    Spooktober Special: The Conjuring (2013)

    Spooktober Special: The Conjuring (2013)

    Halloween is here! That magical time of year when you can eat all the candy, drink all the pumpkin ale, and force your wife who hates horror to watch a spooky movie!
    So join us this week as we don't listen to our dog, gasp at Patrick Wilson’s beauty, and try invade a witches land, all while discussing the 2013 haunted house classic ‘The Conjuring’.
    The Conjuring is a 2013 American supernatural horror film directed by James Wan and written by Chad Hayes and Carey W. Hayes. It is the inaugural film in The Conjuring Universe franchise.[4] Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga star as Ed and Lorraine Warren, paranormal investigators and authors associated with prominent cases of haunting. Their purportedly real-life reports inspired The Amityville Horror story and film franchise.[5] The Warrens come to the assistance of the Perron family, who experienced increasingly disturbing events in their newly occupied farmhouse in Rhode Island in 1971. With Ed and Lorraine Warren's investigation, the Perron case became the first witch curse that is placed across the land.

Magic May is Awesome

I’m absolutely loving their Harry Potter marathon so far. Love the contrast in views from a book lover and a non-reader. Their opinions are priceless and definitely worth a listen and even a rewatch of some movies!

Thunder Down Under

I'm a big fan of most film review show, but I don't have a heap of Aussie ones in my downloads - so here's one to add to the list. Aside from the fun they have talking about movies, I like how with their background they can offer a little extra in their opinion.
