Brian Scott. Horror movie fanboy on Twitter here. So glad I found this podcast. Amazing breakdown of horror movies. All facts no fluff. Just well thought out opinions. Great interviews. A must listen

Too SJW now

Was a huge fan back in the day, but its all woke sjw political nonsense now. I liked it better when it was just about the horror and not about alienating opposite political views.

Hooked from the start!

I discovered this podcast last week, and have already made it through Season 1! Love the thoughtful conversation with some humor thrown in. Super interesting! Can’t wait to hear the rest!
