Ep.7: Rise Of The Rotting Reviews!

It's Alive! Horror Podcast

Tonight, we crawl back into the writhing weathered womb of the weird to deliver our thoughts on some of the current hottest horror flicks. We take a trip to the “Upside Down” when we discuss Stranger Things. Then we head to the lab and pull up a slab to explain 2015’s misunderstood Victor Frankenstein. Follow us into the woods as we get lost with The Blair Witch and end up playing 31 with some captured carnies. If all that wasn’t enough we also talk the Halloween season, listener mail, and much more. It may not be Halloween yet, but tonight’s the night we come home.

Blair Witch Movie Review

So my doctor told me I have high blood pressure. I guess it’s unusual for someone my age to have it. Stress related or something. I’m all good, though. That is until I saw the official Blair Witch sequel.

I tried standing up when the lights turned on. I guess I was rigid with fear because my knees almost gave out on me! I was totally exhausted. The Blair Witch totally kicked my ass.

I was expecting a good movie that milked the source. What we got instead was a Force Awakens type of experience. The original served as the foundation and the rest was completely building up more of the mythology. On top of that the filmmaking behind this gem was absolutely on point. 

Director Adam Wingard utilized some fresh found footage techniques. Everything from drone footage to mini cameras. Beautiful work. The thing that I loved was the reason for having the footage displayed in such away makes complete sense. 

The icing on the cake was the pure and utter terrifying suspense that was carefully dropped on us. It all blended so damn well I nearly died. Thank God I didn’t get a heartattack because I would have missed the the insane ending!
Blair Witch is undoubtedly going to become a huge franchise that will dominate the box office. I’m on board with what Lionsgate and company have up their sleeve. The Blair Witch is only the beginning of the nightmare! I can see this going to so many different places. Not just in story but in marketing as well. Just gimme it all!

Its Alive Horror Podcast: Ep.6!

Our latest episode dropped yesterday. Podcasting was something we always wanted to do. So when we record each episode we do so in total awe. The awe factor is slowly going away. In its wake we are becoming more human. We are stripping our cautious hides and running naked through the horror Podcasting realm. It is a glorious feeling.

Our mission is to delve in all the feels we have for horror. It’s not just movies that drive us. It’s the atmosphere that horror, Halloween, and all things spooky creates. We desire to be one loud radio advertising all things horror all the damn time. We simply needed an outlet in which Chris and I could talk about Boo Berry and Universal Monsters in a public arena. It’s Alive Horror Podcast is that arena.

Amen.

Rob Zombies 31 

I just saw Rob Zombies 31. I’ll cut the shit to the bone: it was awesome!!! This is a mix of the most Dangerous Game infused with the brilliance of Mr. Rob Zombie. Rob Zombie makes Rob Zombie movies. 

31 is the return of brute horror. Zombie said he relishes the sleazy films of the 70’s. He loves it so much that he pays homage to the brand in all his films. He is the curator of the rotting wound that hides under the scab of modern horror. 

In 31 he gives us a simple story. Carnies get kidnapped by a sadistic cult. They must survive the night. Boom. Done. It needs nothing more. Think about all the classic 70’s horror films. They are ultra simplistic in plot. It works.

What makes this film extra special is the simply awesome and deranged characters called Heads. The Top Gun is Doom-Head. This guy is one of my favorite RZ characters now! He’s filled with Twisted morals and poetic gutter dialogue. You love to hate him.

Everybody did a fantastic job in this movie. The soundtrack was awesome, the 70s score was fantastic, the editing was top knotch, the direction is perfect and the acting was great.
After a decade of Supernatural films it’s always nice to get a Rob Zombie experience. I implore everybody to witness this horror show. Remember that horror can only survive if you pay up when good horror is released.
