Ali Doyle, Conor Dowling, Conor McMahon and Mark Sheridan are all chained at the ankle to a pipe and will only be set free by discussing horror for over an hour – will they succeed and be freed or will they fail and be handed a hacksaw by their evil editor.

Reel Horror Show: Episode 8 – Halloween Live Recording

The gruesome gang return from the dead for a very special live recording in front of an unholy audience in the dungeons of Filmbase.

Regulars Mark “flesh-eating” Sheridan and Conor “axe-wielding” McMahon were joined by very special guests Zoe “zombie-hunter” Kavanagh and David “candelabrum-in-the-wind” Turpin to dissect all things horror. The frightful four chew over their own particular love of horror, making horror films and what puts the shivers in their shizzle, amongst other devilish discourse.

Film Ireland would like to make it clear that all blood sacrifices on the night were voluntary and a result of the victims’ own free will. 

Happy Halloween!

Reel Horror Show – Episode 1


From the bowels of the basement

came bloodcurdling screams;

as four came to pod

and nightmares possessed dreams.

Strangled by terror:

Demons, devils and doubt,

ghastly groans heard for miles

as the horror spewed out.

Conor McMahon, Ali Doyle, Mark Sheridan and Conor Dowling join forces to bring you the Reel Horror Show, which debuts with a seasonal episode of Halloween natter about favourite horror films.
