Even before James and I launched HorrorSexy, we had toyed with the idea of starting our own podcast. We’re still part of the Dead Air family, and we still love those guys to death, but we also have a lot of things to say, that we feel would work better under a different setting, where we have more creative control. We will continue to appear on Dead Air, but we will be releasing episodes of our own podcast in addition to that. In our first episode, we address a bit of recent controversy, wherein a writer from the Halloween Love blog, purported to be a bigger supporter of the horror genre, simply because he has opted to stop requesting screeners in favor of paying for the movies he reviews. We get a little fiery, but wanted steer clear of overt negativity. From there we move onto the literal stacks of Blu-rays that surrounded us, including some screeners of upcoming releases, and some cool finds from DiabolikDVD.com and other corners of the internet.
Check the official synopsis below, penned by the Mad Doc Terror himself. As far as listening goes, you can either use the player embedded in this post, or click the direct-download link, if you prefer to do things that way. iTunes, Stitcher, and all of that will be sorted, hopefully before the next episode goes live. In the meantime, if you like what you hear and you’d like to be notified of future episodes, you can follow us on Facebook, where such things will be announced. Welcome to HorrorSexy!
Welcome to the inaugural episode of the HorrorSexy podcast. In this episode we cover the much debated topic of screeners as used by studios as a vehicle to promote upcoming releases that was featured in an editorial on Halloween Love. Shawn Savage and Doc Terror peel back the skin on the face of reviewing and why the industry needs physical media review copies of its upcoming releases if for no other reasons than to keep physical media alive.
We also discuss the latest releases in Blu-rays as well as some of our favorite purchases from DiabolikDVD including Muck, The Babadook, the Night of the Living Dead Japanese import Blu-ray and many more.
Much thanks to Karissa for her SEXpert vocalization used in the HorrorSexy introduction and Videogram aka Magnus Sellergren for the use of the track “Regina dei Cannibali End Titles” off his first release entitled Videogram.
