Three spooky episodes from ‘The Dollop’ podcast

10-for-10-masthead-rast-3Ghosts, American vampire scares, 18th-century psychic teens, and Ouija boards! Here are three episodes from ‘The Dollop’ podcast that will make your Hallowe’en a lot more awesome!

Okay, first, a warning: don’t listen to this podcast while attending, say, a funeral or operating, say, a chainsaw. Throughout each episode, you will experience multiple bouts of spontaneous and uncontrollable laughter that, in the former situation, will probably get you dis-invited from any upcoming funerals, and in the latter, will probably mean, well, a closed casket for you.

‘We Hate Movies’ podcast decimates ‘What You Did Last Summer’

10-for-10-masthead-rast-1We Hate Movies podcast, episode 175—I Still Know What You Did Last Summer (1998).

The gang at WHM don’t really hate movies, in fact, they love them. However, some movies really test that love. Case in point: the 1998 Jennifer Love Hewitt / Freddie Prinze Jr. vehicle, I Still Know What You Did Last Summer. Costing 25 million dollars (or, as I like to put it, a quarter-of-a-hundred million freakin’ dollars), it grossed a respectable 84 million, proving that film reviewers aren’t always right.

99 Percent Invisible/Radio Diaries: The woman who survived an 80-story fall

99 Percent Invisible home pageRoman Mars, host of the 99 Percent Invisible podcast, always has interesting stories on his show. This one, produced by the Radio Diaries podcast, left me gob-smacked. North-American-B-25D-Mitchell-'Yankee-Warrior'-_-Flickr---CROPPEDIn the summer of 1945, a B-25 bomber flown by an experienced pilot was traveling from Massachusetts to New York City. It was a routine charter flight, carrying a few servicemen as passengers. The fog had been constant but manageable for most of the trip. However, as they approached their destination, the fog began to thicken, reducing their visibility to zero. The pilot requested landing clearance, but La Guardia Airport denied his request. Ignoring warnings from the traffic controllers, he began his descent anyway. After a moment, the clouds broke slightly, and he found himself flying among the skyscrapers of New York City! Empire State Building on fire after being rammed by a B-25 bomber - July 28, 1945 | Flickr - Photo Sharing!At the same time, a 19-year-old woman named Betty Lou Oliver was working on the 79th floor of the Empire State Building. An elevator operator, she was waiting at her station post for the next group of passengers to convey between floors. Suddenly, there was a muffled explosion, and her elevator car shuddered horribly. What happened next was both a nightmare and a miracle…

‘100 Years of Horror’ wraps up ’80s retrospective with The Cellar!

100 Years of Horror homepageWhen Phantom Erik isn’t co-hosting the peerless podcast, Giallo Ciao! Ciao! with fellow-Renaissance man Creep Creepersin, he’s taking listeners on a fascinating tour of filmic fear with his 100 Years of Horror podcast! In episode 77, Erik and his posthumous pal Lester Reaper take an apprehensive look back at the previous nine episodes of 100YoH, covering the dread-infused decade that was—the ’80s.

Then they tear open the doors on The Cellar, a creepy little movie from 1989 about a boy who discovers an evil Comanche ghost in the cellar of his family home, and then has to stop the ancient spirit from fulfilling his dastardly plans! Erik and Lester are also joined by a mysssterrrry gueeesssst for a discussion of that most well-worn of horror film tropes, American Indian burial grounds and ancient curses!

Once you’ve listened to this episode, check out Erik’s previous shows covering eighties horror:
Spiritual terror: The Serpent & the Rainbow (1988) | The Believers (1987)
Lovecraftian horror: From Beyond (1986)
