Terrific podcast! I usually listen to each episode twice

The two hosts for this podcast work perfectly together. They touch on so much horror news that I usually listen to each episode twice to ensure I made proper notes on movies I want to watch. I listen to many horror podcasts, and this is by far the best. Highly recommend!

Smart and fun horror discussion

The two hosts once did a few podcasts with other hosts and this is proof that sometimes a duo is better than a band.

Less franchise horror talk, more about good, fringe, foreign and groundbreaking horror. And horror history, but not dry, very interesting. You get the mainstream stuff too.

The Kindred

I can’t believe you all mentioned The Kindred. That was really my first horror movie I got introduced to😎👍🏾
