“From Marquette, Canada today comes word of a second ship destroyed by an enormous beast according to her Captain, George LeMay. He really ought to stop smoking that stuff and try Virginia Golds.” Well, as you might have guessed, it wasn’t the stuff he’d been smoking. Join this episode’s Grue Crew - Chad Hunt, Whitney Collazo, Joseph Perry, and Jeff Mohr - as they leapfrog from the arctic to New York City to join the battle to stop The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms (1953)!

Decades of Horror: The Classic Era
Episode 69 – The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms (1953)

A ferocious dinosaur awakened by an Arctic atomic test terrorizes the North Atlantic and, ultimately, New York City.

IMDb

 

The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms is a landmark film for many reasons. Inspired by the success of a re-release of King Kong (1933) in 1952, it’s success, in turn, inspired Toho to move forward with the production of Godzilla (1954). It also gave Ray Harryhausen his first shot as head of special effects on a feature film and provided one of Ray Bradbury’s first paychecks for a feature film. The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms was also the first film featuring a giant creature that exists as the result of an atomic explosion. Put Eugène Lourié in the director’s chair, John L. Russell behind the camera, and enlist a supporting cast of topnotch character actors and you have a recipe for success.

All members of your Classic Era Grue-Crew love this film and appreciate its place in film history. They gush over Harryhausen’s stop-motion animation skills and dedication, the direction, cinematography, script, and cast. If you haven’t seen this film for a while, it might be time to revisit The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms. It’s a gem of a film. 

Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror: The Classic Era is part of the Decades of Horror 3-week rotation with the 1970s and 1980s. In three weeks, the next episode in their very flexible schedule will be Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy (1953).

"I'm supposed to read you your rights. But you're in *Mooney's* jail, and in Mooney's jail, you ain't *got* no rights!" I wonder what the Mooney ventriloquist dummy thinks about that? Join your faithful Grue Crew - Crystal Cleveland, Chad Hunt, Bill Mulligan, and Jeff Mohr - as they go on an outing to the big top for some cotton candy and Killer Klowns from Outer Space (1988).

Decades of Horror 1980s
Episode 150 – Killer Klowns from Outer Space (1988)

Aliens who look like clowns come from outer space and terrorize a small town.

IMDb

 

You’re faithful Grue-Crew are a little scattered in this episode. You see, due to a technical glitch, everyone sounded like Killer Klowns on the first go-around so they had to record this episode a second time. They got a little slap-happy in the process and, well, they now know whether or not Crystal likes ice cream. 

At any rate, they do get to Killer Klowns from Outer Space and reach a quick, unanimous consensus: they love it! They discuss the Chiodo Brothers, John Vernon’s turn as Officer Mooney, and the splendid and colorful look and feel of the film. Jeff was the Killer Klowns virgin of the crew, but he got so excited after their first attempt at recording the episode, he purchased the Blu ray and took a dive into the extras. This was indeed a great pick by Crystal and she recounts exactly why she loves it so much. Bill is impressed with the practical effects and sympathizes with the problems that had to be dealt with while filming something like Killer Klowns from Outer Space that seems to be a creation like no other. From Chad, we learn about yet another childhood fear of his.

If you haven’t seen this cult classic, you owe yourself a favor. At this writing, it is available to stream and on a fine Arrow Video Blu ray.

Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror 1980s is part of the Decades of Horror 3-week rotation with The Classic Era and the 1970s. In episode 151, the 80s Grue-Crew will take a broom to Street Trash (1987). Oh yes, they will.

"-- Zuni doll gibberish --" You might not know what he’s saying, but you’re definitely not hanging around to find out! Join your faithful Grue Crew - Doc Rotten, Chad Hunt, Bill Mulligan, and Jeff Mohr - as they relive the impact they experienced when they first watched Trilogy of Terror (1975) from Dan Curtis.

Each of the members of the Grue-Crew for this episode viewed Trilogy of Terror during its television premiere in 1975 and it made an indelible mark on each of their psyches. Of course, that mark, the one that created nightmares and lost sleep, is left by the final segment in which the Zuni doll runs amok. The Grue-Crew also has a heightened appreciation for Karen Black’s acting abilities after rewatching the film and her four performances therein. They also all agree that the terror in the final segment is just as strong and effective as it was in 1975. If you haven’t seen Dan Curtis’ Trilogy of Terror recently, you owe yourself a rewatch. It’s that good. At least, the Zuni-warrior doll piece is that good!

