Horror 101 – Episode 121: Altered States (1980)

In the basement of a university medical school Dr . Jessup floats naked in total darkness. The most terrifying experiment in the history of science is out of control… and the subject is himself.

Welcome to our 121st show! The Cult Sensation has pulled his request card! We recently lost another excellent actor and this loss was enough for Nick to want to pay tribute to the first film this gentleman starred in. A fairly obscure little gem that fits perfectly in our catalog. If science runs amok stories are your bag? I think you’re in for a good time.

Horror 101 – Episode 119: Wes Craven’s New Nightmare

This time, staying awake won’t save you.

Ten years after the first A Nightmare On Elm Street, writer/director Wes Craven returned to his legacy and gave us a fresh tale where the horror of the Nightmare films seep into the real world and menace the cast and crew of the original film. This film works on a lot of different levels. A few missteps were made. Join us as we give the Horror 101 treat to the late Craven’s New Nightmare!

Horror 101 – Episode 114: The Exorcist

Somewhere between science and superstition, there is another world. The world of darkness.

Nood’s birthday is coming up at the beginning of October so for part of her birthday the crew has agreed to focus on her favourite horror film. This film has been relentlessly studied and analyzed for nearly 50 years. It was a commercial success at its 1973 debut and even now remains one of the most controversial films ever released. Many people were unprepared for the brutal and raw depiction of blasphemy and evil that this film contained. It was a game changer and we hope you’ll enjoy as we celebrate the immortal power of William Friedkin’s The Exorcist.

Horror 101 – Episode 112: Dog Soldiers

Six soldiers. Full moon. No chance.

On our 112th show I am filling a long time request from three very determined individuals to get Horror 101 to cover Neil Marshall’s Dog Soldiers from 2002. A six man military squad are setup as bait for a pack of werewolves and must hold out till morning in a secluded farm house in the Scottish Isles. Six soldiers. Full moon. With absolutely no chance. This is basically Aliens, Predator and Night of the Living Dead thrown into a blender with werewolves. I now have a new appreciation for this film after putting this show together. With special guest Brian ‘Horky’ Horvath. Join us for one of the most vivacious podcasts we’ve ever released.
