SHV - S12E01 - The Howling (1981)

 Welcome to the landmark 12th season of The Seeking Human Victims podcast. This is a "Spin off" season, going back to our wildly popular "Universal Monsters" season where the modern movie monster template was created and will be an annual feature here on the show.  Last year we looked at the children of "Creature From The Black Lagoon" with Season 7 - Aquatic Horror Beach Party, but now things are getting hairy! It's WOLFAMANIA brother, and the first begotten son of Lon Chaney Jr is the Werewolf craze of 1981 as we revisit the "Piranha" team of director Joe Dante and writer John Sayles for what is still regarded as one of if not the best werewolf films of all time....1981's THE HOWLING!

Plus we're always bringing the spooky jams....our musical guest this week all the way from Sweden are death metal ass-kickers RIBSPREADER with their track "The Bone Church" off the new comp "Death Metal Power From Beyond" out now from Horror Pain Gore Death Productions.  (Ribspreader appears courtesy )

SHV - S05E06 - The Wolf Man (1941)

In celebration of our upcoming season 12 - Wolfamania, here's a special re-release from our archives over at!

Even a man who is pure of heart and says his prayers by night, can enjoy our podcast when wolfsbane blooms and the autumn moon is bright. Or something like that. Our journey into Universal Monsters moves into the next decade as we meet the obvious heir apparent to be the face of this decade, Lon Chaney, Jr. His rise to this role wasn't exactly what you'd imagine when you normally think of hollywood nepotism, though and we'll learn the fascinating story of how he came to eclipse the shade of his legendary father even if he didn't realise he had done so.  We also learn how nothing you thought you knew about Werewolf lore is true and most all of it comes from writer Curt Siodmak and this film . Don't get bitten! Watch out for pentagrams magically appearing on your hand! And be sure to tune into this episode. 

Also we'll feature special musical guest "Poltergeist" of the HorrorCore Rap world and his song "Tall Man."
