Before taking a month off from Blood on the Tracks to make way for the Wolfman, Lee Van Teeth, to do his Halloween show next month, Lee decided to drop some selections from his favourite horror film scores into your ear holes (now with a lot less talking!).

Lee, Daniel, and Paul dare to face the challenge of The Funhouse (1981), directed by Tobe Hooper. Is this an over-looked classic, or is it just a bit too dull to be anything but just okay? The crew has a spirited discussion of the film, tv guide, and jacking off in a Frakenstein's Monster mask. Who in the cast looks like a Troll Doll? What Lee has watched as of late and a couple of listener comments are also covered.

Lee and Daniel have a slightly shorter than usual chat about Jorge Grau's 1974 zombie film "Let Sleeping Corpses Lie" (AKA: about a million other titles). The homages and departures from Romero's "Night of the Living Dead" are discussed. Were the many title changes an attempt to repackage a terrible film or is this a hidden gem? Lee also talks briefly about what he's watched as of late.

What's better than three Hammer films about vampires? Why three Hammer films about lesbian vampires of course! In this episode Lee and Daniel are joined by their friend and fellow podcaster, Gary Hill, of the Cinema Beef podcast, to tackle two films in the so-called Karnstein trilogy. Together the three talk about "The Vampire Lovers" (1970) and "Twins of Evil" (1971). After that it's just Lee and Daniel left to cover "Lust for a Vampire" (1971). Lengthy asides about IMDB users and how films were watched back when these were released are had. This episode is big, bloody, and full of massive boobs (and some really lovely knockers are talked about as well). What's not to like?
