People often ask what media we hosts enjoy when we are not watching horror schlock for this show. Jake's all time favorite YouTube channel is https://www.youtube.com/c/YourDinosaursAreWrong Luckily, we get a chance to speak with host, Steven Bellettini, on this week's episode and discuss what dinosaur he thinks would be scariest. We also touch on t…
 
Hold onto your -- oh, wait -- this episode is about the entire CARNOSAUR franchise, not Jurassic Park. Silly me. Welcome to our second week of Julyssic Park and join Jake, Doug, and Ade for their various thoughts on Roger Corman’s Carnosaur. But we don’t stop there! We also discuss Carnosaur part 2, Carnosaur part 3, and the two “bastardizations” t…
 
This is perhaps one of the toughest movie reviews we have ever done: Jurassic Park, a legendary film that has been dissected frame by frame for nearly 30 years, since it came out in 1993. No pressure in reviewing arguably Steven Spielberg's best creature feature, right? No one could ever fathom a scenario wherein they could yell at the hosts throug…
 
Happy Pride Month, Week 4!!! This month has been an absolute blast; we’ve explored everything from a questionable Al Pacino, to Wendy Carlos’s brilliance, to the creator of Scream and Dawson’s Creek. For our final week of Pride Month, we are celebrating the life and creations of one James Whale. James Whale is the director of some of your favorite …
 
Happy Week 3 of Pride Month! Today’s episode features a celebration of the past and future works of Mr. Kevin Williamson!You know Williamson as the screenwriter for, oh, I dunno, this little film called SCREAM. He’s also known for writing Teaching Mrs. Tingle, I Know What You Did Last Summer, Scream 2 and 4 (currently working on Part 5), Cursed, Ha…
 
Happy Pride Month, goons. In this second outing (yes, pun intended) we are doing a career retrospective of Wendy Carlos. Carlos is an incredible innovator of electronic music, whose work was influential in their design, and the implementation of the instruments themselves. You may recall her work with Stanley Kubrick on A Clockwork Orange, adapted …
 
“It’s scrumdidilyumptious! It’s everybody’s non-pollutionary, anti-institutionary, pro-confectionery factory of fun!”What do chicken beheadings, child kidnappings, and a psycho in a tophat all have in common? That’s right, people, we are talking about Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory--the 1971 horrifying children’s classic tale of a chocolate …
 
Another thrilling installment of MAYbe It's Horror is upon us with the 2001 cinematic masterpiece, Freddy Got Fingered. The film stars Tom Green, who also directed and wrote the film, along with his friend, Derek Harvie. The film was nominated for a total of eight Razzie Awards, winning five: worst screenplay, worst actor, worst director, worst scr…
 
MAYbe it's a horror movie continues! This week, we are doing Toys, starring the late and great, Robin Williams. This inexcusably unsettling movie was a 10-year passion project by writer/ director, Barry Levinson (and then wife, Valerie Cutrin). It is inarguably polarizing, because while it was nominated for a Razzie for worst director, it also rece…
 
It’s the first week of May, so that kicks off our MAYbe Horror Month; and our first week begins with Ade’s pick, the titular JAWBREAKER. Yes, that’s right, Rose McGowan, Rebecca Gayheart, Julie Benz and Judy Greer’s cult-favorite, inadvertent murder tale that involves a piece of hard candy and a creepy as fuck Marilyn Manson.We have a special treat…
 
The end is nigh, even though you wish the end was nah. Sorry gang, this is our last episode of No April, Only Zuul (aside from our Patreon bonus). What did you think? Was this whole month worth it? Are you overloaded? Are you there, god? It's me Janosz. This episode is a barbarous melee of button mashing mayhem as we talk about literally every Ghos…
 
Since we are in our third week of No April, Only Zuul, it’s only fitting that we discuss and dissect all of the animated content that the Ghostbusters Universe has provided us. Adam and Doug go into the magic that is The Real Ghostbusters--the OG animated series--before segueing into Slimer and The Real Ghostbusters and all of the trivia in between…
 
This week, we review the unfairly maligned, Ghostbusters 2. The film came out five years after the firtst, churned out by Columbia Pictures, who was in dire need of a hit after firing their CEO, David Putnam. The production was chaotic. While this film did not have the drastic re-writes of the first, it also had a shooting schedule of approximately…
 
Here on Slashers, there is No April, Only Zuul. That’t right human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria! An ENTIRE MONTH of Ghostbusters content! This film was originally written by Dan Aykroyd. It was admittedly a bloated, overly expensive movie for someone with his pull in the industry at the time. Then came Harold Ramis to h…
 