“It is my considered opinion that rat No. 4 is sitting inside that cat.” Ha! The jokes on you, Jennings! It’s actually in your pocket. Join this episode’s Grue Crew - Chad Hunt Whitney Collazo, Joseph Perry, and Jeff Mohr - as they take a trip to Marineland to see the Gill-Man in his second theatrical outing, Revenge of the Creature (1955).

Decades of Horror: The Classic Era
Episode 68 – Revenge of the Creature (1955)

The Creature from the Black Lagoon has been captured by scientists and transported to an aquarium in south Florida. Once there, he becomes attracted to lovely female scientist Helen Dobson and manages to escape and kidnap her, and heads to Jacksonville, with her real-life love in pursuit.

IMDb

 

Universal International Pictures followed up the success of Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954) the following year with Revenge of the Creature, another 3-D entry to the Univeral Horror catalog. Chad Hunt continues his love for the Gill-man, first revealed in episode 3 of Decades of Horror: The Classic Era. Your loyal Grue-Crew note the differences between this film and its predecessor, both in the pacing of the story and in the Florida setting. They are also impressed by the performance turned in by Lori Nelson as scientist Helen Dobson. Of course, Clint Eastwood also comes up in conversation. They all recommend Revenge of the Creature despite its marked departure from the feel and tone of the first film in the series.

Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror: The Classic Era is part of the Decades of Horror 3-week rotation with the 1970s and 1980s. In three weeks, the next episode in their very flexible schedule will be The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms (1953).

Longtime listeners may be sensing a bit of déjà vu with this episode. Creepshow was already discussed by Doc Rotten, Thomas Mariani, Christopher G. Mohr and Dave Dreher on episode 94 in October 2016. The current Decades of Horror 1980s Grue-Crew, however, didn’t want to be left out and because this fall saw the premiere of Creepshow the TV series on the Shudder streaming service, they thought it was the perfect time for another 1980s double tap.

When a movie is directed by George A. Romero with special makeup effects by Tom Savini; is written by Stephen King; features a comic book with cover art by Jack Kamen and interior art by Berni Wrightson; and a cast that includes Ed Harris, Leslie Nielsen, Ted Danson, Hal Holbrook, Adrienne Barbeau, Fritz Weaver, and E. G. Marshall; do you need to know anything else? Neither did the Decades of Horror 1980s Grue-Crew.

Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror 1980s is part of the Decades of Horror 3-week rotation with The Classic Era and the 1970s. For their historic episode 150, the 80s Grue-Crew will Killer Klowns from Outer Space (1988).

"The saliva is very contagious. It dribbles into open wounds and cuts, and causes immediate infection. So don’t let anybody bite you." That sounds like universally good advice! Join your faithful Grue Crew - Doc Rotten, Chad Hunt, Bill Mulligan, and Jeff Mohr - as they try to figure out the nature of the body horror David Cronenberg dreamt up in Rabid (1977)!

Decades of Horror 1970s
Episode 107 – Rabid (1977)

A young woman develops a taste for human blood after experimental plastic surgery, and her victims turn into blood-thirsty zombies, leading into a city-wide epidemic.

- IMDb

 

As the entire Gruesome Nation already knows, the Soska sisters’ version of Rabid is scheduled for release on December 13, 2019. With that in mind, your Decades of Horror 1970s Grue-Crew decided the time was right for them to cover Cronenberg’s original version of Rabid, released in 1977. 

Jeff is completely unaware that he manages to confuse Ivory Soap (9944/100% pure) with Ivory Snow, “the safest possible soap for diapers and baby clothes” that featured Marilyn Chambers on the box just prior to her career as a pornographic film actress. In his defense, they are both made by Proctor and Gamble and come from the same “Ivory” line of products. Besides that, he loves Cronenberg’s second feature film and finds the “science” behind Rose’s condition fascinating.

The entire Grue-Crew first caught Rabid (1977) on an early-80s video store rental, ... except for Doc. He broke his Rabid cherry with a big-screen viewing, is thrilled with the results, and is impressed by Chambers’ acting in the film. Bill identifies Rabid, the second of Cronenberg’s films, as a sign of obvious growth and of bigger things to come. Chad talks about some of Cronenberg’s later films and the entire Grue-Crew review Ivan Reitman’s body of work as a producer. 

Rabid (1977) receives a unanimous recommendation from the 70s Grue-Crew and each of them is also looking forward to the release of the Soska sisters’ remake! At this writing, Rabid (1977) is available for streaming on Shudder and on Blu ray from Scream Factory. So listen to the podcast, watch Cronenberg’s original, then go see the Soska sisters’ remake.

