Don’t Read The Latin! Episode 62: Rock and Roll Horror!

0 Comments | This entry was posted on Aug 08 2017

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 | This entry was posted on Jul 25 2017

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!

DRtL Episode 59: Favorite Horror Actors!

0 Comments | This entry was posted on Jun 14 2017

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.)

DRtL Episode 58: Crypticon Post-Mortem!

2 Comments | This entry was posted on May 16 2017

Another year, another Crypticon has come and gone! Your horror hosts Michael Montoure and Jennifer Lovely always make attending this Seattle convention a priority, and this year was no exception. This year marks Jennifer’s first appearance at a convention as a panelist!

This episode, we talk about our experiences at the convention, both good and bad. (Mostly good!) We hope you’ll check it out — and we hope you’ll join us at the convention next year!

(There’s not much of a media list this time — we talk briefly about movies and TV we’ve seen lately, and those are listed below.)

DRtL Episode 57: Favorite Directors!

0 Comments | This entry was posted on May 01 2017

Hello, Latin Club! If you’ve been following us for a while, then you know we’ve had our episodes in the past about Wes Craven and John Carpenter — but there are so many other horror movie directors whose work we avidly follow. We don’t necessarily have a full episode’s worth of things to say about each and every one of them, so we thought, why not do a grab-bag of everyone who’s work we admire? Join us as we discuss our Favorite Directors!

(The Media List for this episode is a little spotty — we mentioned a lot of movies very briefly in passing that did not make it into the Media List, but hopefully everything we discuss in any detail should be listed here.)

As always, let us know what you think in the comments, and please take a minute to rate and review us on iTunes to let your fellow horror fans know we’re worth checking out. Thanks!

¡Hola! ¿Cómo te va todo? Welcome to the latest episode of Don’t Read the Latin, where we talk about horror movies in Spanish! (And a handful of movies that are in English, but were made in Spain.) Get ready to turn on your subtitles and explore some of the best horror that the Spanish language has to offer.

Also, Jen tells us about some of the additional channels available on Amazon Prime Video, including Shudder and the British television channel Acorn TV, and about her days back when she worked in a video store! All this, the return of Jen’s Documentary Corner, and much, much more.

DRtL Episode 55: Back From The Dead!

4 Comments | This entry was posted on Mar 13 2017

Hello, horror fiends! Did you have a good New Year’s? And, uhhh, a good Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Chinese New Year, Groundhog Day, Valentine’s Day, and Mardi Gras — ? So, yeah, it’s been a little while since our last episode, is what we’re saying, here. Between Michael being out of town a lot, and Jen losing her job, her house, and then her Grandmother in rapid succession, there’s been a hell of a lot of so-called “real life” cutting into our podcasting time.

But now we’re Back From The Dead, and what better way to celebrate that than with an episode about horror movies where people return from the grave? We’re not talking ghosts, or vampires, or zombies — we’vddde done episodes on all of those already. We’re talking all the other revenants of every type and description.

Along the way, we talk about Letterboxd, a site for keeping track of the movies you watch; the late, lamented iMDB message boards; the critical role of politics in the horror genre; and the online horror movie offerings of services like Shudder and Fandor. All that and more is waiting for you in the latest episode, so stuff it into your eager brainmeats, let us know what you think in the comments, and as always, be sure to rate and review us on iTunes to let your fellow horror fans know we’re worth checking out. It’s great to be back — thanks for listening, and we will be back in two weeks.

DRtL Episode 54: Our 2016 Review!

0 Comments | This entry was posted on Dec 27 2016

Well, 2016 has certainly been a year that most of us will be glad to put behind us, but there were some pretty damn fine horror movies that came out this year, and we’re here to talk about them! Join your hosts Michael Montoure and Jennifer Lovely and their special guests Handsome Boyfriend Jim, Jeff Harris, and Jillian Venters as we run down our top ten lists for the year! (Well — not everyone had a top ten list, strictly speaking. But you’ll see what we mean when you hear the episode.)

This was kind of a strange year for horror, as we had several good solid movies but no real stand-outs, and no real fun thrill-rides. But still, there are some gems you might have missed, and we’ll walk you through them.

Thanks for listening in 2016, and many many thanks to our listeners who have rated our podcast on iTunes and left reviews! The more reviews and ratings we have, the easier it is for people to find us. If you enjoy listening to Don’t Read the Latin and you haven’t rated us yet, please take a minute to do so to help us reach more people in 2017 and beyond. Happy New Year!

DRtL Episode 53: Horror Anthologies!

0 Comments | This entry was posted on Dec 06 2016

Welcome back to Don’t Read the Latin, as Michael and Jennifer delve into the world of Horror Anthologies — only to realize that they don’t actually like them very much. But, as always, we accentuate the positive, and concentrate on talking about the ones we do like. So if you like your horror movies in bite-sized chunks, this is the episode for you!

We also end up talking about reboots, why we actually like them, and why they work so well on television. Check it out!
