Burnt Offerings Podcast



Burnt Offerings is a podcast featuring horror movie, and music, news and reviews. Hosts Jared and Steve discuss horror films and whatever bands and releases they have been jamming all while downing a fine selection of cheap beer and malt liquor. Steve is a self proclaimed '80s slasher fan who doesn't enjoy much of anything that came out after 1994. If he's not watching Hide and Go Shriek while downing a 40oz of Mickeys and blasting Fister, then he's probably beating Friday the 13th for the NES in under 20min for the 1,000th time. Jared likes his movies gory, grainy, and with a good amount of sleaze. Anything from '80s slashers, to Italian giallos and Japanese death tapes. He enjoys watching a stack of tapes while spinning records, mostly Japanese raw punk, raw grind, or almost any NWOBHM band, and drinking a few beers. Catch us at a convention in the Midwest.


  • Episode 85 | FADE TO BLACK

    25/04/2022 Duração: 01h31min

    Uploading an episode 3 months after recording it isn't that bad, right? Life got flipped turned upside down so, we took a little extended hiatus. Probably should have uploaded the episode before we did that. Anyway, we are back talking about the 1980 film FADE TO BLACK. We also touch on other movies and bands we have been digging that would be worth checking out, as well. So, crack some beers, pack some bowls, and tune in.

  • Episode 84 | A SERBIAN FILM w/Zach Gibson

    25/12/2021 Duração: 02h38min

    We are back with our first guest in over 2 years! Our long time friend Zach Gibson, drummer for the relentless grind band SHIT LIFE, as well as past and current drummer for a ridiculous amount of other bands, is joining us to talk about arguably one of the most controversial movies released; A SERBIAN FILM. Love it or hate it, the fact that this movie is still able to piss off non-horror fans, as well as horror fans, 11 years after it's release is kind of impressive. And, there is no one better to talk about this slice of cinema with us than one of it's bigger proponents. Tune in and smoke em if you got em!

  • Episode 83 | ANTHROPOPHAGUS

    16/11/2021 Duração: 01h18min

    This week we are talking about one of the seminal Joe D'Amato films; his 1980 release ANTHROPOPHAGUS (The Grim Reaper, The Beast, Man-Eater, The Grim Ripper, Antropophagus). This one ranks high on our list of Italian horror, with good reason. Be sure to tune-in to this gut munching episode.

  • Episode 82 | TOMBS OF THE BLIND DEAD

    26/10/2021 Duração: 01h47min

    Halloween is almost upon us. Instead of doing the normal Halloween themed movie, this year we thought we would talk about one of the early films inspired by NOTLD, which has nothing but atmosphere and spooky vibes; Amando de Ossorio's 1972 classic TOMBS OF THE BLIND DEAD. Although, this was dubbed and released in North America, it is definitely better to avoid that version and find the original Spanish release. We touch on the many reasons why in this episode. We also give a run down of movies we've been watching, bands we've been jamming, and recent activities in the Burnt Offerings camp. And, if you haven't heard, ACID WITCH has a new release! Go scoop that shit up.

  • Episode 81 | THE FUNHOUSE

    08/10/2021 Duração: 01h46min

    It is October and we couldn't be more stoked here at the Burt Offerings manor. Kicking the best season off with Tobe Hooper's 1981 carnival catastrophe THE FUNHOUSE. We also touch on which Michael Myers mask was the worst, and the joys of 80s and 90s cable. So, rise and grind, and kick off October with some Burnt Offerings!

  • Episode 80 | THE DEAD NEXTDOOR

    09/09/2021 Duração: 01h47min

    We are back talking about the 1989 low budget, Midwest zombie flick THE DEAD NEXTDOOR. Filmed in Akron, Ohio, and banked rolled by Sam Raimi, this shot on super8 movie is worth checking out.

  • Episode 79 | HELL OF THE LIVING DEAD

    22/08/2021 Duração: 01h54min

    We had a technical difficulty so, the audio is a little sub-par on this recording but, it's not horrible. We are back and delving into the Mattei & Fragasso 1980 virus zombie flick HELL OF THE LIVING DEAD (Virus, Zombie Inferno, Zombie Creeping Flesh, Dusk of the Dead, and many many more). If you dig al the spaghetti zombie/cannibal flicks that were popping out of Italy in the '80s, you should already be a fan of this movie. We go over some bands that are absolutely worth checking out, Steve gives a Cheers run down, and we even touch on the finer points of Howard the Duck. Crack some beers, hit your bong, and tune in.

  • Episode 78 | GATES OF HELL (Revisited)

    22/07/2021 Duração: 01h25min

    Hey! We finally got off our lazy asses and uploaded our last episode. Back when we first started we would sometimes do three movies an episode and spend more time BSing than talking about the movies. So, we decided to start taking movies from those episodes, that we feel didn't get the attention that they deserved, and revisiting them. The first one is Fulci's 1980 release CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD (Gates of Hell). This was only briefly touched on in an earlier episode and it 100% deserves more attention.

