Terror Troop 074: Meta Horror

Movies that are self-aware, where the lines get blurred. Otherwise known as Meta. That is what we’re looking at this week! We start it off with a blast from the past, a little movie called Fade To Black from 1980. This one isn’t as much self-aware as it is other movies finding their way into the story. See what the Troopers make of this offbeat film. At the break, Boss Butcher gets the skinny on this year’s London Frightfest from our inside man, Malky Hughes from Scotland. Hear about the 26 (!) movies Malky took in over the 5 day festival, as well as some of the hand outs and exciting guests that appeared! Then the show continues with the wonderful Wes Craven’s New Nightmare!! Dan of the Dead came up with this show, and we had alot of fun with it!

Show Lineup: Boss Butcher, Bloody Lizzy, Wildman Willis, The Emily and Dan of the Dead. Special Report from Malky Hughes!

Terror Troop 046: Crazy Babies

A mother delivers a cursed child and another gives birth to a monster created by pollution and medication. These are the movies we look at in this week’s Terror Troop! The first one we examine is a movie that goes by more than one title. Here are a few: Sharon’s Baby, I Don’t Want To Be Born, and The Devil Inside Me from 1975. The second feature is the classic, It’s Alive (1974). See what Boss, Lizzy and Willis think of these infant horrors, along with childbirth stories, strip club tales and a few laughs!
