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!
In this episode, we gather to watch and discuss James Gunn’s 2006 slime-encrusted masterpiece, Slither. Ray was a bit concerned this one would be too gross for him. Was he right? Click play and find out.
The discussion also includes but is not limited to: Anthony’s return to Clive Barker’s Nightbreed, Shawn’s final verdict on AHS 1984, Tori’s reaction to Jennifer Kent’s Babadook follow-up The Nightengale, Ray’s theatrical screening of Robert Eggers’ The Lighthouse.
Oh yeah, and our Classic Corner pick this episode is none other than Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining!
This episode we do things a bit different. First, we begin fresh from a group viewing of Michael Goi’s Mary, starring Gary Oldman and Emily Mortimor. Shawn discusses his reaction to Mike Flanagan’s sequel to The Shining, Doctor Sleep. From there we begin a new segment, The Horror Vision’s Classic Corner, with a discussion of George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead. Anthony delves into his October-long rewatch of all seven seasons of HBO’s True Blood, and Ray and Shawn’s recent explorations of genre films, including but not limited to, Haunt, the Christopher Smith’s Creep, Beyond the Gates, and as the headline says, much, much more!
No, we do not talk about Frankenstein in this episode. This is the “Frankenstein” episode because due to faulty batteries and an increasing amount of Octoberfest beer, we had to record this one three times, well into the wee hours of the morning. This one is a ‘slow burn,’ but the conversation meanders into some, frankly, pretty cool places, so strap in for Chris and Tori’s reaction to Lupita Nyong’o and Josh Gad in Little Monsters, Ray’s first encounter with the convoluted masterpiece that is Lamberto Bava’s Demons series, Gaspar Noé’s Climax, AHS: 1984 and Apocalypse, Chillerama, and, oh yeah, how Nubbins from Texas Chainsaw 2 recently ran afoul of TSA security! All that, and a whole lot more.
Holy smokes – Shawn just returned from the Screamfest Premiere of Jen and Sylvia Soska’s remake of David Cronenberg’s Rabid and he is foaming at the f*&king mouth for it. Why? Listen to this under ten-minute quick take and find out why you need to get infected ASAP!
Pardon the free-form feel of this quick episode, but it’s late and we’ve just arrived home after the sensory overload experience that is Joe Begos’ BLISS! More on that in a moment, though, as Shawn and Ray give you a quick recap of our Beyondfest experiences for the week. We start with a recap of Joe Bob Brigg’s How Rednecks Saved Hollywood – definitely not horror, but when a two-and-a-half-hour lecture about where Rednecks come from and how they eventually came to define Hollywood is this good AND it’s presented by the premiere Horror Host of our era, you’re damn right we’re talking about it on our podcast! Follow that with a screening of the newly re-gorified cut of Tammy and the T-Rex and, well, that’s the best Monday night we’ve had in quite some time. Then, as mentioned above, shortly before recording this we attended a Double Feature of Joe Begos’ two new films, the psycho-delic vampire freakout Bliss, and the all-star siege horror of VFW and, well, are you starting to see why we love Beyondfest so much?
Chris, Ray, and Shawn gather want you to mark Thursday, September 26th as the day Shudder brought Creepshow back from beyond the veil! That’s right folks, there might be a lot of hype in the horror community, but it’s well-earned; Shudder NAILED it! Here’s our reaction to the first episode.
SPOILER FREE REVIEW: It’s the most wonderful time of the year as BeyondFest 2019 goes into full swing! Shawn flies solo on this quick take review of Richard Stanley’s new film, The Color Out of Space. H.P. Lovecraft adaptations are pretty damn tricky, but Mr. Stanley nails it. Find out why!
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.
