Calling all Horror fans
If you love horror then you've come to the right place Gav and Dan chew the fat on all things horror. Really likeable guys with a great since of humour and fantastic knowledge on the genre. Good banter with great insight to some of the best horror movies out there. So sit back relax and let Gav and Dan take you ( or take them with you on the go ) into the deeper darker world of Horror fandom.
Good podcast. I want to love it. But...
I will start by saying that i wanted to love this Podcast.
Hearing some home grown voices talking about some of my favourite movies. Huzzah!
And at great length, too!
Dan is great. A real fan of the genre and it comes across.
But come on Gav!
I jumped in on the episode about Critters 2. I loved it for the most part. But listening to Gav constantly saying how Critters bored him, that didn't like it, that he had nothing to say about it soon grated. If you don't like the movie why do a ruddy podcast episode about it! Talk about something else! Or at least work along with Dan to get the most out of the episode. If you don't like it i would love to hear why, getting both sides of an argument makes for some of the best Podcast material. But, instead, Gav just comes across as a whiny tween.
He annoyed me so much that i almost walked away from the podcast. But i tried another episode.
The Monster Squad and Fly episode was great. Fans geeking out over great movies. Hell yeah! Its a brilliant episode.
But then.... the Grudge and Audition episode. Damn it all! Gav moans on about how he didn't think much of Grudge, didn't understand it, then saying he fell asleep 50 minutes in and wasn't even concentrating on the rest... Man alive! Why would you decide to do a Podcast about a movie then not even put in 2 hours of prep into watching the movie?!
Gav is the podcast equivalent of a moody teenager whining
"do i have to!" When asked to do anything he doesn't like.
Dan is ace, though, and the only reason to keep trying to listen to the podcast.
3 stars as it is worth trying. (Maybe my criticism of Gav aren't perceived the same way by others?)
But it really has all the potential of being a 5.
Diversity makes the world go round
Firstly, these guys know their stuff-without claiming or attempting to be anything other than horror movie fans. It's not pretentious, too-cool-for-school, "expert" opinions; its two mates, chatting about horror movies who are obviously big fans. Yes, Gav (with the odd cameo and stuff from Dan) makes small movies and as you start to pick up when listening, lives in an area where movies are sometimes shot, but that's about as far as it goes. When it comes to the discussions, it's pure fandom from people who know what they're on about and love it.
They're also not sycophantic; of movies or each other. They express different opinions and respect them when given. They don't like everything but won't shy away from subjects or films just because they don't necessarily rate them.
This is what you want.
Not a pair of guys who like everything for the sake of it. Guys who are afraid to express something negative in case it upsets people. That's not a real discussion. It's not real dissection. True passion comes from being able to identify and acknowledge things you don't like, as well, and being able to support your thoughts with reasons and examples. When I listen to this podcast, I don't agree with everything said and I love that! I feel like I'm in the room with them, a silent buddy - a Kenny, if you will. And sometimes I find I debate back! Yes. In public. Out loud. Exasperated because I love Saw and my loyalty of Stephen King novels left me a bit lacklustre about The Shining but I really enjoyed Dreamcatcher (not sorry) because it's loyal to the original story! Great banter and dialogues provoke that and this is what this podcast brings. You feel part of this dynamic duo and get taken along with them!
What they discuss is diverse enough so you're bound to come across stuff you haven't before and you'll then want to check it out immediately and the guys have enough knowledge, without being knobbish, that you can usually trust their opinion if you're not sure.
Not to mention, extra sections, like World of the Strange and Ask Jasmine, are awesome and break it all up with funny little idiosyncrasies. There are even music sections too!
Basically, this is a well rounded, fun, passionate exploration of the horror genre that embraces and welcomes its audience with both arms...or tentacles...or claws ;-)
Check it out!
