    The Halloweenies have arrived at Camp Crystal Lake to set up shop. Things are remarkably quiet, though. It's as if something or someone is watching from the woods -- waiting patiently to strike. You know, just like that ol' man warned us of...


    Join Editor-in-Chief Michael Roffman, senior writer Justin Gerber, contributing writer McKenzie Gerber, and pop culture critic Mike Vanderbilt as they set up camp, find shelter from the storm, and play a few rounds of strip Monopoly.


    Together, they discuss how the film shares more qualities of the '70s than the '80s the franchise would define, debate over whether it's scarier without Jason Voorhees, and meditate on a potential revelation about one particular camper.

Great show but..

I thought you were going to do a Freddy’s Nightmares episode before moving to Friday the 13th. Disappointed that didn’t happen but I’m glad the show is back at least.

Best Horror Podcast

I honestly think this is the best horror (or even movie) podcast out there. They offer very in depth analysis on each film, they also cover them in a way that is fun and re-listenable. My biggest problem with any other podcast that covers movies or reviews them is that they spend 90% of the time they are just going over the plot beat for beat, these guys don’t do that. They also don’t agree with each other all the time too, which makes for a more interesting listen. Overall, this is thee best horror podcast out there no contest.

And they were spot on about Halloween (2018) anyone else who thinks otherwise is a moron and should go watch the conjuring. I would really pay someone to justify the Dr. Sartain character.

This Podcast is Amazing!!!

LOVE IT! I’ve been listening since the beginning (came from the losers club podcast), and listening to them discuss (and sometimes roast) movies that I love is so much fun. I love hearing different opinions and heading them strongly defend their opinions. It’s helpful that they do every movie in the series in order, and not just skip around to random movies and sequels in the horror genre, which some other podcast have done. I am always eagerly waiting for a new episode and to see that series will be their next one. Super excited to Friday the 13th starting in a few days!!!!!
Love EVERYONE on the pod 💛
