    This week on The Escapist Movie Podcast, Bob Chipman, Jack Packard, and Darren Mooney go down the decades for some Horror movie recommendations. 2020's "Blood Quantum" is a standard Zombie flick from a fresh perspective, "In the Mouth of Madness"(1994) is an eerie John Carpenter movie that has plenty of gooey puppets, and "House"(1985) is a rare example of a monster as a LITERAL metaphor.

Bob is wrong here. King has written several stories in the Cthulhu Mythology. Also: "[House] is labelled as Horror Comedy, but I don't see the Comedy in it." *Everyone laughing as they describe the film.*

I had this video picture-in-picture, in the bottom corner of my screen, as I was at work. As the video was small in the corner, Mooney's glasses ended up looking like he was a little tired, but sporting lovely light blue eye-shadow and mascara. Just for the record, Mooney, it really suited you!

I love this podcast, great addition to the channel. Small request though, could you do timestamps since I usually don't have time to watch all the way through in one sitting?

I will also suggest The Babysitter and The Babysitter Killer Queen. Light on plot, a little gory but just a fun ride. They are both on Netflix.

I never knew how much I needed three grown men (vaguely egg shaped) to talk about House. As a lonely kid back in the 80's that movie meant the world to me. Like, screw Goonies or Monster Squad (though I loved both), House was the real latch-key kid movie. As an egg shaped middle aged person from the late 70s and early 80's I deeply connected with this. I don't normally subscribe to this philosophy but with House I will gladly say "subtlety is for cowards".

House was one of the few movies that terrified me as a child just because it was so creepy in the use of the monsters inside a real house.

First, you DO understand that I am only subscribed to The Escapist because of Ben Croshaw. Second, WHY do you need one hour and twenty minutes to recommend three horror movies? Third, see number one. One minute an twenty five seconds in and I have all I need to know. I agree. Good choices.

House was a MASSIVE hit and remains incredibly popular to this day. At the time, House was made to take advantage of the growing "home video" segment - only getting a "nudge nudge wink wink say no more" theatrical release because unions and rules. William Katt (The Greatest American Hero!) + George Wendt (NORM!) + Kay Lenz (OMG I HAVE LOVED THAT WOMAN SINCE MY CHILDHOOD) + Richard Moll AND Steven Williams? BEST MOVIE EVER. Fight me. OK? If you bring up Return of the Living Dead you might have an argument... Otherwise, I win.

Bob how the heck did you get LL Cool J mixed up with Coolio? There is nothing physically about the two that is similar enough that you would get the two of them confused. Coolio was in Dracula 3000 but not in any of the Halloween movies.

The only thing I ever remember from House is the Vietnam guy, and just that memory alone makes me love that movie. I still have the VHS somewhere in my old room at my parents place.

Not excusing his views, but Lovecraft was more extreme Xenophobic than really racist, which he regretted and repented in some letters later in his life. So at least he realized his error before his end.

Oh yeah, didn't Lovecraft's views kind of destroyed his marriage? That and his wife was tired of supporting him.

Since no one asked: House was a hit in Italy when it came out, before Evil Dead. So when Evil Dead came out, the Italian distributor tried to bank on the hit of “ House” by renaming ED “La Casa” e.g. “The House”. Loved both when they came out.

Damn, dudes, how are you going to list off Lake Placid actors and totally snub Orlando Jones, also Coolio was NEVER in Halloween H20, you're thinking of LL Cool J. Smh, y'all need more black friends.

Carpenter got free reign because Halloween was literally the most profitable movie of all time until Blair Witch came along. That's how you get an A+ to a producer.

In the Mouth of Madness is my favorite horror movie because of its similarity to both Lovecraft and King. It has more in common with a Lovecraftian story than Lovecraft Country which has Lovecraft in the title for.... Anyhow, one nick to pick with Bob who may not be a Stephen King fan as far as reading goes but King's writing actually has a lot of Lovecraftian influence. He actually wrote a short horror story that features Nyarlhotep a Cthulian mythos being created by Lovecraft (and features in the limited series from a few years ago Nightmares and Dreamscapes I believe). Saying the guy has nothing to do with Lovecraft when he has actually written Lovecraft fan fiction more or less and things like Mist which was very Lovecraft in nature is kind of a false statement. Just saying. I was so happy to see that ItMoM was one of the movies being covered in this segment. You guys are always fun to watch!! Keep up the good work!

I like to recommend the Evil Dead remake. People didn't like it because of the difference in tone from the original series, but that is just a brutal, unforgiving goddamn movie.

I had a filmography student telling me that he couldn't believe the quality of the physical effects in it. He couldn't see how some of them could even be done. I couldn't watch it, though. The scene in the trailer when the demon lady splits her tongue in a knife triggered me enough to know it was going to be a bit too much for my ability to handle.

@Cage532 Yeah I honestly can't think of too many darker movies than that. Shit like The Void comes close, but people are afraid to go that overboard with the truly evil demonic shit. Most of those kinds of movies are tame as hell like The Conjuring or The Nun. It was like a black metal song became a movie.

Agreed, I think Evil Dead 2013 was able to stand on it's own as a good movie even if never did get out of the shadow of the original.
