When the clipper ship Elizabeth Dane is purposefully run aground and her crew of Lepers murdered for their gold the descendants of these perpetrators will pay for their crimes 100 years later as the cozy coastal town of Antonio Bay celebrates its centennial.

Welcome back to The Horror 101 Show. On this 55th podcast we will be covering another new film by director Jeremy Saulnier.

Join us as we give the horror 101 treatment to Green Room.

Get ready for a Horror 101 show that is unlike any that have come before it. For the first time ever we spend more time shredding horror films than we do promoting them. With the recent death of Larry Drake we took the opportunity to spotlight three films he was involved in. The first is a made for TV horror film from 1981 called Dark Night of the Scarecrow. The second is one of the most ridiculous slasher films ever made, Dr. Giggles. And finally, we cover Sam Raimi’s Darkman. For the first time ever we give a movie a ZERO. Listen to how The World Famous Brian Stewart almost destroys Cash’s TV. He’s THAT annoyed. We’ll discuss the horror homages in Tarantino’s Hateful Eight and include music from John Carpenter’s upcoming album Lost Themes II. This is the episode that may offend some but is guaranteed to leave everyone in stitches. Its another 43 minutes of Horror 101 goodness you’re not going to want to miss.
In our opinion The Fly is a great achievement that rivals Carpenter’s The Thing for great 80s remake status. Its as tragic as it is terrifying. The Fly has amazing performances from Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis. An astounding classical score from Howard Shore and some of Chris Walas’ most horrifying special effects ever filmed. Join us as we dissect the film and its production in this retrospective show and give the Horror 101 treatment to Cronenberg’s The Fly.
And for this 50th episode the Horror 101 team is going to spotlight a television show that has, to this day inspired many genre authors. In late 1959 writer/producer Rod Serling gave us his imaginative half hour show called the Twilight Zone. This show would delve into a litany of social commentary and wonders that the 50s TV viewer had never seen before. Sometimes they were frightening, sometimes heart warming but always fantastic and bizarre. We will focus on some of the more terrifying episodes and what they meant to us. Its a special 35 minute podcast that will bring you to another dimension of sight, sound and mind. Join us as we open the gates to The Twilight Zone.
