Penny Dreadful's Shilling Shockers

Penny Dreadful's Shilling Shockers is fast becoming one of the most popular horror hosts shows currently being made. Based out of Massachusetts, witch Penny and her werewolf husband, Garou, have been making their show for a few years and have gathered a huge following, even winning the 2007 Rondo award for Favorite Active Horror Host. Set most of the time in an attic, Penny & Garou are joined by Dr. Manfred Von Bulow, a monster hunter.
The first few seasons were made in black & white, in homage to the classic hosts, but soon Penny found a spell to make her show in color. Every six months a new season of seven episodes is released and is soon followed by a full season boxed DVD set.

Shilling Shockers is full of humor and fun, but the background information of the films that are shown is HEXellent. Penny is very knowledgeable about all areas of horror and imparts her audience with interesting facts. Also peppered in the show are interviews with celebrities, other horror hosts, & filmmakers. Penny is a wonderful interviewer, asking all the right questions and making them as enjoyable to watch as the rest of the show.
During her fourth season, Penny had a special called Horror Hosts of New England where she gave a history of hosts in that area, showing rare clips and interviews.
Penny and Garou are also the hosts of a monthly radio show on Cult Radio A-Go-Go:
