This is one Spooktacular Podcast!! 😜🔪

I absolutely Love this show.
I have been looking for a great horror related podcast every since ‘Horror Etc.’ called it quits.
This podcast is fantastic.
It feels just like a close group of friends getting together & discussing all things horror.
They have turned me on to so many unknown & forgotten films. My “to watch” list grows larger with each passing episode.
