Ep. 15 Netflix Original Review: 1922


Today the Nerds take a look at 1922, a Netflix original movie based on the story by Stephen King of the same name.



1922 is based on Stephen King's 131-page story telling of a man's confession of his wife's murder. The tale is told from from the perspective of Wilfred James, the story's unreliable narrator who admits to killing his wife, Arlette, with his son in Nebraska. But after he buries her body, he finds himself terrorized by rats and, as his life begins to unravel, becomes convinced his wife is haunting him.

Ep. 13: Comic Review: Stoker & Wells W/ Steven Peros


Thank you for joining us once again, as we look at another indie comic that is wrapping up its run on Kickstarter. Joining us tonight is creator of "Stoker & Wells" Steven Peros.


Stoker & Wells takes place in 1894 London, where a 20-something H.G. Wells and a 40-something Bram Stoker meet and have a very unexpected 48-hour adventure that leads to the creative inspiration for both writer's first great success - THE TIME MACHINE for Wells and DRACULA for Stoker. 


Jason and I both loved the concept of the story right off the bat, and encourage everyone to head out to the kickstarer page to help fund this project.



Thanks to Steven Peros for joining us to talk about his project.

Thanks to Jake Lionhart for The Nerds from the Crypt theme.


Ep. 12: Hulu Series Review: 11.22.63 (LOST EPISODE)



The review of Hulu's 11.22.63 was originally recorded on April 26,2016. This was before Nerds from the Crypt was even a thought, as I was doing what I liked to call Perezpective Reviews.


My friend Jake Lionhart (from the Nick V Memoriam episode as well as the Santa Clarita diet and the main theme to the podcast) told me his friend Nick was a fan of the show and listening to my weekly episode reviews. 


I invited Nick to join me for the series review and we realized we liked the same type of series and movies. This was where the initial seeds of what would become the Nerds from the Crypt Podcast. This is our origin, our episode 0.


The episode was lost when we originally moved podcast host to separate it from my other podcast. However, with the passing of Nick, I wanted to re-upload the lost episodes so we can all hear his voice a little bit more. 

Synopsis: Jake Epping (James Franco), a recently divorced English teacher from Maine, is presented with the chance to travel back in time to Dallas, Texas, in 1960 by his longtime friend Al Templeton (Chris Cooper). He is convinced into going and attempts to prevent the assassination of JFK in November 1963. However, he becomes attached to the life he makes in the past and this could be his mission's undoing.


Ep. 11: Comic Review: Twilight Hotel Vol. 1 W/ Darrell Smith & Ra X


Today, Jason joins me once again to talk with Darrell Smith & Ra X, creators of Twilight Hotel Vol 1. You might remember us mention Twilight Hotel, in our Voodoo Detective review. Let us tell you, this is a campaign you will definitely want to back. 

Stay tuned till the end for a chance to get your own copy of Twilight Hotel Vol. 1*. 

Head over to the Kickstarter page and help them get this out to the world:



Ep. 10: Nick V. (In Memoriam)


This past week, the nerd community lost one of its best people. Those who follow the show will know, that Nick was a founding member of the podcast. While we are still trying to process the loss; we wanted to make sure that we honor our friend.


We reached out to his family, and we received the blessing to do this special episode that combined 2 of the podcasts Nick was a part of. Nick, we will make you proud.
