The Horror Geeks Launch Online Version of Their Show

Published

on

The Horror Geeks

Earlier this year we brought you the first word on horror-comedy television show “The Horror Geeks,” which is currently being actively shopped to various networks, and now we bring you the first word on the new media version of the show, titled “The Horror Geekcast.”

Starring show creator Barry Morgan and “The Horror Geeks” hosts Andrew Maiorano, Sarah Nicklin (The Basement, Nun of That), and Jose Prendes, as well as a cast of revolving guest stars, “The Horror Geekcast” is a video podcast devoted to the horror genre. Currently four episodes are available, with weekly episodes starting September 12th.

“While we play the waiting game, which can be excruciating, I decided that we shouldn’t just lay back and cross our fingers, waiting for something to happen,” Morgan explained. “So I got the team together, and we decided to start doing a video podcast. In essence, it’s a stripped down version of our television show that allows us to discuss our favorite subject, horror movies, as well as get our material out to the masses.”

Don’t be fooled by the word “podcast,” though. This is unlike anything else that’s out there right now. Instead of the typical “talking heads” format, Morgan and his team utilize a multi-cam setup and use a variety of cut-aways and skits to keep the show flowing at a bloody and comedic pace.

“When we decided to do a podcast, I didn’t want the show to be like every other video podcast,” Morgan added. “Talking head shows are fine, and I don’t have anything against them, but I wanted to up the bar and give the series more of a variety show feel. I also wanted to add some episodic elements and give the hosts character arcs. For example, I start a relationship with a succubus, Andy disappears into another dimension, and our horror news broadcaster has to deal with an overbearing Pamela Voorhees, who believes her son Jason has been wrongly accused of murder. We also have a running gag about us in ‘real life’ trying to get the TV show picked up.”

Morgan and team have also started a Patreon account. Subscribers can access the “Bloody Bonus” from each episode – a more free-form discussion from the hosts. Other rewards include extended takes, outtakes, commentary tracks, full episodes only available to Patreon subscribers, and a personal thank you from Mrs. Voorhees. You can visit their Patreon page here!

Episodes of “The Horror Geekcast” are available here for viewing! For more, visit “The Horror Geeks” on Facebook here, on Twitter here, and on Instagram here.

Thelma Is Fantastic and Now You Can Watch the Opening Scene

Published

on

One of this year’s most beautiful and subdued horror films is Joachim Trier’s Thelma (review), which opens in Los Angeles tonight. To give you a bit of what the film is like, The Orchard have released the opening scene, which shows a man and his daughter hunting in the bleak Norwegian winter. When they come across a young deer, the true intentions of this trip become apparent…

Having seen Thelma, I can tell you that it’s truly something special. It’s a slow burn, to be certain, but it plays out gorgeously, resulting in a film that has yet to leave my mind.

Locations and tickets for Thelma can be found here.

Synopsis:
Thelma, a shy young student, has just left her religious family in a small town on the west coast of Norway to study at a university in Oslo. While at the library one day, she experiences a violent, unexpected seizure. Soon after, she finds herself intensely drawn toward Anja, a beautiful young student who reciprocates Thelma’s powerful attraction. As the semester continues, Thelma becomes increasingly overwhelmed by her intense feelings for Anja – feelings she doesn’t dare acknowledge, even to herself – while at the same time experiencing even more extreme seizures. As it becomes clearer that the seizures are a symptom of inexplicable, often dangerous, supernatural abilities, Thelma is confronted with tragic secrets of her past, and the terrifying implications of her powers.
