EPISODE 100

ZOMBIES STRIKE BACK

Halloween can’t happen without zombies and zombie movies! So for our 100th episode of What Are You Afraid Of? Horror & Paranormal Show, the zombies rise again. After dying due to media saturation, the re-animated strike back, returning to their rightful place in horror. Authors T. Fox Dunham, member of the Horror Writers Association, and Phil Thomas, author and filmmaker, celebrate their beloved undead by interviewing an awesome guest, director and scriptwriter of the social satire horror film, “Zombies of Mass Destruction”, Kevin Hamedani. Born of Persian heritage, Kevin suffered prejudice in America after 9-11 and the Iraq War. In response, this brilliant filmmaker followed in the footsteps of legendary director George Romero, who created “Night of the Living Dead” as a commentary on the Vietnam War. He tells Fox and Phil about the process of filming, his career, inspirations and his love of horror movies. Kevin gives advice to new filmmakers and talks about the brief haunting of an old apartment. T. Fox Dunham also brings you a new true ghost story, “The Hungry Ghosts of Philadelphia.” The city moved the cemetery, dumping the bodies but the ghosts remained and hunger for cheesesteaks and coffee. And as a special event, T. Fox Dunham narrates one of his unpublished zombie stories set during World War II in the Pacific Theater: “The Return to Seagaia.” The war dead of Japan try to come home. To close the show, the punk group, The Zombie Dandies, play their song, “Zombie Mass Shootings”—a love song to all the great zombie films. You can’t keep a good zombie down—well not unless you aim for the head.

GHOST TALES FROM FORT MIFFLIN

 

As part of our countdown to Halloween 2018, horror authors T. Fox Dunham & Phil Thomas return to one of America’s oldest haunted sites, Fort Mifflin. Fox organized their annual horror reading, HORROR AT THE FORT, with members of the PA Chapter of the Horror Writers Association, Nick Cato and new author, Michael Garrett, who sat in as Fox’s co-pilot for this episode. After talking about the incredible day of readings, Fox and Michael share some popular ghost stories of the Fort. Then, they hang out with paranormal investigators from R.E. A.P. Investigations, Kris Reap & Paul Dixon, who talk about some of their ethereal encounters during the evening’s public ghost hunt, the nature of proper etiquette for paranormal investigators and the existence of demons. The spirits even follow them into the bathroom! English folksinger, David Walton, narrates two new ghost stories from the book Folklore of the New Jersey Shore by Richard J Kimmel and Karen Timper. And to get you in the mood for Halloween, they play their favorite spooky ballad from Monk Turner, “Halloween Night” and a punk song from Ed Schrader's Music Beat, “I Think I’m a Ghost.” Only three more episodes until Halloween 2018!
