Nightmare Fuel Podcast--Episode Four: Hodge Podge and Hellraiser Comic

Good evening, my lovely deviants!

This week, your humble host discusses two topics for the (Vincent) price of one.

First, in a segment called, The Five Minute Thought, I talk about collectors and fandom. I ask the question, "Can it go too far?" When we have people in costumes making marriage proposals, Star Wars--themed weddings, and children named for characters in movies and TV shows--does fandom go too far sometimes? While I think it's up to the individual, others may disagree. Either way, it's a topic worth discussing.

I also give an overview of the new Hellraiser comic book, SPOILER FREE! The new eight issue series is co-written by the man himself, CLIVE BARKER! A glorious return to the world of Cenobites, Kirsty Cotton, and puzzle boxes from hell!

Plus, I look forward to spending a Saturday at Steel City Con--Pgh's largest toy and comic convention!

Nightmare Fuel Podcast--Episode Three--Dawn of the Dead (1978)

Good evening, my deviants!

I hope your shotguns are loaded, and your shopping carts are full of MRE's. We're going to THE MALL! That's right--some shopping, a bit of fast food, shambling living dead roaming about. Oh, and make sure to check out the two for one sale at S-Mart. They have a deal on zombie dismemberment and disposal kits.

This blue light special is a seminal work in the history of horror cinema. It has influenced countless imitators, homages, and spoofs. Shot in Pennsylvania's Monroeville Mall (which is still inundated with souvenir hunters) Dawn of the Dead runs head wound to bloody head wound with it's predicessor, Night of the Living Dead. Both films went onto influence pretty much everything else in the zombie subgenre.

Walk the mall with Johnny Zombie, as he offers a personal view of Dawn of the Dead.

Nightmare Fuel Podcast--Episode Two--Night of the Living Dead (1968)

Hello my fiends!

Johnny Zombie shows off his roots--so to speak--by revisiting a homegrown classic.

In 1968, Night of the Living Dead shocked audiences. It's mix of gore, nudity, and post apocalyptic imagery gave birth to the modern horror film. Taboos were broken, and the seeds were sown for one of the longest running franchises in horror history--the..."Of The Dead" films.

This film also launched the careers of George A. Romero--Lord of all Zombies, and John Russo--Legendary Scribe of the Dead.

This is the film that started the zombie apocalypse sub-genre, and unleased hordes of the undead all over the world!
