VIDEO PODCAST: HoTS LIVE at BloodShed Farms Fear Fest, 28 Oct 17

Last night House of Tortured Souls creators John and Stephanie Ann Roisland spent the evening at BloodShed Farms Fear Fest in Columbus, NJ, just off 295. For those who don't know, BloodShed Farms is a popular haunt in the Jersey horror scene and home of The Circus Rejects.
As John and Steph set the mood, a few folks stop by to say, "Hello".

Later, John tells of his visit to BloosShed farms after attending a Circus Rejects wedding and shows off some HoTS gear (most available at TeePublic).

Jim Reed,
co-owner of BloodShed Farms, speaks with John about haunts, haunting, and BloodShed Farms.

Isaac the Living Doll, one of the actors at BloodShed Farms, stops by the HoTS table.

Psych, a friend and special guest, stops by to impart some wisdom to all tortured souls out there.

House of Tortured Souls LIVE at BloodShed Farms Fear Fest concludes as John thanks everyone for inviting HoTS and allowing us to be part of the 2017 Halloween horror scene in Jersey.

Hey, everyone! Welcome back to HOUSE of TORTURED SOULS LIVE with very special guest MR. JOE STAUFFER!!! We apologize to all of you for our long hiatus, but John got lost in his beard and Allen is still looking for a damn Pepsi!! We have a great one on one interview sit down with writer/director Joe Stauffer. Joe, as you know or should, brought us the 2014 smash Indie horror film Pieces of Talent.
On a personal note, not only is this at the top of my Indie list, this film is at the top of my all time favorites list! I absolutely love this film as I feel it is a true work of art brought to life on the silver screen, all the more reason I was so excited and enjoyed getting to become friends with Joe Stauffer. And it was a great honor to have him on the House of Tortured Souls Live Podcast!
Joe sits and discusses the making of Pieces of Talent, Indie films, and a few possible things brewing for the future of Joe Stauffer and Shutter Blade Media.
So grab a seat, and a cold beer if you have one. Then sit back and enjoy the show! Joe, its always a pleasure talking to you, and we thank you for your time and everything you've done for us.

This week on House of Tortured Souls Live, Robert LaSardo guests on our Black Friday Special!

Hey boys and girls, demons and demonettes and horror fans across the land! Welcome to the House of Tortured Souls Live Thanksgiving Black Friday Special! Allen and I had a very special guest in the HoTS Live studio, Mr. Robert Lasardo! Robert is of course known by everyone as being the actor with the body suit of tattoos, well did you know that Robert also has over 120 acting titles to his credits. Tiles ranging from China Girl to Dee Snyder's Strange Land and from Nip/Tuck to The Human Centipede III and, most recently, Anarchy Parlor.
Robert talks remakes, special f/x, Elvis and Dee Snyder. We also discuss people as sheep in the entertainment industry and how people are labeled.

I (John) was lucky enough to have met Robert LaSardo at Scares That Care Charity Weekend in 2015. I had a business card for House of Tortured Souls but hadn't even launched the website yet. Robert took my card, told me he was filming out of country but was going to call when he got home... I figured the card was in the trash, and Robert was gone. I got a call at home one night as, sure enough, he made true on his word. Robert is one of the most sincere and passionate people I have ever met. The expression the strong silent type comes very close to being perfect when describing Robert LaSardo, and I absolutely love talking with him.

Now sit back and listen for the next hour or so as John Roisland and Allen Alberson bring you their Thanksgiving Black Friday Special! With that being said, we wish and hope everyone has and had a great and safe Turkey Day!
Don't forget - (209) 600-EVIL...call, leave us a message, anything you'd like to talk about. JUST CALL US!

By John Roisland
Hey, everyone, welcome! And thank you all for joining us once again as your hosts of House of Tortured Souls Live – the hosts with the most John and Allen bring you all the horror news!

We have a big show this week as John and Allen welcome writers and stars of THE NIGHT WATCHMEN, Ken Arnold and Dan Deluca and costars Donald Imm and Dan Franko. The guys took the time to break away from their hectic schedule while in Atlanta for the premier of their film THE NIGHT WATCHMEN to tell us a bit about how the film originally came to be, the audience response to the film, and, of course, the future of THE NIGHT WATCHMEN.
John and Allen go over news issues ranging from film remakes THE CROW to the most recent updates on film director Robert Eggers, who has signed on to remake horror classic Nosferatu.
House of Tortured Souls Live also makes mention of the upcoming KING KONG film Skull Island as well as the already in the works sequel to box office smash DON’T BREATHE.
We pay our respects to the huge loss of musician/poet Leonard Cohen. And, on the flip side of music, make mention of Slayer’s own, Kerry King as he is joining the horror convention circuit.

Allen also gives his very heart felt thoughts to actress Shelly Duvall as she makes a public cry out for medical help with many physical and mental issues she has been fighting with for years.
So stick around and fill your ears with the sounds of horror at the House of Tortured Souls Live.

Jason is one of the stars of the new award winning indie horror film Family Possessions. Jason will also be starring in the upcoming Hunting Grounds (formerly Valley of the Sasquatch), as well as Dollface (formerly Dorchester’s Revenge: The Return of Crinoline Head) by Family Possessions director Tommy Faircloth. He can currently also be seen in Boo! A Madea Halloween.

Jason will talk about his films roles past, present and upcoming. He will also talk about what it’s like to work with director Tommy Faircloth, being a full time actor and more. The interview was recorded two weeks ago, but due to unforeseen circumstances we were just able to get the whole show published. Thus this was before Family Possessions won best overall feature at Nightmares Film Festival. Congrats to Jason, Tommy and Leah Wiseman and everyone else involved.

House of Tortured Souls Live Welcomes Billy Pon

With Special Guest Billy Pon

By John Roisland, Stephanie Roisland, and Allen (Dixielord) Alberson

&npsp;

During the Billy Pon interview about a minute and a half of audio was garbled, and some bits lost. It was either cut the entire section, leave it or try and piece it together and possibly lose or misinterpret the questions and response so I decided to leave it as is. Apologies to Billy Pon.
