Essential listening

I came across this podcast a couple of months ago and have been absolutely hooked ever since. It’s essential listening for all movie fans, and for those with even a passing interest in horror and it’s many sub-genres. Mike is a warm and enthusiastic host with a laudable devotion to chronicling the evolution of horror on screen, and his extensive roster of always fascinating guests makes each episode a fun and informative time. Thanks for the hours of entertainment Mike and friends! Cheers, Rob
