HMN Podcast Best of Year 1

Today is the one year anniversary of Horror Movie Night, and what better way to celebrate than to frankenstein some of the best moments from past year into a supercut of embarrassment, drunkenness and awkward shouting?! If you're new to the podcast, this is your chance to learn the inside jokes and strange mannerisms of your hosts without slogging through 50 episodes. Sit back, crack a cold one and assume the position - it's Horror Movie Night's first bday!

Retroactive Bonus Episodes


Retroactive Episode 9: Behind the Mask - Rise of Leslie Vernon

Back in 2012 Matt started Reddit Horror Club with his friend Miguel. On their 10th episode they had a man named Scott Roger on to discuss Behind the Mask: the Rise of Leslie Vernon and a friendship for life was born!

There is no truer "Horror Movie Night" origin story than this one!


Retroactive Episode 8: Frankenstein's Army (2013)

"There's no way they could do back-to-back Nazi zombie movie episodes....right?" WRONG. Get your surgical equipment and bullshit swastika armband back out, because the guys at HMN have another Nazi zombie flick to discuss this week, with a retroactive look back at 2013's surprisingly not terrible Frankenstein's Army. If you're like us (well, Matt and Scott, at least), then you spent a good chunk of your prepubescent days splattering Hitler-loving monsters in the classic PC shooter Wolfenstein 3-D. This film is basically that, but with better graphics. You're either going to enjoy it or be bored out of your skull, so no further explanation is necessary here. Someone get Ron Perlman on the phone and see if he wants to come bust some goose-stepping ghouls on this week's (retroactive) episode of Horror Movie Night!


Retroactive Episode 7: Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead (2014)

It's the middle of the summer, so let's cool off with a movie about partially-thawed Nazi zombies. You read that right, we actually at one time discussed Dead Snow 2: Red vs Dead (2014) and dug it out of its frosty tomb for a retroactive episode. We don't remember much about this conversation, or the movie for that matter, but rest assured, we had some stuff to complain about as always. Get ready to do it with a dead girl while enjoying the 2-packs-a-day stylings of Bonnie Tyler on this retroactive episode of Horror Movie Night!


Retroactive Episode 6: Phantom of the Paradise (1974)

This week, the guys are digging an oldie but goodie out of the archives and watching from the rafters as their past selves discuss Brian De Palma's inimitable 1974 rock opera Phantom of the Paradise! If you've followed the show in any capacity, odds are you've heard this film brought up at least once, and here is the seed of HMN's collective obsession. Fall in love with Plain Jane, get your teeth knocked out, your voicebox smashed and your face horribly disfigured by a record press, then try to foil your abuser's sexy plot on this week's retroactive episode of Horror Movie Night!


Retroactive Episode 5: Horns (2013)

Well folks, it's time to dredge up the sins of the past with another retroactive episode of Horror Movie Night. This one takes us back to Stephen King's, er, Joe Hill's cinematically adapted (and eviscerated) Horns. Harry Potter fans died inside just about as much as we did while watching this one, and our fury is similar in scope and depth as Daniel Heathcliff's character here, who one day wakes up with hard protrusions he can't explain. Sounds a lot like every morning for the HMN guys...


Retroactive Episode 4: Alligator (1980)

Let's travel back to the gilded age of big hair, clock radio bombs and world-class pillow talk... no, not the 1980s, just the time we talked about 1980s killer pet flick ALLIGATOR! We've referenced this discussion enough that it finally warrants its own retroactive episode. Matt's love of this movie (and fear of dressing up as a pirate to pool parties) is infectious and his lines are smooth. Give it up on your childhood bed for this retroactive episode of Horror Movie Night!


Retroactive Episode 3: Red, White & Blue (2010)

Hopefully you've bathed recently, because this film is going to make you feel dirty. A while back, the boys discussed Red White & Blue with guest picker Aubrie, and for once, Scott wasn't the bad cop! You're going to need your revenge served up with a heaping dose of penicillin - it's Horror Movie Night!


Retroactive Episode 2: Puppet Master III: Toulon's Revenge (1991)

In our second Retroactive Bonus Episode, we take you back to the magical night that Matt and Scott hung out in person and called Adam to discuss leech vomit, puppet powers, Toulon’s terrible anniversary gifts, and sexy Nazis… That’s right, we discussed 1991’s Full Moon release Puppet Master III: Toulon’s Revenge! Listen for the origin of most of our current in-jokes, details on Matt’s kill room, and what Scott’s wife sees every time he watches HMN picks.

House 1977 Poster

Retroactive Episode 1: Hausu (1977)

In our first Retroactive Bonus Episode we travel back to this past winter when we had to discuss Hausu (aka House from 1977) for Reddit Horror Club. Adam precedes to tell us a non-fiction story of taking a friend to see Hausu in a theater. I hope you all enjoy it!

Episode 6: BASEketball

Soundtracking is back and we're ready to Psych you out this month talking about the pop punk and ska heavy BASEketball Soundtrack. Is Take on Me really the greatest pop punk cover song?

I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997)

Episode 5: I Know What You Did Last Summer

Soundtracking is back with a 4th of July classic. Last year we discussed the film, now it's time to talk the music! Scott and Matt breakdown track by track the grunge and metal and sneaker pimps inspired tracks that make up this genre covering collection.


Episode 4: Idle Hands

You had to know this was coming after Episode 148. We couldn't let a full discussion of Idle Hands go by without an in-depth conversation about the music from its OST! We get misty-eyed remembering some of the great and forgotten pop punk and alt bands of the late 90s, and argue about which songs really didn't deserve slots on the soundtrack while Rob fuckin Halford didn't make the cut. Time to chill with Mighty Joe Bong and the HMN crew on another bonus episode of Soundtracking!


Episode 3: Dracula 2000

Nu metal sucks, but nu metal + vampires?? That's some pornstar oral prowess in that kind of power couple. On our third installment of Soundtracking, we drain the life from the most mediocre metal to hit the 1999 Billboard charts and fondly remember our misspent youth wearing Trapp Pants, wallet chains and ball bearing necklaces with our good buddy Stephen of Analog Jones and the Temple of Film. Scott may or may not have confused Monster Magnet and Powerman 5000 - you'll have to listen and find out!


Episode 2: Empire Records

Last Halloween's discussion of Goosebumps S1E1 was a low bar to clear, so... you're welcome, AYAOTD.
