Monster Movie Podcast
I love listening to Doc Rotten dissect horror movies of the past. Not only does he talk about some of my personal favorites but he also introduces his listeners to movies I've never heard of or overlooked.

Episode 73. Great episode, but I’m afraid I agree more often with the rest of Doc's regular gang on found footage films. But the great thing about this ep were the guest podcasters. Finding podcasts on the subjects you want is actually kind of hard and harder still to find quality podcasts with good pacing and good back and forth from podcasters with soda syrup and pieces of popcorn on their shoes or theater-educated film knowledge that goes back before that one film that turned them on. Short version: I’d like to see more guest podcasters on your podcasts.
Been dying for 80's horror!
I have been dying - pun intended - for an 80's horror podcast! I love the 80s, and I love horror! So happy to have found this, it's great!
