Episode 10: The Last Bear [Halloween Special #1]

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 1 – 4:00m   - Listener updates to ‘Hand of Anubis’
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 – 03:56m - Listener updates to Spoils of War
Act 2 – 15:22m - This week’s horrorish highlights inc. Tigers Are Not Afraid
Act 3 – 20:11m - Horror Pitch: Hand of Anubis
Act 4 – 37:36m - Pitch post-mortem & title search

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  -  06:05m - Listener input for Ep.7’s ‘Empty Skin’
Act 2  -  17:24m - Fortnightly Horror Highlights inc. Jeff Vandermeer & Ambergris Trilogy + The Wrath movie
Act 3  -  28:46m - Horror Pitch: Spoils Of War
Act 4  -  60:06m - Post-mortem bits & pieces

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.

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: 3:31 mins    - Triceratops Feedback & welcome
Act 2: 16:13 mins  - This week's horror highlights inc. Arrow Video Podcast & Bloodstock
Act 3: 27:58 mins  - Horror Pitch: The Haymaker's Daughter
Act 4: 63:55 mins  - Pitch post-mortem & title brainstorm

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 – Triceratops.

Act 1 – 8:14 mins  - A Long Way From God feedback
Act 2 - 17:10 mins - TipToes, El Gigante, The Terror, nonsense
Act 3 - 30:18 mins - Horror Pitch: Triceratops
