Let’s finish up “Nightmare Alley” in a GOOD MOOD shall we? We talk about Stanton’s rise and fall; doing evil vs. being evil; and whether or not Willow could make money in a side show.

This week, Willow and I begin our look at William Lindsay Gresham’s “Nightmare Alley!” We’re looking at the first eleven “cards” in the book and talking about just how screwed up this whole thing is. https://ia601409.us.archive.org/0/items/del-toro-nightmare-alley-01/DelToro-NightmareAlley01.mp3 Music: Walking Along by Kevin MacLeod https://incompe…
 
It’s an It’s Del Toro Time first: a guest! And not just any guest, but writer, editor and all-around genre film expert Ian Nathan. Ian joins us to discuss the man himself (Guillermo del Toro) as well as his new book “Guillermo del Toro: The Iconic Filmmaker and His Work.” Listeners, we had a great time talking with him. If you would like to order I…
 
It’s so much fun to discover a new favorite horror movie and Willow and I did that very thing with Gary Sherman’s 1981 film “Dead and Buried.” It’s such a great time, the performances are outstanding, the behind the scenes stuff is fun and heartbreaking and the effects work BLEW MY MIND. Check it out! https://ia601401.us.archive.org/4/items/del-tor…
 
In this special “Host’s Request” episode, we’re covering “Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?” an early horror story by Joyce Carol Oates. Because Willow wanted to and I respect that! If you want to read the story yourself, it’s available for free at Celestial Timepiece along with essays and commentary! https://ia601507.us.archive.org/9/items…
 
Well, look who’s back! It’s Phil and Willow and we’re talking about 1980’s “The Shining!” It’s a Kubrick film about a man and a hotel and… you know what? You know what “The Shining” is, okay? There’s no way you don’t know what “The Shining” is. Let’s talk about cluster flies instead. https://ia601409.us.archive.org/22/items/del-toro-the-shining/Del…
 
What IS this movie?! It’s William Peter Blatty’s directorial debut “The Ninth Configuration” and it’s a DOOZY. Did we enjoy it? Ehhhhhhhh. Did it make an impact? It sure did! Do we recommend it?

When is the scariest movie of all time NOT the scariest movie of all time? When it’s the still VERY GOOD “The Changeling” from 1980! This week, Willow and I talk about Cheesman Park, boys in wells and, most importantly, CONES! GHOST CONES! It’s all about the CONES, baby! https://ia601501.us.archive.org/27/items/del-toro-the-changeling/DelToro-TheCh…
 
When is a movie sequel NOT a movie sequel? When it’s “Zombi 2!” Lucio Fulci begins his career of gross-out horror with this nutso take on the zombie genre. Call it a gross out; call it demented; just don’t call it a sequel to “Dawn of the Dead.” It’s Zombie! Or, Zombi 2! https://ia601504.us.archive.org/25/items/del-toro-zombie/DelToro-Zombie.mp3…
 
Let’s get weird! It’s returning champ Dario Argento’s 1977 masterpiece “Suspiria” starring returning champs Jessica Harper, Rudolf Schündler, Alida Valli, Jacopo Mariani, and Fulvio Mingozzi! Trust me, we’ve seen ’em. “Suspiria!” https://ia601406.us.archive.org/17/items/del-toro-suspiria/DelToro-Suspiria.mp3…
 
It’s a Twittersode! Willow can’t be here, so I’m talking real quick-like about “The Living Dead At Manchester Morgue!” Or “Let Sleeping Corpses Lie!” Or “Breakfast At Manchester Morgue?” Or “Don’t Open The… Window?” Really? Huh. https://ia601405.us.archive.org/4/items/del-toro-living-dead-at-manchester-morgue/DelToro--LivingDeadAtManchesterMorgue.m…
 
We’re back to Spain with “Cria Cuervos” the final(?) movie in our “Let’s explore the trauma of Fascism through the eyes of a child” series. Willow and I talk about death, guinea pigs, death, Franco, death and death and still have some time left over to contemplate the nature of death. But, honestly, this whole thing is about “Porque Te Vas.” It’s a…
 
It’s Giallo Time! This episode, Willow and Phil talk about Dario Argento’s classic “Profondo Rosso” or “Deep Red” or “The Hatchet Murders(?)!” And remember, hot water can scald in wess dan twee seconds! gVPkepA0iu5OXJiUk1E0 https://ia601507.us.archive.org/27/items/del-toro-profondo-rosso/DelToro-ProfondoRosso.mp3…
 
