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.

Their reputation precedes them. They’re often mentioned as some of the most depraved films ever committed to tape and you may have even heard stories involving copycat killers, famous Hollywood actors, snuff films, and the FBI. In tonight’s episode we attempt to demystify the bizarre history behind the infamous Guinea Pig films. The post E134: GUINEA PIG SERIES OVERVIEW appeared first on Channel 83.
Whatcha gonna do when Corpse Mania runs wild on you brother? Whatever you do, be sure not to cross paths with a man who wears his sunglasses at night, it won’t end up well for you.

We continue our dive into Asian Horror with 1966’s Daimajin, the first kaiju film to be covered on Channel 83. Are kaiju films horror films? Today we try to answer that question and more. One thing is for sure: this oft-overlooked kaiju film about a giant samurai statue come to life is definitely worth your … Continue reading E132: DAIMAJIN (大魔神) → The post E132: DAIMAJIN (大魔神) appeared first on Channel 83.
Today we’re covering our first film out of Japan for our Asian horror extravaganza. Toho’s Matango (1963) brings together some legendary talent whose credits include Godzilla, Rodan, Frankenstein vs. Baragon, and The Mysterians, just to name a few. Does this film about an island inhabited by a deadly, sentient fungus live up to its pedigree? The post E131: MATANGO (マタンゴ) appeared first on Channel 83.



We’re kicking off our dive into Asian horror cinema by taking a look at the 1959 Filipino/American film Terror is a Man. Today’s film is a loose adaptation of H.G. Wells’ The Island of Dr. Moreau and was co-directed by two legends of Filipino cinema, Gerardo de Leon and Eddie Romero. The post E130: TERROR IS A MAN appeared first on Channel 83.
We’re back! Today’s episode is just a quick update on what we have in store for the rest of Season 2 on Channel 83.

This week we’re joined yet again by George, host of The Best Little Horror House in Philly! We’re wrapping up our month of Halloween Hangover with a non-horror movie that terrified George as a child, 1968’s car-come-to-life fantasy musical Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. The post E127: CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG – feat. George from The Best Little Horror House in Philly appeared first on Channel 83.



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.



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.



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.



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.



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?

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.



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?
