Morbidly Beautiful

Your Home for Horror


They say third time’s a charm, but “Blade Trinity” challenges that idea with the most ridiculous entry in the popular franchise.

We ran a poll on social media platforms to see which film we would look at in our “Corny Comic Book Horror” edition. Would it be 2004’s Blade Trinity or 2007’s Ghost Rider? It was a pretty tight vote but in the end, you went for the day-walker Blade in his silliest on-screen adventure.

Alongside NHE host Scott Murphy, we have a couple of great former guests in the form of author Lex Jones (The Old One and The Sea) and director Michael Peterson (Knuckleball).

Over the course of the episode, the three talk about how this was the first (of a few) Deadpool dry runs for Ryan Reynolds, the (alleged) weirdness of Wesley Snipes’ on-set behavior, and their thoughts on the comic book movie oeuvre of David S. Goyer. Plus they get into the movie’s tonal inconsistencies, how this might be one of the weakest showings for Dracula, and its troubled production history (beyond the Snipes stuff).

Elsewhere, the trio gets into 90s comics books, vampire mythology, and early-mid 00s hyperactive editing.

Guilty Pleasures is a monthly spin-off show of the popular New Horror Express (NHE) podcast. Each month, NHE host Scott Murphy, alongside some former guests on the interview podcast, takes a deep dive into a 21st Century “Guilty Pleasure” horror movie as chosen by you the listener in an online poll (based on a particular theme).

Host Scott Murphy is a freelance journalist, reviewer, and podcaster. He got into horror in his early teens and has not looked back since. As well as reviewing on New Horror Express, he currently writes reviews for The Wee Review and has previously written for Slimehouse TV, Subtitled Online, and The 405.  His favorite horror movie is The Shining, and his favorite horror novel is Interview with The Vampire.
