    • Michael D Johnston

      Awesome, guys! Keep it up! I’ve been listing since ep. 5 and I love it. I went back and listened to the first five as well 😉

    • RobertGalluzzo

      Hey Chris – AJ’s my best friend. And we like having him on the show. Sorry you don’t like when he’s on. Just feel free to just skip those episodes then. Thanks for listening!

      • Dennis Atherton

        I love AJ on the show, never too much! I don’t understand the above comment 🙁
        When I was a kid I was taught if I have nothing nice to say then say nothing, I don’t understand negativity. Urrrggghh

    • Christopher D Wellborn

      What the F are you talking about? Did you listen to the same show I did? He was hilarious! I also met him at SXSW one year and the guy is a sweetheart of a guy. I don’t get some people.

      • Dennis Atherton

        AJ is an Awsome guest. This shows You can’t please everyone. He’s been in some fantastic films too. The rich mans Ryan Reynolds

        • Dennis Atherton

          Just to explain the joke for people who have not listened to the podcast. Ryan Reynolds was jokingly called the poor mans AJ Bowen 😉

          Great Beard too

  • Christopher D Wellborn

    Fantastic, guys! Just fantastic…Nothing else to say. I really appreciate what you guys are doing.

  • Michael D Johnston

    GREAT podcast! Very fun, informative and they give great lists of obscure flcks to check out (50% I’ve never even heard of). Love it!

  • Marc Pilvinsky

    This is my favorite podcast, by far. But I think you guys should carry on with a replacement when one of you is out of town. I can’t go two weeks without Killer POV. Please!

  • Jennifer Lovely

    The latest episode with David J. Schow was just wonderful. You always bring on the best guests. The love of the genre is completely evident. Thanks!

  • Sledge Hammer

    deadpit.com is another podcast i listen to every week .

  • Sledge Hammer

    i also follow twih,inside horror,and now killer pov.just sucks everytime i find one of kelrics shows,its gone.except this one for now i think?

  • Dale Baines

    Hi Team KP, I came over your podcast as a result of Bloodcast and I’m really enjoying the chemistry between the three of you so far. I still have a good number of podcasts to catch up on, but the three of you are awesome. I love how knowledgeable you guys are about the genre and your very organic interactions with one another. So far, I actually enjoy the podcasts where it’s just the three of you, without guests, more so than some of the guests you’ve had on. To be totally honest, there have been a few instances where I had to just jump off after you brought on the guest because while some of them are important or interesting figures in the genre industry, good podcasters they do not make. Lol, sorry. It’s especially frustrating when the topic you guys are talking about is something I’m really interested in hearing your viewpoints; for example the In Defense of episode and most recently, the Mystic Party episode. The In Defense of episode was just a clusterf–k…lol, you guys turned into The View after a while and I couldn’t even make out what you were saying (loved how poor Rebekah tried to rein things in but to no avail), and then oddly enough, at the same time, one of your guests seemed to be on a different wavelength (or room) than the rest of you guys since every time he spoke, the whole thing would come to a screeching halt because his pace was just way off. It was crazy. Again, I’m not done with all your podcasts so hopefully these gang ups do not happen too often. With the Mystic Party episode, I LOVED the topic you were talking about, the supernatural, and that Mystic Party podcast sounds like something I would normally be interested in, but any desire I might have had to listen to their podcast was quickly squashed as I listened to Zane. The affectation he puts in his voice made it so unbelievably difficult to hear him AND it just totally threw off the rhythm of the entire episode. I say affectation because he sounded a little less odd toward the end, as if he dropped the persona. I’m sure Zane is a nice guy, and since I’ve never heard of them before this, maybe that’s the selling point of their podcast, I don’t know, but it was just sooo not my cup of tea. On the other hand, I really liked Brea. Anyway, I know you guys don’t have control over how your guests perform, and I might very well be alone in my opinions, but I just wanted to reiterate, I enjoy the three of you alone just fine and I would not mind if you just go it alone all the time. I think you guys are doing a great job. I hope you re-tackle the two topics I mentioned above again sometime in the future with just the three of you (perhaps using a different take so it’s still fresh). Thanks for the entertainment! Going back to catching up; please pardon the thesis.

  • Paula Haifley

    Whenever I need to do chores that I can’t stand, I listed to Killer POV. When my commute sucks, I listen to Killer POV. Killer POV, the laughs, the thought-provoking discussions, the suggestions for more obscure films I’ve never seen, the fantastic guests and juicy behind the scenes stories, all help me get through things that I’d really rather stab myself in the eye than do. That’s how good of a podcast it is. When my mother was going to visit and I had to clean the whole house, I listened to two episodes back to back. Thanks to Killer POV, my mother no longer thinks I’m a slob. I love this podcast.

    • Awesome, Paula! So glad you enjoy it and that the show has the power to get you through those mundane moments of your day. Cheers!

