Ice King, Adventure Time

Audio Blog #41

Yup yup yup. Its time for some Halloween eve fun with the Allengator! This time I talk about horror films, specifically talking about horror vs. gore. Take a listen and see what you think.

One series I forgot to mention was the Coffin Joe series. It is Brazillian horror, but it also has some gore factor. Its just another hellspawn wanting to procreate with women. Seriously? Most horror films seem to want to include satan as much as possible. Something more original mayhaps?

Also, I attribute the gore trend partially to color and technology. Since the advent of color tv, horror films just want to drench every scene in blood it seems.

So as I asked in the audio blog:

What do you consider to be horror?
What, if anything, are you planning to watch on Halloween, horror-wise?
Does horror = gore?
Any other thoughts or opinions?

Sound off below! Let me know what you think!
