Rank #1: Horror Explorer Flashback #2: Cry Like a Butthole (Terrorvision, 1986)

Podcast cover
Read more
This episode of the Horror Explorer Flashback revisits an uncommonly good offering from producer Charles Band, 1986's "Terrorvision". A gluttonous monster from another planet is beamed away for disposal only to end up arriving in the television set of an outrageous mid 80s family of archetypes, setting off a scathing indictment of 1980s society and culture as well as commentary on the impact the availability of a wider range of TV entertainment had on the American family.

Rank #2: Horror Explorer Flashback #1: Sas-Crotch (Night of the Demon, 1980)

Podcast cover
Read more
The first episode of our new "Flashback" podcast, in which Mike hands the keys to the podcast off to his younger and newer co-hosts so they can check out some of the movies we covered long ago in our old format.
...and there's no better way to start this off than with 1980's extra-obscure "Night of the Demon". This movie revolves around a wildly irresponsible college professor's suicidal field trip with his students into the killing spree of a rapist bigfoot.

Rank #4: #52: Say NO To Hugs (The Children, 1980)

Podcast cover
Read more
Mike, Alicia, and Dave are just completely and utterly rekt by a 1-star iTunes review of the podcast from some mysterious person who claims to have listened to FIVE 1-hour episodes of a podcast they really hate. Dave has to be airlifted to the burn unit after experiencing multiple SICK burns at the hands of the world's most astute and witty podcast reviewer who is also chameleon-like in his ability to conceal his identity. After everyone recovers from being criticized by someone whose name resembles an Xbox gamertag, we move on to discussing this week's movie: "The Children"(1980), a movie in which a small New England town's children have gone missing after driving through a radioactive cloud from a nuclear power plant, only to return as freakishly grinning zombies with black fingernails that can cook people just by hugging them.

Rank #5: #51: Counterfeit Holocaust (Cannibal Ferox, 1981)

Podcast cover

This week Mike has the gang take a bite out of "Cannibal Ferox", Umberto Lenzi's 1981 attempt to replicate the infamous Italian cannibal movie "Cannibal Holocaust", and gets some surprising reactions. If you check out the movie because of this episode (and we hope you do) please be aware that there is a lot of animal cruelty in it.

Rank #6: #48: Children make terrible neighbors (Troll, 1986)

Podcast cover
Read more
This week Critical Dave gets something to sink his teeth into when Mike makes the gang watch the 1986 movie "Troll", perhaps best know for being the movie before "Troll 2". A new family moves into an apartment building and brings along the worst nuisance imaginable - children. The youngest daughter almost immediately unleashes an ancient evil that possesses her body and begins going door to door in the building, turning the residents into other trolls and their apartments into habitats. As the music tests our patience, the little girl's brother and the conveniently located "good witch" next door try to stop the troll before it's too late.

Rank #7: Horror Explorer Flashback #6: Killer Klowns From Outer Space (1988)

Podcast cover
Read more
Long ago Dave, Erik, Nat, and Aly recorded an episode revisiting Killer Klowns From Outer Space. Plagued with technical and audio issues, this episode remained in the can for months because the hours of repair required to make it publishable was just more work than I wanted to do. Thankfully, occasional co-host Tim decided to take a swing at editing it... and a couple of months later, I decided to finish it up and publish it. There are still a couple of issues with the editing, but we did our best to have something to put out for everyone until we come back this summer.

This week Dave, Liam, Erik, and Shaun look back on 1984's "Night of the Comet", a tale of two sisters trying to get laid (and survive) in the aftermath of a comet-spawned apocalypse that has left the world almost completely wiped clean of human life. They also spend a surprising amount of time discovering and discussing the career and achievements of Tami Holbrook.

This week Dave is living out his podcasting fantasies as he gets to discuss the feminist slasher parody "The Slumber Party Massacre" again, but this time with 3 young women as Lauren, Aly, and Nat join him to talk about things like male gaze, voyeurism in horror, impotence, and phallic symbols. I'm sure he'll mention Carol Clover at least once.

Rank #10: #46: [NIBBLING INTENSIFIES] (Piranha, 1978)

Podcast cover
Read more
We're back! The Horror Explorer Podcast has returned with a new and improved shorter and more focused format! VHS-era horror aficionado Mike chooses and older or obscure horror movie for his younger co-hosts to watch that most younger people have never seen, or maybe even heard of, and has them review it in a lively discussion of everything from cinematography or special effects to double penetration and butt-chugging. Go ahead and google it!

This week, Mike makes our eager youths (Alicia, David and Jordan) watch the original 1978 Roger Corman classic "Piranha" directed by Joe Dante. Given the wide variety of quality in Corman movies, this could go either way! Is it just a JAWS ripoff? How does it compare to the 21st century remake? Was alcoholism just not that big of a deal in 1978? Press play to find out!
