Monster Men Podcast #3 – The Decaying State of Zombies

OK, I ditched the straw hat and Jack and I got down to business talking about our favorite subject : zombies. George Romero completely rewired our brains and we’ve never recovered. So, grab a shotgun, find a safe haven (preferrably in an abandoned mall) and enjoy.

Hunter Shea is the product of a childhood weened on The Night Stalker, The Twilight Zone and In Search Of. He doesn’t just write about the paranormal – he actively seeks out the things that scare the hell out of people and experiences them for himself. His novels, Forest of Shadows, Evil Eternal , Swamp Monster Massacre , Sinister Entity, Hell Hole, The Waiting and Island of the Forbidden are published through Samhain Publishing’s horror line. Hell Hole was named Horror Novel Reviews #1 horror novel of 2014. His first thriller novel, The Montauk Monster, was released June, 2014 as a Pinnacle paperback, and was named by Publishers Weekly as one of the best reads of the summer. His follow up Pinnacle novel, Tortures of the Damned, a post apocalyptic thriller, will be out July, 2015. That will be followed up by his latest cryptid tale, The Dover Demon, in the fall through Samhain. His horror short story collection, Asylum Scrawls, is available as an e-book, straightjacket not included. Hunter is an amateur cryptozoologist, having written wild, fictional tales about Bigfoot, The Montauk Monster, The Dover Demon and many new creatures to come. A copy of his book, The Montauk Monster, is currently on display in the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, ME. He wrote his first novel with the express desire to work only with editor Don D’Auria at Dorchester (Leisure Horror). He submitted his novel to Don and only Don, unagented, placed on the slush pile. He is proof that dedicated writers can be rescued from no man’s land. He now works with Don, along with several other agents and publishers, having published over ten books in just four years. Hunter is proud to be be one half of the Monster Men video podcast, along with his partner in crime, Jack Campisi. It is one of the most watched horror video podcasts in the world. Monster Men is a light hearted approach to dark subjects. Hunter and Jack explore real life hauntings, monsters, movies, books and everything under the horror sun. They often interview authors, cryptid and ghost hunters, directors and anyone else living in the horror lane. Living with his wonderful family and two cats, he’s happy to be close enough to New York City to get Gray’s Papaya hotdogs when the craving hits. His daughters have also gotten the horror bug, assisting him with research, story ideas and illustrations that can be seen in magazines such as Dark Dossier.

    Awesome. Any good horror fan thinks about how to reinforce a mall… or most any other places they might be in public 🙂

    I enjoyed the remake of Dawn of the Dead (big Modern Family fan). It was fun, and the bleak ending credits was pretty satisfying, as well. Actually gave me nightmares.

    I would agree that we are becoming a little too inundated with zombie stories, but on a lazy sunday afternoon, I can probably watch almost any zombie movie. Will check out the Brian Keene.

    Although I gotta disagree on 28 Weeks later. More of a 28 Days fan myself.

    Fun podcast.

    The new Dawn of the Dead also stars Medium’s Jake Weber.

    Your parents let you see Dawn of the Dead when you were 10, I’m shocked and stunned.

  3. CW says :

    Which is more detrimental to a ten year old…a double feature of Dawn of the Dead & The Kentucky Fried Movie or a double feature of The Exorcist & A Clockwork Orange? I can’t even read the book of a Clockwork Orange, I’m so scarred!

    BTW, been enjoying the podcasts. As far as I’m concerned, Dawn of the Dead (the original) set the standard for the zombie genre. Romero set the bar high and few can compare.

    • Paul D. Dail says :

      Yikes. Did you really got to a double feature of The Exorcist and A Clockwork Orange? I would have to say that double feature would definitely be more detrimental.

      And while I think there have been some good zombie movies outside of Romero’s sphere of influence, I agree that he pretty much is the master.
