Horror 101 – Episode 93: Body Bags (1993)

November 30, 2019

Zip yourself in tight!

Welcome back to the Horror 101 show. Something a little different this podcast. Its not exactly a hidden gem but we don’t see this film being talked about in the community too often. If we were to tell you there was an anthology horror film from the 90s, hosted by John Carpenter as this ghoul in a morgue, cracking eye rolling jokes and ushering you into tales which feature Tobe Hooper, Wes Craven, David Naughton, Sam Raimi, Stacy Keach, Mark Hamill, Blondie, Sheena Easton, and David Warner. And thats maybe HALF of the faces you’d recognise in the film. Would you believe me? Cause that shit exists, Ladies and Gentlemen. For this 93rd episode we’re gonna dig up these tales of terror from 1993. Join us as we give the Horror 101 treatment to Body Bags!
