Knowledgeable film buffs

Love this podcast, it’s been getting harder to get through though recently. It’s the balance of these guys love for exploitation/horror cinema and being woke that’s taken some of the fun out of the whole thing. Still recommend though, always interesting.

Incredible

I have been listening since the first episode and never I have never written a review (sorry). Incredible podcast and super informative. The hosts are both amazing and entertaining. Hope it never ends!

One of the best

I’ve been listening to this podcast for years and never left a review, which is criminal neglect on my part, because this podcast is seriously one of the best. The lovely hosts Sam and Dan are more than knowledgeable about film and can teach you more than my four year film degree. Seriously - if you like film, if you’re looking for recommendations you can’t get anywhere else, or if you just need the sound of some soothing voices to get you through COVID related quarantine, this is the best gift you can give yourself.
