Saturday Frights Podcast Ep. 66 (The Odds)

When you are discussing some of the better episodes of Tales from the Darkside, the odds are good that The Odds will be at the top of that list. Which is of course why the Projectionist and myself chose it discuss on this latest Saturday Frights podcast!

On this show we will discuss the full synopsis for The Odds. As well as the rather amazing cast featured in the 1984 episode. Such as the likes of Danny Aiello (Moonstruck) and Tom Noonan (The Monster Squad) to start with. Of course we talk a bit about the other cast and crew who helped to make The Odds such a memorable episode.

If you haven’t had the pleasure of watching The Odds. In a nutshell it concerns a bookie who has taken great pleasure in never refusing a bet. However that personal creed will be put to the test thanks to a visit from the Darkside.

My Bloody Valentine - Saturday Frights

Saturday Frights Vidcast: My Bloody Valentine (1981)

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!

Footprints

Sinister Tales of Terror Ep. 15 (Footprints)

Hello there, dear listeners. It has come time once more to venture down into the Vault for one of my Sinister Tales of Terror! I am unaware of how the weather might be treating you. However here at the Vault there is a rather nasty snow storm brewing. Which is why I have chosen a tale that I call ‘Footprints’.

With such delightfully horrid weather howling outside these walls. I can assure the best place to be as a matter of fact is beside myself. In front of the roaring fire. Moreover it might even chase away the chills of the story I have to share with you today.

Footprints is a true tale, an incident that occurred in Haddonfield. Many, many years ago during a similar snow storm. In fact we have John Ives to thank for sending me an electronic missive, requesting such a tale.

I want to take a moment and thank The Retroist once again for that charming, moreover vintage artwork for the broadcast. I must assume that he was becoming rather embarrassed over the previous artwork, eh? It is not as if Victor Sage can deliver a radio broadcast properly. To say nothing of supplying the appropriate artwork for my radio program, eh? Heh, heh.

Now I beg of you to extinguish your electric lights. Lean in closer to the soothing glow of your personal radio. As I begin this broadcast for my Sinister Tales of Terror…

Covers

Sinister Tales of Terror Ep. 14 (Covers)

Hello there, dear listeners. It has come time once more to venture down into the Vault for one of my Sinister Tales of Terror! I realize that many of you that listen to my radio broadcasts might in fact do so before bed. So from my tome for this week I have selected “Covers” as the tale to tantalize or terrorize you with.

We have a rather fetching new addition to the vault. It is as a matter of fact the reason I had to cancel the last broadcast. I was far too busy constructing a fireplace. To better read from my collection of stories of course.
Covers

This story was submitted by Warren McCloud of Goodland, Florida . Furthermore this tale is presented in a different style than our other offerings. Think of it as my having the pleasure of whispering sweet nothings in your ear. Heh. Regardless of the change you can be rest assured that it still will give you frights.

This also marks a return to a shorter broadcast. McCloud’s tale gets straight to the point. Like a dagger to the heart, eh?

I want to take a moment and thank The Retroist once again for that charming, moreover vintage artwork for the broadcast. I naturally must assume that he was mortified by the ‘art’ that Victor was creating for the radio show.

Now I beg of you to extinguish your electric lights. Lean in closer to the soothing glow of your personal radio. As I begin this broadcast for my Sinister Tales of Terror…

Sinister Tales of Terror Ep. 13 (The Hidebehinds)

Hello there, dear listeners. It has come time once more to venture down into the Vault for one of my Sinister Tales of Terror! I realize that many of you that are hearing my broadcasts are nature lovers. I felt for this episode The Hidebehinds would fit the bill.

In addition to the story, I have included a little local flavor, no extra charge of course. I am nothing if not committed to providing you loyal fright fanatics your moneys worth. Heh, heh, heh.

Our offering for this go around was submitted by Linda Dunsmore. As a matter of fact you should look on The Hidebehinds as a cautionary tale. Furthermore I do cherish the thought that you might listen to this broadcast while out for a walk. Heh.

In addition, much like last week’s broadcast from the Vault. Our story is a little longer than some of the previous tales. I am well aware that many of you prefer the quick touch of fear or you like to get straight to the point. I remind you that I am more than willing to share your very own scary story on the air. You need merely contact me at the Facebooks. Projectionist at the Haunted Drive-In.

By the way, did you notice we have a new bit of art for the show? This was donated to use by none other than The Retroist himself. Perhaps he grew tired of that…doodle…that Victor came up with, eh?

Finally, I believe you will be able to find my broadcasts on the iTunes any day now. It has been submitted to the iTunes Radio Network. Sage informs me that it is being reviewed…to be sure that it is not too frightening for listeners I have no doubt!

Now I beg of you to extinguish your electric lights. Lean in closer to the soothing glow of your personal radio. As I begin this broadcast for my Sinister Tales of Terror…
