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.

0

It’s Halloween time again, but times have changed and so must we. Thanks to the pandemic, Halloween will look a little different this year, and so does our Halloween episode. We have done it remotely, as is the case with most things in 2020… but that does not stop us from having fun. This time we discuss and celebrate the horror movies 1978, the year the John Carpenter’s Halloween came out. It was quite a year for the genre. Plus, throughout the conversation we talk about some of the ways you can enjoy Halloween while still staying safe.

So, pull up some candy corn and join us as we celebrate our favorite holiday. And don’t forget to get yourself a Monster Men shirt, hoodie or mug at our TeePublic store. Go to http://tee.pub/lic/S9-0-iRSDP8 and don’t forget to post a pic and tag us once you have your swag.

The Paul Lynde Halloween Special – Monster Men Ep: 160

0

In this knee-slapper of an episode, the Monster Men take the center square for the win. What better way to start Horrortober than a trip back to that magical era where every star had their own variety show? And what better show to unearth than the Paul Lynde Halloween Special from 1976? It’s a cavalcade of stars surrounding the master comic who looked like someone had a gun to his head from start to finish. The jokes may fall flatter than Jack and Hunter’s ass cheeks, but the unintentional humor is hysterical. Come join Paul and his witchy friends as they’re joined by the likes of Florence Henderson, Betty White, Pinky Tuscadero, Tim Conway and…wait for it…KISS (who perform 3 songs because we guess the writers ran out of corny jokes)!

Hunter also reviews a fun Halloween read, Creature Feature, by Steven Paul Leiva (you can get it on Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/Creature-Featu…) and Jack recommends – Monster Carnival, an anthology of classic and rare tales of horror collected and edited by William P. Simmons. Find more at https://twitter.com/SimmonsOfNight.
