Ep. 256: There’s a Wraith in the Vestibule

November 30, 2017

Hello, Mary Lou! The gang watched Prom Night 2 this week, which despite not at all being a sequel to Prom Night is good bonkers fun. Mayhem is also an adrenaline-fueled, goofy good time. Sadly, the true curse in Noroi is sitting through a two hour found footage movie for 45 minutes of plot. At least our short, Monsters in the Dark 2, is another stone cold classic from Luke Mordue.


Next week: Each one pick one! We had considered running the Wishmaster series this week, but that's a little too masochistic for the holiday season. So,

Matt's Pick: Witchery (Shudder)

Charlie's Pick: The Devil's Rain (Amazon Prime)

Josh's Pick: The Exorcism of Emily Rose (Amazon)

Our short is Holiday Fear. Watch along and we'll chat atcha next week! 


HSHD Special Edition: No End House

November 22, 2017

Hey hot doggies,

Holiday travels kept us from getting together to discuss our assigned films this week. But Matt and Megan are standing boldly in the gap with their (spoilery) review of the latest series of Channel Zero: No-End House!

Next week we'll still discuss:

Noroi: The Curse

Prom Night 2


Our short is Monsters in the Dark 2 from the most excellent Luke Mordue. Maybe watch Monsters in the Dark first.


Ep. 255: Remove the Invisible Trilby

November 14, 2017

This week, we delve into Charlie's personal horror movie to stash for some weird, delightful, hard-to-find stuff. Tesis is a harrowing thriller, Terror Tract is a delightful anthology, and The Outing is a bug-nutty thing with a genie, maybe? We had a blast with these movies and just as much fun talking about them.

Next week! Things we have talked about but not seen! We're watching:

Noroi: The Curse

Prom Night 2


Our short is Monsters in the Dark 2 from the most excellent Luke Mordue. Maybe watch Monsters in the Dark first.


Ep. 254: The Windex of Monster Venom

November 8, 2017

It's a podcast switcheroo this week, as we take over duties on Slaughterhouse Princess and Chris, Brett & Troy do their best to fill our shoes. They review Creep, Creepy, and Creepazoids, and gain a new respect for podcasts who do three films a week instead of one.

Meanwhile, we got to slack off this week and just review the Poltergeist remake. Ahhhh.

Next week: Back to the grind! It's Charlie Netflix week, and we're going deep into the man's treasure trove of hard-to-find films:


The Outing

Terror Tract

Our short is Treaters. Watch along with us and we'll chat atcha next week!



Ep. 253: That’s Not a Knife, That’s a Metaphor

November 5, 2017

It's a found footage-y week this week, with Found Footage 3D and Grave Encounters fulfilling all your shaky-cam needs. Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer is less vertigo-inducing, but even more disturbing. And the miracle is we found any time to record, since we were finishing off Twin Cities Horror Festival!

Next week we're doing something a little different and super special: An ill-timed Halloween crossover with scissor-sister podcast Slaughterhouse Princess. We'll be doing one movie, 'cause that's all those slackers do every week, and that movie is the Poltergeist remake. We're making them do three movies, as all hard-working, upstanding podcasts should do.

So they'll post their new ep here, and ours will be over there. Clear as mud? Awesome!


HSHD Cocktail Weenie: Twin Cities Horror Fest with Matt Kessen

November 1, 2017

It's hot Matt-on-Matt action for this 7-minute interview. Matt Allex talks Twin Citie Horror Fest with the brilliant mind behind Reverend Matt's Monster Science, Matt Kessen.

Stay tuned for our next full episode later this week!


Ep. 252: The Big Adult Show

October 19, 2017

There's plenty to discuss-and gently disagree about-in this week's roundup of brand spankin' new flicks. McG's The Babysitter tickles Josh and Matt's funnybone, but hits Charlie right in the angrybone. Matt and Josh aren't super impressed with Super Dark Times, but Charlie loves it. At least we can all agree that Seoul Station is... an animated zombie movie.

Next week: Found Footage! We're watching:

Found Footage 3D (Shudder)

Grave Encounters (Amazon, Shudder)

Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer (Amazon Prime)

Our short is The Fisherman. Watch along with us and we'll chat at you soon!

Also! Twin Cities Horror Fest is NEXT FREAKIN' WEEK! Get your short film fest tickets now.


Ep. 251: The Ghostly Sudoku Hand

October 16, 2017

It's all late-franchise sequels this week, a masochistic exercise to be sure. But it coulda been worse. Rings is a retread of The Ring with a few good scares (and a great Vincent D'onofrio). Phantasm: Ravager is an incoherent, messy labor of love - what else do you expect from that franchise? And Cult of Chucky surprised at least a couple of us with the groove it found, bringing some new energy with less of the silliness of Bride and Seed.

Next week: More new stuff! We're watching:

Seoul Station (Shudder)

The Babysitter (Netflix)

Super Dark Times (Amazon)

Our short is Phantom. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon!


Ep. 250: The Wolf that Eats Like a Meal

October 5, 2017

It's a decade-spanning week of lowered expectations here at Horror Show Hot Dog. Gerald's Game is good -- but it's not the mind-blowing greatness we were expecting. The Wolfman is the shortest and least fleshed-out of the old Universal monster movies, but it's fun enough. Dead Awake is....pretty damn bad.

Next week: Late-Franchise Sequels, because we're masochists!

We're watching:

Cult of Chucky (Amazon)

Phantasm: Ravager (Shudder)

Rings (Redbox, Amazon)


Our short for next week is Black Goat. Watch along and we'll see you next time!


Oo, also, TWIN CITIES HORROR FESTIVAL! We're once again presenting five nights of horror short films, a different lineup each night. And there are 11 other amazing shows from far more talented people than we are. Get tickets now!


Ep. 249: Kabuki Hobos

September 28, 2017

It's a deeply mixed bag this week. One thing we can agree on: A Dark Song was a twisty, trippy, tense piece of work. Pet aspires to 70s level scuzziness, but ends up pretty dull, and It Comes at Night would have been better if, y'know, something actually came in the night.

Next week: Each one pick one! We're watching:

Gerald's Game (Josh's pick, Netflix)

The Wolfman (Matt's pick, Amazon)

Dead Awake (Charlie's pick, Netflix)


Our short is Zombie Musical, source material of the upcoming flick Anna and the Apocalypse. Watch along with us and we'll chat at you next week!
