DRtL is back after its bye week to bring you more horror goodness. This time Jennifer is joined by Handsome Boyfriend Jim to talk about how to share the movies you love with someone you love. Jen and Jim have a lot of common ground, but also some divergent tastes in films, so if you’ve ever wondered about how to broach the subject with your better half, this one’s for you!

Hello, Don’t Read the Latineers! This episode is about horror movies set in asylums: open or closed, haunted or populated. Joining me this time once again is Rhias Hall of The Villain Edit. It’s one of my favorite genres of horror movies!

(A note from Handsome Boyfriend Jim: The video game they misidentify as “Homecoming” and “Home Again” is “Gone Home”. For some reason Jen can never, ever remember the title of it.)

Hello Don’t Read the Latin fans!

Thank you for joining us for our latest episode ROCK AND ROLL HORROR! Where I promise not to call Stephen King an asshole but we will share at length all our favorite horror movies with a side of metal! This episode contains these guest stars: Jillian Venters of Gothic Charm School, Jeff Harris of Fanboy News Network, Handsome Boyfriend Jim of Fire When Ready, and last but absolutely not least, Rhias Hall of  The Villain Edit.

And like Lemmy said, “It’s fast and it’s aggressive and it’s rebellious and their parents hate it, which has always been the mark of good rock and roll. If your parents don’t like it, it’s good.”

Don’t Read The Latin! Episode 61: Witches!

0 Comments | Posted on Jul 25 2017 in Episodes

Welcome back! This episode marks a new, exciting time for Don’t Read the Latin, as Michael Montoure has decided to step back from co-hosting for now as he has a lot on his plate at the moment. Jennifer Lovely is still happily here, though, discussing horror movies and her love of them, and each episode will have a rotating cast of co-hosts joining her. There will be many of the voices you’ve heard in previous episodes, and we can all look forward to some new ones joining the mix, too!

In this episode she is joined by Jillian Venters of Gothic Charm School (http://www.gothic-charm-school.com/) and they are discussing witches and witchcraft, although we know it’s simply taboo!

Onward to an all-new era of Don’t Read the Latin adventures!

A Message From Montoure — Stepping Back For A Bit

0 Comments | Posted on Jul 25 2017 in Site News

Hey everyone, Michael Montoure here. It looks like there’s a new episode all finished that should be going live today, and I just wanted to take a minute to let you know that I’m not one of your hosts this time, and unfortunately, I’m not sure exactly when I will be back on the show.

I have a lot more going on in my personal life than I did when we first started the podcast, and it’s been getting more difficult for me to find time to sit down with Jennifer and record new episodes. Worse still, I’ve been having a harder time managing to sit down and watch any new horror movies in the past several months, so, ultimately, I feel like I don’t have a lot to say about current horror at this point.

So I am taking some time off, and leaving you in Jennifer’s more-than-capable hands. She’ll be joined by a rotating cast of guest hosts, many of whom you’ve heard on the show before, and it’s going to be great.

I’ll be back before you know it, and in the meantime, I’ll get this work-life balance thing figured out, catch up on the latest horror films, and with any luck, get back in the swing of writing a little horror fiction of my own.

See you at the movies!

DRtL Episode 59: Favorite Horror Actors!

0 Comments | Posted on Jun 14 2017 in Episodes

Welcome back to Don’t Read the Latin, where in this episode, we’re talking about our favorite horror movie actors — the scream queens, sinister villains, and creepy little character actors who populate the films we love. These are the people we love to watch over and over again, the performances that can get us into the theater every time. We’re sure you’ll know and love many of these screen icons as well, and hope that you’ll learn some new names you should be looking out for, as well. Let us know if there’s anyone else you think we should have mentioned!

(Thanks for your patience with our slight delay in getting this episode to you, and we ask your patience with the weird little pop-and-hiss that crept into the audio of this episode. It’s pretty mystifying — we used the exact same audio setup as we have for the past couple of episodes, and we didn’t have this trouble then. Perhaps you could pretend we’re having this conversation while sitting next to a crackling campfire? Or not. Suit yourselves.)

Please stand by

Hey, everyone — just wanted to let you know that another episode of Don’t Read the Latin is on the way soon, but there will be a slight delay. We have recorded a new episode, but Michael hasn’t had a chance to edit it yet — and he just lost a much-loved cat due to illness yesterday, so it’s going to take him a while to recover and get back to work. Please join us here next Monday, when we’ll be going live with our Favorite Horror Actors discussion. Thanks for your patience.
