That’s it – your wacky Horror Etc co-hosts have finally gone ’round the bend’, and are heading to the asylum… was there ever any doubt?
On this week’s episode of the podcast, Ted and Tony approach the subject of what it is that attracts horror film makers and ghost story enthusiasts to the crumbling structures of forgotten asylums. From Bedlam to Danvers State to Riverview, these massive edifices housed the mentally ill (or in many tragic instances, those unfairly deemed so) and were houses of great suffering, both internally and externally. They were also places where many patients were cruelly subjected to experimental and extreme medical procedures, and every one of these institutions seem to have a plethora of ghost stories attached to them. This week we will visit a few of these infamous asylums, and also look back on the abundant history of asylum-based horror films.
It’s not all padded cells and electro-shock therapy however. This week we make every attempt to offend certain nationalities, Tony has a mild breakdown of his own in a rant worthy of Kings Town Ted, and Ted gives us his thoughts on the new Robocop remake. A generous portion of the ‘cast served up piping hot for you this week… bon appetit!
