EP. 16: Horror In The Aisles

A chill in the midnight air begins to turn summer leaves into that familiar orange palette. Which could only mean one thing: Halloween approaches! On tonight’s show we learn that Halloween can be found even in the simplest location: Your local grocery store. We discuss candy, masks, monsters, and pumpkins all strung together by classic Halloween commercials to get you into that monster mood. So turn us up as you decorate your abode and plan your fearsome festivities. Just remember you bring the tricks and we’ll promise to bring the treats.

Shock Session: Deadly Candy

Between the dark days of our regular episodes come Shock Sessions: Brief horror related topics individually produced and presented by our horrific hosts Chris or Eric.

Tonight:

Two things that often get buried: Facts and Bodies.

Halloween is that special time of year where fear is something to behold, but it’s supposed to be through plastic skeletons, severed latex limbs, and ghost stories to tell in the dark. Not through the treats that come with tricking. Tales of black-hearted madmen doling out poisoned Halloween candy to unsuspecting little tikes have been around for decades. So let’s dig deeper into the legend, the threat that comes with it, and find out if we’ve sanitized Halloween for safety because of a “danger” that’s as transparent as the ghost on your front lawn.

Ep. 15: Sink or Float

It’s an unusually stormy September night here at the crypt. And with that, we take advantage of the atmosphere by paying an early visit to a certain killer clown. With an advanced screening of Stephen King’s It fresh in our skulls we discuss if one of the most anticipated horror films of the year sinks or floats. Not only that, but we also share a brief history of Maxx Fx: one of the lesser known horror collectables that died before it was born. So remember to bundle up in your best raincoat and keep away from your nearest drains as the It’s Alive! Podcast once again broadcasts from beyond the grave!

Shock Session: The Sacramento Vampire

Between the dark days of our regular episodes come Shock Sessions: Brief horror related topics individually produced and presented by our horrific hosts Chris or Eric. 

Tonight: 

The vampire. One of horror’s most popular subjects. What draws so many people to its vast mythology? The fantasy? The violence? The romance? Whatever makes the tales of the vampire so engaging may not simply be one answer but it’s clear that it makes for great fiction.

But what happens if, in some cases, it isn’t fiction?

There was a time that Sacramento, California believed that a vampire lived amongst them. And we look back at the shocking details on the chilling crimes that this monster committed.
