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.

Monster Men Episode 98: On this episode of Monster Men we celebrate the latest novel by horror author and Monster Men co-host, Hunter Shea. This time Hunter brings us terror from the deep with his new book THEY RISE. Learn about the amazing ghost shark, the extremely creepy, real life fish that inspired the monsters in this tale.
We kick off the New Year with a super-sized episode of Monster Men to count down our lists of the best horror movies of 2015. It was a strong year for horror films and there were a lot of great movies to choose from. We unveil both Hunter and Jack’s lists, and since only three movies appeared on both of their lists, you actually get 23 movie reviews in this one show.
What were your favorites and what do you think of our picks? Let us know. You can read Jack’s picks here and Hunter’s picks here as well.
Movies covered include Hidden, Bone Tomahawk, Gravy, Spring, We Are Still Here, Let Us Prey, The Green Inferno, The Visit, He Never Died, It Follows, The Voices, What We Do in the Shadows, Ex Machina, Orb, Girl House, Almost Mercy, Wyrmwood, Deathgasm, Final Girls, Goodnight Mommy and Creep.
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.
