We dive deep into the 80s for our grim laughs this week. Catching up with Haunted Honeymoon (1986), Once Bitten (1985), and Joe Dante's The Burbs (1989). Meanwhile we've included a number of horror-themed comedy clips curated for your pleasure.
This week we took to the midtown outdoors to record our review of Alice Lowe's directorial debut Prevenge. The horror comedy will be theaters in NY & LA, and will be coming to SHUDDER on March 24th.

This week Mindy reminisces over two soundtrack-heavy horror staples: Tom Holland's Fright Night (1985) & Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight (1995)! She's joined by previous guest Jaxon Dillon-Fish, and Brian Carr to talk these two genre staples.
This week Darren's been watching a lot of films...we catch up and talk Rezort, A Cure for Wellness, and many more. Some good, but most bad, on this week's Lunch Hour Review.
Darren and Mindy bring in "Little Sister" director and Herschell Gordon Lewis expert/fanatic, Zach Clark to talk all things HGL.

From The Women in Caskets podcast, Jen & Dawn join us to talk about Films of the New French Extremity with Alexandra West (who wrote the book!).
