Midwest Monsters Episode 98 - The Halloween Franchise: A Revisit Special

August 15, 2017

As we round the corner towards our 100th episode milestone, we are taking some time to revisit some old friends! Hint – friends that we all know by their first name <wink wink>. As fans, our relationships with films change over time from different experiences, repeat viewings and our very own constantly changing perspectives. So we thought it would be fun to take a trip back to some of the most beloved horror franchises of our generation, not only to re-evaluate and weigh against our previous opinions on earlier episodes, but also to lend an opportunity for our three newer co-hosts, who weren’t there then, to share their thoughts. We hope you have at least half as much fun listening, as we did recording them! Now available on iTunes, podbean, mixcloud and our blog.

Midwest Monsters Episode 96 - The Wicker Films

July 16, 2017

"Do sit down, Sergeant. Shocks are so much better absorbed with the knees bent." We couldn't agree more so have a seat and join us we take a look at Robin Hardy's 1973 cult-classic "The Wicker Man", its 2006 remake of the same name and Hardy's 2011 sequel "The Wicker Tree". I'll give you a hint, we think one is much better than the other two <wink wink>. Available now on iTunes, podbean, mixcloud and our blog. We hope you enjoy the show!

Midwest Monsters Episode 89 - Modern Horror II (April Fool’s 2017 Special)

April 1, 2017

We let the cat out of the bag last year when we eluded to actually respecting the duds that we covered, for April Fool’s Day. This year we wont seek to fool you but it is quite clear that we didn’t learn that the joke is actually on us for sitting through these. Will this be the last time we do this to ourselves for AFD? Most likely- but this episode is still worth a listen as we cover 4 ridiculous films (Halloweed, Bad Milo, Return of the Killer Tomatoes and Shark Exorcist), accompanied with quite a few laughs and some surprising support at times. Available on iTunes, podbean, mixcloud and our blog. We hope you find enjoyment in the show (hopefully more than we did watching these films)!
