The boogeyman was real...Or was he?

This week, inspired by a listener, we're taking a good hard look at Staten Island. And it's not just Cropsey, there's the abandoned monastery, Kreischer Mansion, and even more that can't possibly fit.

We'll be back.

"I was proud of myself...for trying to understand you."

This week, Krissy has a cold, so we're doing something unusual!

WAY BACK in 2017, on a DIFFERENT podcast, we had a conversation with our mother Kathleen after she watched SCREAM for the first time.

The show is about so many other things too, but lets just revel in this wonderful conversation that is unburied for the first time in...

This episode is a punishment for Kristen.

Or…it was SUPPOSED to be.

Instead, we get a completely ENGROSSING introduction to a monster from a bygone era.

Why is The Phantom of the Opera SO compelling and creepy?!

The myth is real. Blair Witch 2 is a perfect movie.


For the FIRST TIME EVER, someone is going to take a CRITICAL look at Book of Shadows.

You'll be amazed at how many rabbit holes there are, and how deep they go.

It's honestly unbelievable.

It's SO much more than a board game. It's Murder!

But what makes CLUE tick? And why is that movie so incredible?

...And why do some people call it CLUEDO?

These answers and more! Along with plenty of praise for Tim Curry, Madeline Kahn, Christopher Lloyd, Michael McKean, and literally everyone else, because Clue slaps.

We volunteer as tribute! Or wait…that’s a bad idea…

The Hunger Games once took the world by storm.

But is the series over-rated or over-hated?

Does it even belong on this show?
