Blood Red, AUDIO EDITION: Episode 3 — Host (2020) and The Platform (2019)

Someday, we’ll be able to do these horror excursions in a more timely manner. But until then, here’s the good news: we’re sorry!

By way of an apology for our first episode in… almost two months… we jump back in the saddle with a conversation about TWO horror films for your listening, er… pleasure? And guess what? Our resident horror noob, Buke, picked both of them!

Blood Red: Hooptober Se7en – Week Five

It was the week of sequels…it was the week of video nasties.  It was also the week of a damn fun anthology film.  October is finally getting to its true form, with temperatures dropping (at least here) and the leaves moving from the beautiful array of colors to crumpled and dead at my feet.  Only a few weeks left to get this marathon completion, and then maybe I can focus on actually writing a metal review or two.

Anyway, let’s get to the recaps… Continue reading

Blood Red: Hooptober Se7en – Week Four

Greetings and salutations, friends and fiends.  Peeking out from under the covers to see if the world has gotten any better since last week and…uh…yeah, nope.  Gonna just get back under here with my pretzels and beer and VCR and see if playing more horror movies will help improve things.  At least we got some hilarious tweets about that fly in Pence’s hair.

Anyway, let’s get to the recaps… Continue reading

Blood Red: Hooptober Se7en – Week Three

I don’t know what to tell you.  Anything I can write about in this post can’t and won’t compare to the terror and insanity I’m seeing every time I click on Twitter, or check my news feed on my phone.  The weather has finally moved to the brisk and golden autumn I crave every year, but it’s tainted by a growing horror that we might never escape the insanity of the times.  There’s nothing left to say when you’re watching films about masked killers,  satanic witchcraft and throat emerging aliens just for a spot of normalcy, you know?

Anyway, let’s get to the recaps… Continue reading

Blood Red: Hooptober Se7en – Week Two

Blood Red on a Tuesday?  You must be mad!  

Or lazy and forgetful…it’s been a whirlwind of horror watching and garage sales (surprised at how few people went for the $1 a CD bin when I had some killer Bathory and Blue Aus Nord in there*), so we’re a bit behind in posting these recaps.  This week kicked off with a wicked 90s Italian tax on House of Wax with the gory Wax Mask before evoking enough nightmare fuel for the entire month in The Lighthouse.  Thank god that movie was fantastic because I was able to ride the high while watching the truly awful remake of Cabin Fever before becoming only a little confused watching Ringu 2, the second sequel (as in the second time a sequel to the film was made) to the Hideo Nakata classic.  Then we wrap up with an obscure but twisted little gem in Fade to Black, which has nothing to do with Metallica but has everything to do with a guy who murders people dressed up like his favorite Hollywood characters.

Enough talk, let’s get to the recaps… Continue reading
