Episode 55– Top 10 Horror Films of the 1970′s, Part 2
Despite constantly having 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 one 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 two, episode 55, takes on the second five years from 1975 to 1979. Groovy!
