New fan

I love this podcast. I love the in depth discussion about the psychological thinking behind the films as well as the books they’re based on.

Terrorific!!!

If you’re not subscribed to this podcast already, do so IMMEDIATELY. This is a well done, ridiculously listenable show. I’m not a horror movie aficionado, and I still love the episodes. I am a true crime aficionado though, and this is great stuff. And the “What the hell?” segment? Brilliant!!! You guys are great. The psychological aspect is super interesting, but I’m guessing one of you also has some film or TV experience. It shows...Keep up the great work!

Horror fans rejoice!

I have a lot of friends that I’m sharing this show with!! Big time horror film fans!!
