Description

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.

E126: BIG WAVE

E126: BIG WAVE

2020-11-24--:--

The Halloween season has passed and just like last year we’re switching things up a bit this week and taking a look at a movie that is decidedly non-horror to help you get over your Halloween Hangover. After 31 days straight of horror we could all do with a bit of a palate cleanser, I … Continue reading E126: BIG WAVE → The post E126: BIG WAVE appeared first on Channel 83.
Hello, videodrones! Thanks for sticking with us through our 31 in 31 marathon! Today we’re bringing you a quick episode wrapping up the month of October before taking a short break! The post E125: HOOPTOBER WRAP-UP appeared first on Channel 83.
E123: PUMPKINHEAD II

E123: PUMPKINHEAD II

2020-10-30--:--

If the Pumpkinhead franchise has taught us anything, it’s that sometimes it’s better to let sleeping demons lie. I only wish that Jeff Burr and co. had heeded that advice before deciding to make Pumpkinhead II: Blood Wings. The post E123: PUMPKINHEAD II appeared first on Channel 83.
E122: THE MANGLER 2

E122: THE MANGLER 2

2020-10-29--:--

Tonight we’re reviewing The Mangler 2 from 2002. You may remember that the original Mangler was one of the films that was submitted to us for Shitty September. If there’s one thing that horror fandom has taught me over the years it’s that horror franchise sequels follow the law of diminishing returns, so when your … Continue reading E122: THE MANGLER 2 → The post E122: THE MANGLER 2 appeared first on Channel 83.
Rather than using the Hooptober marathon’s requirement of watching one invisible man film as an opportunity to finally watch Universal’s classic 1933 film The Invisible Man, we at Channel 83 instead decided to do what we always do: go with a much more obscure film that probably no one cares about. Tonight we’re reviewing the … Continue reading E121: INVISIBLE MAN (透明人間) → The post E121: INVISIBLE MAN (透明人間) appeared first on Channel 83.
The original Candyman is one of only two films that I’ve reviewed on this cast that I’ve given a 5-star rating on Letterboxd. I love that movie, I believe it is one of the best, if not the best horror movie of the 1990s. I’ve always considered myself a fan of the sequel as well, … Continue reading E120: CANDYMAN: FAREWELL TO THE FLESH → The post E120: CANDYMAN: FAREWELL TO THE FLESH appeared first on Channel 83.
E119: GIALLO IN VENICE

E119: GIALLO IN VENICE

2020-10-26--:--

It’s day 26 of our Hooptober marathon we’re getting so damn close to finishing this and tonight’s film, 1979’s Giallo in Venice, is a corker. Released on December 31st, 1979, Giallo in Venice marks the end of the giallo’s heyday in the 1970s both literally and figuratively. By this point the artistry that had become … Continue reading E119: GIALLO IN VENICE → The post E119: GIALLO IN VENICE appeared first on Channel 83.
E118: ANAK AMBAR

E118: ANAK AMBAR

2020-10-25--:--

Anak Ambar is an Indonesian short film directed by Melvin Giovanie and written by Fanny Gunawan. It’s a pretty straightforward film and, like The Oily Maniac, is an adaptation of traditional Malay mythology. Does this low-budget short deliver the horror goods? The post E118: ANAK AMBAR appeared first on Channel 83.
Bride of Re-Animator sees the return of Jeffrey Combs and Bruce Abbott to Miskatonic University in Brian Yuzna’s follow-up to the 1985 Lovecraftian classic. With effects from Buechler, Nicotero, and Screaming Mad George, Bride of Re-Animator is everything you want in a goofy horror gorefest. But does it live up to the legacy of the … Continue reading E117: BRIDE OF RE-ANIMATOR → The post E117: BRIDE OF RE-ANIMATOR appeared first on Channel 83.
E116: DARK UNIVERSE

