Nightmare Fuel--Episode One--Voodoo and Zombies

Good evening!

Welcome to the newly reVAMPED Nightmare Fuel Podcast! Formerly The Fly Paper Dungeon Podcast, Nightmare Fuel seeks to be better, darker, and more focused. The past thirty-nine episodes were just a warm up compared to what I have in store for you, my deviants!

This week, I detail the history and traditions of Voodoo and Zombies. I answer questions, "What is Voodoo?" And, "Where did zombies come from?"

The new show is massively different from the previous podcast.

Here are some of the differences...

First, the episodes are shorter and more focused. They'll usually clock in at around thirty minutes or so. This week's episode is about thirty-two minutes.

Second, there is no more, "News and Reviews" section. This was removed to both streamline the broadcast, and to stay on topic. I also felt that any "current" news would be ancient history for new listeners. For the latest news and reviews in horror, I'll refer listeners to
They also have free movies and shows on the site. I enjoy many a night browsing that site.

Third, there's no bumper music. Instead, I'll feature one song per week. This keeps the show focused. It also keeps the length and file size down.

Fourth, I'm using as my new hosting site. The show will still be broadcast from this site, via an embeddable player. You can also download via podbean. I'm going to see about putting the show on iTunes. This will make the show more accessible. I will also upload files to my old hosting site, This also allows the show to be archived on a permenant basis, and available for download without an iTunes account. (Just click the link below the player, same as before).

That's about all I can think of for right now.

On with the show!

A Brief Word on Changes

Hey everybody!

Just a quick reminder...

In two days, the Fly Paper Dungeon will be re-defield as NIGHTMARE FUEL. Sounds great, more killing. The name change is something that I'd been looking forward to for some time. It is to be official on July 1st. Make sure to update your URLs, RSS, email subscription etc. on that date.

Also, I'd like to inform you all that part of the new format change is the addition of theme months. July is ZOMBIE MONTH! Every episode I do in July will be about zombies, Voodoo, etc. Though I may drop in a bonus episode here and there about unrelated topics.

The schedule, so far, is this...


AUGUST--H.P. Lovecraft: Cthulhu Rises Again! 

SEPTEMBER: Ghost Films/Stories

OCTOBER: WEREWOLVES Among us! (plus, the annual Halloween reading)

All that, and more, in the coming months.

Time is at a premium now, so I've taken a break as I get the next episode (and next incarnation) of the podcast ready.

I will speak to you all on July 1st!

May he swallow your soul first!

Episode 39--Hellraiser (1987)

"We have such sights to show you..."

Our perceptions of heaven and hell vary over time. It also varies based on personal view point. For Frank Cotton, heaven and hell became one and the same--a place of infinite suffering, and infinite pleasure. Part Faust, part Hamlet--this staple of the genre has become Clive Barker's best known work. It has spawned several sequels, collectibles, and a comic book series.

Join me, Johnny Zombie, as I offer a feature-length commentary on Clive Barker's Hellraiser.

As always, you can indulge in the Cenobite goodness here. Or, you can download from

Download from Episode 39: Hellraiser (1987)

The Fly Paper Dungeon will change it's name on July 1st 2011. The new name of the podcast will be NIGHTMARE FUEL. Please, update your RSS feed and subscriptions on that date. I will send out furthur notices when the time comes.

Name Changes and New Format...NIGHTMARE FUEL!

Hallo, my deviants!

Before I post this week's episode, I want to inform all of you that starting on July 1st The Fly Paper Dungeon will have a new name. From that day forth it will be known as NIGHTMARE FUEL!

I've contemplated changing the name for ages, and even posted a few polls as to the subject. I feel that it's time for this change to occur. The podcast, and all that comes will it, will continue--same zombie time, same zombie channel. I'm just changing the name, and the format, a little.

I will post another reminder to update your bookmarks, RSS feeds, etc. when the time comes. I will also give reminders in the episodes to come. This podcast has been on the air for almost a year at this point. Though I receive little feedback, I still enjoy doing it. I know that those of you who follow via the Google Follower function, and the RSS feed, enjoy it as well.

This week's episode is coming up in a day or two. The topic will be...Clive Barker's Hellraiser.

Johnny Zombie,
Over and Out.

Episode 38--It Came From the 80's!

Good evening...

Tonight, Johnny Zombie celebrates his birthday (June 6th) with an episode about The 80's. While this is by no means an exhaustive look at the decade of youth and excess, it is a brief starting point for future episodes. Johnny Zombie counts down some of his favorite TV shows, movies, and toys from the era of his childhood. Subjects are broad in range, and include: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Nintendo, You Can't Do that on Television, and Danger Mouse!

As always, you can listen to the excess hair metal here. Or, you can download it from

I also mourn the loss of James Arness. Best know for his roles as Marshal Dillon on Gunsmoke, and as the titular character of Howard Hawkes' The Thing From Another World.
