THE LAST KNOCK presents: Interview with Greg Palko

The Last Knock

Greg Palko’s a graphic designer and art director with a different way of looking at the world – horror or otherwise. To learn why his movie posters, book covers, flyers, and more, stand out, listen in from his hidden horror homestead at an undisclosed New Jersey location – which is a horror museum for certain! And you’ll find out what it means to be “Palko-ed”!

Don’t forget to connect with Greg Palko whether you need some killer art or not. You’ll find him on Twitter and at his engaging website, Palko Designs.

BONUS! Here’s one of Palko’s most recent pieces:

THE LAST KNOCK presents: JACK GOES HOME on the TRAIN TO BUSAN

The Last Knock

It’s another Horror Double-header: Jack Goes Home and Train to Busan. We’re sure you’ve heard of the latter, but poor Jack hasn’t gotten his due. We’ll give you the low down, the high points, and more as we discuss this offbeat pair from a heady psychological horror to a zombie disaster on a KTX. So kick back, relax, and enjoy the train ride to Busan with Jack as your passenger. No tickets necessary – but don’t even think of jumping for it because we’re crushing it at 187 mph (300 kph).

THE LAST KNOCK presents: Hodgepodge of Horror IX

The Last Knock

No, Billy and Jonny aren’t trying to catch up to the Super Bowl type numbers, but they are getting there. With the ninth installment of “Hodgepodge of Horror” they travel the realms of horror cinema from Eduardo Sanchez’s Altered to Kate Beckinsale in Underworld: Blood Wars – with some intriguing films in between.

So kick back, relax, indulge, and check off your  horror list about what to watch, and what to avoid like a zombie virus.

THE LAST KNOCK presents: Macabre Movies 2017

The Last Knock

 

What does 2017 have in store for the horror fan? Well, Billy and Jonny take a look at the year ahead to uncover upcoming macabre movies from The Blackcoats Daughter and XX to Psychopaths and Rock, Paper, Dead. But wait! There’s more! The year will bring many a sequel as well as remakes, and we’ll look at them today.

Billy apologizes for the occasional cough and for feeling a bit out of it – thanks to the damn flu. But the show must go on, and Billy’s happy he wasn’t patient zero for the zombie virus.

THE LAST KNOCK presents: DOG SOLDIERS

The Last Knock

This is a different episode of THE LAST KNOCK, because Dog Soldiers has been the emergency episode on standby since 2014. Yes, that means while Jonny Numb hunts stillborn monster babies in Mexico, Billy Crash is still knee deep in boxes to unpack in Seattle.

But have no fear because Dog Soldiers is on the menu, as it was served to an audience at the Mid-Atlantic Popular & American Culture Association Fall Conference in Philadelphia. Billy Crash, as his alter evil, William D. Prystauk, presents his review of the film during a Horror Panel helmed by Lisa Miller of Pace University. Afterwards, he discusses the film, werewolves, and other creepy crawlies with the audience. Granted, it’s difficult to hear the MAPACA crowd at times after the initial presentation, which means it’s okay to bail after the first fifteen minutes or so. Please see the kid chewing someone else’s nails at the ticket stand for a refund. Otherwise, enjoy the hairy Dog Soldiers journey.

Billy and Jonny will be back at it next week with an all new episode of horror hijinks and macabre madness…

Don’t forget to weigh in with your comments. Billy Crash and Jonny Numb love to respond because they don’t get out much – unless it’s keeping the zombie hordes at bay, or Michael Bay, or BAE. Whatever.

THE LAST KNOCK presents: Those We Lost

The Last Knock

For many of us, 2016 could easily be the “Year of the Reaper” from an entertainment standpoint. We lost many souls who worked and trailblazed in front of and behind the camera. Here, we not only look at the big names of horror who left us, but those you may not even recognize.

Our very best wishes to the friends, the families, and the fans who lost those in horror who made the genre great.

THE LAST KNOCK presents: Relocation Horror

The Last Knock

“Moving sucks,” seems to be the cry from those who must pick up all the crap in their lives and relocate. There are services to halt, houses to sell, boxes to pack, and on and on. The turmoil of uprooting and replanting can seem like an endless nightmare.

For the horror genre, those who move often find themselves in precarious positions because that new home, that new locale, may not be what it seems. There’s usually something else in that new abode that awaits fresh souls for taking. So before you pack up and move to that new place with great expectations, listen to this episode and think twice…

And supernatural forces may not have been pleased about this topic. During the recording a number of bizarre interruptions took place, and we hope you forgive any technical hiccups from the Great Beyond.

This show is dedicated to the phenomenal man, writer, editor, and director, Don Riemer of Airworthy. He came up with the relocation idea because of Billy Crash’s cross country move. We can’t thank him enough. And if you need an amazing editor for your film, you can never go wrong with Don – and that’s a Billy Crash guarantee.

THE LAST KNOCK presents: 2016’s Worst Horror Films

The Last Knock

With the best comes the worst, and 2016 definitely had its clunkers and over-rated horror films. Consider this our “naughty, but not in a good way list” and enjoy our ride down “Why the Hell did we watch that?” lane.

What horror films did you throw coal at this year?

THE LAST KNOCK presents: 2016’s Best Horror Films

The Last Knock

2016 was a pretty damn good year for horror – the movie variety, of course – and we’re happy to take a look at all those films that made the genre great. In fact, we’ll give you a reverse order countdown to the very best after we look at honorable mentions. Sure, we can wail about neon-colored witches hiding in rundown bars or something, but we won’t.

Is your favorite on the list?

THE LAST KNOCK presents: Macabre Milestone: The Blair Witch Project

The Last Knock

Many dark moons ago, in 1999, a phenomenal word-of-mouth campaign brought moviegoers to the theatre to indulge in The Blair Witch Project. We take a look at the original film’s success, the subsequent sequel, and the latest movie many seemed to think was a remake. We’ll also see where the filmmakers and stars of the original are today, and how the first film changed independent filmmaking, and made found footage a legitimate horror sub-genre.
