Just kidding, we’ve got that too! We even have something for the documentary loving horror fan! Just sit down, relax and listen to Wes talk about all the amazing talent in this year’s films and watch the trailers of all our feature films.

Props, costumes, and film relics are the topics of this week’s show as Wes hosts James Azrael and Craig Champion of the Horror and SciFi Prop Preservation Association (HSPPA for short). The HSPPA is a not-for-profit museum containing a vast collection of screen-used and production made props that spans about every genre of the film industry
Wes, James, and Craig discuss how this incredible collection began, the technical aspects of transporting these treasured pieces, how they select content for each show, and what can be handled and what can’t. We also get a sneak peek at some amazing props from ASH VS THE EVIL DEAD, PUPPET MASTER, and other well-known films and shows.
In our regular features we get another round of announcements and cancellations as well as Joe Lewis’ analysis of the new Amazon Prime anthology series THEM.

The gang tackle all manner of topics including Shepis’ feelings on movie nudity, the movie she made with her husband during quarantine, her work on the CASUALTY FRIDAY podcast, and how much she loves doing conventions.
Plus, does a murder investigation/possession story work well together? We’ll find out as Joe Lewis shares his thoughts on the latest CONJURING movie, THE CONJURING: THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT.
Wes goes solo tonight as he welcomes actor, director, and former star of GHOST HUNTERS INTERNATIONAL, Scott Tepperman.
Scott and Wes chat about Scott’s time with GHI, where his interest within the paranormal realm truly stands, his acting and filmmaking career, and the virtues of VHS. Spoiler alert: a premature internet disconnection leaves us with a few unanswered questions. Thanks ZOOM.

The Booths discuss their new documentary film THE ATTACHED, open up about their passion for the process of filmmaking and their inspirations, and weigh in on supernatural experiences they’ve had during the making of their films.
