Welcome back to our ongoing Guilty Pleasure’s bonus series! A series we begun as part of our friends Bloodhound Pix #HorrorNotFear campaign which ended back in June. But the show rolls on now that we are a firm fixture at the Morbidly Beautiful network. So, that we will be rolling on for a long time to come!
Alongside NHE host Scott Murphy to dive into this one we have a great former guest in the form of regular contributor director Adam Stovall (“A Ghost Waits”). Plus, making his pod debut we have film critic, podcaster and ’80s movies encyclopedia Drew McWeeny (The Last ’80s Newsletter).
