Growing a New Crop of Sci-Fi Podcasts

Experience the B-Movie Horror Soundtrack of The Deadly Spawn

There are great movie soundtracks, ones that resonate with your soul, invigorate your blood flow, and generally kick ass. This is not one of those albums, but it is a very amusing album, and one that fans of 1980s "B movie" horror flicks should enjoy, if not outright love.

The Deadly Spawn was one of those gore-filled, low-budget horror flicks that dominated the back racks of 1980s video stores. Inspired by big budget monster movies like Alien and the low-budget splatter fests of Halloween and Friday the 13th the films of the era sought to kill as many people with the most lethal gut-wrenching effects possible (well, as long as it didn't exceed the $20,000 budget line).
