Shawgust continues and our friend Ian from Rock! Shock! Pop! and the Queens Comic Podcast joins us again for our annual discussion of a Shaw Brothers horror movie. This week we discuss Ghost Eyes, one of Kuei Chih-Hung's lesser-known horror films but the most(?) Italian of perhaps any Hong Kong horror film. Plus lots of whistling!

We're kicking off Shawgust with a Shaw Brothers-adjacent fantasy/action/horror film directed by the GOAT Chang Cheh. Spinning skulls, pesky demons, revenge, shirtless men, and water skiing. This one has it all and then some!

For a deep dive into the Ramsay brothers' Purana Mandir, we've enlisted the help of Josh Hurtado, the exalted potentate of Indian cinema (ok, slight exaggeration, but he's definitely one of the most knowledgeable Westerners on this subject matter). In addition to the film, we discuss the best way to watch one of these films and some of the cultural idiosyncrasies that make films from India so unique.

Lance has taken a risk by choosing a horror comedy that very few people will find funny. But it gave us a chance to focus on one of our favorite actors, Oliver Reed. While we do get into the cast and crew, don't expect an in-depth discussion of Heckyl and Hype, as we spend most of our time talking about its star.

Next episode: Purana Mandir (1984), available in the Bollywood Horrors box set from Mondo Macabro or on YouTube (turn on...

We're back in one of our favorite subgenres: rip-offs! But this time we've got one from a very unexpected country ripping off a very unexpected zombie movie. This LIVING DEAD AT MANCHESTER MORGUE rip-off from South Korea may eliminate the gore, but it still holds its own.

April Showers of Blood continues as we take a trip to the farm. And then the sanitarium. And then back to the farm. And then on the road and finally to a mansion. There's a lot going on with Matthew's psychosis and mommy issues, and we unpack it all.

It's Giallo January once again and in this episode, we brought in some help because we're covering a Giallo starring one of the most prolific Spanish actors ever, Paul Naschy.  Joining us this episode to discuss not just this film but the career of Naschy is author Troy Howarth.
