On the second October episode for 2015, the boys take a long look at Italian horror films.  We talk about why they are unique and the impact they've had on the horror genre.  The classic films of Mario Bava, Dario Argento, Lucio Fulci, and others are discussed.  We focus on giallos, zombie movies, and cannibal films, as well as other oddities.   But first we look at this October's new horror releases with brief reviews of Crimson Peak, Goosebumps, Hotel Transylvania 2, and talk about the unique experience of seeing an old school horror host go completely off the rails in a live setting.

Join the guys for an in-depth, exhaustive examination of EVERY major (and some pretty minor) film and TV adaptation of King's work. Spurned psychics, rabid dogs, overzealous fangirls, haunted hotels, biblical plagues, and things in the mist - they're all here, and more. And remember, just like the Monster Squad taught us, Stephen King Rules!
