On this years annual bonus Halloween Podcast we celebrate the life and career of Wes Craven.
No director has redefined horror as much as Wes Craven has. From his early work such as Last House on the Left and The Hills Have Eyes to the legendary Nightmare on Elm Street or the hugely successful Scream series. Wes Craven is the master of horror and he will be missed.
Welcome to the fourth episode of The Nothing Shocking Podcast. On this episode Bob went and covered Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare Haunted House as well as his concert. We also chat with Justin Murr, promoter of the upcoming Rock n Skull Festival which you can get tickets to right here: http://www.tickettailor.com/checkout/view-event/id/20089/chk/a11a
Our Albums of the Week are:
Glenn Tipton – Baptizm of Fire
Hanoi Rocks – Two Steps to the Move
The Steepwater Band – Grace and Melody
“Tomorrowland” came out this week and while successful wasn’t quite the box office juggernaut I was hoping for. The movie itself has a lot of promise but just falls short. Older kids to teenagers may enjoy the movie more so than adults, but it’s an incomplete movie that’s easy to pull a part. From a Madding Crowd nearly puts the podcast to sleep.
The remake of “The Poltergeist” came out this week as well and is one of the worst remakes thus far. They more or less just took the name and put it on a low rank modern PG-13 horror film. They tried to hard to be different from the original while not being original if that makes sense. It was more or less a money grab all around.
We asked our audience their top five 80’s Horror films of all time. “The Thing,” “The Shining,” “The Poltergiest,” “Evil Dead 1 & 2,” and “Nightmare on Elm Street” led the way while “They Live,” “Cannibal Holocaust,” “The Gate,” “Cujo” and “Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer” were mentioned as well.
Our Undisputed Classic was “The Poltergeist.” All three of us really enjoyed the movie. It’s definitely a classic. We debate the PG rating and whether Tobe Hooper gets enough credit for this classic.

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Podcast, a movie podcast. This week Star Trek came out…need I say more. Iron Man has been knocked out of the number one box office spot in it’s third week of release. Bob didn’t see it, instead he stayed home and watched The Texas Chainsaw Massacre sequel to the original not the remakes…if that makes any sense. He should have gone to Star Trek: Into Darkness
We also talk about six trailers this week.
