In honor of our anniversary, we proudly debut The Bloodhound Pix Podcast on our Network, with a premiere episode honoring the films of Lucio Fulci.
Morbidly Beautiful was founded five years ago — born out of a passion for horror and belief that this transcendent genre is beautiful, powerful, and incredibly important. It was also founded with a love of indie and a deep desire to celebrate the often underrepresented and unsung champions of the genre.
As we’ve grown over the years, in exciting and truly surprising ways, we’ve worked to expand our reach and find new ways to engage with those who share our passions. One of the recent enhancements to our site is the launch of the Morbidly Beautiful Podcast Network. This network has allowed us to deliver more unique and compelling voices, champion more indie creators, and strengthen the diversity that has always been one of our driving forces.
I could not be more thrilled to celebrate our anniversary with the addition of yet another incredible show to our network. What makes this even more special is that we have chosen a show that, like Morbidly Beautiful, was launched to celebrate all things indie.
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.About the Hosts
New episodes of the podcast air every Tuesday, according to the following schedule:
1st Tuesday: Cinema Obscura Double Feature

ABOUT THIS EPISODE: CINEMA OBSCURA DOUBLE FEATURE (FULCI)
It’s the first Tuesday of the month! That means Bloodhound Pix is releasing this month’s Cinema Obscura Double Feature episode.
Prepare yourself for a double feature of the obscure and independent cinema that the horror genre has to offer. Each episode Craig, Josh, and Kyle will tackle two movies that’s one-part highlight and one-part retrospective review, where the three will be able to loosen up and let their personal opinions shine. The movies might be hidden gems, dumb fun, so bad they’re good treasures, torture films, movies “only a mother could love,” or some combination — but someone deems them worthy of a viewing. And the other two go along for the ride!
In this episode, we talk Kyle’s double feature picks: Don’t Torture a Duckling (1972) and The Beyond (1981), a double dose of Lucio Fulci.
Kyle and Josh bond over their mutual love of Lucio Fulci and debate their favorite film from Fulci’s “Gates of Hell” trilogy. Meanwhile, Craig tries to find the beauty in Italian sleaze and eye trauma.
Be sure to tune in every Tuesday for new episodes of THE BLOODHOUND PIX PODCAST on the Morbidly Beautiful Network.
