Hello, I’m Bane Hellborne, one of the hosts of EMZT Radio Horror Podcast.. http://emztradio.podbean.com/
why am i into horror? it started when i was really young, maybe about 10 years old and i saw Bela Lugosi’s DRACULA. i was fascinated, and mainly because the black and white films seemed to instantly attract me. Black & white films give an altered version of reality already and so the movies seem to be more dream like and kind of terrifying and then i worked my way up to Frank Langella’s DRACULA and i remember asking my mom for a cross for me to sleep with that night and then my mom got angry with me because i scared myself and she ordered that i never watch another horror movie again, but parents back then don’t realize child psychology, that just made me want to watch more.. bad mistake Mom.. LOL!
of course during my childhood i mostly had to sneak behind my parents’ backs to watch horror movies until i finally was 18 and able to be on my own, then i always went to see the latest horror movies and my parents couldn’t stop me! as i grew older i seemed to keep my love of black and white horror films but then was more fascinated by the modern horror movies where the blood gushed in bucket loads and the sounds of limbs being hacked off and the screaming, i seem to really enjoy hearing the screaming! as i grew older i realized all the different categories of horror, from serial killers to monsters and ghosts and even SCI-FI! now that’s a fun topic too, Sci-Fi horror, which include mad scientists and even outer space.. and thanks to Netflix, i can watch these 24/7!
i also have quite a collection of movies that span almost 30 years and would make any horror section of a video store look weak, my long time horror collections also include a wide variety of movie posters mostly collected from movie theaters and video stores.. my parents hated my horror interest and always thought that i will grow out of it one day, well folks i’m not sorry to disappoint you again, but now i’m in my 40s, i don’t think my horror interest will ever end, and i’m sure that they have given up at this point too, at least i don’t get harassed by them anymore about it, but all my dad does is shake his head whenever i talk about something i’ve collected.. LOL!!
and with the new minis podcast featuring my 7 year old nephew, who’s very interested in horror, thanks to my influence, i am now mentoring the next generation of horror fiends..
my love of horror is a way for me to deal with the bad things in my life.. abusive parents when i was young, backstabbing former friends, the drama of boyfriends who cheat on you and now dealing with a mom who has dementia.. horror gives me an inner strength to not be weak or a target because some people do learn never to pick on the “weird people”.. LOL!
we are still a fledgling podcast and we are working hard to make this podcast into something more.. soon a merch page and hopefully some sponsorships in the future and then we can travel to conventions(Phoenix Comicon, San Diego Comicon!) and i would be so happy if i could have my own Pop Vinyl bobblehead!
