Greetings creepy people, and welcome back to Horror Business, the podcast that loves you no matter what. As always you are in for a treat!
This episode we’re joined by the one and only Joe Yanick of the wonderful Small Screen Cinema podcast to help us unpack the annual Exhumed Films Horrorthon, a twenty four hour horror marathon the weekend before Halloween in Philadelphia. In addition to discussing the movies with Joe, we were also lucky enough to talk to some people at the Horrorthon on various things, including but not limited to Alice Cooper and the eternal question of ‘Is Pumpkinhead actually any good?’ (Spoiler: yes. It is). I, Justin, unfortunately had to bow out about halfway through the ‘thon due to some personal issues, so there were some movies that played that I couldn’t offer any input on, but Liam and Joe pick up the slack with the movies I hadn’t seen. We apologize in advance for the rough sound quality and simply ask that you find it in yourselves to bear it out for us because we would do the same for you.
The theme for this year’s horrorthon was the golden decade of horror: the 1980s. The movies shown were, in chronological order, Motel Hell, The Boogens, Visiting Hours, Cujo, Eyes Of Fire, Night Shadows aka Mutant, Monster Dog, Scream For Help, The Mutilator, The Hitcher, Child’s Play, House, Rawhead Rex, and Society.
We were lucky enough to talk to some people at the Horrorthon about what they had seen so far and what they were excited to see the rest of the night, and at the end of the episode we have some of those short interviews for you guys.
