FANGORIA Podcast Network: “MONSTER PARTY” returns to talk Horror Sequels with writer Robert Zappia!


In pop culture, sequels and the horror genre have become nearly synonymous with one another, with nary a homage or parody missing that aspect of the genre. With the horror audience so loving of the characters and FX wizardry within our favorite fright franchises, there are more sequels to horror properties than one could have ever imagined. So luckily, this week’s MONSTER PARTY has more macabre material than they could sink their teeth into as the fearsome four sit down with HALLOWEEN: H20 scribe Robert Zappia to talk horror sequels!

Lock your caskets and check your pulse, horror hounds, as hosts Matt Weinhold, Shawn Sheridan, Larry Strothe and James Gonis sit down with screenwriter Robert Zappia to talk about our favorite cinematic killers that just won’t stay dead. With a murderer’s row of fright icons at their behest, from Freddy Krueger to Charles Lee Ray to, of course, Michael Myers, our horror hosts run the gamut to share their favorite (and least favorite) horror sequels. Zappia also regales Weinhold and Co. with plenty of petrifying stories behind the prototypical reboot/sequel, HALLOWEEN: H20. And, of course, what is an episode of MONSTER PARTY without some blood spilling among friends, although something tells me they’ll be back for another installment in two weeks!
