Want to watch the 50 best horror movies ever?

Late last year, some filmy types went and coughed up their idea of the best 50 horror movies … ever!!!

Three exclamation marks, indeed.

Myself and Ben, being of the horror movie persuasion, have decided to go through this list, watch every single one of them, and have a little talk about them.

 

Introducing ...

 

Horror Hangout

A podcast where two bearded film fans watch the best 50 horror movies … ever!!! … and talk about them.

We’re going to be touching all sorts of exciting topics. Such as the the storytelling, directing style, shit-your-pants-moments, trivia, and we'll even be grading each film from A - F.
