Channel 83 is a podcast dedicated to bringing you the best, worst, and weirdest that horror cinema has to offer. Each week, we will be picking three films that are tied together with a loose theme. We will give you a synopsis of each film, followed by a review/analysis/recommendation/anything else that we think you might find interesting.

In addition, we’ll be broadcasting these films so that you, the listeners, will have the chance to check out the films that we discuss.

What sort of movies can you expect? Well, we’ll be going through the horror franchises both major and minor, forgotten classics, unknown schlock, foreign oddities, and everything in-between. Horror can be a difficult genre to define so there may be some films that teeter on the edge. No matter the movie, we will always strive to provide you with content that will entertain, interest, or disgust horror buffs and horror noobs alike.

Thank you for listening, and long live the new flesh.

It is our 83rd episode of Channel 83 and if I’d had any sort of foresight, now would have been the perfect episode to review Videodrome but I didn’t, so we’re not.

Yet another topical rant this week on Channel 83.

The post E74: PSA – HORROR, GATEKEEPING, AND YOU appeared first on Channel 83.



We’re being lazy this week and releasing an episode that has been buried in the Channel 83 vault.

A Channel 83 double feature, 1967’s Wait Until Dark and 2020’s The Invisible Man. Two movies featuring “invisible” villains, but the way in which they achieve invisibility is completely different.
