Welcome back friends to the Saturday Frights Podcast! Each podcast my co-host, the Projectionist and I will discuss a particular horror movie or horror themed TV episode from the Retroist Vault. With the recent passing of Wes Craven we felt it would be appropriate to discuss one of his films, in this case we chose 1989’s “Shocker”. Our friends from Scream Factory also happen to be releasing a collector’s edition Blu-Ray today so you can go pick it up after listening to the podcast. On this episode I give a brief synopsis of the film and the Projectionist has made sure to bring along a few Drive-In audio goodies for your enjoyment.
The NEW ending music for the show is entitled “Twisted Toys”…suitable for working with the Projectionist and was provided by Tony Longworth, you can visit his site by clicking that link provided or hopping over to his Soundcloud Page!

Trek fan and digital artist, Rabittooth has mashed up two of my favorite TV shows, The X-Files and Star Trek in this “I Want To Believe” poster. The source image is a very large 5514×7000, so if you are interested in printing it out and making your own poster, I think that should have you covered.
From 1987 to 1991, Time-Life Books published a comprehensive series of books about Psuedo-science, mysticism and the occult called “Mysteries of the Unknown”. The series started with the very popular “Alien Encounters” and went on for an additional 32 volumes. After the first year of the series being published it would become the most successful series ever published by Time-Life and a must have for X-Files fans everywhere. Why did it sell so well? Check out this commercial:
Did you own any of these fun books? If not you can usually find them at a used book store or at a garage sale. I picked up a full set for only $5 at a local sale. Here is the pull listing of titles:
