MONSTERKID Radio #256 - Dr. Terror's House of Horrors

I had a blast recently chatting with Derek Koch, host of Monsterkid Radio, as we talked about the 1965 anthology film DR. TERROR'S HOUSE OF HORRORS. I'm a big fan of anthology films, and this is one of the best. Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing, Donald Sutherland, Roy Castle - directed by Freddie Francis - this one rocks.



Derek always does a FANTASTIC job with the podcast - he won a Rondo Award last year in the much vaunted Best Multimedia category. And well deserved.
