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 creepazoids, and welcome back to Horror Business, the podcast that doesn’t feel pity, it doesn’t feel remorse, it can’t be reasoned with, and it will not stop until you are as just as much an elitist asshole about horror movie as we are. Thank you as always for checking us out and we have got one heck of an episode for you guys.

Also a huge thanks to friend of the podcast Albert Martin of the Lehigh Valley Horror Facebook group for his unflagging support of this podcast. Without you guys, we are nothing. Thanks!

We discuss how originally this episode was supposed to be an “evil alien” episode on Without Warning and Xtro but because those movies are apparently rare as fuck we skipped on it, and then move on to the actual films of this episode.