  • Shea

    You guys, I’m a full blown Killer POV addict. I started with episode one casual style. Like, let’s go on a date, Killer POV. Now, I’m on episode 9 and I’m sort of committed. My friends and family tell me it’s too fast, but I don’t care! They don’t know Killer POV like I do! You’re the leader of the pack.

    • Never listen to family and friends! Hahaha

  • Dennis Atherton

    I have been listening since the column was posted on Fthismovie by Patrick Bromley and im a big fan. I just bought Possesion because of Elric and im watching it this weekend. Im enjoying catching up with all the podcasts I missed. Great work gang

  • Dennis Atherton

    Ok time for some truth, I have to admit this now and get it off my chest, then hopefully we can all feel better, I’m no good at keeping secrets, it’s eating me alive,

    I am an addict!

    Phew, I feel better now its out there, I am addicted to the Podcasts, may they never stop, hurry up with the next one, I need my fix 😉

    Great work everyone

    • Haha, good on ya, Dennis for expressing that… Being honest about your addiction is the first step! Just don’t go trying to seek treatment!

  • Dennis Atherton

    Its gonna be a long lonely friday in work today with no new podcast to listen too 😉

  • seandansberger

    Love the show. I’m a loyal weekly listener, and at this point I’ve listened to all of the episodes.

    I just ran across this article on rogerebert.com by critic Jim Emerson (http://www.rogerebert.com/scanners/101-102-movies-you-must-see-before) and it gave me an idea for a request.

    Jim put together this list of movies he considered to be essential viewing in order to be “film-literate”. The idea is not to pick the “best” movies or his “favorite” movies, but movies he thought every movie watcher needs to view in order to have any kind of informed discussion about movies in general. Along the same lines, do you have a list of horror movies you consider to be essential viewing to be “horror-literate”? To me, the list should include a mix of movies from different sub-genres, directors, prominent actors, and ones that best (or first) demonstrate the guiding tropes of the genre. In other words, If I’m 25 and have never watched a horror movie, what would I have to see to even begin to have a conversation with you about the genre?

    Keep up the good work!

    • Great idea, sean. We may have to convince the gang to incorporate that into a podcast or something!

  • Aaron Dries

    Killer POV is the absolute greatest. Every episode feels like the listener is right there in the room, clinking beers, talking about things they know and love. A horror fan’s dream. Spread the word. This trio has earned it.

    • Glad you enjoy it, Aaron. We agree! Keep listening, it’s only going to get better!

    • RobertGalluzzo

      Before you know it, YOU’LL be on the show! 😉 Glad to have you on episode 100!

  • Jose

    Cant wait for fridays because I know its time to listen to Killer POV. I want to thank them for sharing there love and passion for movies with us. Thats why this podcast has such a loyal loving fan base because we care for them its like listening to your friends talk about horror movies every week whats better than that. Thank You GeekNation this show is something special.

    • Our pleasure, Jose. We feel the same about the show! Thanks for your support, and keep the comments going!

  • BobScott

    Love the show and, after checking out a few select episodes (Lance Henriksen! David Schow! Scream Factory!) I’ve been working my way back. Lots of fun, interesting guests with inside perspectives. I love that Rob, Rebekah, and Elric aren’t just fans but also bring educated expertise with filmmaking, Holywood, marketing, and more to elevate the conversation beyond simply “I liked this ’cause it was cool and scary.” But I also love that they’re not afraid to champion movies for no other reason than “I liked this ’cause it was cool and scary.” Glad I found this podcast.

    • Thanks so much, BobScott. Glad you’re enjoying it! We also love comments, so please come back to chat it up with us.

      • BobScott

        Well, I’ll say this. Rebekah mentioned Monster Dog during the Werewolf episode. I’m a long-time Alice Cooper fan and was a completist for a long time and I sought and obtained Monster Dog during that period. It’s pretty horrible. As a movie, it’s a complete turkey and I would only recommend it to an Alice Cooper completist. He does a couple songs for this movie that were otherwise unobtainable for a long time (they eventually came out as part of a box-set, naturally). They’re pretty good songs if you like AC’s early 80s material. Given the amount of quality movies and TV available now, not to mention other interests in life (kids, anybody?), Monster Dog isn’t worth the time.

  • Jess_Hicks

    Killer POV is the only horror podcast I listen to consistently. They are the perfect mix of fanboy/girl and intellectual banter on my favorite topics. I’m currently working through all of the previous episodes and a recurring question they bring up is how do younger fans find movies now without mom and pop or brick and mortar video stores? For me, I find movies, new and old, mostly from this podcast (I’m 25 for a frame of reference).

  • Matt Mills

    I love your show. I did have a question – have you done an episode on best 3d horror? I’m upgrading my TV and I’d like some horror 3d Bluray recommendations – apologies if you’ve done a show on this… Thanks!

