LOD is a podcast all about HORROR in fiction, film, and comics. From H.P. Lovecraft to Stephen King, from Hammer Horror movies to Giallo Slashers, from EC Comics to Saga of the Swamp Thing – nothing is too obscure, too overrated, or too terrifying for us to cover. Join us as we take a look at what lurks in the shadowy corners of the Longbox of Darkness.
Ever wondered what it might be like to transform under the full moon's curse, or face off against ancient evils? We're unraveling these mysteries on this week's episode of The Longbox of Darkness. We're starting with a hair-raising journey into Marvel's classic horror character – Werewolf by Night, delving into the comic book series, its origin story, and its adaptation into a Disney-Marvel TV special. Brace yourself for tales of cursed transformations and dark family legacies!
But we don't stop there. We're also shedding light on Marvel Spotlight issues #2 to #4, giving you an up-close look at the trials of Jack Russell as a Werewolf in Four-Color Print. After that, we enter 'The Cineplex of Terror' to talk about Neil Marshall's 2002 classic 'Dog Soldiers.'
Finally, we wrap up with a tale of chilling darkness from the coffers of Weird Fiction, ”Darker Than You Think”, penned by Jack Williamson. Discover a world of supernatural terror, as journalist Will Barbee embarks on a spine-chilling journey with witch woman April Bell to confront Dr. Mondric and his team of Van Helsing hunters. Tune in to our exploration of these narrative masterpieces that pry into the human psyche and blur the line between man and monster.
