Can you tell me some of your absolute favorite horror movies? Also, are there any that you find yourself watching again and again?
Rob Dimension: I am a huge fan of John Carpenter’s Halloween and George A Romero’s Dawn of the Dead. Dawn of the Dead was one of the first films I bought myself on VHS. When you only have one film, at the time I watched it a bunch. I watch Killer Klowns from Outer Space a lot, it’s so fun. Plus, not horror but sci-fi related, I watch a lot of the older Japanese shows like Ultraman and Johnny Sokko and his Flying Robot. Plus, I watch at least one or two Godzilla films per week.
John Cannon: I am a huge fan of Demon Wind, Hellraiser, Tremors, and Critters and while I can watch them repeatedly I find myself watching the 1940s-'50s style of films like Creature From the Black Lagoon (which is my all time favorite), It Came From Beneath The Sea, The Blob, and The Deadly Mantis over and over again. I tend to gravitate towards those films because they were the foundations of what we have today. It was a time when people were actually scared and it didn’t take much, the imagination was so much more alive back then.
Pigamortis Wrex: Okay, get comfortable. Dawn of the Dead (original and remake), Bad Taste, Dead Alive, NotLD (original and Savini remake) Maniac, all the Friday the13ths, Tremors (all), Blacula, Frankenhooker, Brain Damage, Humongous, Blackenstein, Godzilla vs. Destroyah, anything by William Castle. I am a horror/sci-fi junkie. I will watch pretty much anything in the rubber monster/slasher/gore/exploitation/supernatural genre. God bless Netflix's "Watch Now" feature.
If you could have any guest of your choosing appear on Late Night at the Horror Hotel, be it someone who is still active or someone who has left this earth, who would you choose and why?
Rob Dimension: Vincent Price, I look at him as the voice of horror. To me, he is a true horror icon. The way he carried himself and his persona were fabulous. George A Romero would be my second pick, he created a genre that exploded. Without him, we would never have the late night discussions on whether we could survive a Zombie Apocalypse.
