Welcome back to our ongoing Guilty Pleasure’s bonus series! A series we begun as part of our friends Bloodhound Pix #HorrorNotFear campaign, which will see New Horror Express along with several other outlets offering bonus content up until June 2021. But which now will continue on as part of the Morbidly Beautiful network, forever!
We ran a poll on social media platforms to see which film we would look at in our (No So) Christmas Crackers edition of the series between “Santa’s Slay” and “The Gingerdead Man.” And in what was our closest vote to date you went with 2005’s Goldberg-starring “Santa’s Slay.”
Alongside NHE host Scott Murphy to deep dive into this one we have two great former guests in the form of “A Ghost Waits” director Adam Stovall and “Her Infernal Names and Other Nightmares” author Robert Ottone. The latter of whom is making his series debut while the former is a guilty pleasures veteran with this being his fourth appearance since it began in June!
Over the course of the episode you will hear all three try to unravel the plot of the movie, dissect it is many entertaining kills and debate whether this film features James Caan’s greatest death since “The Godfather.” Plus you will hear Robert explain how the movie made him discover the spirit of Christmas, Adam theorise that this film actually is Trump’s America and all three brainstorming on an alt-cut of the film.
Elsewhere in the episode the trio talk Roger Corman, Full Moon Features, 90s Wrestling, the evils of Brett Ratner and much, much more in what might be the most jam-packed episode of the series to date.
