Episode 56: Cult Horror Movies

14611081_1105879096127540_8980095361735976117_n

Once again, we managed to get a horror movie episode of this podcast cursed – from broken and stolen laptops to WiFi that broke down, we experienced a number of scheduling errors and thus didn’t quite get this out before Hallowe’en. But this way, you can continue listening to people talking about scary movies this November! We are joined by special guest Jessica Manzo from www.frenchtoastsunday.com as well and would like to thank her for that 🙂

PS: We deeply apologize for the background noise in this episode, we are not quite sure where it came from, but some of us had to record from our phones so that might be the issue. There are also no songs this time around.

Structure:
00:00 – 02:00 – Chick chatter & Introductions
02:00 – 10:38 – Guest questionnaire
10:38 – 39:57- The chicks and Jess discuss The Evil Dead, Videodrome and Suspiria
39:57 – 47:26 – Plugs and Goodbyes
