Spooktober is here with SLUGFEST 2017!



It's the most wonderful time for some fear! 

It's time for We Love To Watch’s most sacred time of the year, Spooktober! (we’re PresyBOOtarians). Both of the Watchboys are trying to watch at least 31 new-to-us horror movies in celebration. As well, we have a whole slew of spooky surprises to celebrate the monster wonderful time of the year! 

SLUGFEST starts next week with 1988’s SLUGS by Juan Piquer Simón. 

Then, we're going to tackle the zombie camp classic by Fred Dekker, NIGHT OF THE CREEPS.

After that, we're going to watch a nice companion to Creeps, and also, one of James Gunn's first movies before he became a darling of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in SLITHER. We'll be joined by Morgan Runice, first time guest!

Then, we're going to end SLUGFEST with David Cronenberg's SHIVERS, aka, the Apartment Complex That Couldn't Stop Having Orgies. 

Like all good things, Slugfest must then come to an end, and with it, Spooktober...



We've got two more Spooky surprises for your Spooktober listening!

The first is Ernest Scared Stupid, for WLTW Presents: Hey Vern, It's a Podcast with Marcus Jones, and this time - featuring our own Aaron Armstrong as guest.

Then, we will finally cap our month with a Spooktober Special that will transition us into the George A. Romero Memorial Month in November - we're doing a three-way Spooktober Halloween Special that covers:

1. Resident Evil (2002) - the original horror game, remade with shinier graphics and some new content. See where the franchise all began. 

2. The script by George A. Romero and Peter Grumwald adapting that game.

3. The Paul W.S. Anderson adaptation of the source, Resident Evil. 

We're going to compare and contrast the source of Resident Evil and its two adaptations.

Here are what Aaron and I are watching on our own this month:

Happy Halloween, slugs and slugettes!
