Episode 43: Jersey Ghouls vs Tales From The Crypt

Hello Kiddies! This week the Ghouls watched Demon Knight and Bordello of Blood and were dying to talk about it.

We hope you join us this week because you know what they say: the morgue, the merrier!

Episode 42: Jersey Ghouls vs David Cronenberg

This week the Ghouls discuss yet another giant in the horror industry, David Cronenberg. We look at two of his films; Shivers and The Fly. It is body horror 101 this time around and not all of the Ghouls are up to the challenge. Can you watch the Brundle-Fly transformation with out turning away?

Episode 41: Jersey Ghouls vs 80’s Vampires

This week the Ghouls (and returning favorite, Matt Kelly) discuss two of the best vampire movies to come out of the 80’s: The Lost Boys and Fright Night. While we love both films, one definitely comes out on top as our collective favorite. And at the top of the show we ask the age old question: Who do you want to bite you? David (Kiefer Sutherland) or Jerry (Chris Sarandon)? Tune in - find out!

Episode 40: Jersey Ghouls vs Reboots

This week the Ghouls tackle two recent reboots: Evil Dead (2013) and Blair Witch (2016). With the two heavy hitters that these movies are based on, you might think they would come up against some criticism from our Ghouls. And for the most part, you would be right. Marissa called in some reinforcements, Nate had a compelling argument, and Jacki acted like an old person telling these new movies to “Get Off My Lawn!”

Episode 39: Jersey Ghouls vs Werewolves

Ahwoooo! This week the Ghouls get hairy discussing The Howling and Ginger Snaps. Our topics jump from social commentary to Rick Baker to gender roles to masturbation. Trust me, it all makes sense.

Will an alien bounty hunter look like your favorite rock star? Will you be ready to help save Satan’s Den? Check the toilets and clear the barn because this week the Ghouls are talkin’ tiny creatures with Ghoulies 2 and Critters!

Episode 37: Jersey Ghouls vs Rubber

This week the Ghouls take a recommendation from Jacki’s Uncle Ron and watch Rubber. This absurdist movie sparked a more serious and critical conversation than normal. What do you think of a tire that goes on a killing spree? Also, do you like sausages? *Our apologies this week for the audio issues! It seems that the episode was only picked up through Marissa’s microphone.

Episode 36: Jersey Ghouls vs The Garbage Pail Kids Movie

This week the Ghouls are joined by Stephen & Matt from the VHS podcast Analog Jones and the Temple of Film! Join us as we talk the art of puppetry, plot holes and we try to find out what Manzini really is the Captain of. This was obviously a Jacki pick -- did Marissa and Nate join in on the laughter or did they want to throw Jacki away with the movie? Special thanks to Stephen for the amazing custom graphic!

Episode 35: Jersey Ghouls vs Dario Argento

This week the Ghouls discuss movies by one of the greats in the horror genre, Dario Argento. We watched Demons and Deep Red and see where so many others have been influenced by Argento's movies. Don't forget you can also listen to our podcast on iTunes, GooglePlay, TuneIn and I Heart Radio! 

 

Episode 34: Jersey Ghouls vs Bad Moms

This week the Ghouls talk motherhood and murder. Are they good moms gone bad? Was the pressure being the perfect mom too much? Is this Marissa's future? Join us as we discuss Serial Mom and Dead Alive (Braindead).

Spike up your hair and shine the jewel in your bellybutton because the Ghouls are talking trolls! But unlike the toys of our childhood, these are out to kill you. We talk Troll Hunter and Troll 2 this week along with some questionable searches on Jacki's Google account. #nokinkshame

Joining the party this year is Matt (Horror Movie Night, Disneatos, Geekscape.net) Scott (Horror Movie Night) and Steve (Analog Jones and the Temple of Film). Listen as six podcasters fail to stay on topic, brainstorm about a new podcast idea, and learn a little bit about each other. So put on your party hat, grab a slice of cake and enjoy Night of the Demons or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and  Love the Boobs.

Episode 29: Jersey Ghouls vs. Religious Horror

This week the Ghouls take on two movies with a religious theme, Stigmata and Dracula 2000.
