SHV - S10E07 - Rob Zombie's Halloween (2007)
No remake is seeking revenge in this season more than this one. In a season that has brought us movies that are generally beloved by horror fans we've hit a polarizing roadblock as the controversial Rob Zombie remakes perhaps the most beloved horror film of all time, John Carpenter's 1978 "Halloween". We'll look at the alternate realities where a Halloween vs Hellraiser crossover almost took place, Rob Zombie's path to get there, what John Carpenter thought of it and much more.

SHV - S10E06 - The Hills Have Eyes (2006)
Revenge of the remakes soldiers on with the BRUTAL 2006 remake of The Hills Have Eyes directed by Alexander Aja, produced by Wes Craven. We dig into all the gory goodness to look at this stylish, but very similar retelling with a sick & offensive coat of paint. You could also just call it the movie where the girl from Hocus Pocus involuntarily breast-feeds a deformed mutant cannibal.

We'll also talk about George Romero's lost pilot for the Pro Wrestling show Iron City Ass-Kickers, also available from Image 987 and how Dan, JB & Boomer's wrestling careers all at least indirectly intersected at one point or another and they found they all had quite a bit in common, including mutual friends. We'll also get a great George Romero story about what inspired ICA and how George himself was a wrestling fan. This was a great time and we definitely hope to have the Image 987 crew back on.

SHV - S09E01 - Underworld (1985)
Shit's been weird lately in the world y'all, so we're just leaning into it in 2021 with one of the most depraved, sadistic & creative writers in horror history. Welcome to Seeking Human Victims Season 9: The Clive Barker Terror Timeline! This is a little different than our previous TT seasons (Carpenter, Craven) in that Barker has only directed a small handful of films so he falls more into that Stephen King category of legendary creators as a writer who's works have been adapted many times over. In episode 1, we're looking at Barker's background and early life, his initial fame as a playwright and his transition into literature. The film we're covering was his first work on a film of any kind and he was hired to write the script for director George Pavlou after meeting him at a dinner party. The movie is 1985's "Underworld", and we're not talking vampires, werewolves & Kate Beckinsale but underground mutants, hookers & hoodlums in this late night British cable find!Available at all major podcast providers & our Patreon Page!Patreon.com/OGScare

SHV - Bonus Episode - 2020 Year In Review
Here is a special bonus year in review episode before we kick off Season 9 next week. A couple of disclaimers: - This episode is just Dan who recorded some quick, informal thoughts on the year. These are Dan's opinions and are his alone and don't necessarily reflect the rest of the Seeking Human Victims broadcast team or One Good Scare Productions as a whole. He talks about the various OGS projects and accomplishments that 2020 brought, goes over what his favorite movies of the year were, and pays some tribute to his fallen friends from the wrestling business. - Dan totally forgot to mention the movie "HOST" from director Rob Savage. It was THE film of the pandemic and captured the isolation and dread many of us were feeling. It was even recorded entirely on Zoom! That was another of his favorites of 2020 and is also streaming on Shudder.
