Episode 54– Top 10 Horror Films of the 1970′s, Part 1
Despite constantly sharing opposing views on modern horror over at the Official HorrorNews.Net Podcast, Doc Rotten and Santos share a deep rooted love for all things horror in the Seventies. It’s the decade where horror grew up and began to take the genre serious producing huge hits and dozens of classic and influencial horror films. Check out a short list beyond those listed above: Dawn of the Dead, Alien, Phantasm, Last House on the Left and Texas Chainsaw Massacre. But, this is not a podcast about those films, this digs just a little bit deeper.
To tackle the subject, Doc and Santos are picking on film per year to spotlight. They are choosing one film that affected them, made a particular impact, shaping their love for horror films. The two hosts dig the decade so much the conversation went well over length and is being brought to you in two parts. Part one, episode 54, takes on the first five years from 1970 to 1974. Episode 55, coming in one week, is set to contain the latter half of the best decade in horror, the 1970′s. Groovy!
