Welcome back! Happy Happy Halloween! Part 2!
This is the 2nd part of our Halloween 2012 themed episode, although you would hardly know it because the conversation on this episode takes us all over the place.
We welcomeMike Murphy of Badasses, Boobs and Body Counts and Moe Porne of Drunk On VHS and No Budget Nightmares Podcasts to the show as special surprise guests and boy do they ever deliver the surprises.
This episode is absent the normal format of the show and is more just one giant conversation on a ton of different subjects pertaining tohorror. We hit up such things as Mockingbird Lane, Tiny Toons Ghoulish Gallery, Charlie Brown’s Great Pumpkin, the latest in Dexter, The Walking Dead and American Horror Story, as well as trailers for World War Z, Hitchcock, & Maniac (remake). We also speak briefly on the much anticipated debut of the zombie apocalypse web-series Chronicles of the Dead (although in the future there will be more coverage and discussion given to it). All this and much more in a nearly 3 hour block of conversation.

Hey folks! The best month of the year caps off tonight with the grandaddy of them all, Halloween! I wish I had time this year to do something special for the website. I’ve been in the process of starting a new job the last couple of weeks, and I did finally start said job last week so it has been an adjustment getting back into the grind of full-time work and finding the proper time into updating the website as well as the podcast (new episode recording next week). At present time Evil Episodes is pretty much a one man show as far as the website goes, so when I get side tracked, the website suffers a bit. I appreciate everyone visiting the site, listening to the podcast, leaving comments etc etc etc! Hopefully by this time next year I will have a couple people contributing to the site regularly which will broaden the content I can put out daily!
Whether you are trick or treating, going to a costume party, or staying at home watching scary movies all night (or all of the above) I hope you have another awesome Halloween in 2011!
For those that have heard the buzz, but have so far missed out on probably the most talked about new horror tv show of the season (so far) no need to fret. FX plans on a marathon of the first four episodes of the series. In addition, there is a special Halloween-themed 2 part episode planned airing first on the 26th, and the second part on Wednesday November 2nd. TDHorror reports the following:
“FX will air a special Halloween marathon of the new hit drama “American Horror Story” featuring the first four episodes of the series on Monday, October 31st, beginning at 10:00 PM E/P. In addition to the Halloween marathon, series co-creators and executive producers Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk have produced a special two-part Halloween-themed episode in honor of the horror-filled holiday; the first hour airs Wednesday, October 26th, at 10:00 PM ET/PT, and the second airs Wednesday, November 2nd, at the same time. Feature film star Zachary Quinto (Star Trek) guest stars in both episodes as one of the house’s former owners.”
If you haven’t checked out American Horror Story yet, be sure to catch the marathon on Halloween Monday October 31st to catch up with the rest of us…..(also so you can send me your thoughts on the show)

A big part of the campaigns from movies such as Paranomal Activity 1 & 2 was showing the audience reaction to the flicks in commercials and viral ads. However, they are hardly the first movies to give the audiences a huge scare in the theater. I can remember experiencing screams all around me when watching THE RING in the theater on opening night. However going back even further, 1978 to be exact, the John Carpenter classic HALLOWEEN was terrifying audiences. A clip has been released online from a screening of the movie complete with audio of the crowd reacting. For all you horror movie goers, this will sound familiar:
Cool, eh? Here is hoping that the Horror genre gets back into gear soon and continues to frighten audiences like this again!
