Gruesome Magazine Podcast Year One Co-Host Top 10s

The Gruesome Magazine Podcast hit the electro-magic universe with episode one on January 10, 2018. During our first year, we recorded 48 episodes in which we covered the 2018 Nevermore Film Festival and interviewed Tiffany Arnold and Daniel Kiely of Bong of the Living Dead; director Ben DeLoose of Escape from Dark; and Danielle Harris on the release of her latest film, Inoperable. We also managed to review 131 feature films!

A little over halfway through the year, Rafe Telsch had to bow out as one of our co-hosts due to unavoidable scheduling conflicts, but we hope to find a way to get him back in 2019. We miss you, Rafe!

Naturally, it seemed like the next logical thing to do would be for each of us to create our own Top 10 list of films from the 131 we reviewed. We had a fine batch of movies to review in our first year so it was not an easy task. We all struggled to get the list down to ten, so before we change our minds again (which we surely will), here is the current state of our Top 10s – the films that tripped the individual, cinematic triggers of each co-host. As usual, Jeff couldn’t follow the rules and threw in a couple extra titles in a 3-way tie for 10th, and Rafe chimed in with two of his favorites: Terrifier and The Night of the Virgin. Spoiler alert: Revenge, Terrified, Lowlife, and The Ritual are on all three lists. if you haven’t seen them, what are you waiting for?

Jeff lives smack dab in the middle of the cornfields of Iowa and is a long time horror fan. His first remembered encounters with the genre were The Wizard of Oz, Tarzan gorilla chases, and watching the first broadcast of The Twilight Zone episode, “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge.” While he now qualifies as an old fart, he strives to be an “Old Boy.” Paraphrasing Robert Bloch, he has the heart of a small boy. He keeps it in a jar on his desk. Jeff has written for Horrornews.net and SQ Horror Magazine and co-hosted the SQ Bloodlines podcast. He currently writes for Gruesome Magazine and is co-host of the Decades of Horror The Classic Era and 1970s podcasts.