    • RobertGalluzzo

      Welcome, Matt! And yes! We did an episode on 3D way, way back for number 48 with Todd Farmer. We should probably do an update soon but in the meantime, check it! http://geeknation.com/podcasts/killer-pov-ep-48-our-bloody-valentine-in-3d/

      • Matt Mills

        Awesome!! I’m slowly working through the back catalog.. I’m in the process of setting up a projector in my basement and I can’t wait to watch some 3d horror movies on it..

        You all are the best, keep up the great work! There’s nothing better than tossing you guys on while I work.

  • Eirik S

    Fairly new listener from Norway here. Love your show. I’m playing catch up, and just listened to episode 93. You guys mentioned “Betamax” and specifically Scooter McCrae, and it surprised me that you hadn’t really heard of him before. In the early to mid nineties there was a micro budget, shot on video, horror movie “movement” that got a good bit of coverage in Fango and Gorezone, and McCrae’s “Shatter Dead” was one of the main titles. It’s a zombie movie with better ideas than execution, but it’s definetly interesting. Other titles worth a look from this period is Leif Jonker’s “Darkness”, Howard S Berger and Matthew Howe’s “Original Sins” and Pericles Lewnes’ “Redneck Zombies”

    • RobertGalluzzo

      Always love learning new things and getting title recommendations to seek out! Thanks for the tip and thanks for joining us!

  • Ricky Morgan

    Just wanted to say, I have been a fan for a year now, caught up on all the episodes by the time I met you guys in Texas Frightmare, and I’ve been looking at other podcast to fill the gap between episodes, and Killer POV is the BEST BY FAR. Can’t find anything that really compares. I recommend this show all the time. Thanks to all three of you.

    • RobertGalluzzo

      Holy smokes. Such kind words, Ricky! And pleasure to meet you in Texas. You rocked trivia! Thanks for joining us every week!

      • Ricky Morgan

        Hey, it is what it is. Best show.

  • Jim Parsons

    Hey there. Rebekah, if you’re looking for films about old people then “Dendera” is a crazy/great one. Its about this Japanese village which takes all its residence up a mountain and abandons them to die when they are 70. The story follows all these old women who have survived and training themselves up as an army to get revenge on the villagers. The youngest of these warriors is of course 70. So far not so horror, weird but not horror. Then this giant bear shows up… Anyway, a bit obscure but kind of amazing. I saw it at the London Film Festival a few years ago. I see you can get it onDVD at Amazon.

  • Barry Wood

    • RobertGalluzzo

      Thanks for joining us, Barry! Those are all excellent recommendations. I think some of them have been mentioned? But it’s a good reminder to bring them up for future episodes! All my best!

      • Dennis Atherton

        Another vote for Turbo Kid, I think Rob G will like it. Its more Comedy Horror, its got a good vibe about it and Michael Ironside is perfectly cast

  • Matthew Clark

    Hi KillerPOV. I just wanted to say a massive Thank You for all the hard work you put in to the podcast. I’m a relatively new listener from Sheffield in the UK and I’m steadily ploughing through the earlier episodes on my commute to and from work.

    I grew up watching and loving horror movies from an early age and very quickly became a horror movie obsessive, waiting for the latest horror release to be delivered at the video shop so I could be the first to rent it and then watch it as many times as I could within the 24hr rental period. I kind of fell out of love with horror films and cinema in general during the late 90’s and 2000’s for many reasons but in the last couple of years horror has been insidiously creeping back under my skin.

    Because of the Killer POV podcast I have discovered many new films that would never have been on my radar and rediscovered some forgotten classics.

    Thanks again and keep up the good work. You guys are awesome.

    • RobertGalluzzo

      Wow, what a wonderful message to discover on our page today! Many thanks for jumping on board Matthew! We appreciate it and welcome you to the conversation! Cheers!

  • chris hill

    Hey Guys, glad you checked out iZombie – fun show. Let Elric know Rose McIver the actress that plays the titular cute zombie on the show is a Kiwi (from New Zealand)

  • Dennis Atherton

    Just wanted to say Thank You for a great year of podcasting and Horror talk, I look forward every week to the show and its always worth the wait, I am stoked on Rob and Bekah moving to BH and being a part of horror film making and the Blumhouse website columns, and hopefully Elric will get some traction on BLACK SUNRISE (Big shout out) next year, Merry Christmas gang, best wishes for 2016


  • Alex Bowley

    The only horror podcast you need to listen to. informed, educated, sweary fun 🙂

  • Rosa Pantoja

    I only recently discovered killer POV podcast, but it is such a great listen. I am a horror movie fan, but admit am not as well-versed as others. It is a great way to learn about indie movies, classics and niche films that I would otherwise never discover. Thank you for all of the great episodes and to geeknation for giving us so many hours of horror movie bliss.

  • Sledge Hammer

    why the hell cant i got back beyond the village of the damned ep?

  • Danilo Corci

    Just discovered it now. Great
