Murray Abraham, Shannon Elizabeth and Matthew Lillard.
Welcome back to the Horror 101 show. This will be our 60th podcast, coming at you just in time for your holidays. To help us celebrate this 60th milestone we’re continuing the podcast with more classic Vincent Price horror and focusing on Roger Coreman’s Fall of the House of Usher from 1960. Based on the timelessly macabre short story by Edgar Allan Poe. This film is a king in the Gothic Horror enterprise with stunning atmosphere, rich sets and fantastic wardrobe. This was the first of many Poe adaptations featuring Price from American International Pictures. We’ll make some comparisons between the film and the original story and talk about Poe himself. Sit back, enjoy some eggnog and let Horror 101 bring some classic darkness to your holidays.
For our 59th episode we go back to visit the wacky gimmick horror that was William Castle’s 1959 spooker House on Haunted Hill starring Vincent Price.

We also give our brutally honest review of Phantasm V: Ravager and why it was so disappointing to us.
Welcome back to the Horror 101 podcast! Another Halloween is upon us! This year we’re featuring a television special which was broadcast by the BBC1 back on October 31st, 1992. Not since Orson Welles’ War of the Worlds radio broadcast in the 30s has a live show ever caused so much uncertainty and panic. Way before mass communication like the internet was available as a social crutch to validate the facts, this show took an unprecedented approach at reality TV as real journalists were used in a mockumentary which investigated paranormal activity. All the stops were pulled to invent a realistic and frightening scenario which many viewers believed was really happening. Its quite possibly the most effective and terrifying hoax ever released on television and has been the influence for several reality TV productions that followed. And for these reasons the Horror 101 team is spotlighting BBC’s Ghostwatch starring Michael Parkinson and Sarah Greene. We take some time to remember The Godfather of Gore, Herschell Gordon Lewis who passed away the day we recorded. Join us for this year’s Horror 101 Halloween Special!
Welcome back to the Horror 101 Podcast. Come with us as we voyage to a cursed place. After hitting the John Carpenter show in Michigan, Cash learns his colleagues have never seen Carpenter’s The Fog from 1980. The sacrilege!

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. Its sweet ghostly revenge. We’ll cover our experience at The Carpenter show and our love affair with the 80s inspired Netflix series Stranger Things. Join us as we give the Horror 101 treatment to another Carpenter Classic!
Welcome back to The Horror 101 Show. On this 55th podcast we will be covering another new film by director Jeremy Saulnier. Its Sir Patrick Stewart in his first horror movie since Tobe Hooper’s Lifeforce. We couldn’t believe Saulnier got him to play a racist homicidal Nazi Skinhead. And he kills the performance. This will be one of the last films we get from the recently deceased Anton Yelchin. This is a movie about survival in its most brutal form. We loved it. Join us as we give the horror 101 treatment to Green Room.
We’ll discuss our first flame mail that we received after our last show. It took 5 years before a listener took the time to shit on us. Listen to what pissed them off so much.
