Apr 24, 2019

"Are you telling me that an ape that lived two million years ago got out of that crate, killed the baggage man and put him in there, then locked everything up neat and tidy, and got away?"  Damn straight! Better bring in Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee to save the planet! Join your faithful Grue Crew - Doc Rotten, Chad Hunt, Bill Mulligan, and Jeff Mohr - as they take a ride on the Trans-Siberian Railroad, better known to those who ride it as the Horror Express.

Decades of Horror 1970s
Episode 94 – Horror Express (1972)

In 1906, in China, a British anthropologist discovers a frozen prehistoric creature and must transport it to Europe by train.

IMDb

  • Director: Eugenio Martín (as Gene Martin)
  • Writers: Arnaud d'Usseau, Julian Zimet
  • Producer: Bernard Gordon
  • Music: John Cacavas
  • Featured Cast:
    • Christopher Lee as Professor Sir Alexander Saxton
    • Peter Cushing as Dr. Wells
    • Silvia Tortosa as Countess Irina Petrovski (dubbed by Olive Gregg)
    • Telly Savalas as Captain Kazan
    • Alberto de Mendoza as Father Pujardov (dubbed by Robert Rietti)
    • Helga Liné as Natasha (dubbed by Olive Gregg)
    • Alice Reinheart as Miss Jones (dubbed by Olive Gregg)
    • Julio Peña as Inspector Mirov (dubbed by Roger Delgado)
    • Ángel del Pozo as Yevtushenko
    • José Jaspe as Conductor Konev
    • George Rigaud as Count Marion Petrovski

Does it need to be said how much Doc loves Horror Express? Peter Cushing! ‘Nuff said? Bill points out this is one of the few films in which Peter Cushing’s and Christopher Lee’s characters are working together and are both card-carrying members of the “good guys club.” The resemblance of Horror Express to John W. Campbell’s “Who Goes There?” was immediately obvious to Chad and made it a film he loves to love. Jeff digs Telly Savalas’ bigger-than-life performance and discusses producer Bernard Gordon’s writing career and time on the blacklist. The Grue Crew unanimously thought the “dinosaur-on-the-inside-back-of-the-eyeball” gimmick was pretty ridiculous but still cool as hell.

Basically, your faithful Grue Crew could not heap enough praise on Horror Express. Doc and Jeff pretty much geeked out on the quality and all the extras on the recent Arrow Blu-ray release and think everyone in the universe should own it!

“Dead people who walk! You still don’t believe in zombies?” Of course we do! Join this episode’s Grue Crew - Whitney Collazo, Joseph Perry, Chad Hunt, and Jeff Mohr - as they take in some Lucha libre featuring the great El Santo in Santo vs. the Zombies (original title: Santo contra los zombies).

Decades of Horror: The Classic Era
Episode 54 – Santo vs. the Zombies (1962)

Wrestling superhero Santo battles an evil scientist who has created a race of zombies.

IMDb

 

  • Director: Benito Alazraki
  • Writers: Benito Alazraki, Antonio Orellana, Fernando Osés
  • Featured Cast:
    • Santo (Rodolfo Guzmán Huerta) as Santo / the Saint
    • Lorena Velázquez as Gloria Sandoval/Gloria Rutherford (US version)
    • Armando Silvestre as Lt. Sanmartin / Lt. Savage
    • Jaime Fernández as Det. Rodriguez
    • Dagoberto Rodríguez as Det. Chief Almada
    • Irma Serrano as Det. Isabel
    • Carlos Agostí as Genaro / Uncle Herbert
    • Ramón Bugarini as Rogelio / Roger, the male nurse
    • Alejandro Cruz as Black Shadow, a wrestler (as Black Shadow)
    • Gory Guerrero as Wrestler (as Gori Guerrero)
    • Sugi Sito as Wrestler
    • El Gladiador as Wrestler

Needless to say, your Classic Era Grue Crew loves Santo movies and Santo vs. the Zombies is no exception. Whitney recounts the importance of Santo in Mexico as relayed to her by her father, while Joseph schools everyone on some interesting information about lucha libre and luchadores. It is the classic battle between good and evil that warms Chad’s heart and as usual, he brings in a Batman connection. Jeff finally turns the corner as he too now loves the Santo movies and recommends director Benito Alazraki’s Curse of the Doll People (Muñecos infernales, 1961) as a decidedly creepy Mexican horror film.

