Halloween, Hellevator, and Witch Hunters It's the time of year when in the dark of night, monsters and ghouls cause that cheery glow of fright


It’s a short but sweet show on the doorstep of Halloween, when people focus more on the scary and what they can do to avoid it… or make it more intense.

We start out with an interview with The Horror Twins, Jen and Sylvia Soska, and their new project with Blumhouse, “Hellevator”, a competition reality show currently airing on Game Show Network.

Next, we have Noah and Daren with a review of “The Last Witch Hunter”, and surprisingly, the opinions are mixed (and reversed) on this action-fantasy feature. You can also watch their review on our YouTube Channel.

Reviewing “Tales of Halloween” A horror anthology of ten short films that vary wildly in entertainment levels

Tales of Halloween

This is an entertaining collection, but not exceptionally so. For some reason, most of the scary stories weren’t very scary at all, but the funny ones and the quirky ones all hit the mark.
