Zac Amico told me some amazing stories about producing low budget horror movies. Zac is a hilarious comic and podcaster and he's also a producer of films for Troma, one of the greatest pulp horror makers of all time. We talked about the history of this kind of campy, low budget horror. Why they always seem to have ditzy bimbos. Where the ridiculous titles come from. All of it. Plus I did the intro from an abandoned cemetery for maximum effect.

Watch Zac's horror podcast, Zac Amico's Midnight Spookshow,. catch him hosting Catalyst Wrestling or follow him on instagram at @ZacIsNotFunny. I'd tell you to go watch his movie that he made, Shakespeare's Shitstorm, but the last screening happened on Friday so unless it becomes a cult classic, you're gonna have trouble watching it. But I heard it was really good.
