Midwest Monsters Episode 107 - A Tribute to George A. Romero

January 1, 2018

As we say hello to a new year, we say goodbye to a legend. George A. Romero was many things: a visionary, a rebel, independent, intelligent, warm, loyal and so much more; but equally as important, he was loved. He was loved deeply by his family, friends and his fans. He has inspired generation after generation, not only with social commentary but also with an independent filmmaker mythos. His mark left is undeniable and his presence in the horror community is severely missed already. George A. Romero once said “If I fail, the film industry writes me off as another statistic. If I succeed, they pay me a million bucks to fly out to Hollywood and fart.” Thankfully for all of us, George always kept that in mind and made what he wanted to make. Join us as we celebrate the career of one of our favorite filmmakers. The show is available now on iTunes, podbean, mixcloud and our blog. We hope you enjoy the show and Happy New Year!

Midwest Monsters Episode 103 - Horror Through the Year

November 2, 2017

Like many of you, most of us on the show love seasonal and themed viewings. Whether it’s a fictional date in a film or a certain time of year that generates feelings that align with a perfectly timed viewing, it always adds more to the experience. We’ve covered some seasons (Winter and Summer), we’ve covered elements (atmosphere and rules), we’ve covered holidays (Halloween, Christmas) but what about the rest of the year? Sure heading to Haddonfield on Halloween or Crystal Lake for some camping, is always fun; but so is heading to Amity Island for the 4th of July or down into South Texas in mid-August! On this episode we run through the calendar year filling in the gaps we haven’t covered yet! Available now on iTunes, Podbean, Mixcloud and our blog. We hope you enjoy the show!

Midwest Monsters Episode 100 - The “A Nightmare on Elm Street” Franchise: A Revisit Special

September 15, 2017

We went back to Haddonfield and Camp Crystal Lake, so naturally it’s time to return to Springwood for our 100TH EPISODE! We are very excited, not only to reach triple digit shows but also to examine this franchise again. Some of the Grizz and I’s opinion were contested by others, including our three co-hosts joining this time around. As previously performed, we cover each entry with reassessments from the Grizz and Wagstaff as well as opinions from Vinny, Todd and Rybones. It has been quite a fun ride getting here with you all and this episode is no exception as we had such a fun time recording. Sure, it got a little heated at times – but passionate fandom will do that. Thank you for riding with us this far. We sincerely appreciate your support. Now go write us a review on iTunes! We hope you enjoy the show which is now available on iTunes, podbean, mixcloud and our blog.