“Many men have gone there. Few have returned. I have returned. After fifteen years... I have returned.” Dr. Vitus Werdegast delivers this line with a grave determination that tells you he has vengeance on his mind. Join this episode’s Grue Crew - Joseph Perry, Chad Hunt, and Jeff Mohr - as they witness Werdegast exact his gruesome revenge in The Black Cat (1934), a Universal production featuring Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff in the first of their pairings.

Decades of Horror: The Classic Era
Episode 67 – The Black Cat (1934)

American honeymooners in Hungary become trapped in the home of a Satan-worshiping priest when the bride is taken there for medical help following a road accident.

- IMDb

 

Edgar Ulmer’s The Black Cat shares nothing with Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Black Cat” beside a title and the presence of the titular character. Your loyal Grue-Crew is astounded by the film’s subject matter which includes genocide, PTSD, satanic worship, human sacrifice, and skinning a person. Being the first of eight Lugosi and Karloff pairings, this episode’s crew also thinks it is the best. Joseph identifies another of Ulmer’s films as a personal favorite while Chad is enamored of Lugosi getting a chance to play a good guy, or at least not the worst guy. Jeff speculates on how the film’s release date just prior to full implementation of the Hays Code might have affected the plot.

If you haven’t seen The Black Cat, this episode’s co-hosts highly recommend you seek it out, either online or in Scream Factory’s Blu ray boxed-set that includes the film along with three other Universal pairings of Lugosi and Karloff.

"When the heliotrope starts growing among rough rocks and the full moon shines at night, in a certain area of the Earth, a man turns into a wolf." How could they forget the part where the man is bitten by a Yeti? Join your faithful Grue Crew - Doc Rotten, Chad Hunt, Bill Mulligan, and Jeff Mohr - as they do their best to make sense of the mess known as Fury of the Wolfman (1972).

Decades of Horror 1970s
Episode 106 – Fury of the Wolfman (1972)

Waldemar Daninsky, a lone survivor of a Tibetan expedition, returns home to find his wife has been unfaithful to him. Carrying the curse of the pentagram (or pentagon, as stated by the monk who nursed him back to health), the fury of the wolfman is unleashed! After disposing of his cheating spouse, he finds himself captive in a castle by a female mad scientist conducting mind control experiments. In a vain attempt at escape, he discovers the freaks leftover from past experiments dwelling in the dungeons.

- IMDb (Written by Humberto Amador)

 

Your loyal Grue-Crew thought it was high time to include a Paul Naschy film in the canon of 1970s icons they’ve discussed. Unfortunately, they chose Fury of the Wolfman, quite possibly the worst of Naschy’s films, even by his own account. Chad and Jeff are Naschy virgins and could not believe what they were seeing and hearing. The dubbed dialogue made so little sense, Jeff felt like he was watching something produced by the folks from the Bad Lip Reading website. Chad thought it might have been the longest 83 minutes of his life and admitted to being completely flummoxed. Doc and Bill spent much of the time discussing Naschy films they should have watched instead of Fury of the Wolfman. Understandably, the lot of them get sidetracked a few times in their discussion. In the end, they enjoying many of the practical effects including Naschy’s version of the wolfman makeup.

As tough as it was to watch, the 70s Grue-Crew had a great time discussing it and vow to cover another Naschy film within six months. If you are so inclined, a poor version of Fury of the Wolfman is currently available on Amazon Prime.

“You’ll never get rid of me, Toddy.” Somehow, when Boris Karloff says this line, you believe him. Join this episode’s Grue Crew - Whitney Collazo, Chad Hunt, and Jeff Mohr - as they try to keep from getting snatched and “Burked” in The Body Snatcher (1945), an RKO Val Lewton production featuring Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi in their last of eight collaborations.

Decades of Horror: The Classic Era
Episode 66 – The Body Snatcher (1945)

A ruthless doctor and his young prize student find themselves continually harassed by their murderous supplier of illegal cadavers.

- IMDb

 

Your loyal Grue-Crew can’t gush enough over The Body Snatcher and considering the cast and crew, it’s easy to see why! This one is Whitney’s pick and she gives her customary, insightful point-of-view into the motivations of the story’s characters. According to Chad, Karloff gives what might be his best performance and even though Lugosi’s part is small, his character and one pivotal scene with Karloff are critical to the film’s success. Jeff reveals his growing fan-boy crush on all things Lewton and wallows in cast-related and historical trivia as usual. This time he’s even talking about Bill Williams and Robert Clarke.

