SHV - S10E07 - Rob Zombie's Halloween (2007)

 No remake is seeking revenge in this season more than this one. In a season that has brought us movies that are generally beloved by horror fans we've hit a polarizing roadblock as the controversial Rob Zombie remakes perhaps the most beloved horror film of all time, John Carpenter's 1978 "Halloween". We'll look at the alternate realities where a Halloween vs Hellraiser crossover almost took place, Rob Zombie's path to get there, what John Carpenter thought of it and much more. Plus, musical guest Poltergeist returns with a brand new song called "Sleepaway"! Available where you find podcasts.

SHV - S10E06 - The Hills Have Eyes (2006)

Revenge of the remakes soldiers on with the BRUTAL 2006 remake of The Hills Have Eyes directed by Alexander Aja, produced by Wes Craven. We dig into all the gory goodness to look at this stylish, but very similar retelling with a sick & offensive coat of paint. You could also just call it the movie where the girl from Hocus Pocus involuntarily breast-feeds a deformed mutant cannibal.

 Enjoy this special bonus episode featuring an interview we conducted with JB Destiny, Boomer Payne, Lola Destiny, Blair Morgan, & actor Erik Thompson of Image 987/Cryptic Pictures out of Pittsburgh, PA to talk about their new film "The Dirty Hands Man" which premiered the night we recorded this interview. We'll go in depth behind what went into the making of the film covering the inspirations, special effects, makeup, acting performances and more. 

We'll also talk about George Romero's lost pilot for the Pro Wrestling show Iron City Ass-Kickers, also available from Image 987 and how Dan, JB & Boomer's wrestling careers all at least indirectly intersected at one point or another and they found they all had quite a bit in common, including mutual friends. We'll also get a great George Romero story about what inspired ICA and how George himself was a wrestling fan. This was a great time and we definitely hope to have the Image 987 crew back on.
