EPISODE 204: Ghostwatch

This week, your host puts on her little deerstalker cap and brings guest Ryan (@cursegoat) along across the pond to watch... 1992 British... pseudo reality horror quasi mockumentary (???) Ghostwatch! Hence the Sherlock Holmes look, sort of, like he was more of a private detective than a investigative reporter but— look, the point is we're in the UK and these BBC hosts really scared the shit outta a bunch of brits and we're gonna talk about what a good goddamn job they did. First, though, we speak at length about the Saw franchise, because we gotta, and cook up a…
