This week on the Squick or Squee podcast we turn turn the tables your host sits in the interview seat answering questions from Eddie “the Axe” Jefferson, host of the Bloodybits Horror Show, Eddie clearly does wonder why Faustus does as he does. So if you want to learn more about your host than is possibly healthy to know, do tune in. And be sure also to tune in to Eddie’s show, where he and Tim Yobo entertain us all with voyages to the dark side of humanity every week.
I join with Eddie the Axe and Tim Yobo this week on The Bloodybits Horror Show to discuss Fritz Lang’s 1931 classic M, the movie that pretty much invented the serial-killer genre and introduced Peter Lorre to the world. I probably talk too much about Weimar Germany and also tell an anecdote about something super-creepy that happened Peter Lorre’s American daughter Catharine in 1977.

It is with great pleasure that I can announce my appearance with Eddie the Axe and Tim Yobo discussing David Cronenberg’s The Fly (1986). If you’re a really long-time reader of this site, you’ll know that this movie has been a fave of mine for just about always, and we had a grand old time discussing it.

It is with great pleasure that I can announce that my second appearance on Eddie the Axe’s Bloodybits Horror Show where Eddie, Tim Yobo, and I get to discuss David Cronenberg’s early body-horror entry Rabid. We had a lot of fun with this one (it’s always fun with those guys), discussing what body horror is, the continuing relevance of Sigmund Freud in interpreting horror, and how Marilyn Chambers turned out to be a far better actor than most people would have expected. You can listen to or find a place to download the entire episode on this page. Enjoy (but do pray that it doesn’t happen to you).
It is my privilege to be able to announce that Eddie the Axe Jefferson, gracious host of The Bloodybits Horror Show (on which I had a recent guest appearance) has now put up a Patreon. Eddie does a lot with horror — but not just movies, it could be anything horror-related, and i suspect this podcast will be venturing afield into many realms of the dark and macabre. Not limiting his ambitions and considerable talents to podcasting, Eddie has also put up an Internet livestream for Patreon supporters with its own kind of cool content. If any of these sorts of things interest you, I urge you to get over there and show him some support. These may be tough times, but for less than the price of an espresso every month, you can help keep the blade of culture sharp and shiny. The Horror Gods thank you!
It is a privilege and a pleasure to announce another guest podcast appearance, this time on Eddie “the Axe” Jefferson’s new audio venture The Bloodybits Horror Show, on which we discuss David Cronenberg’s 1983 masterpiece Videodrome. Ever been scared at the thought at what’s really being beamed onto your screen? You should be. I conjecture at some length about a what I think is the underlying psychological mechansim that makes movies like Videodrome (and so much of the rest of Cronenberg’s oeuvre) so compelling. Eddie compellingly narrates gory detail after gory detail.
