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 __ATA.cmd.pu…
 
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…
 
Things are running late this week, so here’s a minisode where I babble incoherently about “An Account Of Some Strange Disturbances In Aungier Street!” https://ia601402.us.archive.org/12/items/del-toro-aungier-street/DelToro-AungierStreet.mp3By philgonzales
 
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
 
This week, Willow and I get angry at a story that really really should have thought harder about what it was trying to say. It’s “The Whimper of Whipped Dogs” by Harlan Ellison! https://ia601505.us.archive.org/28/items/del-toro-whimper-whipped-dogs/DelToro-WhimperWhippedDogs.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…
 
Let’s keep this story truckin’ along with “The Tale of Inspector Legrasse!” Readings this episode were provided by Andrew Troth. Find more of his work here or wherever you buy audiobooks! https://ia601505.us.archive.org/29/items/del-toro-co-c-2/DelToro-CoC2.mp3By philgonzales
 
It’s here! Willow and I finally kick off our “The Call of Cthulhu” coverage with “The Horror in Clay!” Readings this episode were provided by Andrew Troth. Find more of his work here or wherever you buy audiobooks! https://ia601506.us.archive.org/6/items/del-toro-co-c-1/DelToro-CoC1.mp3By philgonzales
 
This week, Willow and I talk about “There’s A Long, Long Trail A-Winding” by Russell Kirk. It’s really good. I mean, I can’t think of much else to say? Hear the original song! https://ia601506.us.archive.org/2/items/del-toro-long-long-trail/DelToro-LongLongTrail.mp3By philgonzales
 
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. But, Ollie and I talk anyway! We talk a lot! About “The Exorcist!” https://ia601508.us.archive.org/32/items/deltorotimeexorcist/DelToroTime-Exorcist.mp3…
 
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.…
 
This episode, Ollie and I take a look at not one, not two but THREE movies! Yes, it’s 1968’s “Spirits of the Dead” featuring short films by three very different filmmakers and one very dead writer. https://ia601509.us.archive.org/20/items/deltorospiritsofthedead/DelToro-SpiritsOfTheDead.mp3By philgonzales
 
Ollie and I watch a movie that is near and dear to my heart: Stanley Kubrick’s enigmatic masterpiece “2001: A Space Odyssey” from 1968. What will Ollie think of a very long movie in which very little actually happens? Let’s find out! https://ia801409.us.archive.org/34/items/deltoro2001/DelToro-2001.mp3…
 
“That was NO DREAM!” Ollie and I take a long long look at Roman Polanski’s 1968 horror masterpiece “Rosemary’s Baby!” Say what you will about Polanski (and WE DO) but… man, this is a good movie. Just so so good. But, does Ollie think so? https://ia601404.us.archive.org/33/items/deltorotimerosemarybaby/DelToroTime-RosemaryBaby.mp3…
 
Gettin’ kitty with it – meow meow meow meow m’meow meow meow. This episode, Ollie and I return to the world of Japan and yokai and revenge and sweaty butts with Kaneto Shindo’s 1968 masterpiece “Kuroneko!” Why does that cat only make one sound? What does a woman’s arm look like? Burps? The Force? All this and MORE! https://ia601400.us.archive.org/2…
 
Hey, it’s us, Ollie and Phil and we’re back with Mario! Mario BAVA, that is! But, there are no ghosts or zombies in this one, just groovy, swinging super-thieves! It’s 1968’s “Danger: Diabolik!” Yeah, baby! Yeah! https://ia601401.us.archive.org/0/items/deltorodangerdiabolik/DelToro-DangerDiabolik.mp3…
 
So, here’s a heck of a thing: this is a LOST EPISODE! Ollie and I recorded this thing a long time ago and then I NEVER RELEASED IT. But, I stumbled across it recently and was like DANG, so here it is! “Eyes Without A Face!” https://ia601404.us.archive.org/28/items/deltoroeyeswithoutfacebonus/DelToro-EyesWithoutFace-BONUS.mp3…
 
Welcome back to a JUST UNDER THE LINE Halloween spook-em-up! We’re diving back into the world of Toho’s Frankenstein series(?) or attempted series I guess with “The War of the Gargantuas!” A movie that isn’t actually called “The War of the Gargantuas” but is actually called “Frankenstein’s Monsters: Sanda vs. Gaira” or “Duel of the Gargantuas” or w…

In this episode, Ollie and I take a look at a once-forgotten, now-remembered Hammer Classic, “The Plague of the Zombies!” Is there a plague? No! Are there zombies? Hecks to the yes! Is it good? Oh, you betcha! https://ia601503.us.archive.org/19/items/deltoroplaguezombies/DelToro-PlagueZombies.mp3By philgonzales
 
Do you know what’s 2 Spoopy 4 Me? Dead kids! This week, Ollie and I look at the deadliest of dead kids in Mario Bava’s “Kill Baby, Kill” from 1966. Of course, you may know “Kill Baby, Kill” better as “Curse of the Dead” or “Curse of the Living Dead” or “Operation: Fear!” or “The Dead Eyes of Dr. . . . Dracula?” Seriously? What the heck, internation…
 
Oh boy, were Ollie and I ever looking forward to this one! Yes sir! So glad it . . . happened. This episode is all about Frankenstein(‘s Monster’s Heart Recipient) (not) conquering the World! It’s about a giant boy who kills dogs and a man crawling around on all fours. Enjoy. https://ia601403.us.archive.org/17/items/deltorofrankconqworld/DelToro-Fr…
 
These are the stories that inspired “Kwaidan” so you can hear them before the episode on “Kwaidan.” Make sense?

How do you make the possibility of total global nuclear annihilation seem funny? You just sit down and tell the truth. Stanley Kubrick mined a lot of comedy out of the absurdity of the Cold War in 1964’s “Dr. Strangelove, or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Bomb.” Do Ollie and I mine a lot of entertainment out of our discussion? Eh? htt…
 
This episode, Ollie and I are back in Kurosawa country with the multi-layered “High and Low.” We look at this seemingly innocuous kidnapping thriller and delve into what was happening in Japan that informed Kurosawa’s telling of the story. It’s quite a trip! https://ia601400.us.archive.org/29/items/DelToroHighAndLow/DelToro-HighAndLow.mp3…
 
This week, I take a look at the unusual – and unusually neglected – film “The Fallen Idol” by the team that brought us “The Third Man” just a year later. It’s intense, frustrating and a wonderful film. https://ia601503.us.archive.org/5/items/DelToroFallenIdol/DelToro-FallenIdol.mp3By philgonzales
 
Oh boy! G-g-g-ghosts are back! Or, are they? Ollie and I talk about ghosts that may not be ghosts in 1963’s “The Haunting” by acclaimed director Robert Wise. Well, actually, we don’t talk about it much because I’m sick and Ollie is . . . Ollie. You know what I mean. https://ia601509.us.archive.org/31/items/DelToroTheHaunting/DelToro-TheHaunting.mp3…
 
It’s rare that a movie comes along that I have absolutely no context for, but “The Leopard” from 1963 sure took me by surprise. A masterpiece by Italian director Luchino Visconti, “The Leopard” really took me and Ollie by surprise. It’s sumptuous, pensive, melancholy and very long. But not dull. Check it out! https://ia601408.us.archive.org/32/item…
 
You want creepy kids? We got creepy kids! Ollie and I watch 1961’s incredible “The Innocents” based on the Henry James novel and written, in part, by Truman Capote. It’s spooky, gothicy, ghosty and great! https://ia601406.us.archive.org/33/items/DelToroTheInnocents/DelToro-TheInnocents.mp3By philgonzales
