Hello, everybody, and welcome back to The MonsterGrrls' Thir13en For Halloween! This is Frankie Franken, your Creature-Grrl correspondent for the Attack Of The Horror Hosts, and today we're continuing the Thir13en with Joe Flynn, host of The Joe Flynn Show on California's Channel 15 in the San Jose area. Joe Flynn is a self-described monster movie maniac who hosts classic horror movies on his show, and enjoys the horror genre as much as we do!

Welcome to The MonsterGrrls' Thir13en For Halloween! Please tell us about yourself and what you do!

I’m Joe Flynn, and I grew up in San Jose, California, watching classic TV shows like Dark Shadows and Creature Features with the late great Bob Wilkins and John Stanley, who got me into my love for horror movies and what I do today! I am an actor and horror host of The Joe Flynn Show with my co-host Priscilla, and I've been in a few movies. This is our 10th year on the air.

How did the Joe Flynn Show get started? Where can we see it?

It came about with my friends while working on another local cable show. They knew my love for horror movies, so that's how it got started! If you live in the San Jose/Campbell area you can see it on Channel 15 or you can watch it online at on Friday night at 12 AM Pacific, 3 AM Eastern. If you'd like to have your films to be reviewed or your trailer play on our show, contact us!

What do you think a horror host is, or should be?

A horror host is someone who can entertain the fans, be it with some movie trivia or being themselves. A horror host should always be polite to fans and always support their fellow horror hosts worldwide.

What is your favorite horror movie?

I have way too many favorites. Here’s a short list: Dracula, Halloween, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Psycho, 2001 Maniacs, Night Of The Living Dead.

What do you think about modern vs. classic horror?

I think there’s a place for both of them! I'm still loyal to classic horror movies, but there’s a few cool modern horror films out there… Trick’r Treat, the short film Horror Of Our Love which is a great throwback to 80's horror films.

What does Halloween mean to you?

Halloween to me is the one night where we can dress up who we want to be, if it be dressing up like a zombie, a vampire, a ghost, a witch, a ghoul, Michael Myers, Jason or Freddy, to get some cool candy.

Describe a favorite Halloween memory.

Favorite Halloween memory… tough one! When after trick or treating, getting a creepy phone call asking if your mom or dad were home! Like in the movie Scream!

What will you do for this Halloween?

I will be filming the kids’ trick or treat at my house for our show while listening to some Halloween music, then watching some classic horror movies. Remember to watch horror movies and keep America strong! A big shout-out to our fans and fellow horror hosts!

Thanks for talking with us, Joe, and all my readers can also see The Joe Flynn Show at, too! Be sure to join us for the next installment of The MonsterGrrls' Thir13en For Halloween... golly, the day is almost here!
