Are some classic horror films more akin to graphic modern horror than is often thought? Were they indeed "five reels of transgression followed by one reel of retribution"? 

Halloweekly interviews fantastic horror author and expert Jon Towlson as we discuss his books THE TURN TO GRUESOMENESS IN AMERICAN HORROR FILMS, 1931-1936 and SUBVERSIVE HORROR CINEMA:COUNTERCULTURAL MESSAGES OF FILMS FROM FRANKENSTEIN TO THE PRESENT and great movies like Bride Of Frankenstein, Freaks, Mad Love, The Mummy, Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde and much, much more.

Of the major horror movie monsters, werewolves are a rarer breed. Which means a lot of werewolf movies get unfairly missed by the audience at large (and once in awhile, FAIRLY missed, unfortunately). 

In this episode we tackle 2014's Late Phases: Night Of The Lone Wolf and 1981's Wolfen. One of these movies we wanted to hit over the head with a silver-headed cane, and the other made us howl with delight.

Lao Tzu said “To lead people, walk behind them.” That makes Micheal Myers the greatest leader in horror history! This election season has put us in the mood to examine the idea of leadership through the lens of horror movies and shows. 

The concept of leadership in horror is a fascinating one, since most horror movies are just a long unfolding of crisis situations that call for decision-making skills and cooperation. In this episode we name our votes for 3 characters who were the best leaders in horror, and the 3 worst. 

Which movies made our list? Is The Mist an example of good leadership or bad? Who handled the zombie apocalypse best? Has host Nick been recruited by a certain sympathetic gentleman? Let's break it all down.

Halloweekly hosts Nick & George and special guest Alex discuss the horror hit Don't Breathe.

It's a movie smart enough to use sweeping, mobile camerawork when the main characters are feeling confident and to pin the camera in one claustrophobic crouching shot when the same characters realize they are in deep s**t. But is Don't Breathe consistently good or even great? And why is that dog smiling?
