Happy Halloween 2016! You've heard it right, folks - Ted and Tony are pleased to bring you a BRAND-NEW episode of the Horror Etc Podcast, just in time for our favourite time of year... It's ghouls and ghosties, vampires and nasties - a generous helping as we catch-up on what we've been up to over the past year, and what we've missed chatting about along the way. This is old-school Horror Etc, and we're pleased to be back on the couch - many thanks to all who have kept the beast alive.

EPISODE 376 - Why So Moreau?15/09/2015
"The Island of Dr. Moreau" has all the appeal of a modern day sci-fi horror story, complete with genetic manipulation and societal undertones... and yet it has been adapted for the Hollywood screen (officially) only 3 times: 1932, 1977, and the notorious all-star 1996 train wreck starring Marlon Brando and Val Kilmer (itself the focus of a new documentary Lost Souls). Join Tony and Doug as they examine the history of Moreau on screen (including the aforementioned doc) - a classic story finally getting its due on the Horror Etc Podcast!

EPISODE 375 - Summer of Horror '1520/08/2015
Welcome all to our Summer of Horror spectacular! In truth, we really just took the opportunity to talk at length about the terrific It Follows from promising new director David Robert Mitchell. A visual feast that harkens to material we have praised in the past including Stoker, Drag Me To Hell, The Guest, Only God Forgives and more - the positive comments are somewhat backed up by a surface analysis that demonstrates the amount of audience investment this film calls for. There are 2 separate spoiler segments for It Follows (split by a state of the industry address from Anthony): 25:19 - 30:05 - spoiler discussion part 1 33:34 - 45:22 - spoiler discussion part 2 Why is this a 'summer of horror' episode? Simply to offer a chance to talk about a few other horror offerings in the recent months including the Poltergeist remake, The Gallows, Irrational Man, Mad Max, etc. Finally, we return to schlock corner to check out the Suspiria read-along book, an American Guinea Pig film and more. Thanks again f
EPISODE 374 - Christopher Lee (in memorium)03/08/2015
Last month we lost the elder statesman of horror films following a prolific career as an actor, singer, and all-around renaissance man, but the screen legend's personal life before his ascent to celluloid icon may perhaps be the most fascinating of all chapters of his life. Please join us in a brief celebration of the life and legacy of a great figure of classic horror. It's been a lengthy hiatus so we appreciate all of you who have remained subscribed to the podcast and all of the kind words sent our way. More to come very soon!

EPISODE 373 - What We Missed Along The Way21/03/2015
....and we're back. After doing the show as long as we have, there were bound to be occasions where we called foul and made negative opinions known. This week Tony and Ted took the opportunity to challenge each other to several re-watches to give our original thoughts another evaluation... and the results were surprising. Beginning with the Nightmare on Elm Street remake through Rob Zombie's Halloween to The Day the Earth Stood Still, and everything in-between, we took a deep breath and kept an open mind. The highlight challenges for your hosts were the Lord of the Rings / The Hobbit saga for Anthony and infamously The Happening for Ted. We hope you enjoy this unusual retrospective as much as we enjoyed recording it. Schlock corner offers another visit with friend of the show William Shatner and his latest demonstration that he does not suffer fools easily. Finally, we do a little catching up in our final segment before offering up a small tribute to Leonard Nimoy. Thanks for downloading and listening
EPISODE 372 - Barbara Steele: The Dame of Gothic Horror03/02/2015
With her mysterious smoky eyes, aquiline features and distinct diction, Barbara Steele was the reigning first woman of gothic horror cinema throughout the 1960s. From her first outing on the subject - Mario Bava's definitive Black Sunday - to her most recent headlining triumph in The Butterfly Room, Barbara Steele brings a timeless (and sinister) combination of beauty, elegance and intelligence to her portrayals of witches, vixens, demented murderesses and damsels in distress... Barry Yuen joins Tony for this retrospective of true genre legend.
EPISODE 371 - From The Hip (Angel of Death edition)13/01/2015
This week we ring in 2015 with a catch up from the holidays, including an update on Anthony's various projects, and share some of the various genre related things we've been checking out. The main event though is a lengthy discourse on (new) Hammer's sequel The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death. It is a January release in every sense but we tried to offer up a few positives to the return of Eel Marsh House - nevertheless, anger and frustration led to us giving our honest opinions (Ted draws a line on jump scares). A few more odds and ends round things out including a brief rundown on Predestination and some teases for upcoming show topics. Short and to the point this episode - please stay tuned for some terrific subjects lined up in the weeks ahead.
