Hitchcocktober concludes with a look at 1960’s The Birds and a little 2008 film it apparently inspired: Birdemic. One marks a transition point in the history of modern horror. The other is one of the worst movies ever made by the hand of man or beast.

In honor of this Most Wonderful Time of the Year, when the boundaries between worlds are at their thinnest, The Traumatic Cinematic Podcast presents exactly 66 minutes and 6 seconds of spooky (and, in one noteworthy instance, sexy) stories from the absolute best in modern podcasting. Join our Dr. Jeckle and Mr. Hyde of a host Lewis (@GenXnerd *MuGumBo*) Cougill, Mike (@Greymattersplat) Wickliff, Jon (@AfterMovieDiner) Cross, Moe (@DrunkonVHS) Porne, Sexy (@DirtybitPodcast) Sherry, Corey (@WizemenFilms) Miller, and, of course, me – your humble narrator – as we fuse the best parts of Old and New Schools into one great big pulsating, ulcerated mass of ear-candy.
Obligatory warning, so no one can say I didn’t give you one: this podcast contains explicit situations described in explicit language. Explicitly. Listener discretion is advised…because none of us want to find out how prudish you really are.
To honor of this most horrorderful time of the year, I revisit friend of the show(s) Jon Cross’ After Movie Diner to discuss The Evil Dead, Evil Clergyman, Lords of Salem, The Thing, Tremors, Godzilla, Dracula, Frankenstein, The Invisible Man, Ju-On, Audition, Zaat, The Howling, Howling 2 Your Sister is a Werewolf/Striba, Werewolf Bitch “and” as he aptly puts it, “MANY more.” With extra special guest: Jon’s wife, Theodora, whose blog you should visit often.
In this third installment of Traumatic Cinematic’s celebration of Alfred Hitchcock, we discuss my third favorite film of 1951, Strangers on a Train – and the many, many films it went on to inspire. Including Danny DeVito’s feature film debut, 1987’s Throw Momma from the Train.

Once again, the Traumatic Cinematic Show plumbs the depths of Alfred Hitchcock’s filmography, discussing 1956’s The Man Who Knew Too Much…which inevitably brings up 1934’s Man Who Knew Too Much, and how remakes in general don’t have to suck. This, as you might imagine, gets terribly serious. So we’ve counterbalanced it with a discussion of Bill Murray’s 1997’s vehicle, The Man Who Knew Too Little. And then I go a little crazy, but I hope you’ll all understand. I’ve done my best to document my problems with 1997 and we’ll have another opportunity to go over them very soon.
