Nolan is joined by Paul Farrell and Philip Yount — as well as special guest Trace Thurman from the Horror Queers podcast — to discuss Jacques Tourneur’s Curse Of The Demon (1957) and Sam Raimi’s Drag Me To Hell (2009). The crew share their thoughts on recent horror releases, new discoveries, and rewatches before a vindictive curse comes to pass and drags them all to hell, kicking and screaming.
