Every horrorhound's favorite month is upon us, and to celebrate, I'll be dishing out film recommendations for every day in October. I hope you enjoy the month with some good movies, even if they aren't ones I recommend! Today's Pick: Ghostbusters (1984)
The grand experiment continues. In this second episode, we discuss the art-house drama, Tusk, and the career of its creator, Kevin Smith. There's also Batman, Disney Channel movies, and an overall lack of respect for anything resembling a format. We'll get there eventually.Hope you enjoy listening, and please leave questions, comments and criticisms either here, at our SoundCloud page (follow us on SoundCloud too!), or tweet at us.

Something I feel truly awful about is not completing my "31 Days of Drew" Halloween recommendation articles last year. Horror is my favorite genre in all of fiction, and October is the month where it's okay for people who aren't as into horror to delve into it. Due to my personal and professional life getting super crazy near the end of last October, I just didn't take the time to finish the remaining few posts. This year, it's going to be different. Instead of trying to write throughout the month of October, I did the smart thing and wrote all thirty-one articles this past month. Now all I have to do is remember to post them each day, and if I can't do that, then I should just retire from my Internet ramblings completely. For those of you who would like to see my unfinished articles from last year (I got so close too!), I've compiled all the links here for your clicking pleasure. I hope you'll stick around for the upcoming month. I promise you, we'll make it to Halloween this time!
And so it begins. My best friend, Nick Murray, joins me for an ongoing podcast where we talk about the most important topics in the world: movies, television shows, video games, music, comic books etc. This first episode has us trying to tackle the most layered show in TV history, The Wire.

Every horrorhound's favorite month is upon us, and to celebrate, I'll be dishing out a personal pick from the genre for every day in October. Some will be obvious and rather unoriginal (sorry that I like movies other people like), while some will be a little more oddball and off-the-wall. Some may even challenge your idea of what constitutes a "horror" movie. Regardless, I hope you enjoy the month with some good movies, even if they aren't ones I recommend!
Today's Pick: The Return of the Living Dead (1985)
As I've mentioned quite a few times during the 31 Days of Drew, the 1980's were a golden era of splatstick horror gems. But, if there was one horror movie that captured that aesthetic, tone and energy perfectly, there's no question it would be The Return of the Living Dead. Filled with great effects, a new take on zombies and one of the bleakest but funniest endings ever, this could very well be the high watermark of the entire decade.
