Nolan is joined by Horrorella, Philip Yount, and Thomas Foster to discuss Tobe Hooper’s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1986) and Rob Zombie’s The Devil’s Rejects (2005). The group catches up on their latest discoveries before hitting the road with two of the most infamous homicidal families in horror cinema.
Nolan is joined by Ben McBride and Paul Farrell to tackle George A. Romero’s Dawn Of The Dead (1978) and Zack Snyder’s Dawn Of The Dead (2004). The group discusses what new horror they discovered during the Halloween season before trying to wait out the apocalypse in two different zombie-infested malls.
Nolan is joined by Kat Adams, Philip Yount, and Thomas Foster to discuss Drew Goddard’s The Cabin In The Woods (2012) and Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead’s
Resolution (2012). Thomas shares his personal horror movie recommendation and everyone discusses what new horror they’ve been keeping up with before the group takes a weekend trip to the woods with this double feature about derelict cabins that demand more than the usual upkeep.
On a very special bonus episode, Nolan is joined by William Mahaffey, Festival Director of the upcoming Knoxville Horror Film Fest, which is running from Friday, October 20th through Sunday, October 22nd at the Regal Downtown West Cinema 8 in Knoxville, Tennessee (tickets available here).

Nolan is joined by Ben McBride, Horrorella, and Paul Farrell to discuss Joseph Ruben’s The Stepfather (1987) and Adam Wingard’s The Guest (2014). The group discusses two major theatrical horror releases as well as what they’ve been watching lately before welcoming this double feature of psychotic, too-good-to-be-true strangers into the family.
While most fans enjoy horror all year round, Halloween season is a particularly special time of year. As it’s (perfectly) described in Trick ‘r Treat, Halloween (a.k.a. Samhain) is the night “when the barrier between the living and the dead [is] thinnest.” I’d argue that the entire Halloween season — from the first crisp, cool days of fall all the way through All Hallows’ Eve — possesses an air of magic. As such, most horror lovers — myself included — tend to want to cram as many horror movies into this season as possible, as if it were some ancient ritual which might allow all sorts of ghosts and goblins to pass into our reality.
