On this edition of the show we welcome special guest “Wildman” Willis Wheeler of Terror Troop to chat with us. We review the Canadian anthology series Darknet which is now streaming on netflix. We also discuss the finale of American Horror Story Freakshow. Did we finally get a proper curtain call or did another season end on a mediocre whimper? Leading everything off is a bit of what we watched, what we’ve read and what we’ve been playing since we last recorded. Also, Willis was not happy about the Royal Rumble, although I think the majority of that rant was before we were actually recording. Enjoy the show!
You can contact the show via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or via the brand new voicemail line at 760-661-7384 We appreciate any and all feedback!
Welcome back to the “Not So Evil” Sidecast is back!
As our 17th episode falls on the month of October, we saw only fit to tie in a horror theme to this episode, but how would we make this a unique experience for our listeners? Well, we decided it would be an interesting and fun thing to explore the first horror movies each cast member watched, and the how/why behind the situation. We all bring a pretty unique story to the table here. This episode is sort of a hybrid of the main cast and the sidecast as Jamie & Brian are filling in for Jeff & Iris. How fitting that Mike brings in a couple of ringers to spice things up, right? Please join us as we take a trip down memory lane as we discuss the movie(s) that sent us down the path of horror fandom for life!
On this episode we tackle the sequel to The Dead…….The Dead 2. The first entry was polarizing, will this one be any different? This course sparks discussion and side thoughts on the zombie genre overall (we couldn’t help ourselves). No one better to discuss all things zombie, with than Corey Graham, right? Yes that’s right he is back for most of this episode! We kicked things off with a Top 10 “Horror films that deserve a proper video game” list and had plenty to say with that. Afterwards the show is rounded out with all the latest in horror TV including more thoughts on Z Nation and The Straaaaain! (This episode was recorded before the season finale of The Strain, so we will discuss that on ep 70)
Do not adjust the dial, your TV horror fix is back!
It’s Evil Episodes Podcast #66 -The 66th One.
On this edition of the podcast we get started with a rather long news segment including news on TellTale’s Walking Dead game, a possible Evil Dead TV Show starring Bruce Campbell, a trailer for The Walking Dead’s 5th season, and a whole lot more. We then breakdown our thoughts on the first five episodes of Hemlock Grove’s second season. After that we get another beer review from Mike & Corey along with special guest Jeffrey X Martin of the Kiss the Goat Podcast (and so much more). Then we get to the segment “everyone” has been waiting for, our discussion on Sharknado 2…..first episode in awhile that is a monster in itself, clocking in at three and a half hours……hope you enjoy!
We now return you to your regularly scheduled podcast; it’s Evil Episodes #62!
On this installment we officially welcome Brian back for the first time as a permanent co-host on the show (as if you all didn’t want this to happen, right?) Yes, the show is officially going to four co-hosts once Corey returns! We open the show with a few short news items and a discussion on watching Horror TV vs. All in one shot on netflix/DVR. Where do you stand on this?
Ti West’s The Sacrament is discussed, reviewed, dissected etc etc……..and we give our thoughts onNBC’s Rosemary’s Baby remake as well asHannibal’s S2 finale discussion & finish out with some Penny Dreadful gushing…….baby-satan, cults, cannibals, and monsters…..oh my!
A remake of the 2010 film La Casa Muda out of Uruguay, Silent House follows the same basic premise for about seventy five percent of the way. The continuous shot style might possibly split viewers, with some complaining it is too closely related to the shaky cam nature of found footage movies. One element that won’t be argued is the acting of Elizabeth Olsen which is superb. Click the image below to be taken to my review of SILENT HOUSE.
Totally un-releated to the infamous Leprechaun franchise starring Warwick Davis, Leprechaun’s Revenge is a SYFY original movie releasing on St. Patrick’s Day 2012 (Saturday March 17th)
Synopsis from IMDB:
“An evil leprechaun who has been imprisoned within the roots of a majestic old oak tree, is accidentally set loose on St. Patrick’s Day. Once free, he takes out his bloody revenge on the descendants of the people who originally imprisoned him”
Welcome back to your bi-weekly fix of what goes bump in the night on the small screen! With your hosts EvilMike & DeadDarrick. On this episode we get into Oren Peli’s The River which is airing weekly on ABC. Terror on the Amazon river as a group searches for Dr. Cole, but what sort of macabre discoveries will they encounter during their search? Found Footage style horror finally makes it’s way to TV!
Mike gives his first impressions of the game Dead Rising 2, tons of zombie carnage on display but is it enough to keep him interested beyond a few initial skull-bashing sessions!?! Then we close out the episode with another edition of Horrorpiece Theater featuring discussion on the films Waxwork & Waxwork 2! Supernatural goofball horror from the 80′s! What could go wrong, right? *ahem*
I had heard good things about this flick for the last month or so and decided to track it down & watch it. I have heard some call this more of a thriller than a horror movie, but I really that is just semantics. It serves up some scares, twists, red herrings, and a pretty awesome post-kill shot. Did all of this add up to a movie I’d recommend? Here is an excerpt from the review:
“The fact that Julia is suffering herself from a degenerative eye disease that is slowly making her blind helps make the movie feel like a race against time for Julia to solve the mystery of what exactly happened to her sister. The movie does a very good job of spooking out the viewer whenever Julia is alone on screen whether it be in her home or following clues that she has collected around town. You will definitely be looking over your own shoulder the next time the power goes out at your place after watching this flick.”

It’s Friday the 13th again! I hadn’t really planned on much for the website today being that I have been busy with work and preparing for the baby girl coming soon. Earlier today I re-post a link to an article from right around the time I started the site last year in which I some thoughts on the Friday the 13th series. Well now that I am home, the wife is asleep and I have some free time I decided to review a Friday the 13th flick. Not just any sequel, but the one that seems to be the most polarizing. No, not Jason Takes Manhattan, that one is pretty much universally hated (but still loved in a “Well hey, it’s Paramount era Jason, at least, right?” way) Rather I am talking about Friday the 13th Part 5: A New Beginning that’s right. A lot of people hate this installment if for no other reason than the “major reveal” at the end of the movie, which if you did indeed read the title to the thread, probably now know….(although I’d imagine you’ve already seen the flick many times if you are reading this thread). So yeah check out my review aka vehement defense of the flick after the jump!
