The Halloween Burger

Posted in Halloween, Holiday, news on September 29, 2015 by chrisdsav

Burger King came out with their weirdest creation ever. One in time for Halloween. The Halloween Burger is a whopper with pickels tomato onion mayo and A 1 steak sauce. All on top a BLACK seasame bun. WTF? YUP A BLACK CHARCOAL COLORED BUN. It looks disgusting. …..but I bought it and ate it. It’s not bad. It comes wrapped in a wrapper that look like a mummy.
The A1 sauce is used to make the bun dough black. Interesting idea. I didn’t really taste it.

It’s worth picking up just to say you ate it.
Happy Halloween.


Your poo will be bright green

We played old show interviews. Thanks to every one who is following us now on the blog and our you tube page.  I picked up some great horror comics and was able to meet and get some great interviews which we will be playing coming up very very soon. Nikki Klyne from Battlestar Gallactica will be on the show soon. Jack Purcell a DC comic artist will be on wit us and Jennifer Rose a cosplayer we have met at several conventions.

One of the best comics I picked up was a big stack of Horror graphic novels. I got caught up on my Walking Dead with vol 23, and 24. Werewolf by Night vol2, EXsanguine, Fright Night part 1 and 2 and Son of Dracula a rare comic from Atlas Comics, I have only seen once or twice.

Hartford Comic Con

Hey everyone  who reads the blog and follows the show on WCUW 91.3 FM. I will be at the Hartford  Comic  Con this weekend. If your from CT come on down buy a ticket. As I have at previous  conventions we will be raising money for a charity. The Boston Children’s Hospital in Boston Massachusetts  saved my son’s life 8 years  ago and he continues  being a patient  there doing yearly check ups. We will be giving away prizes such as posters, t shirts, books, comics, DVDs and blu rays, and other assorted items from the horror industry. I will have my lovely assistant Elena Ferrari with me to help at the convention.

I may or may not have a show this weekend……live. Radio of Horror will still be on the air with past interviews and more.
Don’t forget to check us out on Facebook  and our youtube channel for past interviews.

The History of Metal and Horror.

Posted in documentary, DVD, music, news on September 14, 2015 by chrisdsav

A subject we have talked about on this show for many years. In fact I can’t think of any other music industry more connected to Horror than the metal music scene. Rob Zombie, Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osborne, Slayer, Helloween, The Misfits, out most recent band Altar of Dagon. They all have some connection  to the Horror genre.
Now a new documentary is coming out to explore the history and connection between the two.

The History of Metal and Horror” is a documentary which explores the evolution of both heavy metal and horror and how the two genres have merged over time. It is common for fans of metal to be fans of horror, and vice versa. 

Check out the link below from Indiegogo. You have less than 60 days to help fund this awesome project.

Mike Schiff serves as writer, director, producer, director of photography, and editor. Mike resides in the Bronx, NY and has spent the last year traveling the country in order to film the interviews. This project was initially made possible with friend, Robert L. Lucas who has strong ties in the horror and heavy metal industry.
