  1. Happy Holidays! I’ve been listening for quite a while, first time comment, so excuse the ramblings.

    Love the show! Podcasts are what make my time at work tolerable AND yours is one of (if not THE) best!

    I’m older than you all (57), but that don’t make me dead. I love old and new stuff. My parents used to take me and my younger brother to the drive-In. We watched either Horror or Westerns. I remember seeing 5 Million Years to Earth and Dracula Has Risen From The Grave at the Bel-Air on the southside of Indianapolis and I almost shit my pants. We saw what seemed like hundreds of horror films, from good to crap. We used to have a horror show host on channel 4 named Sammy Terry. The Greatest, in most local people’s opinion. I saw him live at the cinema in Mooresville along with the Hammer film Plague of the Zombies. It was awesome!

    The wife and I took my youngest boy, who was about 7 or 8 at the time (he’s now 20) to see The Grudge on it’s initial release. He loved it and has been hooked on horror ever since. My wife loves horror flix too EXCEPT The Exorcist. We can’t even say the title without her freaking!

    I find that the age of a film don’t mean diddley, if you have a little imagination, an open mind and tolerance, any film can be enjoyable! From 1910 Edison Frankenstein to 2016 Satanic. FUN STUFF!!! Anyway, keep up the great work and LOVE the extra long episodes!

  2. It’s Christmas day and I just listened to your Christmas episode. Great one as usual. I agree with Jay on the movie Frozen. I really liked that movie. I’m not really that critical if a movie entertains me that’s all I care about. I hope you all had a great Christmas and I have to say Little Buddy is awesome!! Josh, You need to get him his own podcast. He’s a natural.

  3. I’m so happy that Joshie recommended The Hateful Eight. It’s one of my favorite movies ever. It shot right at the top of my list right away and I dethroned Pulp Fiction as my favorite Tarantino movie. This is a must-see everyone. 10/10.

    • I completely agree. Jennifer Jason Lee was amazing. I liked everyone in the movie but she really stood out. I still haven’t seen Bone Tomahawk. I’m going to have to change that.

  4. Hey guys, great show! I am a podcast host myself and addicted listener of horror podcasts and keep hearing this message board referenced on the show. I did not know message boards like this still existed in the day of social media but it’s really cool you guys have a little family here!
    I have been posting on the Twitter page but it seems as if most of your online action is here so I just joined. Again, great show and keep it up. Hope to be getting to know some of you better very soon.
    I also agree with Jay on Frozen. It is my favorite movie from Adam Green.

  5. Jay, you do realize your 5.5 puts you in aggreance with the 96% of critics who you say were unfair to Shut In right? That would be a rotten score on Rotten Tomatoes.

    • Incorrect, Jeff Hammer.

      First of all, Rotten Tomatoes uses a 100-point scale, much like a grammar school grading program. So, let’s compare:

      I use a 10-point rating scale in which a 5.5 equals an “OK” movie rating and typically constitutes a rental or low-priority rental for me. In grade school, that would be an “F,” a failing letter grade, and on RT, yes, that would be a 55% which would be considered “rotten.”

      Again, for me, a 5.5 is passable and still a rental.

      And according to RT (which now has “Shut In” listed at 3%), the average critical rating is 2.8 out of 10, which you can plainly see, is far lower than my 5.5 rating.

      So, no, I wasn’t in agreement with those critics who were completely dismissive and dog-piled onto “Shut In.”

      Have you seen “Shut In,” Mr. Hammer? Watch it and tell me what you think. : )