  • Episode 77 | NIGHT SCHOOL

    24/06/2021 Duração: 01h44min

    On this episode we dig in to the 1981 slasher/american giallo NIGHT SCHOOL (Terror Eyes). This is probably the closest you will get to an Italian giallo outside of Italy. We also give a sneak peak to the Mannequin 2 segment Steve will be doing each episode. Add in some music and movie suggestion and you have a well rounded episode. Heads roll, mannequins roll, crack a beer and check it out.

  • Episode 76 | Mixed Offerings Pt. 2: Electric Boogaloo

    02/06/2021 Duração: 02h32min

    This week we are digging into our list of sequels that deserve some mention. We are all over the map with this one; horror, '80s comedy, action. Nothing is off limits.

  • Episode 75 | MACABRE

    11/05/2021 Duração: 01h33min

    What's up everyone!? Burnt Offerings is getting back to business as usual. Cheap beer, cheap gore, and not so cheap tapes. This week we are talking about the Lamberto Bava directed 1980s horror MACABRE (The Frozen Terror). Based off a supposed true story, this is a decent first solo effort by Bava. Aside from the normal list of bands and movies we always give, we also did our first surprise live stream while recording this episode. Cheers to those that found it and tuned in!

  • Episode 74 | SLAUGHTER HIGH

    05/04/2021 Duração: 01h15min

    This episode we are back in the realm of 80s slashers. Talking about the 1986, 'Oh no. Our prank, which was totally not a prank, went horribly wrong and we almost killed someone', slasher SLAUGHTER HIGH. Out of the three better known movies based around April Fools day, this is one of the tops. Per usual we also hit you with a list of bands worth checking out, as well as some movies that we have been watching. So, grab your favorite vide and tune in.

  • Episode 73 | EYEBALL

    21/03/2021 Duração: 01h22min

    We are dipping back into the Lenzi catalog for this one. Talking about his 1975 giallo EYEBALL. Red herrings, red ponchos, red gloved killer; this one has it all. What have we been up to? Well, we are updating our merch starting with the new shirts we just put up in our store. What have we been watching and jamming? Tune in and find out.

  • Episode 72 | ZOMBIE 3

    21/02/2021 Duração: 01h24min

    This episode we are trying to make sense of the cluster fuck that is ZOMBIE 3. Between subpar scripts, Fulci's early exit from the directors chair, and multiple fill in directors this movie was destined to be the splatter mess that it is. ZOMBIE 3 may not be the sequel we wanted but, it's the sequel we deserved.

  • Episode 71 | NIGHTMARE CITY

    08/02/2021 Duração: 01h37min

    How has it taken us this long to talk about this movie!? We are talking about one of our favorite Lenzi films, 1980s NIGHTMARE CITY (City of the Walking Dead, Incubo). This is THE quintessential radiation infected non-zombie vampire movie. We also hit you with a handful of things worth checking out music and movie wise.

  • Episode 70 | BODY COUNT

    18/01/2021 Duração: 01h19min

    We are kicking in 2021 by talking about the 1986, filmed in Italy set in America, slasher BODY COUNT directed by RUGGERO DEODATO. This one seems to slip under a lot of radars and should definitely be checked out.

  • Episode 69 | HOME SWEET HOME

    13/12/2020 Duração: 01h56min

    We are delivering our Thanksgiving episode a little late this year. We are talking about the 1981 slasher HOME SWEET HOME (aka Slasher in the House)starring Body By Jake himself Jake Steinfeld.

    26/11/2020 Duração: 01h18min

    Technical difficulties be damned! We are back talking about the 1995 Swedish splatter comedy EVIL ED. If you like Dead Alive and Evil Dead 2, this is right up your alley. We also hit on some bands worth checking out if you can pronounce their names.


    27/09/2020 Duração: 01h27min

    Lets end summer with one last summer time slasher. The 1988 Italian American slasher WELCOME TO SPRING BREAK (aka Nightmare Beach). This movie is a decent blend of elements from both the Italian giallo and the American slasher wrapped up nicely with a score by Claudio Simonetti. We also on Halloween foods, what we've been watching, and a few bands to dig into.

  • Episode 66 | LUNCH MEAT

    07/09/2020 Duração: 01h39min

    This week we are grabbing another slab from the SOV stack. Talking about the 1987 one off LUNCH MEAT. Not the best SOV film but, definitely not the worst, and definitely a loved by both of us. We also hit you with some awesome video store memories, try to crack the case of 'what tape did Jared rent that his dad made him return?', and gt into a few musical debates. So, order a pizza, crack some beers, and enjoy the show.
