Paul Elard Cooley, Horror author and podcaster for Shadow Publications joins the show. In this edition, we discuss many aspects of the Horror film genre, including some specific titles that we like, and others we don't. This is the first half of the podcast. It's been divided into two parts, due to our original running time of over two hours!

00:02:22 - The great debate begins. Rob Zombie's version of Halloween and his work in general is discussed.
00:08:53 - The Evil Dead Trilogy comes up.
00:12:58 - John talks about the documentary, Halloween: 25 Years of Terror.
00:19:19 - Supernatural versus psychological.
00:26:07 - John makes a point to list off his positive opinions of the remake. Paul questions the swaying nature of nostalgia. The remake of Dawn of The Dead is discussed.
00:32:08 - The vampire craze is among us, and doesn't seem to be letting up anytime soon.
00:41:24 - The differences and similarities between horror films of today and those of old. The Saw franchise and the term, "torture porn" is dissected.
00:51:31 - Nothin' but love for the delightful, Julie Benz. It's brief, but there it is. :)
00:56:06 - If it's Halloween this year, it must be something else more worthy and fitting of the tag line.
00:58:50 - Paul recommends Behind The Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon.
01:42:01 - Back to Rob Zombie's Halloween. Lots more discussions to come in part 2 of this episode.
