Episode 18: Shot-on-Video Horror, Part Three, feat. Patrick Ripoll of Tracks of the Damned

LISTEN IN TERROR AS WE CONTINUE TO BE STRANGLED BY THE GNARLED, RIPPLING TENTACLES OF DEAD ANALOG MEDIA!



Part three of our epic (seemingly never-ending) FOUR-PART look back on the insane world of shot-on-video horror movies from the pre-digital era. Gabe and returning extra-special co-host Patrick Ripoll of Tracks of the Damned (who, again, did most of the research) trudge through an additional 32 movies, 12 of which one or both of them were able to watch, including D3’s Death Row Diner (1988), Wally Koz’ 555 (1988), Herb Robins’ The Brainsucker (1988), Jim Whiteaker’s Night Feeder (1988), Dean Alioto’s The McPherson Tape (1989), and Eric Parkinson, Michael Rissi & Steve Sommers’ Terror Eyes (1989).
