Black Christmas is now what I consider a cult classic. Made in Canada with a budget of $620,000, it's the type of Home Invasion that the Sorority Girls didn't have a take part in. The only thing's that still lay a mystery within this film, who was the this maniac that went back to his home? What happened and how did it become what it was, a safe place for ladies. Or so that's what they thought. This film relied on practical effects and actually won 2 awards, which with horror films nowadays you don't really see as much.
Silent Night Deadly Night is another classic, once tried getting banned but it never succeeded. Made within America on $1,065,000 (estimated), which in the 80's that's a pretty impressive amount. Billy who once was a nice child, was forever changed when he witnessed his own parents murder from a man wearing a Santa Claus suit. Only to be abused and raised from an Orphanage with Mother Superior who thought, teaching to punish those that are naughty at any means necessary. Could that really fix a troubled past? Or could it possibly trigger it to make Billy go on a rampage.
On this Episode we had Stacy Cox and Ken Artuz from DecayMag.com. And Dan Lee, from Danno of the Dead.

Paul sat down with Ken from DecayMag and we discussed some various topics from Zombies, Child's Play (Reboot), Layers of Fear and more. Mainly Zombies though...
Zombies: How they started and how we see them today. Also what are considered some Zombie films to fall into the category?
Child's Play Reboot: No original voice for Chucky? No longer a Good Guy? Is he a Robot and not a Doll?
Layers of Fear 2: The original took on a evil artist, number two takes on a evil actress. Coming 2019.
More: Other video games, and more Zombies.

A group of high-school kids set out to play a Halloween prank at an abandoned house, but once they enter they become victims of a demonic witch who has set her wrath upon them.
Also with the superstition of mirrors, while urban legends of old “Witch Houses” for a good Halloween night scare couldn’t be a bad idea? Right…. Read the FULL Review we did for the film by clicking here.
We are joined by none other than the man behind the directing, Alex Merkin.
Hear what Alex has to say about horror today, the challenges he dealt with. And how possibly House of the Witch. Needs recogonition.

Last year on November 9th 2017, marked Lake Dead's 10th Anniversary. Part of the 8 Films to Die For that lasted for four years before taken a heist, it then returned as the After Dark Originals. By 2015, 8 Films to Die For came back with 8 new films. Below is a little description of Lake Dead, for those that may not have seen it yet.
"Three sisters and a group of their friends take a trip to the home of the recently deceased grandfather -- who died a particularly grisly death -- to learn more about the promise of an inheritance, only to encounter a family of psychos who have taken up residence in the old man's cabin."
Originally, we talked with Daniel and Ryan Coughlin last year when we first got together to discuss Ditch Day or Ditch Day Massacre depending on where in the world you are from. About possibly sitting down and talking about Lake Dead, they both agreed. When the time came to ask, Daniel kept in contact with Trevor Torseth aka "Kane Lake". One of the brothers that helped run the family business. So what better way to talk Lake Dead? Especially after celebrating it's 10th Anniversary. And who knows maybe Lake Dead 2 could happen in the future, as long as it falls into the right hands for the job.
Trevor is known for a few acting roles from American Horror Story, Bones and more. When not acting, he writes music to help himself achieve something other than acting. Thats where The Rollaways came to be.
Now as for the Interview, thats if you wanna call it that. I'd call it a Inter-Round Table discussion, it was great that Trevor was asking us questions while asking Daniel and Ryan and vise versa. I hope you enjoy this inter-round table just as much as we all did! And as always Daniel Coughlin, Ryan Coughlin and Trevor Torseth are always welcomed back. Stay Scary everyone.
