It’s that time of year again, monster boys and girls. Horrortober is upon us, and who doesn’t want to fill their days and nights with a little blood and guts, screams and scares? Welcome to the fourth annual Monster Men Halloween movie curation event, thanks to the killer game book, 31 Days of Terror. Author Steve Hutchison has done it again, filling the pages with new categories and a host of movies to tickle your horror bone.
Looking for something new to watch or revisit a lost classic? Just roll the dice and follow the book as it takes you down a path of darkness and delight. Jack and Hunter pony up to the craps – we mean, 31 Days of Terror table – and get to rolling. What follows is an unexpected viewing list, curated by the book and the fickle finger of fate. Play and watch along, or grab a copy of the book and set your own viewing list that will take you all throughout Horrortober and deep into Halloween night.
It’s another Monster Men Horror Hangout. This time welcome the delightful V. Castro (Violet) to the show. She is the author of Hairspray and Switchblades, Maria The Wanted and the Legacy of The Keepers, as well as her debut vampire novel series and The Erotic Modern Life of Malinalli the Vampire- an erotic novella series. She is a Mexican American ex-pat living in the UK.
Our conversation ranges from vampires and horror to erotica and female/Latino representation in the genre. We also touch upon Nic Cage, Murder Hornets and life under quarantine. It’s a mixed bag and it’s a blast.
It’s time for the Monster Men to answer your questions. We asked our viewers to submit their questions and boy, did they step up. We’ve got a great show that covers everything from horror movies to the paranormal.
Some examples include:
Who are your favorite modern horror directors?
What’s the movie you disagree on the most?
Has any horror book ever TRULY scared you to the point you had to set it aside?
What haunted place would you like to visit?
What is the absolute worst movie you have watched?
Thanks for your questions. We hope you enjoy our answers.
For this Horror Hangout we welcome back our old pal, horror author & musician Glenn Rolfe. He’s an old friend of the show and one hell of a guy. This particular show really sums up what our Horror Hangouts are all about; a great, and often hilarious conversation that ranges from Guns ‘n Roses to drinking with minor league pro-wrestlers. Oh, and don’t worry, there is plenty of horror talk, including Glenn’s new vampire novel, Until Summer Comes Around, which comes out in May of 2020.
Be sure to check out Glenn’s other books as well, including The Window, Becoming, Blood and Rain, The Haunted Halls, Chasing Ghosts, Abram’s Bridge, Things We Fear, Boom Town, and the collections, Slush and Land of Bones.
Monster Men Ep: 151: Talking Baseball and Horror Movies
It’s another Monster Men Horror Hangout. This time we are joined by return guest, Matt Manochio. Matt is the author of Close Call, The Highwayman, The Dark Servant, Sentinels and Twelfth Krampus Night. Matt’s latest book, Close Call, is a baseball-themed thriller where a botched call of a perfect game leads to murder.
This leads to a conversation about baseball, horror movies and life under quarantine. You can find Matt Manochio at: Web: http://www.mattmanochio.com
It’s another Stay at Home Horror Hangout. This time we are joined by horror author and audio book narrator Chris Sorensen. In an effort to stay connected during the COVID-19 virus lock-down, we are inviting our friends from the horror community to join us for a chat.
Chris’s books include THE NIGHTMARE ROOM, THE HUNGRY ONES and THE MESSY MAN. He also has a fascinating career as a reader of audio-books. Close your eyes and you just might recognize that smooth voice.
We cover such topics as the life of an audio-book narrator, UFOs, horror movies & novels and a toast to the great Stuart Gordon. It’s an interesting and fun conversation. Pull up a chair and enjoy.
Welcome to our first ever Stay at Home Horror Hangout
It is a crazy time. The Coronavirus has swept the world and forced us all to stay home as much as possible for the foreseeable future. In these kinds of times, connection with others is vital. That’s why the Monster Men have decided to host a Stay at Home Horror Hangout.
We’ve invited horror author and podcaster Laurel Hightower as our guest for a chat about all things horror. We talk about the books and movies we plan to enjoy during the shutdown, the life of a horror author and podcaster and the importance of the horror community in days like these.
Laurel Hightower is the author of Whispers in the Dark and one of the hosts of the Ink Heist podcast.
This time on Monster Men we welcome a special guest; horror author Hunter Shea. His new novel SLASH is a must read for horror fans, especially if you grew up loving slasher flicks. (And who didn’t?)
Hunter Shea is one of the hottest horror writers on the scene today. He also co-hosts a popular horror video podcast called Monster Men. Yeah, that’s right… our guest is one of the hosts of the show. The horror content business is a small world, folks.
Hunter tells us about his new book and the inspiration behind it. There’s lots of love for the slasher genre in this episode. Check it out and then go get SLASH, and tell a friend.