As a whole, the Classic Era Grue-Crew love the look and feel of The Body Snatcher and give it the highest recommendation!

Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror: The Classic Era is part of the Decades of Horror 3-week rotation with the 1970s and 1980s.

“Oh, get off your antique manners. Hill. I’m a professional scientist. Let’s go." And whatever you do, don’t call Dr. Susan Drake a “great little scientist.” Join your faithful Grue Crew - Crystal Cleveland, Chad Hunt, Bill Mulligan, and Jeff Mohr - as they battle pseudo-Lovecraftian horrors for the fourth straight episode. Admittedly, it’s not Dagon, but it is Humanoids from the Deep (1980).

Decades of Horror 1980s
Episode 148 – Humanoids from the Deep (1980)

Scientific experiments backfire and produce horrific mutations - half man, half fish - which terrorize a small fishing village by killing the men and raping the women.

IMDb

 

What can you say? It’s obvious in the first five minutes of the film that Humanoids from the Deep is from 1980 and Roger Corman. You know upfront that breasts will be revealed, blood will be spilled, and lots of stuff will get “blowed up real good.” Throw in generous portions of misogyny, racism, and interspecies rape (The poster says, “They mated,” but let’s face it - what’s happening is not consensual) and you have the wonder known as Humanoids from the Deep

There’s plenty to offend viewers watching the film through current day lenses. Chad, however, explains that Humanoids from the Deep is a pure 1980s horror film and must be viewed as a product of its time and the rest of the Grue-Crew agree. Crystal wonders why there are no female humanoids and questions the science behind the science fiction. Bill joins in until they all realize the folly in which they’re engaged. Stupid quotes from the film get Jeff going but he manages to stop giggling long enough to point out the involvement of James Horner, an Academy Award-winning composer.

If you like Roger Corman and you like your 80s horror sans any resemblance of political correctness, Humanoids from the Deep should be just the entree to satisfy your appetite.

Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror 1980s is part of the Decades of Horror 3-week rotation with The Classic Era and the 1970s. In three weeks, the 80s Grue-Crew’s next film will be the George Romero and Stephen King collaboration known as Creepshow (1982).

"Yuko, I am your... [father]." No, this line is not from a Japanese foretelling of Return of the Jedi, but to quote Norman Bates, “Oh God, mother! Blood! Blood!” We’re talking a garden hose with a spray nozzle. Join your faithful Grue Crew - Doc Rotten, Chad Hunt, Bill Mulligan, and Jeff Mohr - as they check out The Vampire Doll (1970), yet another vampire film (sort of), this time from Japan and Toho.

Decades of Horror 1970s
Episode 105 – The Vampire Doll (1970

Keiko and her friend are trying to find her missing brother after he disappeared visiting his girlfriend Yuko.

- IMDb

 

The Vampire Doll, aka Legacy of Dracula, aka The Night of the Vampire, aka Bloodsucking Doll, aka Yûrei yashiki no kyôfu: Chi wo sû ningyô, aka ,,, well, you get the picture ... was the first of three Japanese vampire films released by Toho, the follow-ups being Lake of Dracula (1971) and Evil of Dracula (1974). The three films were packaged as The Bloodthirsty Trilogy in a 2018 Blu-ray release from Arrow Films.

Bill loves the beauty-mixed-with-evil exuding from the film’s “vampire” and points out the prevalence of deflating hands found in vampire “deaths” of the era. Chad wonders what disease makes Yûko’s fiance’s face look so nasty and is touched by Genzô’s loyalty and caring for Yûko and her mother. The relationships between the film’s characters aren’t clear to Doc, but it turns out his Grue-mates aren’t completely clear about them either. Jeff thinks highly of The Vampire Doll but still likes Lake of Dracula a little better. Of course, each of them got all glassy-eyed over the bloody finale. Who wouldn’t?

Check out Decades of Horror 1970s - Episode 86 - Lake of Dracula (1971) for more Gruesome Magazine content on The Bloodthirsty Trilogy. At this writing, the three films included in The Bloodthirsty Trilogy are all available to stream on Amazon Prime. Japanese vampires and Toho! If you haven’t seen them, what are you waiting for?

“Perhaps the sight of beauty makes him lose control of himself, so he kills.” Yeah, that makes no sense at all, but Mario Bava still makes it work.  Join this episode’s Grue Crew - Joseph Perry, Chad Hunt, and Jeff Mohr - as they discover that the latest trend in fashion is murder in Mario Bava’s Blood and Black Lace (1964).

