Decades of Horror 1970s is partnering with the WICKED HORROR TV CHANNEL (https://wickedhorrortv.com/) which now includes video episodes of the podcast and is available on Roku, AppleTV, Amazon FireTV, AndroidTV, and its online website across all OTT platforms, as well as mobile, tablet, and desktop.

After being released from a mental hospital, Otto returns to his old job as a butcher. He tries to adjust to his new life, but after a bitter argument with his wife, he accidentally kills her. Fearing he will be sent back to the hospital, he grinds up her body and sells it as sausages. The popularity of his new sausage recipe necessitates that others find their way into his butcher’s display case.

 

If you are a fan of Victor Buono (Batman,1966-68; What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?, 1962; Hush…Hush, Sweet Charlotte, 1964), then we have the episode for you. The Mad Butcher (1971) is a unique beast of a film: a dark comedy in the vein of Sweeney Todd. It’s bizarre, clumsy, silly, yet oddly entertaining. And, well, “Meat is Meat,” yes? Check out what the Grue-Crew think of this often-overlooked nugget.

At the time of this writing, The Mad Butcher is available to stream from the Classic Horror Movie Channel and YouTube.

Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror 1970s is part of the Decades of Horror two-week rotation with The Classic Era and the 1980s. In two weeks, the next episode, chosen by guest host Gregory Crosby, will be Countess Dracula (1971), another Hammer Film, directed by Peter Sasdy and starring Ingrid Pitt! Be there!
