Found this because of Scream…

They did the full series of Scream as a rewatch about a year ago (before 5 came out) and really enjoyed the hosts, so even though I’m not a huge horror fan, I kept listening. It’s actually making me appreciate horror more, and I’ve been digging into their archives as I seek out some older classics.

Good podcast for horror fans

I came to the podcast for the Texas Chainsaw Massacre review and really enjoyed. Went back and have been listening to some older episodes.
