This week on Shock Waves, join your hosts Rob Galluzzo, Ryan Turek, Elric Kane, Rebekah McKendry, and special guest co-host Darin Scott as they delve into horror anthologies! But first, a discussion on the KING KONG franchise, spurred by the latest film KONG: SKULL ISLAND, and then the latest horrors!
Ryan revisited the '89 Robert Englund fronted PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, the original VILLAGE OF THE DAMNED, THE GATE, and EVIL DEAD II in honor of its 30th anniversary. Bekah checked out THE LORE, SUGAR HILL and GOD'S LEFT HAND DEVIL'S RIGHT HAND. Elric watched ALWAYS SHINE on Shudder, the 1988 feature PULSE, and EVILSPEAK. Rob gives an early tease of Bryan Fuller's upcoming Starz series AMERICAN GODS. Then we talk horror anthologies!
Darin Scott produced two well regarding horror anthologies, FROM A WHISPER TO A SCREAM and TALES FROM THE HOOD, which hits Blu-Ray from Scream Factory on April 18th. We figured he'd be the perfect co-host to tackle this assignment with. Each of us were instructed to pick our 5 favorite segments, wrap-around optional, and put them together to build what we'd each consider our perfect horror anthology. What were the results? Were there any unanimous picks? Tune in and find out!