To celebrate/ mourn the end of TroMarch, enjoy my interview with Mark Torgl, who played Melvin Ferd, in The Toxic Avenger. We talk about his career as an editor, along with some of his favorite projects, such as Stan Lee's Who Wants to be a Superhero?. We talk about filming The Toxic Avenger many moons ago, the process and the relationships he buil…
 
It’s here! The end of TroMarch is finally here! And what better way to send you Goons off with the last episode discussing Cannibal! The Musical? This one’s special, because not only is it a musical, but it’s Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s debut full-length feature film. Before South Park was conceived, this was the first love child, so-to-speak. It’…
 
Check out our latest contribution to TroMarch, the crossover event no one wanted, besides us and Damn, That's Scary! This week, we review Redneck Zombies from 1987, which was only distributed by Troma, not made by. Of course-- OF MOTHER FLIPPIN' COURSE, on the one episode where we got an interview with someone from the actual movie this month, our …
 
This week, we are continuing our TroMarch collaboration with Damn, That's Scary with probably the second most famous Troma film ever: Class of Nuke 'Em High! Written and directed by Richard W. Haines, Michael Herz, and good ol' Uncle Lloyd Kaufman (under that weird pseudonym Samuel Weil), the film takes us back to Tromaville, New Jersey. More speci…
 
It’s Week 2 of our Tro-March collaboration with Damn, That’s Scary! Podcast, and this week we’re featuring the Troma distributed (but not created) Rabid Grannies. Join all four Slasher goons as we discuss all the goey, gory fun of Grannies gorging on their ungrateful relatives (my alliteration skills are something to be envied). We talk about the s…
 
And the award for longest episode title in Slashers Podcast history goes to... Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead (2006) & Interview with Price James! As the title suggests, this episode is a hearty slaw of content, so let's get right down to it! This kicks off Tro-March! That's right, an entire month of Slashers dedicated to Troma. But wait, …
 
For this week's installment in Femme Fatale February, imagine this: you waddled into some video store and you need to pick a movie. You want to pick something empowering to womyn, because you aren't no scrub (also known as a "busta"). In this scenario, the alphabet is different and you see two options side by side, Teeth and Frankenhooker. Which do…
 
Join us for week two of Femme Fatale February where we discuss all the gooey, icky fun that is Return of the Living Dead Part III!... 3!... Three!? This episode hits just before Valentine’s Day, so it’s only fitting we touch on the romance, misogyny, and mayhem that is this Brian Yuzna classic. You may also remember Brian Yuzna from directing Socie…
 
In honor of Groundhog Day, enjoy Jake's new spinoff show with his wife, Ciara: I Got You, Babe: A Groundhog Day Podcast. Be sure to review and subscribe to that show for new episodes! Welcome to Punxsutawney! On this, our debut episode, we introduce you to your new favorite podcast about your favorite 27 year old movie: Groundhog Day. On this intro…
 
As some of you may have noticed, despite being called "Slashers," our show did not do a proper slasher film in its entire first year. Now, we do two in a single episode! In this grand finale to our "New Year, 'New' Movies" event, we pit Friday the 13th Part V A New Beginning against Part VII The New Blood. Doug argues that Part V, A New Beginning, …
 
New Year, "New" Movies! This week, we review Wes Craven's New Nightmare. That's right, the film wherein Freddy's father/ creator Wes Craven returned to the franchise. He had something of a falling out with New Line Cinema over licensing and their deviation from his vision with sequels, but Bob Shaye made amends, laying the foundation for what would…
 
If you want a rational, unbiased opinion on this film, mosey on over to one of the 500,000 other movie review podcasts begging you for downloads. This is not it. Be forewarned, this is Jake's third favorite film of all time, any genre. . . maybe even higher now that I type this out. . . oh, I guess now would be a good time to admit that I (Jake) ha…
 
Congratulations! If you are reading this stupid description and listening to this stupider podcast, you survived 2020-- or you're a very smart zombie. To celebrate the new year, the theme for January is New Year, New Movies! That's right, and entire month of movie reviews, but do not worry, they are not new in time, just in title. Every film this m…
 
Alright, metadata gods. Now is the time. Bring me all of the new listeners I have craved this year. To wrap up "Cystmas," we have interviews with two actors from the film Cyst. First up, we have Gene Jones, who has been in The Hateful Eight, No Country for Old Men, Sacrament, and both Red Dead Revolver and Redemption. We discuss his tremendous stag…
 
We have a bonus sized Cystmas/ Christmas special for you this week, goons! Jake interviews Eva Habermann, star of Lexx, Under ConTroll (Troll World), and of course-- CYST! We discuss her working relationship with George Hardy and how his cameo in Under ConTroll ended up being responsible for Cyst ever even being conceived. It is remarkable just how…
 
