In a world where there are thousands of horror movies to choose from, four men stand up for those that MUST be seen. They have THE HORROR VISION. Your hosts Shawn Baker, Chris Saunders, Anthony Guerra & Ray Larragoitiy meet regularly at an undisclosed underground bunker and discuss all things horror!
Anthony, Tori, Ray, and Shawn gather on a Saturday night to watch Richard Stanley’s 1990’s Trash-Tec epic, Hardware! Before were get there, however, we discuss the Director’s Cut of Midsommar and the difference between theatrical and home viewing experiences, as well as Tori’s Australian Horror Binge, Melt Movies, the upcoming American Horror Story: 1984, the original The Hills Have Eyes and how the dog has the biggest body count in the picture, and the second season of Mindhunter. Oh yeah, and Ray pitches his own unique idea for a slasher movie!
And there’s not a trailer yet, but being that Joe Begos’ VFW recently premiered at Fantastic Fest alongside Bliss, we may have two Begos flicks to look forward to before the year’s out, and that’s good news to us!
Also, there’s Richard Stanley’s The Color Out of Space, the new Benson and Moorehead Synchronic, and honestly, probably a few more we’re blanking on at the moment.
Ray, Anthony, and Shawn give you their overjoyed reaction to Radio Silence’s Ready or Not, surely one of the best movies of the summer. From there, we talk about revisiting Rob Zombie’s Halloween, 1972’s Grave of the Vampire, Joe Bob Briggs, The Transfiguration, Prom Night 2, Mindhunter’s season two, Cronenberg’s Videodrome. Also, Anthony and Shawn provide a recap of their experience attending Long Beach’s MidSummer Scream Horror Con. Finally, you’ll hear for yourself how Scott Schirmer’s 2012 Epic Video Nasty Found. leaves the crew initially speechless.
Originally published in the Spring of 2018 as an Amazon exclusive, Horror Vision founder and co-host Shawn C. Baker’s break-out collection of short stories makes a new mark as the first Literary work published under the Horror Vision Press imprint. 7 Tales to chill your blood:
Scare Me: At a Hollywood movie premiere, Apple and Lucas discover a new app marketed toward enhancing the experience of upcoming horror film Scare Me. The app claims it can blur the lines of reality that separate the viewer from the film. Sounds cutting edge and cool, but can it really be a good idea to inhabit a horror flick’s reality? Probably not.
The Apartment: Upon returning to his home town, Devlin’s former bandmate Cole drops a bomb: the song they wrote and performed as an invocation to the Hebrew Angel of Terror? Not only did it work, but they didn’t complete their banishing ritual.
In His Arms, She Felt Loved: Vicki and Addison’s marriage has devolved to a violent charade, but when she kills him in self-defense, Vicki finds her problems are only beginning.
The Midnight Tree: A barback on Chicago’s southside searches for an elusive nightclub that has a long, infamous history.
Pentagram Girls: After his divorce, Gary discovers dating apps. Be careful Gary, you never know who you’ll meet online.
1422 Euclid: Sex addiction is a terrible thing. What’s worse are the creatures that feed on the addict’s pain.
A Collection of Desires: The couple that kills together stays together, right? Well, when Mark and April decide to murder her landlord, things go kind of awry…
Anthony and Shawn finally carve out a few minutes to give you their take on two of the biggest theatrical released Horror flicks this summer. They literally sit in a car and give you their spoiler-free reviews of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, and 47 Meters Down: Uncaged.

On this very special episode of The Horror Vision, Chris, Ray, Anthony, and Shawn bid farewell to Genre Icon Ruger Hauer. We talk about our favorites from his filmography and even use the back half of the episode to react to a viewing of 1992’s Split Second, which pits Hauer against… well, something. At the top of the episode, we talk about our personal horror film hatreds, Chris’s love of the new What We Do In the Shadows series, Ray’s voyage into the works of Jodorowsky and Kenneth Anger, Anthony reviews Slaughterhouse Rulez, and Shawn reports on his painstaking attempt to watch all the Friday the 13th films in sequential order for the first time.
The Horror genre is very important us here at The Horror Vision, but why? Well, this episode we spend a good chunk of time introducing ourselves, briefly summing up why and how we love Horror so much. After that, we watch Matthew Holness’ Possum. In between, topics of discussion include but are not limited to Tori’s obsession with Luca Guadagnino’s 2018 Suspiria remake/reimagining, remakes in general, and Stranger Things 3.
Anthony and Shawn went to the opening night of Midsommar, Ari Aster’s follow-up to 2018’s Hereditary. How was it? Let them tell you. WARNING – we’d recommend not listening to this or anything else about the movie before seeing it; always best to go in blind. That said, the first half of this short reaction episode is spoiler free. The second half – which is clearly delineated by THV’s infamous “Spoiler Klaxon,” is not. Listen to the first half before you see it, and the rest after.
Holy smokes! Two episodes in one week. Well, it seems we at The Horror Vision have a lot to talk about this month. Anthony, Chris, and Shawn talk about a ton of good stuff, including but not limited to Godzilla: King of Monsters, The Perfection, Jim Jarmusch’s The Dead Don’t Die, and Adam Rifkin’s batshit crazy epic The Dark Backward, all before sitting down and watching Josh Lobo’s I Trapped the Devil and then recording their reaction to it! su nioJ!
