We meet the amazing Felissa Rose from Sleepaway Camp and sit in on Hunters Bigfoot in the Bronx presentation, featuring the big guy himself.

The time on Monster Men, we welcome our pals Chad Lutzke and Jeremiah Bannister from the PaleoCheeze Podcast. Chad, like us, is a crusty horror veteran and he often watches horror movies with Jeremiah, who has hardly seen anything scary on the silver screen. It’s always a lot of fun.
We’ve invited them to watch and compare two legendary horror movies; The Fly, starring Vincent Price from 1958 and the remake with from 1986, directed by David Cronenberg and starring Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis.
Talk about a whirlwind! We welcome Janine Pipe, horror reviewer, author, editor, blogger, podcaster and everything in between. In just one year, Janine has been a force of nature in the horror genre, and this is only the beginning. We talk about how she came to be a reviewer, her past life as a copper, upcoming writing projects and so much more. If you dream of breaking into the world of horror, you need to listen to Janine’s story. Aside from her reviews in Scream Magazine and Night Worms and editing for Kandisha Press, you can find her at :
You might want to check this episode out with the lights on. The Monster Men were thrilled to have Glenn Laycock on the show. Glenn is the director of T.O.P.S. (The Ontario Paranormal Society York Region Chapter), and has been a paranormal investigator for five years. He’s lived in a haunted home for over a decade and was even featured on Paranormal Survivor. Glenn talks about some of his most chilling investigations, what it’s like to be on TV, the backstory behind his haunted house, ghost hunting equipment and why graveyards are not the best place to seek the paranormal.
Talk about prolific! Author Armand Rosamilia has written more books than most people have owned underwear! Having navigated a successful career of traditional and self-publishing, we pin the man himself down to give us some tips on how to succeed as a self-published author.
Before we dig into that, we discuss obscure Marvel titles that would make great movies and then talk about his latest book, a collection of his short stories titled Make Pretend: The Complete Short Fiction of Armand Rosamilia.
Welcome to a truly fascinating episode of Monster Men. Or should we say, Magick Men? This week we welcome our buddy Morgan who tells us about his in journey into the world of ceremonial magic and the occult. With years of study and experience, he has seen a lot of amazing things and learned a lot along the way. It’s intriguing and a bit mind-blowing. If you are curious about real-life magic and the occult, this is a great place to start.
The Monster Men welcome back the man himself, author Terry M West, to the show. Some people say that we are living in the new golden age of horror movies. Well, the belt holder for the decade of the BEST horror made for TV movies was, is and always will be the 70s. Jack, Hunter and Terry wax poetic over a cavalcade of 70s horror classics like The Night Stalker, Trilogy of Terror, Duel, and dozens of other found and hidden gems that hit the airwaves during a presidential resignation, gas crisis, hostage crisis, and overall identity crisis. Build your to-watch list and let us know your own personal favorites.
IT FOLLOWS. It’s just one of those movies, either you love it, or you hate it. Some considered a modern horror masterpiece and others want their 1h and 40 minutes back. On this episode of Monster Men we welcome author JG Faherty for a good, old fashioned throw-down on this polarizing film. JG is not shy and he knows his stuff, so this is sure to be a great debate.
JG Faherty is a Multiple Bram Stoker Award and Thriller Award Nominated Author of THE CURE, CARNIVAL OF FEAR, CASTLE BY THE SEA, WINTERWOOD, LEGACY, GHOSTS OF CORONADO BAY, THE BURNING TIME, THE COLD SPOT, CEMETERY CLUB, SINS OF THE FATHER, HELLRIDER, HOUSES OF THE UNHOLY, THE CURE and THE BURNING TIME.
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!
