Beers for Fears.

What beer pairs best with a horror movie? It’s the third annual Spooky Spirits episode of Monster Men, where we sample horror and Halloween themed beverages. (Beers, wines, whiskies, etc.)

This year we picked four very interesting assortment of pumpkin ales including Half Full Brewery Pumpkin Ale, Coney Island, Dogfish Head and Two Roads Brewery Roadsmary’s Baby. The good news is that all of these seasonal beers are delicious in their own way, but which one’s did we like best and why? You’ll find out.

Monster Men Ep. 108: Gene Wilder Tribute and “The Scream Effect”

0
 
This episode of Monster Men is dedicated to the legendary Gene Wilder, a comic genius and all-around beloved figure. When we heard the sad news of his passing, we had no choice but to sit down and reflect on his amazing career and all of the joy he brought us over the years. His filmography is amazing. He has been is some of the greatest and most popular movies of all time, including probably the greatest horror-comedy of all time, Young Frankenstein. Of course, he will truly live forever as Willie Wonka, a character that is both lovable and kind of terrifying at the same time. He and Mel Brooks also collaborated on another all-time classic, Blazing Saddles, but the list of hits does not stop there. Let’s not forget Silver Streak, The Producers, Stir Crazy, See No Evil, Hear No Evil and many more.

Then we move onto the main topic of the day… The Scream Effect. The movie Scream may have a large following and is credited for being a groundbreaking film, however we feel it paved the way for a whole generation of poor horror movies. You may agree with us, you may think we’re crazy. Either one is fine with us. We’re pretty sure you’ll get a few laughs. Check it out and let us know what you think.

Horror Movie Roundup

Hunter here. As promised, I’ve been watching at least 1 horror flick a day all October long. I’m a little over 40 movies coming into the home stretch. Big shout out to James Herbert, Jason Brant, Anthony Rivas, Spence Dunnings, Ben C. Smith and so many others who have participated in the Horrortober madness!

With just a few days to go, I’m going to wrap myself around Halloween, The Funhouse, The Haunting and Friday the 13th. I thought I’d share some of the quick recaps and ratings (my bizarre 1 of 9 tana leaves, for you Mummy fans) of some of the movie’s I’ve watched so far. Maybe you’ll sneak one in before Halloween.

TRICK R TREAT. The gateway drug for horror nubies. Creepshow’s red headed stepchild. 7 of 9 tana leaves.

Got my monster on last night. CLOVERFIELD. Lovecraft devours NY. Love it. 8 of 9 tana leaves.

THE TAKING OF DEBORAH LOGAN – possession but on a WTF scale. 7 of 9 tana leaves.

MOTEL HELL – best damned smoked meats in the county! Love this flick. 8 of 9 tana leaves.
