This would normally be part of the DTF episodes, but since our webmaster in chief Parker was not available, we’ll throw this one under the usual Just Saying discussion episodes. We’ll still shamelessly plug Parker’s site though at, deltorofilms.com.

With that, let’s move on to the show notes…

– The Hobbit.

– Van Helsing.

– At The Mountains of Madness.

– Hellboy 3.

– Frankenstein

– Saturn and the End of Days.

– Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark

– Comicon 2010

Discussion items came from the recent mega interview with del Toro done over at Collider.com it’s well worth your time to watch it, if for no other reason than to see Chuck Bartowski gush fanboy style.


Gary “El Boy” Deocampo provides insightful profiles & reviews with his own original tongue-in-cheek, macabre, fan-boy style.

Gary was born in the City of Angels and raised on a healthy diet of Rod Serling’s The Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits, Night Gallery, The Hammer Horror Films, and his favorite, Universal Studio’s Monster Movies.

But alas, it was a film that was released in the winter of 1973, where his love and perception of all things Horror would personally change him forever. William Friedkin’s, The Exorcist was that film. To this day The Exorcist still gives him the heebie-jeebies.

Presently, his affinity for the horror genre has broadened and spans the globe. His love and appreciation for director’s Takashi Miike (Audition) and Chan-Wook Park (Old Boy) from the Far East to Sweden’s Tomas Alfredson (Let The Right One In) to his favorite, Mexico’s very own Guillermo del Toro (Cronos, Devil’s Backbone, Pan’s Labyrinth).

In his spare time he likes to exercise and/or exorcise his inner demons. The little devil still resides in the City of Angels, in a suburb founded by Puritans (!) with his lovely and patient wife, his two equally lovely and patient children, two hounds and his pet Cthulhu.
