combo attack presents: nightmare fuel part two:mike

Our October celebration rages on with another nerve-shredding selection from the video vault.

Once again digging from the cinematic mass graveyard of the 1970s came the unbridled power of the italian horror film in a powerhouse from gialli favorite, Dario Argento. Short on logic, and unrelenting on the terror, even the trailer for this film is enough to scare grown men off of sleep for a few nights.

Mike recollects, and shares his love of this 1977 classic.

Episode 007 – The Flesh Of The Matter (Re:The Original Dead Trilogy)


Low on ammunition, supplies, and hope. The CA team is barricading all doors and windows…but they aren’t alone.

Diving headlong into our October series of Combo Attack!! shows, we figured it was time to lay a great geek trope to rest by taking it out the most rudimentary way we know how..from the source. Next to the vampire, fewer modern monsters have gained the pop culture traction quite like the lumbering, moaning, flesh-gnashing zombie. So it only felt natural to take this ever popular concept, and talk the seminal works of one George A. Romero, as we examine the scares & social impact of his original Dead trilogy!

And for just this purpose, we also have on our show, special guest in the form of So-Cal filmmaker, DJ, performance artist, and professed zombiphile, Manuel Gomez (aka @DjLoVeDaY on Twitter!).

From the inimitable classic Night Of The Living Dead, the consumerism-gone madness that is Dawn Of The Dead, and through the grimy 80s apoca-fest, Day Of The Dead, the intrepid four will attempt to navigate, and survive the perils of geek cliche, by sharing views, memories & little known facts about these legendary pieces of horror history, and perhaps why they have become such a staple of fan films, convention panels, and websites.

(btw- Should it still not be enough for you after the show, stop on by The Anime Network for a little something extra. ::wink,wink-nudge-Oh OK, I’m leaving.:: )