Decades of Horror: The Classic Era
Episode 65 – Blood and Black Lace (1964)

A masked, shadowy killer brutally murders the models of a scandalous fashion house in Rome.

- IMDb

 

Blood and Black Lace, aka Sei donne per l'assassino, is Mario Bava’s seminal work establishing many of the tropes commonly used in giallo films. Your Classic Era Grue-Crew is stunned by the vivid colors and cinematography in Blood and Black Lace. Jeff does his usual deep dive, this time into Cameron Mitchell’s career and also delves into the dubbing and subtitles (Shhhh! Let him think it’s interesting.)  Although Chad and Joseph are not big giallo fans, they most definitely appreciate Bava’s genius. Joseph tells about his first experience with the bathtub drowning scene when he saw it as a child and how it stuck with him for decades. Chad praises Paul Frees, who dubbs most of the film’s male parts, and has equally high praise for the quality of Shudder’s streaming version of Blood and Back Lace.

Your Grue-Crew highly recommends Blood and Black Lace, Bava’s splendid and unique christening of the giallo subgenre. For more on Mario Bava’s work, check out the following Gruesome Magazine content:

“Trust is a tough thing to come by these days.” To paraphrase Bo Diddley, “Who do you trust?”  You don’t have to walk 47 miles of barbed wire or wear a cobra-snake for a necktie to know that the answer to the question is, “Nobody!” Join your faithful Grue Crew - Chad Hunt, Crystal Cleveland, Bill Mulligan, and Jeff Mohr - as they, arguably, consort with Lovecraftian horrors for the third straight episode, this time in Antarctica with John Carpenter’s The Thing (1982).

Decades of Horror 1980s
Episode 147 – The Thing (1982)

A research team in Antarctica is hunted by a shape-shifting alien that assumes the appearance of its victims.

- IMDb

 

If you’re a loyal fan of Decades of Horror 1980s, you’ll remember that Doc Rotten, Christopher G. Moore, and Thomas Mariani already covered John Carpenter’s The Thing on episode 93. So why another episode on the same film? Maybe it’s because The Thing is Chad’s favorite horror movie of all time and he got to pick the film for this episode and maybe it’s because the rest of the Grue-Crew was just as excited about covering The Thing as Chad was. At any rate, here you go.

Chad talks about his love for The Thing and the effect it had on his artistic work. The toll that working on the film had on Rob Bottin as Special Makeup Effects Creator and Designer is described by Bill while Crystal opines that The Thing is Carpenter's best film. Jeff, inspired by Peter Watts’ short story “The Things,” starts a discussion around the Thing’s point-of-view and motivation as depicted in the film. Your 1980s Grue-Crew love talking The Thing and are impressed with how a 37-year-old film is able to spark such discussions. They could probably spend a couple more episodes discussing the merits of this landmark film.

"Death is not the worst. There are things more horrible than death." Was Count Dracula talking about working with Mr. Kinski? Oh, wait. He was Mr. Kinski! Join your faithful Grue Crew - Doc Rotten, Chad Hunt, Bill Mulligan, and Jeff Mohr - as they check out yet another 1979 film telling the story of the undead count, Werner Herzog’s Nosferatu the Vampyre starring Klaus Kinski, Isabelle Adjani, and Bruno Ganz.

Decades of Horror 1970s
Episode 104 – Nosferatu the Vampyre (1979)

Count Dracula moves from Transylvania to Wismar, spreading the Black Plague across the land. Only a woman pure of heart can bring an end to his reign of horror.

- IMDb

 

What do you know? The Decades of Horror 1970s Grue-Crew takes on another vampire film from 1979. Doc thinks Kinski’s Nosferatu is lacking a certain force of personality. (Pssst! He actually uses a couple of very different words.) Roland Topor’s portrayal of Renfield trips Chad’s trigger, especially with his laugh. Jeff is impressed with Herzog’s cinematic eye and compares some of the scenes in Nosferatu the Vampyre with those of Nosferatu (1922). Bill gives his views on Kinski the man and Kinski the actor - hint: they are not the same - and discusses the differences in the story as told in Nosferatu the Vampyre and in the story as told in other Dracula films. Of course, their appreciation of Isabelle Adjani goes without saying, but don’t get them started on Herzog’s version of Van Helsing!

All-in-all, the 70s Grue-Crew thinks Nosferatu the Vampyre is a must-watch for most horror fans. Listeners might also want to check out Decades of Horror: The Classic Era Episode 21 - Nosferatu (1922).

Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror 1970s is part of the Decades of Horror 3-week rotation with The Classic Era and the 1980s.