Treat yourself to a fun-filled experience and watch Santo vs. the Zombies! While you’re at it, make it a double feature with Santo and Blue Demon Against the Monsters and revisit episode 19 of Decades of Horror: The Classic Era on that film. Better yet, let your Grue Crew know your favorite Santo movie. They expect to be covering more!

The Decades of Horror: The Classic Era Grue Crew plan to release a new episode every other week. Hey, where else will you hear podcasts on films ranging from The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920) to The Curse of Frankenstein (1957) to Maneater of Hydra (1967)? The next episode in our very flexible schedule will be Carl Th. Dreyer’s Vampyr (1932).

Please send us feedback on the films we cover, ideas for future films, or the podcast itself. After all, without you, we’re just four unmasked luchadores talking about the films we love. Send us an email at feedback@gruesomemagazine.com or leave us a message, a review, or a comment at GruesomeMagazine.com, iTunes, the Gruesome Magazine Horror News Radio Facebook group or your friendly neighborhood podcast aggregator.

To each of you from each of us, “Thank you so much for listening!”

Join Doc Rotten and Vanessa Thompson for a quick review of the super hero sensation SHAZAM! And, by "quick review", we mean 45 minutes of joyful discussion all things DC's "Captain Marvel." The film is directed by horror director David F. Sandberg who previously handled directing chores on LIGHTS OUT and ANNABELLE: CREATION. So, how does he handle a superhero film? Let's just say, "As well as James Wan!"

The review is mostly spoiler free until the end where we dive feet first into all the spoilers after a "spoiler warning." Let us know what you think of SHAZAM! in the show note or by reaching out to feedback@gruesomemagazine.com.

SHAZAM!

We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson's case, by shouting out one word - SHAZAM! - this streetwise fourteen-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult superhero Shazam.

"I don’t mind making it on the lawn. You wanna make it on the lawn?" Sure sounds like a line of dialogue from a movie from the 1970s, but a horror movie? Join your faithful Grue Crew - Doc Rotten, Chad Hunt, Bill Mulligan, and Jeff Mohr - as they follow the sound of Donovan’s voice and end up somewhere between night and dawn with George Romero’s Season of the Witch.

Decades of Horror 1970s
Episode 93 – Season of the Witch (1972)

Synopsis:

A bored, unhappy suburban housewife gets mixed up in witchcraft and murder.


- IMDb

 

  • Writer/Director: George A. Romero
  • Featured Cast:
    • Jan White as Joan Mitchell
    • Raymond Laine as Gregg Williamson
    • Ann Muffly as Shirley Randolph
    • Joedda McClain as Nikki Mitchell
    • Bill Thunhurst as Jack Mitchell
    • Esther Lapidus as Sylvia
    • Neil Fisher as Doctor Miller
    • Virginia Greenwald as Marion Hamilton
    • Bill Hinzman as The Intruder

Season of the Witch, aka Jack’s Wife, aka Hungry Wives, is one of Romero’s lesser known works but it still packs enough content to make it worth the watch. This one was Chad’s pick and he managed to find a film by the legendary director that none of the Grue Crew had seen! Bill discusses how the story’s premise is grounded in the women’s liberation movement of the ‘70s and makes sure to point out that Bill Hinzman, who plays The Intruder in this film, also played the ghoul that killed Barbara’s brother in Night of the Living Dead. The more Doc talks about the film, the more he finds to like, especially Raymond Laine’s performance as Gregg, the hip, philandering college professor. Jeff, on the other hand, takes a liking to Ann Muffly’s portrayal of Joan’s friend Shirley and doesn’t take kindly to the fake-pot-prank Gregg plays on her at a party. The entire Grue Crew commended Jan White for her lead performance and agree that true horror fans, especially Romero completists, should see Season of the Witch.
