Let’s Make a Horror Movie
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

It’s a late showing for our Halloween Special second leg, arriving on the very eve itself.. Spooky! (Also illness.) Jon delivers a veritable feast of deceased 'younglings' in his quest to pitch a Horror Movie that ghoulishly delivers on the “true spirit of Halloween”. Act 1 kicks off LMAHMPod’s first inter-listener spat, whilst in Act 2 Dave & Jon take a brief wander through ITV’s latest Horror TV show, Halloween 3, Little Monsters and Creepshow. Act 3 is the pitch itself, and this week because we’re feeling whimsical, we’ve gone and got ourselves and Act 4 too.. ‘Appy ‘Alloweeen Everyone!

October 13, 2019

It’s October and the first of two Halloween Specials – apt for our 10th episode milestone! It’s also a Dave week, and in Act 3 he delivers his pitch ‘The Last Bear’, a modern tale of all hallows horror. In Act 1 we cover off feedback to Jon’s pitch ‘Hand of Anubis’ from Ep 9, and in Act 2 we take a turn about the grounds of the current cultural landscape inc. Molly Gloss & 3 From Hell. All heavily infused with silly, having previously been distilled in nonsense.  Also, most of the Beatles make an appearance… somehow or other.

Act 2 – 11:40m - This week’s horrorish cultural highlights
Act 3 – 19:35m – Halloween Horror Pitch: The Last Bear (pitch starts 24:40m.. you’ll see)

Episode 9: Hand of Anubis

Episode 9: Hand of Anubis

September 30, 2019

Jon sallied into Episode 9 with the confidence of a man who knows he’s got a cracking horror movie pitch in his pocket. Being an ‘odds’ week its KJyon’s turn and he doesn’t disappoint with his delirious descent into the demented ‘Hand of Anubis’. JDubz pitches his thoughts on Ep 8’s ‘Spoils of War’ back to us in Act 1 (as well as a wee tune he made) and Act 2 touches on Tigers Are Not Afraid with an update on Jon’s ‘Kingian’ condition. Plus all the usual morbidly glib nonsense.

Act 1 - 4m   - Listener updates to Spoils of War
Act 2 - 15m - This week’s horrorish cultural highlights
Act 3 – 21m - Horror Pitch: Hand of Anubis (+post pitch movie title brainstorm)

Episode 8: Spoils Of War

Episode 8: Spoils Of War

September 16, 2019

It’s a Dave week. He’s had a drink, a bit tired, prone to a rant and more than a little bit sweary, however in Act 3 delivers ‘Spoils of War’, a horror movie pitch of [potentially] epic proportions, set in Asia Minor. Jon answers some feedback on Ep.7’s ‘Empty Skin’ pitch and accuses Stephen King of ‘borrowing’ his ideas, plus a quick note on Korean movie The Wrath as well as all the usual nonsense...  Oh and we have an intro. For now at least.

Act 1  -  6m   -  Listener input for Ep.7’s ‘Empty Skin’
Act 2  -  18m - Jon & Dave’s Fortnightly Horror Highlights (of sorts) + rant
Act 3  -  30m - Horror Pitch: Spoils Of War

Episode 7: Empty Skin

Episode 7: Empty Skin

September 3, 2019

It's a Jon/John/Jhoyn pitch this week and it's a banger. His longest yet at 2 whole sides of A4! In this episode we cover off listener input & questions for 'The Haymakers Daughter', get some FrightFest movie updates from Jon and 2 bizarre rants from Dave. One on the 'live action' Lady and The Tramp' and the other on Mothman - the latter so unhinged we've given it a rare 4th Act status. With Act 3 bringing JJJ's pitch 'Empty Skin' - a creature feature!

Act 1 - 8m   - Listener updates to The Haymaker's Daughter
Act 2 - 18m - This week's horror highlights

Episode 6: The Haymaker’s Daughter

Episode 6: The Haymaker’s Daughter

August 19, 2019

Continuing Dave & Jon's Horror Movie Pitch adventure, Dave regains the reins for this week's Horror effrontery. In this episode Act 1 sets The Triceratops on the right track with an embarrassment of listener improvements, someone continues picking holes in Ep4's demonic island antics and in Act 2 we discover Jon has been 'building up' to IT 2 in a sort of metaphysical sense whilst Dave has been putting things in his ears. Act 3 is another small mental breakdown. This time in t'English countryside in a not so distant future… or future past.. or future future.. or something..

Act 1: 3mins    - Triceratops Feedback & welcome
Act 2: 16mins  - This week's horror highlights 
Act 3: 33mins  - Horror Pitch: The Haymaker's Daughter

Episode 5: Triceratops

Episode 5: Triceratops

August 4, 2019

It’s a Jon/John pitch-week. The Sawney Bean origin story movie-pitch from Ep 4 gets deliciously updated in Act 1, adding a bit more sauce to ‘the Beans’. Dave loses his marbles over 2003’s ‘TipToes’ whilst Jon advocates for more cannibalism in print. Also, Act 3 sees Jon pitch his dystopian nightmare movie – The Triceratops.

Act 1 – 4 mins  - A Long Way From God feedback
Act 2 - 18 mins - TipToes, El Gigante, nonsense
Act 3 - 31 mins - Horror Pitch: Triceratops

PS please excuse the poor sound in this one, we were attacked by spiders, again. 100% Guaranteed better sound in the next ep or we’ll give everyone a free Lament Configuration! Get involved in Ep 6: Email: letsmakeahorrormovie@gmail.com Twitter: @LMAHMpod

Episode 4: A Long Way From God

Episode 4: A Long Way From God

July 23, 2019

WARNING: If you're new to LMAHMpod, please jump to Ep.5 (its much more coherent by then) or skip to Act 3 for the pitch. Oh, and welcome!

After a nightmarish mishap with the original Ep4 audio, Jon & Dave persevered. In this episode we recap on The Devil & Satan, mooch over a few movie gems (with a frank and bizarre reflection on the 'Cats' trailer) and get stuck into another Dave-pitch. Its a Scottish one.

Act 1 - 0 mins   - The Devil & Satan feedback
Act 2 - 14 mins - This fortnight's cultural shenanigans
Act 3 - 34 mins - Horror Pitch: A Long Way From God (or 'A Lang Wae Fae God'.. if you will)
