New Jersey Myths and Monsters with Tim Meyer

0

The Monster Men are happy to welcome author Tim Meyer to the show as he takes us on a journey to the creepy side of New Jersey. Tim is a long time friend of the show and one hell of a writer. We are so happy to finally have him on.

To help celebrate the release of Hunter’s new book, THE JERSEY DEVIL, Tim and Hunter recently co-hosted a book-signing event in a microbrewery in the Pine Barrens of New Jersey. It does not get much cooler than that. This got us thinking that the Garden State probably deserved a show dedicated to all of it’s bizarre legends and monsters. And who better to guide us than Tim?

Tim Meyer has an impressive body of work, which you should check out as soon a you can. His books include the short story collection, “Worlds Between My Teeth” as well as novels like IN THE HOUSE OF MIRRORS, LESS THAN HUMAN, THE THIN VEIL, the SUNFALL series and the DEMON BLOOD series.

Creep, Unfriended and More

0

On this episode of Monster Men we review three horror movies and a horror podcast. Two of the movies are now available on Netflix, CREEP and THE LAST DAYS ON MARS. Both are worth a look. You have to see CREEP to believe it. It’s odd, weird and entertaining… in a creepy way. We also review the social media-centric “found footage” movie, UNFRIENDED.

We also give a shout out to Bloody Good Horror, one of our favorite horror podcasts.
