PLAY EPISODE 24: DAY OF THE DEAD


 


Horror authors T. Fox Dunham & Phil Thomas dedicate this episode of What Are You Afraid Of? Horror & Paranormal Podcast to the many international holidays that celebrate death. Part of their countdown to Halloween—and the countdown is nearly complete!

Phil & Fox share this episode with special guests Mark Wenger & Dan Doran: directors, scriptwriters and producers of the popular Indie horror film, Terrortory. This delightful and low-budget movie is available on Amazon Prime for free until Nov 1st. The third of their trio, Kevin Kangas, was unavailable but has sent a written interview for the podcast website. The film was produced by Kangas Khan Films and makeup was done by Original Sin FX. The movie is an anthology of urban legends—a lot of slashers and monsters including a pumpkin-head guy, a sad silent clown and a killer drone—set in the woods of Maryland. Mark & Dan talk about their inspiration, filming style, setbacks making the film and give advice for new filmmakers. They offer listeners a special discount on purchases from Kangas Khan Films, but you have to listen to find out how to get it!

They feature another true ghost story from author Suzanne Madron who lives in supernatural central, Gettysburg. Shadows Strange & the Thing in the Yard tells the story of a haunting in her home, narrated by British folksinger, David Walton.

The hosts end the show in the spirit of El Día de los Muertos  with the Latino group, The Cuban Cowboys, who perform the open license song, The Devil’s Dance. The cover art is from José Guadalupe Posada (1851–1913). More information about this artist can be found on the podcast website. Now make sure to leave an extra plate of dinner for your deceased loved ones with a trail of rose petals to lead them to the table from the grave during this vibrant holiday celebrating life and death.
