Terrific podcast by hilarious people! Can't wait for episode 2!
Rare, forgotten, vintage horror movies discussed by two people who have a supernatural amount of equally rare knowledge.
If you consider yourself a horror fan, this podcast is a must. I haven't yet been disappointed.
Great Way to Spend an Hour
I just discovered this podcast, and I've really enjoyed each episode. John Wooley and Mike Price are wonderful authorities on these forgotten films. I loved hearing actual, analytical discussion about these poverty row films, and I like too that they don't focus strictly on the horror films, "How Do You Do?" a comedy featuring Bert Gordon's Mad Russian character is a fantastic episode.
The format of the show is like two old friends talking about each of these films, and then running off onto whatever tangents come up during their conversation. You never know where the topic will go.
If you love classic B-Movies, give this one a listen.
