The final installment of our inaugural (and final?) Four Week of Shrieks comes to us courtesy of good friend of the show, Vishnu. Blood on Satan's Claw is unlike anything else we've watched this month, but is that a good thing or a bad thing? This tale involves a group of sinister teenagers, helping Satan rebuild himself by collecting body parts from locals. Wasn't that also the plot from The Twelfth Night?
Now that we're at the end of October, we'd love to hear what you thought of our attempts to talk horror and the truncated format of our recent shows, so drop us a line at email@example.com or 206-338-0793

We are nearing the end of October, and that means that Four Weeks of Shrieks is also coming to an end. Kat decided that it was time to go old school slasher and have us visit Camp Crystal Lake with the original Friday the 13th. It had been a very long time since either of us had seen it. So long, in fact, that Kat had pretty much forgotten the identity of the killer. That was cool, as it was as if we were watching it with fresh eyes.

For this installment of Four Weeks of Shrieks we go waaaaay back to 1935 to check out Bride of Frankenstein directed by James Whale. The sets are gorgeous, the make-up is glorious and don't get us started on that Dr. Pretorius! Does this universally (get it?) lauded film still have a strong impact nearly 80 years after its release? Tune in to find out.
Feedback keeps us happy, so please drop us a line at email@example.com or 206-338-0793

Kat and Scott are back together and ready to continue the Four Weeks of Shrieks with a review of Children of the Corn from 1984. It is based on a Stephen King short story and stars Sarah Connor and that guy from Thirtysomething. Kat picked it to see if Malachi and Isaac still have the ability to scare us all these years later? Are these kids really subsisting on corn? Who told Linda Hamilton that those shorts fit? We explore these and other issues, so tune in!

Four Weeks of Shrieks continues with a sojourn into the modern era with a review of The Crazies. In an attempt to make amends for some earlier choices that were less than horrific, Scott picked this remake of George Romero's early 70s film about a small town dealing with a rather nasty virus and an even nastier government. Was it crazy enough to work? Is Timothy Olyphant actually in law enforcement? Due to some travel and overall 'out of towness', we'll be taking a break for a handful of days, but we will be back with a vengeance early next week.
Feedback can be sent to email@example.com or 206-338-0793.

For this episode, we sat down to watch this creepy little film about bouncing balls and broken windows. After all these years, does it still get under Scott's skin? It was Kat's first time seeing it - did she find it haunting or hokey? Tune in to find out. It's our shortest show ever, so if you ever wanted to take us for a test drive, this is the time!
We'd love to hear from you at 206-338-0793 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Scott was under the impression that Frenzy was a true horror movie that it would fit nicely into the Four Weeks of Shrieks. Horror? Not so much, but still pretty thrilling and stylish. Fear not, Kat will get us back on track next time but for now tune in for a look at Hitchcock's penultimate film. Gentlemen are expected to wear jacket and tie.
We'd love a feedback frenzy, so get in touch with us at 206-338-0793 or email@example.com

We continue October's 4 Weeks of Shrieks with 1963's The Haunting, a notable entry in the Old Dark House genre directed by the versatile Robert Wise. Did we find it haunting or were we left wanting? There's only one way to find out - have a listen. We were also able to tackle some feedback in this episode. We'd love to hear from you, so drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or 206-338-0793.

Four Weeks of Shrieks continues with 1981's often forgotten supernatural wolf-themed film, Wolfen. There's a lot going on here, Albert Finney has great hair and NYC looks wonderfully filthy. All of that being said, does it all add up? We'd love to hear from you, so send us an email to email@example.com or call us at 206-338-0793.

Our 1st Annual Four Weeks of Shrieks kicks off with a look at Dario Agento's 1977 classic Suspiria. Kat let out a Hall of Fame shriek during our screening and provides an instant replay during our recording session. We will be cranking out the horror reviews at a pretty good clip this month, but don't let that stop you from sending us feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org or 2060338-0793

This week, we reenter the world of film noir with a review of Orson Welles' 1947 The Lady From Shanghai. It is a film filled with crazy characters and and an even crazier murder plot. Did it leave us befuddled or bedazzled? Tune in to find out. We also dip our toes into the new television season with our thoughts on Pan Am, Ringer, The Playboy Club and even X-Factor. The feedback we received this week made us giddy with joy, so please keep it up good people, by emailing us at email@example.com or leaving a voicemail at 206-338-0793.
