Having a good premise is half the battle. The other half is execution. In Episode 135 of HORROR MOVIE PODCAST,we review the new Director’s Cut of a film with a great haunted house premise called Hell House LLC (2016). We also review 78/52 (2017), a documentary about the meticulously executed shower scene from Alfred Hitchcock’s classic Psycho (1960). And as with other Frankensteinian episodes, we bring you a lot of other Horror-related chatter and mini reviews. Join us!
