    Thanks to a helpful listener making a movie suggestion/recommendation at juust the right time, our next episode will be reviewing Terrifier. A lovely Netflix tale about a friendly clown. At least that’s what I think it’s about.

Insightful and fun

I love horror movies but few of my friends watch them. Listening to Bloodlust is hugely entertaining and fills that void with really thoughtful commentary and discussion.

I likes it!

Engaging

Super fun horror review podcast with a conversational atmosphere. I find myself talking back all the time. I especially enjoy how they take on a good mix of blockbuster type films, streaming onlys, and some indie stuff. Duds and wins- no sycophants here. If you’re a Twin Peaks fan, their “Our Log Does Not Judge” installments chronicling each episode of The Return is especially enjoyable. (Yay Sandra!) Thanks for making my commute fly by :)
