others, and families of those confronting the illness.

You can donate to Leda Locke's Treatment Fund via her Paypal: LedaLocke@yahoo.com

As a special "thank you" to listeners of this cast, Dillon and I will record an audiobook of horror tales that will be available only to donors. It will be emailed to donors, and will be in the MP3 format, so you can listen to it anytime and anywhere.

As always, you can listen to the metallic goodness here, or download from Archive.org

Episode 16--The Necronomicon

"Inked in human blood, this was a book never meant for the living to read..."

This week, Johnny Zombie continues to recover from the plague. While recouperating, I did some light reading, which gave me nightmares something awful.

This week's episode is dedicated to Dillon's review of Theater Pub 9's Lovecraft Festival, and THE "most famous book that never was," The Necronomicon.

Also discussed is the recent passing of super producer Dino De Laurentiis (he will be greatly missed). 

Also, I call for donations for Leda Locke.
