Act 3 is the aforementioned ‘King Fae’ horror movie pitch, whilst Act 4 is the post-mortem and title-search as well as Jon’s recollections of the famous Mary Poppins out-take ‘defecation scene’. And much more, including free, niche books!

Episode 19: The Vaults

Episode 19: The Vaults

March 4, 2020

“It’s all Brow”. Ep19 arrives with a contemporary, ghoulish horror movie pitch from co-host Dave and it’s a straight up gore-fest. But the fun kind. Set in “one of the most haunted places in the UK”, there’s a touch of the ‘will they’, ‘won’t they’ keep hold of their own face. A story as old as time. Act 1 delivers some dedicated Nun feedback from those in the know, whilst Act 2 touches on some good horrory reads as well as a quick swerve into Aesop’s classic ‘The Tale of The P!ss!ng Shrew’. Act 3 is the soon to be modern classic ‘The Vaults’, whilst Act 4 delivers a flurry of alternate titles. Oh and for some reason Robert Durst is in this one. Briefly.

Act 1 – 02:52m - Listener feedback & updates to Ep18’s pitch ‘Mission’.
Act 2 – 15:55m - This fortnight’s horrorishy cultural highlights
Act 3 – 20:40m - Horror Pitch: The Vaults
Act 4 – 63:04m - Pitch Post-mortem & title brainstorm

Episode 18: Mission

Episode 18: Mission

February 19, 2020

Stepping up like a true gentleman when co-host Dave is in need, Jon takes the reins again this week with ‘Mission’. A bleak, claustrophobic horror set in a house of Nuns. A Mission, if you will. *cough* Anyhoo, in a blasphemous break from tradition, this is the second Jon-pitch episode in a row, but boy it delivers! Dave does contribute a bit by causing the sound to go haywire for the first 3 mins before finally arriving at something moderately audible. It’s worth it though as in Act 1 we receive some feedback castigation from ‘JDubz’ (and some ideas for Ep17’s pitch), Act 2 touches on a few books before veering off into ‘Zulu Jesus’, Act 3 of course is Jon’s dark pitch ‘Mission’, and bringing up the rear as always now in Act 4 is a quick natter on the pitch ideas before more Zulu Jesus, some Jonny Ghand, Sister Rodimus Prime and the Great Star Wars controversy of 'One Glove'. 

Act 1 – 02:36m - Listener feedback & updates to Ep17’s pitch ‘Nuckelavee Country’.
Act 2 – 14:19m - This fortnight’s horrorishy cultural highlights
Act 3 – 23:54m - Horror Pitch: Mission
Act 4 – 48:14m - Pitch Post-morten, title brainstorm, Zulu Jesus + Jonny Ghandi + Sister Rodimus Prime + Star Wars 'One Glove' controversy

Episode 17: Nuckelavee Country

Episode 17: Nuckelavee Country

February 3, 2020

It’s Episode 17! A Jon week and the final part of our Sequels Month. In Act 3 3DK delivers his follow up to Dave’s to ‘A Long Way From God’ (from ‘Early Years LMAHMPod’) with a cannibalism infused, Scottish Highlands escapade including a regiment of the Queen’s finest and a satchel full of eyeballs! Act 1 as ever sees feedback on last episode’s pitch with a veritable feast of input from listeners, whilst Act 2 takes a brief look at the Witcher but is more a long winded apology to Mr Cavill and a paen to his nocturnal habits, amongst other cultural touchpoints from the last fortnight. Act 3 is the pitch and Act 4 gives us the pitch post-mortem as well as a bizarre conversation about inter-species onanism, specifically regarding Jon and Primates in a life or death hypothetical. I mean, it’s us, what were you expecting?

Oh and sorry its bit late.

Act 1 – 3:33m   – Listener updates to Ep16's ‘Fertilized Earth’ sequel
Act 2 – 19:33m – This week’s horrorishy cultural highlights

Episode 16: Fertilized Earth

Episode 16: Fertilized Earth

January 12, 2020

It’s ‘Sequels Month’ here at LMAHMpod, and as it’s a Dave week he kicks proceedings off with a brutal, desolate sequel to Jon’s Episode 13 Pitch ‘Goodbye Tomorrow’. Picking up the futuristic setting 6 years after the events of the first somewhat sci-fi infused horror movie pitch, Dave adds in some listener feedback from the original and fully lets the crazy out again. As usual there is listener Feedback to Ep15 in Act 1, which also takes a detour into 20 year old events from UK TV Soap ‘Hollyoaks’ with very little justification, before Act 2 jumps into BBC’s Dracula mini-series and a brainstorm around potential Harold ‘Harry’  / ‘Shippers’ Shipman movie titles. Act 3 as ever is the pitch itself – if you haven’t heard Episode 13, its not essential but you may enjoy it more if you do (or you may not, who knows!). And Act 4 is the pitch post-mortem, title brainstorm and a delirious segment on ‘Toilet Shows’. Yep.

