It's Spooky September! Sure it's not October yet, but For this episode - Elric and Brian are taking the idea that they've used in the past for Exploitation and transferring it to a "Horror Sampler" idea. In this case the categories covered include a film pick each in the categories of Slasher, Supernatural, Creature Feature, Foreign Language Horror and of course a Wild Card Spot. Hopefully this serves as a nice primer for your Horror movie viewing options as you ramp up to the Halloween season!

For this very special episode, we are doing something we almost never do - which is release a Patreon Exclusive episode into our main feed so all the listeners can have a chance to hear what it is we do in terms of the bonus content over on our Patreon. This is one of our Monthly "Hangout Episodes" where we discuss what we've been watching, offer Blu-ray, streaming and film book picks and also have some kind of main topic as well. This Hangout episode is one we actually thought about as a regular episode at one point and it has to do with each of us catching up with some films that have been recommended on the show in the past that we've meant to watch but hadn't gotten around to until now. This episode was a lot of fun to research and record and we hope you enjoy. Big big thanks to our Patreon supporters who made this possible!
