Long time listeners know that the last year or so has been a bit of a challenge for the 40oz. Of Horror crew. Friend and cofounder James followed his dreams and moved to Pittsburgh so he could attend the prestigious Tom Savini Special Effects Make-up Program. Although Chad and Jake held down the 40oz. fort during this time — Skyping James in each episode — the shows were fewer and farther between, a little bit of in person chemistry was lost and we didn’t get out to hang at as many horror conventions with our extended 40oz. family. What a weird ride!

But that’s all about to change.

In the next couple weeks, James will be to graduating and moving back to the area where he has plans to open up shop (more official news on that later) and reclaim his seat in the 40oz. Of Horror studios! What this means for you is that we’ll be back to our regularly scheduled programing with all new segments and more!

We’re proud to say that in 2015, 40oz. Of Horror is back… and this time it’s personal.

We’re kicking of the year (a little late to give James some time to get home) with our annual 40oz. Of Horror Awards Show. This show will cover our 2014 favorites and includes your input! Check out a sneak peek of the categories and finalists below — VOTING IS OPEN NOW. VOTE HERE. As always… DRINK UP!
