Look! Up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a… a tic tac! This is the episode Hunter has been waiting for since the Monster Men crawled out of the muck and into the interwebs. Join us as we talk UFOs (or as some call them now, UAPs) with one of the world’s leading Ufologists, Ryan Sprague, the author of Somewhere in the Skies and host of the podcast of the very same name. We’re talking about government disclosure, real life encounters, horror at a drive-in, terrifying abductions and more. Trust us. After this one, you’ll all keep your eyes on the skies!
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.
Beware the moon! This week we welcome Michelle Garza to the podcast. Michelle alongside her twin sister, Melissa Lason, are better known as The Sisters of Slaughter, authors of some great horror, science fiction and dark fantasy. This week we discuss a subject that’s near and dear to Michelle; werewolves. Naturally we cover many of the staples of the genre including The Wolfman, An American Werewolf in London, The Howling, Dog Soldiers, Ginger Snaps and more. You’ll be howling at the moon by the end of this one.
Be sure to check out the books by the Sisters of Slaughter. Their novel, MAYAN BLUE, was nominated for a Bram Stoker Award and their work has been featured in anthologies such as FRESH MEAT by Sinister Grin Press, WISHFUL THINKING by Fireside Press and WIDOWMAKERS a benefit anthology of dark fiction.
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.
