In between 'proper' episodes (where we delve into a particular film or franchise) we'll be doing bonus episodes where we talk about wider trends in sequel culture, sequel news, new trailers and whatever the hell we like.

Practical effects vs CGI!

 

Hocus Pocus!

 

John Carpenter fights a Zombie!

 

Clowns!

Allen and Chris take a break from the city and head to the idyllic surroundings of Crystal Lake…hey what was that noise?

 

On this episode we tackle the first three parts of the Friday the 13th film series, one of the most iconic franchises in horror.

 

Allen is unsurprisingly a super-fan while Chris had not seen any of the films until the week before they recorded this episode.

 

We talk the evolution of slasher movies, 3D gimmicks, final girls, and how long until Jason Voorhees becomes the Jason we all know and fear.
