This week on the Bloodhound Pix Podcast, we continue looking at our 2020 film highlights while sharing our newest discoveries of 2021.
It’s a double dose of Bloodhound Pix! We celebrate the best of 2020 and dig deep into what 2021 has gifted us with so far.
MORE ABOUT THE EPISODES:
This pair of episodes are special, as they mark the first time the Bloodhound Pix crew has recorded together since before last year’s election. So, of course, they first have to chat about their favorite horror films from 2020. They discuss everything from the (few) major releases to the truly independent screeners — showcasing that, despite a chaotic and hard year, there was still a plethora of great movies deserving of recognition.
We’ve also got another great Screener Spotlight segment!
Bloodhound Pix began with three classmates/friends taking a unique approach to reviewing by tackling these horror movies as a group, which would lead to much bickering, creating our group dynamic, and plenty of opportunities that we have been honored to get. Even after our transition to the podcast, we still take time to return to our written reviews out of loyalty for what sparked it all. Since we are highlighting films that are at least a few years old through the podcast, this is our opportunity to discuss upcoming films that we had the opportunity to screen and give an audio and more personal version of what we really thought of these films.

ABOUT THE PODCAST:
The Bloodhound Pix Podcast seeks to highlight independent and obscure horror cinema, and create an inclusive space for creators and fans to interact.
Hosts Craig Draheim, Josh Lee and Kyle Hintz met as graduate students pursuing their MFAs in Screenwriting at the David Lynch Graduate School of the Cinematic Arts at Maharishi University of Management, and they bonded over their love of horror cinema. In 2019, they set out to form their own production company and podcast to focus on indie horror. Thus, Bloodhound Pix was born.
Be sure to tune in the first and third weeks of the month for new episodes of THE BLOODHOUND PIX PODCAST on the Morbidly Beautiful Network.
