In this episode, we talk about the Italian Godfather of Gore, Lucio Fulci. But while everyone has seen his films like Zombie (1979) and City of the Living Dead (1980), we thought we’d discuss a few of his lesser-known films, such as Don’t Torture a Duckling (1972), The Psychic (1977), and House of Clocks (1989). So, you can either click below, go to Discover the Horror’s website, or find it on whatever platform you listen to podcasts. And once you’re done listening, let us know what you think? Thoughts? Comments? Got any suggestions for future shows? Let us know!
Fangoria! HorrorHound! Rue Morgue! Famous Monsters of Filmland! Scary Monsters! Castle of Frankenstein! Monsters from the Vault! Deep Red! These are but a few of the magazines that helped shape us younger horror fans into the knowledgeable fiends that we are today! While this subject is huge, we felt that we needed to just mention a few of the ones that were important to us way back in the beginning. So, sit back and take a listen to our latest episode where we talk horror magazines!
When talking Turkeys, the only bad movie is a boring one! And the films we discuss in this episode are anything but boring! We delve into the world of the Turkey! Films that may not be the best made in the technical aspect, or in the acting department, or even a cohesive story line, or could have you scratching your head wondering if aliens had created these films. But no matter what, they are damn entertaining.
In this episode, we discuss The Giant Claw (1957), Blood Freak (1972), and Creatures from the Abyss, aka Plankton (1994). With each of these films, there are moments where you will ask yourself, “just how did these ever get made?” I know we’re glad they did because we have all enjoyed them over and over again, for all their strangeness, oddness, or just downright craziness.
So take a listen and learn not only about Turkey Day and all the fun that ensues!
Here are the movies mentioned in this episode:
Blood Freak (1972)
The Creature Walks Among Us (1956)
Earth vs the Flying Saucers (1955)
The Giant Claw (1957)
This Island Earth (1955)
Terror from the Year 5000 (1958)

When discussing this huge criteria of film, we can’t just stop after one episode, so we’re back to discuss another 3 films, ones that might be a little more obscure to the average fan. Within this show, we discuss Jess Franco’s The Diabolical Dr. Z (1966), Jacques Tourneur’s Night of the Demon (1957), and Kaneto Shindô Onibaba (1964). You may have seen some of these, maybe all, but when is the last time you visited them and really took note on how well made they are? And if you haven’t seen them, well then, you’ll be in for a real treat. No matter the case, give a listen to hear why we think these three films are pretty damn special.
Don’t worry, we’ll be hitting this topic more than a few times, but we’ll move on next to discuss some of our other favorites.
This week’s episode we discuss the glory days of black and white cinema. We pick three of our favorite black and white movies that we feel excel in this monochrome medium and wouldn’t work with the use of color. Pull up a seat and discover the wonders of a trio of films that take advantage of the blackest shadows and brightest highlights, yet still reign as some of the greatest horror films to this day.
Welcome to the very first show of the Discover the Horror Podcast!
Horror is the second oldest film genre, usually the most profitable, and has had a massive, dedicated fan base since they first horror film appeared around 1896. But because the genre has such a long and rich history, sometimes titles get lost in the shuffle. There are always new films coming out, which makes it even easier to lose sight of what has come before.
So, our goal is to give you reasons to explore horror you’ve never seen, and give you new ways to see horror you’ve loved for years. We hope to put the spotlight on some films, filmmakers, writers, artists, composers, and any of the many other creative people that have helped the genre along over the past century. By discussing some of these different subjects, we hope to interest you enough to want to seek them out.
We’re still prepping the show but we’re hoping for an October release of our first show. Stay tuned!
