This week we take our first steps into The Haunting of Hill House. Before celebrating Mike Flanagan's Netflix miniseries we make a stop at the first feature film adaptation of Shirley Jackson's classic, 1963's The Haunting. (We agreed that Robert Wise could have used some ghosts in his haunting movie.)

Happy Halloween! We welcome back podcaster (Miskatonic Musings!) and author of Farmington Correctional, Sean M. Thompson. We talk about his books, mental illness, sleepwalking, and dive into Brad Anderson's low budget gem, Session 9.

Here is Sean's Amazon page where you can find a lot of his work.

To celebrate our 150th episode we're celebrating the end of the world! We talk Apocalypticism, the study of doomsdays across different cultures and theologies. Having some fun with the idea, we focus on three end of the world comedies, Edgar Wright's The World's End, Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg's This is the End, with The Happening in between. For M. Night Shyamalan's Mark Wahlberg-helmed disaster we recorded our audio commentary and edited it down to the best parts for your listening pleasure.

After three years of podcasting we've amassed quite a collection of sketches and bonus content. So while we approach our 150th episode, we're having a look back and doing our very first Clip Show!

We take a look at the Netflix true-crime docuseries "The Staircase". Leaving spoilers for the second half of this episode, we take a deep dive into Kathleen Peterson's mysterious death and the court case surrounding Michael Peterson. Exploring the docuseries and beyond, we offer some armchair sleuthing as well as other sources for the listener to explore the case.

Long overdue, we take on Torture Porn and analyze it's place in modern culture. Comparing notes and how they've aged, we talk James Wan and Leigh Whannell's SAW (2004), and Eli Roth's Hostel (2005).

We're back talking about music in our favorite (and classic) horror movies. We analyze a few classics and talk about their production. Mindy talks theory, influences and how Bernard Herrmann is the Bach of movie composers. Check out Werewolves in Siberia here: https://werewolvesinsiberia.bandcamp.com/

In our first part of our Sounds of Horror series we're talking about movie music. John Carpenter is back to score Halloween, and records and CDs are outselling music downloads, so it's a great time to talk about movie scores.

We talk about some favorite director/musician combinations and the origins of putting music to film.

With our eyes on the sky we explore the field of UFOs—talking old and new declassified material and phenomena. To close out, we talk two classic alien abduction movies: Communion (1989) and Fire in the Sky (1993). And the history of probings!
