Yes yes and yes please

I love this podcast so much, as a horror obsessive it’s made me revisit movies I haven’t seen in so long and start breaking them down on a critical level, as well as discovering horror movies I wouldn’t have watched on my own. I’ve looked deeper into horror movies than I would have before and rewatching 30 Days of Night for its respective episode was a delight. I noticed new things and enjoyed the movie all over again during the discussion. Fantastic

This pod got me to watch a horror movie!

I’m squeamish but have always been fascinated by horror. This podcast is thoughtful, funny, and really helpful for gauging “safe” movies. I watched House (Hausu) based on its episode and loved it!

fernfriend ,

starter podcast for the horror curious

I really don’t like horror movies (can’t even watch the trailers) but I love this smart, funny, thoughtful and genuine podcast. The hosts bring their writer/actor/storyteller’s perspectives to the conversation, and they cover a wide range of movies: kitsch, classic, cult, blockbuster, etc
