About This Show
Horror Business is an ongoing conversation about Horror Films. Lifelong horror fans Justin Lore and Liam O’Donnell gather monthly to discuss and dissect horror films in a sophisticated yet accessible manner. Academic yet easily digestible. High art washed down with a healthy dose of camp. Pinkies in the air whilst sipping our root beer. You get the picture. On Horror Business Justin and Liam will watch a double feature and go in depth about the films, and each show they will invite you, the listener, to be a part of the conversation.

Greetings pagans and godless heathens! Thank you as always for checking us out and we have got one H-E-L-L of an episode for you guys.
First and foremost we want to give a shoutout to our sponsors over at Lehigh Valley Apparel Creations, the premiere screen printing company of the Lehigh Valley. Chris Reject and his merry band of miscreants are ready to work with you to bring to life your vision of a t-shirt for your business, band, project, or whatever else it is you need represented by a shirt, sweater, pin, or coozy. Head on over to www.xlvacx.com to check them out. Thanks!
This episode we are discussing the oft-overlooked sub-genre of pastoral horror, or ‘folk horror’ as it’s known otherwise.
We begin by talking about what we’ve seen recently. Both of us were lucky enough to catch a screening of Julia Ducournau’s Raw. We briefly discuss the film and our thoughts on it (we really liked it) and then talk about the importance of local cinemas so that they can keep doing screenings like this. You can check out the Steel Stacks here. We then talk about M. Night Shyamalan’s newest film Split. Also, we talk about the newest member of the Cinepunx collective the GOT ME A MOVIE podcast hosted by Lori and Andrew Bergeron, as well as upcoming addition to Cinepunx, a story based podcast called BLACK SUN DISPATCHES. Check both of them out!
Before we get into the heart of the episode we talk about the recent passing of James “Doc Terror” Harris, a well-known and beloved fixture of the Northeast horror scene. The Cinepunx collective was lucky enough to interview James a few months back at a benefit screening for him. You can hear that interview here. Hudson Horror is doing a benefit screening of two Italian horror films with all the benefits going to James’ family, and you can get tickets for that here, and there is going to be a special screening of James’ favorite film Creepshow on 35 mm at the Alamo Drafthouse, and you can find out more on that here. Likewise, donations to James’ family can be made
