Mark and Jerry return to the HMPod with Episode #108, featuring Haunting in Connecticut, uh, Georgia and Wes Craven Part 2 !

Maestro Craven creates an urban legend and a stinker

Hello to all those who have stumbled upon this page believing this website is connected with the garish if profitable site, TheMightySpluttBuilding. There is no connection whatsoever. We here at The Horror Movie Show only talk about wholesome subjects. Thank you.

There’s gore aplenty in worthwhile The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia. Arguably the stupidist title our hosts Mark and Jerry have ever heard, this 2013 flick is one of those rare sequels that is better than the original. Moving to a different state was the smartest move these moviemakers made.

…It was 1984. The biggest pop hit of that year was Seasons in the Sun by Mr. Terry Jacks. Those laconic words still ring true: “We ate dogs, we ate cats, we ate mice & we ate rats. But the best of the bunch was that skunk we ate for lunch.” In October, newly knighted Sir Peter Lorre revealed he actually was a ghoul. And scientists discovered that drains go somewhere.

This was the year horror dreamboat Wes Craven released A Nightmare on Elm Street. What can one say about this flick? Quite a lot, it seems. An industry is righteously born.

Following that, our hobbled hosts discuss the next few movies from director Craven. In order: Voodoo death-cult science in The Serpent and the Rainbow (1988), zany Shocker (1989), another classic, The People Under the Stairs (1991) is one of the funniest horror movies made; and Eddie Murphy‘s three-headed monster, A Vampire in Brooklyn (1995). One more chapter to come in our Wes Craven retrospective, next week. Now, see if you can fit your head through the peephole.
