Comics, horror films and more!

I love it when they review the old Hammer Studios horror films, especially around Halloween. Having a married couple in the discussion really keeps it from getting too serious. Check it out!

Fun!

I started listening because I heard about their October episodes on Monster Kid Radio, episodes that discuss a classic horror movie and related comic book. I've got to finish all of last year's so I'll be ready for this year. The husband and wife banter is funny, probably familiar to anyone and his/her significant other.