Hoo boy. Willow and I are back with a doozy. It’s the very famous “Yours Truly, Jack the Ripper” by the very famous Robert Bloch and it’s… not great? It’s not very good, y’all! It’s actually pretty bad! But, we do get to talk about Jack the Ripper a lot! Like, a lot a lot. https://ia601507.us.archive.org/26/items/del-toro-jack-ripper/DelToro-JackRi…
 
This week, Willow and Phil are barely keeping it together, but they talk about Robert Aickman’s weird weird story “Larger Than Oneself!” Let’s all merge into a glowing ball of light, okay? Anything is better than whatever’s going on here. https://ia601507.us.archive.org/9/items/del-toro-larger-than-oneself/DelToro-LargerThanOneself.mp3…
 
This week, Willow and I get all up in the sticks! Karl Edward Wagner’s “Sticks” that is! These sticks and stone won’t break your bones, but they will get your head caved in by a frying pan! Enjoy! https://ia801401.us.archive.org/32/items/del-toro-sticks/DelToro-Sticks.mp3By philgonzales
 
BOO! Don’t worry, I’m not a ghost. Or, am I? This week, Willow and I are talkin’ ghosts with Edith Nesbit’s “John Charrington’s Wedding!” It’s short, but spooky! https://ia601500.us.archive.org/31/items/del-toro-john-charringtons-wedding/DelToro-JohnCharringtonsWedding.mp3By philgonzales
 
This week, Willow and I touch on a work by the master of speculative fiction: “The Crowd” by Ray Bradbury! And, by “touch on” I mean “kinda talk about a little.” Mostly, we discuss “Screwballs 2: Loose Screws!” Or, I discuss it and Willow sighs a lot. https://ia601500.us.archive.org/26/items/del-toro-the-crowd/DelToro-TheCrowd.mp3…

Let’s get literary! This week, we’re taking a look at Nathaniel Hawthorne’s “Young Goodman Brown.” Is it horror? Is it really even a story? Your guess is as good as ours! https://ia601509.us.archive.org/9/items/del-toro-old-badman-blue/DelToro-Old%20badman%20blue.mp3By philgonzales

Wouldn’t it be chilly with no skin on? That is a question about a scary skeleton song! But, this story is not about scary skeletons, but scary rich people who overstay their welcome in a small town! It’s “The Summer People” by Shirley Jackson! https://ia601509.us.archive.org/12/items/to-be-a-skeleton-in-the-graveyard-carving-a-phrase-into-his-desce…
 
From “The Lovecraft Anthology, Volume One” art by D’Israeli Willow and I are here to close out “The Call of Cthulhu” with “The Madness From the Sea!” It’s got everything: ships, drips, and drops. We talk and YOU LISTEN! Also, the incredible Andrew Troth closes out the story for us. Order Andrew Troth’s book narrations here or wherever you buy audio…

This week, Willow and I take a look at Lucy Clifford’s “The New Mother.” It’s a creepy little fairy tale that, weirdly enough, is not altogether complete in “The Dark Descent!” That’s right! We have a truncated story! If you’re looking for the complete version, check out “The Anyhow Stories, Moral and Otherwise” online. It’s frustrating! This week’…
 
This episode, Ollie and I take a look at one of favorite films of all time and a movie that Ollie culd hardly stand to watch and THEY’RE ARE THE SAME MOVIE. It’s 1974’s “Phantom of the Paradise!” There’s monsters, music and madness and it’s just great. Just super great. https://ia601503.us.archive.org/27/items/deltorophantomparadise/DelToro-Phantom…
 
Come along for a very special episode where Ollie and I watch Richard Lester’s “The Three Musketeers” and then immediately follow it up with Richard Lester’s “The Four Musketeers!” That’s SEVEN Musketeers! https://ia601404.us.archive.org/9/items/deltoro34musketeers/DelToro-3-4-Musketeers.mp3By philgonzales
 
So much has been written about William Friedkin’s adaptation of William Peter Blatty’s bestselling novel “The Exorcist” that it’s hard to find anything new to say about it.

In this episode, Ollie and I crash headfirst into the Seventies with a movie that explores masculinity, the sexual revolution, man’s inhumanity towards man, and BIG BIG TRUCK. It’s Steven Spielberg’s “Duel” from 1971! Also, SHUMP! https://ia601402.us.archive.org/9/items/deltoroduel/DelToro-Duel.mp3By philgonzales
 
Who Can Kill A Child? We all can! This week, Ollie and I look at “La Residencia” or “The Boarding School” or “The Finishing School” or “THE HOUSE THAT SCREAMED!” It’s a good ol’ Spanish horror film starring a German actress, filmed in English and set in France. EUROPE! That’s how it works. But, does the movie work? Let’s find out! https://ia801508.…
