Episode 1 January 2009: Fulci fun with reviews of City of the Living Dead and Zombie
In this first episode John and Ed talk about a couple of their favorite Fulci flicks and gloat over the impending Steelers Super Bowl victory over the Arizona Cardinals. Spoilers... we weren't wrong! We also spoil the next show and our cool first interview. Let me know if you guys dig this one and I'll keep posting them.
Episode 2 February 2009: The William Girdler episode with a Carol Speed interview
For the second episode of the Gutmunchers podcast we talked about a couple great William Girdler directed classics Grizzly and Abby. Grizzly was a "Jawsploitation" flick and Abby was, shall we say, heavily influenced by The Exorcist. So much so somebody got sued! And if all of this isn't enough for you we also have an interview with Abby herself actress Carol Speed.
Episode 3 March 2009: The Bill Rebane episode
This show featured our second interview when I got to sit down with regional filmmaker Bill Rebane of such movies as The Giant Spider Invasion and The Demons of Ludlow, both of which we also reviewed on the episode. Also good friend Steve Benningfield stopped by for the first time, Ed Demko made an appearance, and Jason moved to Japan.
This time around we have a staff meeting with the contributors John Shatzer, Ed Demko, and Steve Benningfield to talk about our favorite slasher movies. All of the usual franchises are discussed as well as a few movies that you might have forgotten about or maybe never even heard of.
Episode 5 April 2009: The Spring 2009 Cinema Wasteland report
Wasteland is a convention that I've been attending for many years. This show from April 2009 was our first attempt at a live event. Recorded from my hotel room during the weekend of the convention the usual suspects show up and some new faces make an appearance. So kick back and enjoy this blast from the past when we could actually gather and hang out in person.
Episode 6 April 2009: 42nd Street Pete interview and movie reviews
Pete is one of my favorite people. He lived the Grindhouse and was there at the dawning of the home video market with VHS. He shares some great stories with us and it is a fun listen. Ed and I also cover Criminally Insane (aka. Crazy Fat Ethel) and Zombie Holocaust.
Episode 7 May 2009: Kill Bill volume 1 and 2
No interview on this episode. Instead we talk about Kill Bill volume 1 and 2. This was back when I still liked Tarantino... before I realized what a hack he is. Ed Demko stops by to talk video stores and Steve Benningfield pops in for another installment of Sensei Cinema. All in all it is a solid show.

In this episode Ed and John talk to the late Chuck Sellier director of Silent Night Deadly Night as well as an integral part of the old Schick Sunn company that made those killer documentaries. The pair also review Fright Night and Killer Klowns from Outer Space. John also tells his Killer Klowns story about seeing it in the theater.
Episode 9 June 2009: The Blue Underground retrospectiveIn this episode John and Ed take a look at all things awesome about what was at the time the absolute best genre company, Blue Underground. It is a real love fest as we covered all sorts of goodies from the early days of Genre DVDs.
