Chris and I have always feared that a great dark age would befall our podcast, It’s Alive! Horror Podcast. Well that shit happened. Why did it happen you ask? Well, I had a baby, I moved twice, and when we started to settle down and gear up the plague was dropped on THE ENTIRE PLANET – And I got it. So that sucked.
David Pumkins once said, “To each leaf comes hours of yardwork.” I have no fucking idea what that meant but my take is that life is a bitch sometimes. So we deal with it. And Chris and I dealt with it by constantly talking up ideas for new episodes. It was only a matter of time before we would record something #fresh.
Last week we baked a nice hot n’ fresh episode just in time for our favorite holiday, Columbus Day. Comedy!
So here we are. Almost two years into the void and Chris and I finally smashed through with a delicious ( I dislike this word when used this way) episode for October. It’s a fresh start and a fresh angle. The nugget of it all is getting back to being the creative people we are. Our goal is not to pander to the horror fan. Our goal is to pander to ourselves. Because we can.
So prepare yourselves for our honest opinion on Halloween 18 and the upcoming Halloween Kills. We also sprinkled in our favorite Halloween sequel AND deliver our very own Halloween movie pitches.
We hope you have a blast listening to the upcoming episode. We truly do. Thank you for staying with us.
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.
Ep.6: Days Of Halloween Past | It’s Alive! A Horror Podcast
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.
The podcast that I co -host just dropped episode number 5. This week on It’s Alive horror podcast we discuss our awesome experience at Chicago’s flashback weekend horror convention. Oyr microphones were live during the Q&A panel of Phantasm and the exclusive Rob Zombie 31 panel( that went hilariously off track thanks to Legendary actor Malcolm McDowell! )
This project is definitely a passion project for the both of us. It’s our way to share our thoughts, feelings, and experiences with the horror world. W are simply two laid-back fans that love everything to do with spooks!
Our next episode we will be carving up some awesome nostalgic Halloween memories! Tis the season. Always.
