The High Five Podcast Episode 34 – It’s All Connected Part 4

With this week’s episode we’re back on the It’s All Connected trail. If you want to follow the threads from the beginning you can go back and listen to episodes 29, 31 and 33! This batch turned out to be a real wild ride through late 80s/early 90s horror! Oh, and here’s one more connection I forgot to mention: Bruce Glover is in both Night Of The Scarecrow and one of the movies-within-a-movie in Popcorn! Also, it’s Donald Pleasance in Prince Of Darkness, not Sutherland.

If you’re curious about my earlier thoughts on some of these movies, you can check out my reviews of The Stepfather, Leatherface and Prince Of Darkness. During the episode, I also mentioned past installments like 20 – Excellent 80s Disc 12 (Scarecrows) and 24 – Weird Canadian Horror (Alan Ormsby).

The High Five Video – Spooky Brave & The Bold Team-Ups

I tried something different this week and put together a video based on The High Five Episode 32 – Spooky Brave And The Bold Team-Ups! It was a lot of fun…and a lot of work, but it looks nice! I have a few ideas for other episodes to do this with to expand on more visual topics.

The High Five Podcast Episode 30 – The Works Of Grady Hendrix!

On this week’s episode, I discuss my recent journey making may way through most of author Grady Hendrix’s fantastic horror novels. I’m mainly covering Horrorstor, Paperbacks From Hell, My Best Friend’s Exorcism, The Southern Book Club’s Guide To Slaying Vampires, We Sold Our Souls and just a bit about The Final Girl Support Group!

For what it’s worth, I think I realized why some might not connect to We Sold Our Souls as much. I think it’s because there’s no friendship at the heart of the story like there is in most of the other ones. This also explains why it feels more akin to HorrorStor to me because Amy’s in a similar boat.

If you’re interested, I wrote a bit about HorrorStor here and covered Paperbacks From Hell here.

On this week’s episode, I let you into the wonderful world of It’s All Connected 2021, the horror film project I do wherein each movie is connected to the previous in some way! I’ve already gone through six flicks and it’s only August, so hopefully this will be the best year yet! If you’re curious about last year’s It’s All Connected, you can find all the links here!

If you’re curious, here‘s my review of The Dead Zone book from several years back.

The High Five Podcast Episode 28 – Super Movies Not Based On Comics

On this week’s episode, I’m running down a quintet of action movies that feel like comic book movies, but without existing source material. I had a great time putting this list together and a lot of fun watching these movies. I hope you do too!

Of all of these, I’ve written about the Universal Soldier franchise the most including the original, The Return and Day Of Reckoning.
