The Dogcast: Some “Dark Fantasy” for your old radio pleasure!

Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with some more old radio fun. In honor of the ultra-scary horror movie “Smile” releasing this week, I thought it would be fun for all of you old radio fans to get a load of a couple of episodes of “Dark Fantasy,” a popular supernatural series from the 1940s. These two episodes have a creep factor but are old fashioned entertaining corn in all the best ways. You’ll want to check these out as a pallet cleanser after the nerve-shattering ride of “Smile.” Enjoy the old radio thrillers and feel free to either comment below or on my Facebook page. So Sayeth The Kendog!

Dark Fantasy – The Thing From The Darkness – 4/3/1942

The Kenblog: Great Horror Movie Soundtracks In Time For Halloween!

Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a little treat. Here are my favorite soundtracks to horror films (of which I hope to discuss with Pat Walsh on his show this week).

There are some greats in here, folks you’ve heard of, but I’ve managed to include a couple of underrated pieces as well. They are in no particular order as we all have different preferences. But enjoy these classic soundtracks on a dark and stormy night and feel free to comment below or on my Facebook page. So Sayeth The Kendog!

Michael Meyers Is Back In “Halloween”

 

 

In 1978, director John Carpenter pretty much defined the slasher movie with “Halloween” pitting a masked psychopath against a group of high schoolers in the ultimate game of survival!  (Bob Clark’s “Black Christmas” was probably the first “slasher film” but Carpenter’s film really refined the concept.)  Since then there have been a bevy of sequels and two reboots, each film varying in quality and in what these films added to an increasingly convoluted mythology.   In this new film, writer/director David Gordon Green and frequent collaborator Danny McBride have basically wiped the slate clean, creating a direct sequel forty years in the making, and the film is all the better for it.
