Paul Elard Cooley
Horror author and podcaster for Shadow
joins the show. In this edition, we discuss many
aspects of the Horror film genre, including some specific titles
that we like, and others we don't. This is the first half of the

Halloween and his work in general is discussed.

letting up anytime soon.
