In our first part of our Sounds of Horror series we're talking about movie music. John Carpenter is back to score Halloween, and records and CDs are outselling music downloads, so it's a great time to talk about movie scores. We talk about some favorite director/musician combinations and the origins of putting music to film.
It's Mindy's favorite time of year! We assemble our Save Horror Madness brackets for our annual contest with Women in Caskets, Miskatonic Musings, and Tab & Jacob of Test Pattern. We tried to mix horror favorites with good sense, and some coin flipping. Have a look--have a listen--vote yourself on Twitter and Facebook and wish us luck!

With our eyes on the sky we explore the field of UFOs! We talk old and new declassified material and phenomena. To close out, we talk two classic alien abduction movies: Communion (1989) and Fire in the Sky (1993). And the history of probings!
We bring you stories of police and the darkness - when evil meets the law! We talk some early origins of detectives in fiction and 3 movies that pit police vs bad. Starting with Scott Derrickson's exorcist cop thriller, Deliver Us From Evil (2014), the 80s classic Maniac Cop (1988), and the wildly under-appreciated Fallen (1998) with Denzel Washington.
We're back! Joined by our good friend and fellow horror fan, Tony (@flirtaciousboi), we cover a provocative cross section of mid-2000s horror remakes. Starting with Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003), then Jaume Collet-Serra's House of Wax (2005), and finish out with Alexandre Aja's extreme take on The Hills Have Eyes (2006).
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
