This week, everyone else is talking about the 2018 Netflix film "Bird Box" so why shouldn't we? Just a fair warning: this is a new movie and we are going to spoil it, so if you're intending to watch it, watch it first.

You know, we consider ourselves professionals here in the horror game. We take our job seriously and that means sometimes looking into the belly of the beast: the most grotesque of the grotesque, things that will keep you awake at night. With that in mind, we're kicking off Season 5 with what may be the ultimate horror film. It's 2003's "Love Actually." 

We've never done another rom-com, so instead just go listen to the episode we did on the rom-dram (?) "Days of Thunder." It's Episode 76, labeled "???? (1989)."

After a few weeks of the horror equivalent of junk food (except like, not even good junk food like Doritos, bad junk food like pizza with hot dogs in the crust), we decided to detox with a beautiful horror classic: the 1976 Brian DePalma/Stephen King film "Carrie." Special topics for your consideration include: god's little punishments, concern about John Travolta's basic abilities, the magic of Piper Laurie, prom talk/tuxedo talk and sultry Jesus. 

Can't get enough DePalma? Top off with Episode 13- "Phantom of the Paradise" and Episode 27- "Sisters." Let's not forget about Stephen King! We've discussed a TON of his movies so please just listen to my favorite of our King episodes, Episode 66- "Thinner."
