Slashers and Robots with Robert Geronimo – Nights 12/3/2020

Forget the news, forget #SnyderWatch, it’s time to talk slashers! Loveable, bloodthirsty, teen stalking, serial killers are this episode’s Monster of the Week. It’s not all horror films, though, because we’re also joined by comic book writer/artist Robert Geronimo.

Robert discusses his ongoing comic series Blood Realm (hear our original review of Blood Realm Vol. 1 back on Grawlix Podcast #88). Robert also talks about his new graphic novel, WIREHEAD, which features a cybernetic slasher stalking teens in the Pocono Mountains. You’ll be surprised by which slasher flicks Robert drew inspiration from and his take on Terminator being one of them.

Then we segue into the Monster of the Week segment. Jesse digs Richard Stanley’s Hardware out of the sand dunes, Melanie crashes the sausage fest that is Dude Bro Party Massacre III, and Randy rings up the forgotten 80’s grocery store slasher Intruder. Enjoy!

Originally streamed live December 3rd, 2020 via Facebook Live, Twitch, and YouTube.
