Friends, with it being February the 14th, it seemed the perfect time to discuss My Bloody Valentine. Now granted the Projectionist and I haven’t resurrected the Saturday Frights Podcast. But we did in fact decided to put together a special – a vidcast of sorts. Concerning the 1981 Canadian slasher film, the classic My Bloody Valentine!
In the vidcast, which runs about fifteen minutes. I share not just some of the elements I love most about the movie. Additionally I must admit that this is in fact probably my favorite film in the slasher genre. But furthermore the Projectionist and I also give a few fun facts about the film itself. As well as the 2009 remake by Lionsgate – My Blood Valentine 3D.
With this in mind, I do feel I should admit this isn’t going to be like the podcast. At no point do I go into the synopsis of the film itself. On the other hand we do bring up the soundtrack, in particular the memorable Ballad of Harry Warden. Which if you count yourself as fan, the soundtrack is available at Waxwork Records!

So when you get a moment of free time, check out the vidcast. Perhaps the Projectionist and I will convince you that a horror movie is the perfect thing to watch today?
From the Projectionist and myself – we wish you all a very Happy Valentine’s Day!
Welcome to the third Halloween Special for the Saturday Frights Podcast! What better way to celebrate a long night of festivities than listening to memories of slasher films?
This Halloween Special the Projectionist and I are joined by Doug McCoy, Allison Venezio, Daniel XIII, I See Robots, RetroArtBlog and the Retroist!
I think you will agree that this podcast is a relative Halloween-palooza! One that finds most of us transported to none other than Crimson Creek! Will we survive long enough to tell our thoughts on the slasher genre?
Listen and find out for yourself!

Happy February 14th! Like many of you I too have plans for a quiet evening with my significant other, sharing a nice meal together before heading home to prepare for the Valentine’s Day Dance at Valentine Bluffs. Just before the Wife and I head out the door as we don our gas masks and grab the pickaxes we keep in the umbrella stand…we always take a moment and listen to the wonderful Ballad of Harry Warden by John McDermott.
