NBC's Hannibal episode 5, Mukozuke, brings on the dialog: "He is the devil, Mr. Graham. He is smoke. You'll never catch the ripper. He won't be caught. If you want him you'll have to kill him." is just one of the many highlights discussed in this week's podcast. Join your hosts Thomas Mariana, Dave Dreher and Doc Rotten as this week they welcome special guest, director Christopher G. Moore, a self-proclaimed super fan who brings his exciting insight into the fold and adds a new dimension to the discussion.

HORROR NEWS TV HANNIBAL FAN PODCAST
Episode 5  – Mukozuke

Episode five continues the shows trend of exposing us all to extraordinary imagery while still maintaining one of the best-written story lines on TV.  Last weeks cliffhanger is dealt with in short order and in spectacular fashion thrusting us into a story-line that is filled with twists, turns and shocks that in the end puts a major character into a situation we never imagined could happen so early in this riveting second season.  It all adds up to yet another extraordinary episode and leaves us all wondering what else Hannibal and the crew could possibly have in store for us next week.

As always we want your feedback so drop us a line at thomas@horrornewstv.com or dave@horrornewstv.com or docrotten@horrornewstv.com and we’ll talk next week as we continue to bring you our recipe for fear with HORROR NEWS TV HANNIBAL FAN PODCAST.

Doc Rotten and The Black Saint continue their examination of the horror films of the Seventies with David Cronenberg's The Brood featuring Oliver Reed, Samantha Eggar and Art Hindle. The director injects a ton of personal subtext into the script causing The Black Saint to believe Cronenberg may be exorcising some personal demons with The Brood. The film, while containing its signature shock ending, is a sign of the kind of films Cronenberg would dive into in the Eighties with Scanners, Videodrome and The Fly. Doc and The Black Saint take a look at an early entry into the body horror subgenre.

 

Decades of Horror 1970s 
Episode 2 – The Brood (1979) 

 

Decades of Horror 1970s is a monthly podcast taking a look back at the genre films that shaped the co-hosts' love for horror films at an early age. The Black Saint and Doc Rotten re-examine films from the most diverse and bizarre decade of horror in the genre's history, from the decline of Hammer Horror films to the rise of summer blockbusters to exploitations films and grindhouse. Carpenter, Cronenberg, Landis, Hooper, Scott, Coscarelli, Romero, Fulci and Argento are only a few of the great directors that would rise to fame from 1970 to 1979.

Now that his celebrated and award winning short horror-comedy, Foodie,  festival circuit run is complete, director Christopher G. Moore is working on his next short, Disengaged. Every independent effort is ripe with its own challenges from production to casting talent to selecting music to editing to releasing. Each step requires forethought and planning; some things go as planned, others require the film maker to be flexible prepared to scramble at a moments notice to plan B. And many independent features, long form or short, also continually deal with the price tag, paying for the film itself - financing the dream.

 

Welcome to another episode of The Future of Horror, an interview podcast featuring new, upcoming talent in horror, The show is a sibling podcast to Horror News Radio, the official HorrorNews.Net podcast. With each episode, the show’s host, Doc Rotten, spotlights a director, an actor, a screenwriter, an effects artists, a film maker conquering hurdles and barriers to get their films made, to follow their passion, to make horror films.

 

Director Christopher G. Moore, buried in the post production work on his follow up short Disengaged, joins Doc to discuss his journey in getting Foodie completed and in front of audiences through festivals and screenings. He shares how he became attached to the project and how one unexpected long shoot has the team scrambling to find a new location at the last minute - and how he triumphed over those hurdles. He also teases his latest project Disengaged with a peak into the film's premise and a few of its secrets. He is also running an IndieGoGo crowd funding campaign to secure the funds to complete the editing of the film.

MOLD!, from Neil Meschino, is a spectacular micro-budget horror film that made a big impression when it played at the Nevermore Film Festival in Durham, NC a few years back.

She is spectacular and the best thing in 300: Rise of the Empire. Santos is also all about the over-the-top bloodshed and action the film offers while Dave is impressed with the 3D. Doc, however, has issues but admits it may be more about the screening experience than that actual film. You need to listen to understand that debacle. The grue-crew review the film in all its 3D gory mayhem.

 

00:40:30 – Top 5 Horror Quotes 
The Black Saint steps in for Thomas to bring his Top 5 for the week jumping on the crew's favorite line from the film bringing his Top 5 horror movie quotes. Santos relishes the opportunity to re-enact each and every quote and then puts Doc and Dave on the spot to drop their favorite as well.

 

  1. Dead Alive (1992) - "I kick ass for the Lord!" 
  2. John Carpenter's The Thing (1982) - "You gotta be f@%king kidding..." 
  3. They Live  (1988) - "I came here to kick ass and chew bubble gum. And I am all out of bubble gum." 
  4. Child's Play 3  (1991) - "Don't f@%k with the Chuck!" 
  5. Phantasm  (1979) - "BOY!" 

 

00:46:17 - Horror News of the Week for 03/10/2014 
Dave Dreher starts off the Horror News of the Week with the teaser trailer for Fear Clinic from director Robert Hall. Sticking with trailers, up next is the red band delight that is Stage Fright from director Jerome Sable featuring Minnie Driver and Meat Loaf. The action-packed TV spot and kick ass stills for The Raid 2 excite the crew. It looks like a 4K transfer of the original 1974 Texas Chainsaw Massacre is on its way to theaters this fall. And, last but not least, Mondo has release a spectacular exclusive poster to promote this summer's Godzilla.

