Bon Appetit, boys and ghouls! In keeping with our tradition of celebrating Halloween with a Pumpkin Ale episode, we present our Halloween Extravaganza. This year we are pair an odd assortment of October themed alcoholic drinks with an equally quirky array of Fall flavored foods. All while we pair an lesser known horror movie with an old favorite.
Some things on the menu include pumpkin whisky & soda, toasted marshmallow seltzer, pumpkin pasta, Halloween Peeps and Monster Mash cereal.
You may call it Octoberfest, but around here we call it Horrortoberfest.

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.
Here’s a quick teaser for our unholy Thanksgiving Banquet coming later this week. We’ll be sampling many disgusting foods… but luckily we’ll be washing them down with some delicious pumpkin ales. Full episode will drop before Thanksgiving.

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.
Let’s raise our glasses and propose a toast to our favorite holiday, Halloween! To celebrate, we have gathered an assortment of pumpkins ales to sample while tell some stories about the various horror conventions we’ve attend over the years.
So pull up a seat grab a glass and join us for some pumpkin ales and tall tales.
Spring is here! The weather is warming up and the trees are blooming. What better time to unleash the Antarctic Ice Beasts upon the world? Antarctic Ice Beasts is the latest novel from Hunter Shea and it’s the main topic on this episode of Monster Men.
Here’s the synopsis:
The South Pole in winter is one of the deadliest places on Earth. The seven person crew of the US Freedom Base lives alone in months of utter darkness with no hope of help or rescue. A freak storm batters the walls and threatens to expose them to the deadly cold. All they can do is wait…and pray.
The ground quakes. An alien screech rips through the night. There’s something, or someone, lurking outside. Fists bang on the walls. Each tiny crack in the base spells death by hypothermia. Untold horrors have come to Freedom Base…and they want in!
The Monster Men are back and this time we decided to pick a year and go through the list of horror movies released and offer our thoughts, memories, and comments on the ones the jump out at us. Come with us on a trip down the memory lane of horror.
