Ep. 193 - Best Horror Films of the 1990s

• October 24th, 2014

Did the 1990s suck for horror movies? Eh... kinda. But The B-Movies Podcast is highlighting the best horror movies of the 1990s anyway in the latest, all-new episode!

Join hosts William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold as they run down their picks for the ten best horror movies of the 1990s, and argue about what qualifies as a horror movie in the first place (the 1990s were a weird time for the genre). Until Scream came along and brought about the nouveau slasher boom, horror movies were floundering to find an identity in the decade that didn't seem to be afraid of anything. But there are a few classics and bonkers oddities that deserve a special mention during the Halloween season.

Also on this week's B-Movies Podcast, William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold review the brand new movie releases OuijaJohn WickForce Majeure and VHS: Viral. Two of them are great. One of them sucks. One them's just alright. Find out which ones are which!

And attention, Los Angeles residents! The B-Movies Podcast will be hosting a midnight screening of the 1999 sci-fi comedy Galaxy Quest at the Nuart Theatre on November 21, 2014. Hosts William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold will be in attendance to introduce the film and give out some really cool prizes. Tickets are already on sale (and selling fast), so be sure to pre-order yours ASAP!

Special Guest: David Hayter

• October 22nd, 2014

He wrote X-MenX2: X-Men United and Watchmen. He starred in Guyver: Dark Hero and The Castle of Cagliostro. He provides the voice of "Solid Snake" in the Metal Gear Solid video games. He wrote and directed the new wolfman movie Wolves starring Lucas Till (Havok from X-Men: First Class) and Jason Momoa (Aquaman). And now, David Hayter is the latest guest on CraveOnline's B-Movies Podcast!

Hosts William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold sit David Hayter down on this bonus episode, and listen to him explain the difference between werewolves and wolfmen, and how he got a huge cast for his independent horror feature. He also explains how the script for the first X-Men movie came about, and the real reason Dougray Scott had to drop out of playing Wolverine, paving the way for Hugh Jackman.

David Hater also talks about developing Watchmen with Paul Greengrass and explains who was originally being sought to star in that version of the movie. He also reveals that Darren Aronofsky is responsible for the biggest difference between the movie and the comic book series, a controversial decision that was made over a single weekend.

And for Metal Gear Solid fans, David Hayter also leaves an outgoing message in character as Solid Snake, but only for people named "Jim." Jims around the world, take note!
