Additional notes

We are currently working on a couple of reviews and interviews. First, we are working on scheduling our review of Summer of ’84 with our friends at Bloody Date Night.

We are also working on an episode remembering all the horrifying memories we have from the Scary Tales to tell in the Dark series. We have been excitedly anticipating the release of the feature film, and can’t wait to talk about it. That episode will be a 2 parter, as we will also talk to the director of the Scary Tales Documentary.

I’m also finishing up our episode of interviews out at Halfway to Halloween. Stayed tuned for that episode.
