Last Rites - Episode 12 Horror News TV The Strain Fan Podcast

With episode 12, The Strain spins its wheels a bit as it gears up for next week’s finale.

The Entity (1982) - Episode 71 Monster Movie Podcast

Join us this week as we revisit The Entity (1982) from director Sidney J. Furie and writer Frank De Felitta adapting the true tale of Carla Moran who was convinced she was being haunted and abused by a violent, unseen spirit. A shocker in its day, the film lives up to the hype providing scares, thrills and shocking horror. Sure, the ending is bent, but getting there is impressive.

"A Story So Shocking, So Threatening, It Will Frighten You Beyond All Imagination. The ultimate story of supernatural terror! "

The Black Saint (Decades of Horror: 1970s podcast) steps into the Eighties with Doc Rotten and very special guest host, award winning director Christopher G. Moore (Foodie, Disengaged) to discuss the disturbing and controversial film The Entity. Charles Berstein is recognized for his imposing, frightening score and Barbara Hershey delivers an Oscar-worthy performance.

The Entity is an often overlooked haunted house picture due to a combination of its own subject matter and the arrival of the mega-hit juggernaut, Poltergeist. But this film deserves to be remembered and re-watched. Even after 30 years, the effects and the story remain terrifying and unbelievable. The directions, the cinematography and the acting is above par. But, damn, that ending nearly destroys everything. Check out The Black Saint, Christopher G. Moore and Doc Rotten’s discussion on this highly volatile film.

Prophecy (1979) Episode 5 Decade of Horror 1970s

"She Lives. Don’t Move. Don’t Breathe. She Will Find You." The tag line promises Prophecy (1979) to be the next big "Monster Movie" with director John Frankenheimer behind the camera and David (The Omen) Selzer behind the pen. The film never lives up to that lofty goal but gives it everything it has. The film stars Robert Foxworth, Talia Shire, Armand Assante and Richard Dysart. The Black Saint and Doc Rotten tackle another groovy horror film from the 1970s.

Decades of Horror 1970s 
Episode 5 – Prophecy (1979) 

Joining The Black Saint and Doc Rotten once again is North Carolina film maker, Bill Mulligan, who lends his thespian, effects making, screen writing talents to the duo’s take on Prophecy. The biggest problem with the film is the mutant bear itself, awkward and a little goofy, it draws more laughs that screams. Isely (Richard Dysart) describes the Katahdin monster was “larger than a dragon with the eyes of a cat” but it is often called the salami bear. Stephen King is known to have referenced the film as one of his favorites, Doc Rotten, The Black Saint and Bill Mulligan re-examine the film to roaring delight and cheep 70s thrills.

An American Werewolf in London is a classic, a must see horror film and one of top examples of horror comedies of all time. Director John Landis is on top of his game with a script he honed for 10 plus years bringing a perfect blend of genres, pacing and timing. Then there is the special effects, the full body transformation of David into the werewolf, brightly lite, all practical and riveting. The film also ties in brilliant use of music, Blue Moon, Bad Moon Rising and Moondance. Despite the music and the laughs, the film is also scary with vicious attacks on the moors and in the London tubes.