On the second week of Cystmas, my goon love gave to me... an in-ter-view with the pro-ducer! You like how I typed that out syllabically for the two people who read these episode descriptions? Because you... you're worth it. Travis is a true goon and supporter of our show and it is so righteous to be able to support his film, Cyst. Please stay tuned…
 
We are happy to announce this month on Slashers, we are hosting Cystmas! That is right, each week of December, we will feature an interview with a member of the cast and crew from Cyst (2020). You can find the trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bWZuxRssLUk and the Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/cystmovie/ This week we have write…
 
You know the meme. The one with the guy gesturing and the butterfly and whatever. You are clearly hip to the interwebs, otherwise you wouldn't have found our stupid show. On this episode, Adrienne discusses what is and what is NOT "torture porn," as established by David Edelstein. We discuss movies ranging from Hellraiser, to Terrifier, with Hostel…
 
On this week's episode, Doug discusses the film The Greasy Stranger and its eerie similarities with two films he directed: Gross House and Don't Touch That Dial (both available on Troma Now & B-Movie TV). Jake has the pleasure of sitting down with video game music maestros, Lame Genie. We talk everything from their favorite horror films, to pro wre…
 
This week, more than most, shows why being a Patreon patron and getting the perk of early access is so ideal. When we recorded, we were awaiting the election results, which are now old news. Enjoy our trepidation at the real life horrors of politics. Doug presents on the 1987 film, Slaughterhouse. The film was written and directed by, Rick Roessler…
 
This week's episode offers a broad spectrum, from gaming to short, gorey horror films. Doug presents on the video game, Dead by Daylight. Originally released 6/14/16, the game has exploded into a multi-platform juggernaut, offering goopy goodness from the Nintendo Twitch to the PS5, with PC in between. Doug talks about the gameplay, the game's styl…
 
Doug is back for another fun episode, where he talks about the film: Microwave Massacre. Jake does a deep dive on the Creepy Crawlers brand, which spans six decades and includes action figures, a TV show, and a long-rumored film adaptation. If you ever have feedback or recommendations on future episodes, please let us know at slasherspod@gmail.com.…
 
Somehow I roped Jordan, from The Cult Sounds, into hosting my show. He talks about the catastrophic, yet highly entertaining Halloween 3: Season of the Witch, while I talk about the band Calabrese and interview their drummer, Davey. Halloween 3 is often maligned for a lack of Michael Myers. To this I say... and? We both defend the film, both in its…
 
Liking the new format? Well we hope so. If not, please sign up to our Patreon and I will then take your input more seriously. This week's episode is on Pathology and All Hallow's E.P. Adrienne introduces us to the 2008 Milo Ventimiglia and Alyssa Milano film. She even deep dives into the content and the poem from the film. The film was directed by …
 
We have talked about doing these movies before Jimmy was even on the show. Even if you hate every actor, every line, every plot point, I think that a certain amount of respect is owed to the film making and ingenuity that went into each installment of this franchise. Simply point, Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell are some legitimate legends... even if …
 
We are all in with this new format, and hope you are too. Originally, we planned to test this out and workshop it a bit, but as some of you know, we had a serious issue with a memory card that somehow snapped in half inside an adapter (which was undamaged). As a result, we lost four episodes and in order to maintain our release schedule, we adapted…
 
Hey gang! We have a new format that we are very excited about. Basically, the show will be more show and tell, with each host bringing their own horror media selection to talk about. We figure this will eliminate simply repeating a movie beat by beat, and introduce you to more stuff like a sassy middle-aged lady's book club... but with blood! As I …
 
No amount of typing will save our downloads on this episode. No one will give a shit about this movie. Frankly, the people who made it didn't even care. Aside from a great poster, Blood Harvest does not have much going for it. Still, our buddy, Doug Waugh, joins us to review this thing. Directed by Bill Rebane, who also directed Monster a Go Go, Tw…
 
This week's episode is on a more obscure title this week, that has languished on many of your watch lists on Netflix for years. Written and directed by Ana Lily Amirpour, a very unique filmmaker. We detail her meetings wiht both Keanu Reeves and Jim Carey, which are wholly unlike any other we've ever heard of. The film stars Suki Waterhouse as the …
 
This episode features our pal, Jonny Disaster, from "Hidden Tracks" alumni Cry Havoc! Unsurprisingly, they are the Hidden Track on this episode, with their classic song, "Fuck You! Just Die," from their classic album, "...And Let Slip the Dogs of War." On this episode, we give a brief history of the band, The Misfits, in its many incarnations: from…