Getting work as an actor can be a tough proposition, making a name for yourself in independent films or Hollywood is even harder. But this is the dream of every actor in the business. And for those who target the horror genre, they may even want to become the next Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, Lon Chaney, Peter Cushing or Christopher. With over 100 films to his IMDb credit in six years, the guest on this episode, Bill Oberst Jr., is well on his way to achieving that goal with his well deserved success as the go-to actor for cinematic mayhem.

 

Welcome to another episode of The Future of Horror, an interview podcast featuring new, upcoming talent in horror, The show is a sibling podcast to Horror News Radio, the official HorrorNews.Net podcast. With each episode, the show’s host, Doc Rotten, spotlights a director, an actor, a screenwriter, an effects artists, a film maker conquering hurdles and barriers to get their films made, to follow their passion, to make horror films.

 

Actor Bill Oberst Jr. is known for many of the roles he has tackled since he descended upon the horror genre in 2007. For some, the role that is best remembered is his performance in the Emmy Award winning film Take This Lollipop or his performance as Honest Abe in Abraham Lincoln vs Zombies or as the sheriff in A Haunting in Salem. With his intense expressions, imposing body language and demented delivery, Bill is known for his a number of different roles: the historical figures, the quiet monster and, thanks to films like Coyote, the manic mad man. He is now set to begin his college lecture tour called Still Waiting for my Close-Up: How I Made 100 Movies Without Really Trying kicking off March 18, 2014 at the Baldwin Hall Auditorium on the Truman University campus in Missouri.

Low budget film making allows its creator free reign with no boundaries or rules. Some directors, like Trevor Jeunger (Coyote), take advantage of this and make remarkable films, ones that feel dangerous where the audience is insecure about where and how far the director will take the story and his/her imagination. This freedom to go rogue is liberating for independent horror and few take as hard a look into the human psyche as the guest on this episode, Trevor Jeunger.

 

Welcome to another episode of The Future of Horror, an interview podcast featuring new, upcoming talent in horror, The show is a sibling podcast to Horror News Radio, the official HorrorNews.Net podcast. With each episode, the show’s host, Doc Rotten, spotlights a director, an actor, a screenwriter, an effects artists, a film maker conquering hurdles and barriers to get their films made, to follow their passion, to make horror films.

 

Director Trevor Jeunger is currently filming his follow up to his critically embraced film, Coyote. The film which stars fan favorite Bill Oberst Jr. is currently ramping up to a VOD/DVD release through Wild Eye Releasing. For the interview, Trevor reveals how the film Coyote came to be, his approach to the story and the themes and how Bill Oberst Jr. became involved as the lead. He also describes the very Cronenbergian visual elements that are scattered throughout his films and his appreciation of Dario Argento and Alejandro Jodorowsky. Trevor tops off his interview with his thoughts and views on the current state of independent films, where the freedoms and unbridled themes are being squandered by many artists trying to copy the successes of mass media urging his fellow directors to take advantage of their imaginations and limitless possibilities before them. It's a fascinating interview that should not be missed.

Not to be one-and-done, Dave follows this up with news about Godzilla, the full shot is finally out there, the roar is now fully realized and the trailer is coming (it's here!). Bates Motel on A&E is getting its own "after-show" much like The Talking Dead.

With the first season of NBC'S HANNIBAL, show runners Bryan Fuller and David Slade were able to take a highly successful film franchise and convert it to the small screen.  Taking a character like Hannibal Lecter and making him TV friendly is no small task; but, Mads Mikkelsen brings his own flair to the character and pulls it off.  Telling the story of Will Graham and Dr. Hannibal Lecter prior to the events in the film RED DRAGON, fans are treated week after the week to one bizarre event after another. On this episode of the podcast Thomas, Dave and Doc hit all the highlights.

Join us this week as we follow Donald Pleasence and Victor Wong on a metaphysical journey that will question our beliefs, our perception of reality and what is...evil. We are covering John Carpenter's Prince of Darkness on episode 65 of the Monster Movie Podcast.

Throughout 2014, Raleigh, North Carolina horror host Ormon Grimsby is bringing a classic film from the Eighties straight the Doc Rotten's door. This month, Ormon and Doc are revisiting the second film in Carpenter's apocalyptic trilogy, Prince of Darkness.

"This is not a dream... not a dream. We are using your brain's electrical system as a receiver. We are unable to transmit through conscious neural interference. You are receiving this broadcast as a dream."

Joining Doc on this episode is returning co-host Ormon Grimsby. He continues his adventures revisiting the classics of the 1980's by bringing the Scream Factory Blu-Ray over to Doc's mausoleum. They dastardly duo share their thoughts, insights and knowledge of the film on the podcast as they discuss how it was made, how Alice Cooper got involved and the quantum physics that are involved. Well, not too much on the last bit, it's all so confusing. Woot! But they do spend considerable amount of time on the topic of "just how long are those opening credits anyway?"

After recapping, reviewing and reliving the film, Doc and his co-hosts count down Ormon Grimsby's top 5 Apocalyptic movies, films that toy with the end of the world.

  1. Threads (1984)
  2. Miracle Mile (1988)
  3. The Last Night (1998)
  4. John Carpenter's The Thing (1982)
  5. Prince of Darkness (1987)
