Yes, Matt from the Compañeros Radio Network has returned to the show to discuss two "horror" movies from 1987. First, we talk about the high schoolin', food fightin', radio-mind-controllin' good time that is Invasion of the Mindbenders. Then, we dig deep into the dusty bins of thrift stores to find, what else, but a slasher movie! It's Posesssion (no, not that one) and it's... a movie. Find out our thoughts and so much more on our latest episode!
  27. This week on a very special episode of Hoser Horror, Dan and Carlo decide to dive into two more spooktastic horror flicks, as is customary around this time of year. Or so they thought! Our films for this episode include the 1984 blood-splashin' Evil Judgment and the 1990 dramatic thriller Blood Clan.

That doesn't deter us from talking about it though!Listen to this episode and hear all about how and why Evil Judgment director Claudio Castravelli started his company Taurus 7 Film Corporation. Find out if Blood Clan feels like a late-night slot-filler thanks to being co-produced by First Choice Superchannel.
