Easy and Enjoyable Listening!

Love listening to these guys breakdown the history of the classic horror movies that we all love! I know I’ll go back and watch and now notice things I hadn’t noticed in the past! Great podcast!

Well Done!

Had the honor to be a guest on Brucker’s “The Woman in Black” episode. Brucker makes the experience a very relaxed conversation on something to geek out over. First episode I listened to was his review of “House on Haunted Hill” and I never saw the 90s version, but just listening he gave me chills! Great job and best wishes on this solo podcast experience! Can’t wait to listen to future episodes! ~Megan

A great horror podcast

Brucker is the man you go to when you want to hear about horror movies! You can tell he has a ton of knowledge and love for the genre that makes every episode a must listen for me! I highly recommend
