This week, our hosts Scott Kemper, Matt Brandenburg, and Michael Patrick Hicks discuss the Merrimack Halloween Book Festival and its panels on foreign cinema and horror versus thriller, as well as Stephen Chbosky's Imaginary Friends, Shudder's Creepshow episodes two and three, One Cut of the Dead and Hulu's Starfish, the director's cut of Midsommar, and John Hornor Jacobs' latest release, A Lush and Seething Hell. Then, it's on to a spoiler-filled discussion of Joyce Carol Oates's 1966 short story, "Where Are You Going, Where Have Been," its connection to the Pied Piper of Tuscon serial killer, and whether or not you can drive if you have hooves.
