RIP to those we lost in 2015

Posted in actors, death on December 31, 2015 by chrisdsav

In 2015 we lost Christopher Lee (Dracula), Gunnar Hanson (Leatherface) Betsy Palmer (Pamela Vorhees) Leonard Nimoy (Spock) and so many others and the one that hurt the most was Wes Craven. You can hear why in my tribute to Wes.

Boston Yeti Unmasked

Posted in horror, Horror Survival News, Monsters, news on December 23, 2015 by chrisdsav

Back in the horrible Winter of 2015 I reported  on the Boston Yeti. A man in a yeti costume who helped out around Boston shoveling people out and brining some much needed good times during an awful  winter. Now just before Christmas  the Boston Yeti has been revealed and it was on WGBH. John Campopiano one of the people behind d the upcoming Pet Semetary  documentary was the man behind the mask. A native to New England  and a good man, as well as a former guest of Radio of Horror. John will be apearing  in the book The New England  Horror Filmmakers sometime when ever I can get it published ūüėČ It’s true horror survival  news as he survived the Blizzard of 2015.

Dr.Chris Record Spotlight : Star Wars

Posted in music, sci-fi, vinyl on December 18, 2015 by chrisdsav

This month in honor of The Force Awakens coming to theaters today we look at the original¬† film soundtrack. Now instead of telling you all the features¬† with the soundtrack and why it’s so great, I’m going to share with you some memories.

image

This is STAR WARS wig music by the great John Williams¬† who has conducted¬† the score for all 6 previous¬† films. You don’t need me to tell you why it’s so epic and awesome. John won an Academy¬† Award for the score in 1978.
My father had a copy for many years and he gave me his when I got my own stereo. It was a little best up but still loved it none the same. I would listen to this for hours as a kid as we didn’t own a copy of the movie. This was he 80s and VS movies were not cheap.¬†
Years later I was at a flea market  and underneath a vendors table he had a box of dusty old records. I pulled it out and there it was almost as brand new as the day it was made in 1977. (In fact at the time of the movies release this the book and the comic by Marvel was the only real merchandise  you could find. For information on why just Google the history of Star Wars merchandise.)
It was great I coukd not belive how mint it was. I also found the sound track to The Empire Strikes Back as well.

Below you can see some great pictures from the copy I bought to replace my father’s old worn out and over played one. As well as the rare and super cool art poster insert found with in the slip case.

Christmas Movies: GREMLINS

Posted in Christmas, DVD, Fantasy, Monsters on December 16, 2015 by chrisdsav

EVER SEEN IT. WHAT YOU HAVE NEVER SEEN GREMLINS. It’s seriously¬† one of the best Christmas movie, (yes FUCK ING CHRISTMAS¬† NOT FUCK ING HOLIDAY MOVIES. THIS CELEBRATES NO OTHER HOLIDAY OTHER THAN¬† CHRISTMAS)
Staring Zack Galigan, former guest of my show and Phoebe  Cates. Howie Mandel and Frank Welker (Megatron from Transformers, Doctpr Claw from Inspector Gadget,and several hundred other voices) provide the voices for Gizmo and several other Gremlins.
Recently released in a magnet sealed case for its 30th Anniversary¬† last year with all new bonus material, it’s a great film to check out or watch again.

The sequel  Gremlins 2 the new batch is also on blu ray and kicks ass.

Adam Green and Joe Lynch did a great fan commentary  with Zack last year for Christmas, you can check out the link here
