New Episode of The (title pending) Movie Podcast with Tank and Fogs!!

Happy Halloweeeeeen, everybody! :D

We have a very special epsiode for you this week. This week, to celebrate the Horror Genre, our resident self-proclaimed “Big Horror Guy” Chris Tanski took to the streets and canvassed the vaunted “Horror Community”, trying to ascertain what people’s favorite Horror Movies of all time were! He obtained contributions from 13 different horror afficianados, including bloggers, fans, and horror magazine contributors in order to compile a listing of their 50 favorite Horror films!

A whopping 240 movies were nominated via this process, so the top 50 certainly had to earn their keep!

To help present the Top 50, we invite back Ben Scrivens of Fright-Rags.com, and first time visitor Jesse Bartel of Liberaldead.com. Together, the four of us list out 50-11, and then break down the top 10 in depth! What makes the cut? Which ones do Tank and I like unreasonably in comparison to others? How did your favorite horror movies fare?

Give a listen to find out!!

You can download it directly, here, or as always, look for us on Stitcher Radio and iTunes by searching for (title pending) or Tank and Fogs!

Happy Halloweeeeeen, TPMP Listeners!

There are 293 films on IMDb with the keyword “Slasher Flick”. Of those, only 12 were released prior to “Halloween”, of those only six were American movies. Of those six, the highest user rating is “The Gore Gore Girls” at 5.2.

You can be assured that none of those films launched the slasher movie craze that dominated horror through the 80s and most of the 90s.

No, that honor belongs to “Halloween”.
