Horror 101 – Episode 106: Intruder (1989)

He’s just CRAZY bout this store!

We’re going to start the year by focusing on a Scott Spiegel film from 1989. Now if that name sounds familiar its because Spiegel co-wrote Evil Dead 2 with Sam Raimi. This is a cheese filled slasher that came WAY late in the game. It is, essentially most of the crew that gave us Evil Dead 2 returning to give us an ultra low budget last hurrah of 80s gory goodness. We hope you enjoy as we give the Horror 101 treatment to Intruder

Horror 101 – Episode 97: 1408

April 30th, 2020

No one lasts more than an hour!

Since our theme is haunted places this year and since most of us are now shut in and effectively trapped in our own homes we decided to cover a film thats based off a Stephen King short story. This is the perfect movie to focus on in these times. Cause if you’re going to be trapped somewhere at least its not in an evil room thats trying to destroy you. Which is precisely whats happening to John Cusack in this film. Join us as we give the Horror 101 treatment to Mikael Håfström’s 1408.
