The holidays are upon as and in the spirit of Thanksgiving, your hosts Rob Galluzzo, Rebekah McKendry, Elric Kane, and Ryan Turek have gotten together to discuss the things we're most thankful for this year! From horror events and shops, to board games, to genre labels, to record releases, and more, we highlight the coolest things the genre had to offer this year. Conventions? The FRIDAY THE 13TH video game? Letterboxd? Other podcasts? Let's kick back, relax, and celebrate all the horror goodies we're all thankful for!
Join hosts Rob Galluzzo, Elric Kane, Rebekah McKendry, and Ryan Turek as they welcome special guest Adam Rifkin to the show! But first, the latest horrors! Ryan's been on a "giallo" kick and went back to Dario Argento's THE BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE, as well as THE LIMEHOUSE GOLEM and THE RESURRECTED. Rob braved a triple feature of DRACULA 3D, I, FRANKENSTEIN 3D, and THE MUMMY 3D. Elric reports back on THE LORE, A GHOST STORY, BAD MATCH, and KILLING GROUND. Bekah checked out THE SATANIST from 1968, THE RIFT from 1990, and the book THE MAY QUEEN MURDERS. Then they welcome very special guest Adam Rifkin, aka Rif Coogan! They delve into Rifkin's early days in the business with films like PSYCHO COP RETURNS, THE DARK BACKWARD, and THE CHASE, which gave Henry Rollins his first big screen credit. He explains how he ended up being a sought after screenwriter responsible for MOUSETRAP and SMALL SOLDIERS. As well as writing and directing a new movie with his hero Burt Reynolds. All this and more on the latest Shock Waves!
Another Halloween has come and gone, but the horror chat continues as usual on Shock Waves! Join your hosts Rob Galluzzo, Elric Kane, Rebekah McKendry, and Ryan Turek as they discuss what post-2000 genre films are destined to be considered classics!