E116: DARK UNIVERSE

2020-10-23--:--

Tonight we’re reviewing our 3rd and final disease-based film for the Hooptober marathon. This one, 1993’s Dark Universe, is brought to us by the same dynamic writer/director duo that gave us 1995’s Jack-O. Throw Joe Estevez and Steve Barkett into the mix and we’ve got ourselves a stew going! The post E116: DARK UNIVERSE appeared first on Channel 83.
A little over a month ago, we reviewed the first Violent Shit film for our Shitty September marathon. In fact, the first Violent Shit was so bad that it ended up being crowned the winner of Shitty September. Obviously I wasn’t too stoked to watch the sequel being that the first is one of the … Continue reading E115: VIOLENT SHIT II: MOTHER HOLD MY HAND → The post E115: VIOLENT SHIT II: MOTHER HOLD MY HAND appeared first on Channel 83.
Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight was directed by Ernest Dickerson, the same man that graced us with Surviving the Game! Featuring appearances from William Sadler and a very young, very delicious Billy Zane, is Demon Knight the best TFTC movie? The post E114: TALES FROM THE CRYPT: DEMON KNIGHT appeared first on Channel 83.
E113: BASKET CASE 2

E113: BASKET CASE 2

2020-10-20--:--

Basket Case 2 is a follow-up to writer/director Frank Henenlotter’s 1982 debut film about the brothers Bradley. Duane and Belial are back and better than ever and although this sequel is a much more polished film than the first, there’s still plenty of gonzo, Henenlotter charm to be found in Basket Case 2. The post E113: BASKET CASE 2 appeared first on Channel 83.
Tonight we’re joined by friend of the cast Mike Ward. Mike is an all-around cool guy and former writer for Mondo Exploito, so we called upon him to help us dissect 1991’s The Guyver! Mark Hamill, Michael Berryman, David Gale, Jeffrey Combs, Jimmie “JJ” Walker, and Linnea Quigley star in this is great American tokusatsu … Continue reading E112: THE GUYVER – feat. Mike Ward → The post E112: THE GUYVER – feat. Mike Ward appeared first on Channel 83.
E111: REJUVENATRIX

E111: REJUVENATRIX

2020-10-18--:--

It’s day 18 of our Hooptober horror marathon and I stand before you a broken man. We’re a little more than halfway through the month and for the first time so far, I feel like I’m having a rough go of it. Tonight’s film, 1988’s Rejuvenatrix, is the first movie I’ve reviewed where I’ve really … Continue reading E111: REJUVENATRIX → The post E111: REJUVENATRIX appeared first on Channel 83.
E110: THE BLOB

E110: THE BLOB

2020-10-17--:--

It creeps and leaps and glides and slides across the floor! It’s the friggin’ Blob! Today we take a quick look at Irvin S. Yeaworth Jr.’s 1958 classic. Steve McQueen stars opposite a squishy mass of silicone in this landmark of B-cinema. The post E110: THE BLOB appeared first on Channel 83.
E109: PRIMAL RAGE

E109: PRIMAL RAGE

2020-10-16--:--

Now, if you’re like me, you hear the name Primal Rage and your mind immediately thinks of the 1994 video game about dinosaurs fighting each other but tonight’s film isn’t anything like that. Again, this one goes towards fulfilling the Hooptober requirement of watching 3 disease-based films and this one was a doozy. The post E109: PRIMAL RAGE appeared first on Channel 83.
E108: ATLANTICS

E108: ATLANTICS

2020-10-15--:--

Mati Diop’s Atlantics is a beautifully-shot, languid mystery/romance set in Dakar, Senegal. The film received high praise upon its release in 2019, even making then-U.S. President Barack Obama’s list of his favorite movies of 2019. But is it a horror movie? The post E108: ATLANTICS appeared first on Channel 83.
E107: THE CARRIER

E107: THE CARRIER

2020-10-14--:--

I had really considered going rogue and skipping the Hooptober “disease-based films” category. I mean, do we really need another reminder of how shitty things are in the world today? But ultimately, I decided that I may as well just play along with the rules and The Carrier made me glad that I did. This … Continue reading E107: THE CARRIER → The post E107: THE CARRIER appeared first on Channel 83.
E106: FUNNY GAMES

E106: FUNNY GAMES

2020-10-13--:--

Continuing on with our Hooptober marathon, today we take a quick look at the Austrian home invasion film, Funny Games from 1997. Michael Haneke’s polarizing film was famously called “a complete piece of shit” by French filmmaker, Jacques Rivette. Let’s see if he was right.
