  1. Just started this episode but had to say something as soon as I heard Josh say Videodrome, I got very excited. Please please discuss Videodrome as it is one of my favorites, though I would’nt consider it horror, I would love to hear your takes on that one. Also, I want to say I just discovered you podcast about two weeks ago and my my what a deprived life I’ve been living. I listened to all of your Halloween episodes during the course of the last week. Thank you for doing what you do as I pretty much have no one to talk to about horror movies with so this may scratch an itch. Thanks!

    • @SnowyOtter:
      We’ll discuss “Videodrome,” for sure. And yes, you’re right. A couple of these movies are a little bit of a stretch for the Horror genre, but we’re aiming to address consumerism and horror, and the former isn’t very prevalent in the latter. So, yeah, we’re stretching it a bit. Even so, we hope you dig it! Thanks for writing.

  2. I’m an Arkansas resident and spend a lot of quality time with friends in Texarkana. There’s a whole group of folk who are into the serial murderer event/franchise. If you’re ever in AR, we can hit all the spots!!

    On the subject of subway horror movies, there’s an OK-ish movie called Stag Night, which is the old cannibals underground/survival narrative. I have revisited Town that Dreaded Sundown (76 & 14) a few times over the last month, but I never even finished Stag Night.