Act 1 – 4:30m   – Listener updates to Ep15's ‘Trying Christmas’
Act 2 – 17:48m – This week’s horrorishy cultural highlights
Act 3 – 25:48m – Horror Pitch: Fertilized Earth – sequel to Goodbye Tomorrow (Ep#13)
Act 4 – 54:25m – Pitch Post-mortem, titles & Toilet Shows!

Episode 15: Trying Christmas

Episode 15: Trying Christmas

January 1, 2020

As 2020 rises from the ashes of 2019, Jon delivers his latest Horror Movie pitch in the form of ‘Trying Christmas’ – part two of our Christmas Specials! With touches of a historically accurate Victorian London throughout, this episode delivers all the usual farce. Act 1 sees some audience updates to last Episode’s ‘Sunken God’s pitch, Act 2 takes a Christmassy turn about the cultural grounds of the last fortnight, and Act 3 is Jon’s family-Christmas horror-pitch with a bunch of additional nonsense immediately preceding it. Act 4 is 5 mins of post-mortem followed by a quick name-search and hugely inappropriate laughing session to do with orphans. It’s really not a laughing matter.

Act 1 – 4:24m   – Listener updates to ‘Sunken Gods’
Act 2 – 12:54m – This week’s horrorishy cultural highlights
Act 3 – 23:42m – Horror Pitch: Trying Christmas
Act 4 – 47:00m – Pitch Post-mortem, naming & utter nonsense

Episode 14: Sunken Gods

Episode 14: Sunken Gods

December 18, 2019

Grab life by the neck, wrestle it to the ground and kick it to death with us in Episode 14 – the first of our two Christmas Specials! An aural Christmas stocking, it’s filled with glitter and pool balls, ready to be liberally applied to the face or head. Magical. It’s a Dave week and in Act 3 we cover off ‘Kid Smack’ and the problems of getting heroin for children at Christmas, as well as a getting a belting Horror Movie Pitch set in Ancient Greece – ‘Sunken Gods’. Act 1 sees some grim but wonderful listener updates to Ep13’s ‘Goodbye Tomorrow’ pitch, and Act 2 does a whistle-stop tour of the few things we’ve had the time to look at or hear, what with it being Christmas ‘n all. And there’s a bonus 4min ‘shot in the face’ analogy that really gets put through some gymnastics… If you like this episode, give us a Peregrine on Chopsy! (see Act 4).  

Act 1 – 3:45   – Listener updates to ‘Goodbye Tomorrow’

Act 2 – 14:53 – This week’s horrorishy cultural highlights

Act 3 – 22:53 – Horror Pitch: Sunken Gods

Act 4 – 56:32 – Pitch Post Mortem, Title Brainstorm & nonsense.

Episode 13: Goodbye Tomorrow

Episode 13: Goodbye Tomorrow

December 3, 2019

Jon barrels into LmaHmPod’s woodsy-cabin this week with our first firm foray into off-world oddities, Goodbye Tomorrow. An upbeat number about a sort of apocalypse. Sort of. It is a pitch for a horror movie after all. Act 1 sees, amongst others, some chunky feedback from JDubz, including some ‘far-seeing’ with feedback on today’s as yet unheard pitch! Act 2 as always rattles through the things we enjoyed that we stare at with our eyes, and there’s a snifter of an Act 4 given that Jon already pre-named his pitch. Tsk. Oh and Jon's new name is '3DK'.

Act 1 – 4:20m   – Listener updates to ‘Down The Mountain’ &, weirdly, ‘Goodbye Tomorrow’
Act 2 – 21:22m – This week’s horrorishy cultural highlights
Act 3 – 25:55m – Horror Pitch: Goodbye Tomorrow
Act 4 – 46:55m – Pitch Post-mortem

Episode 12: Down The Mountain

Episode 12: Down The Mountain

November 17, 2019

A somewhat recovered Dave takes centre stage in Act 3 for this episode’s Horror Movie pitch ‘Down The Mountain’. You know when stuff happens on a mountain, it’s infrequently pleasant. In Act 1 we’re treated to a listener’s ‘choose your own feedback’ feedback on the prior LMAHMian Gordian Knot  and Act 2 skates around things wot goes in ears and eyes. Also, probably 4 acts from here on fyi.. Lastly, Jons a bit quiet in the mix. The sound engineer is in pieces…

Act 1 – 4:24m   – Listener updates to ‘The Education of Ellis’
Act 2 – 17:00m – This week’s horrorishy cultural highlights
Act 3 – 23:27m – Horror Pitch: Down The Mountain
Act 4 – 55:28m – Pitch Post-mortem, Title Brainstorm & Osama Bin Laden’s eyes
