It's that time of year again when things get SPOOKY! We're rolling out all the Halloween stops all month long to celebrate the month of horror and one of our favorite months of the year, and we're also celebrating the start of our fourth annual Epic Film Guys Horror Challenge! That's right, it's OCTOBER, and... wait a minute, where's Justin?
For the second year in a row I'm kicking off the month of October sans-Justin and sans-Saucey, the two biggest horror fans on the show by far, as Justin is in Washington D.c. watching an early release of First Man and the Sauce is in Los Angeles at the world premiere of Best F(r)iends hanging out with Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero! Thus, left to my own devices, I had to call in some last-minute backup, and we're thrilled to welcome to the show- for the first time ever!- Shawn from the Stories of Yore and Yours podcast!
On this week's show, we've got a lot of housekeeping to take care of before Justin sneaks in a quick review of the new slasher Hellfest! We're wrapping up the Fitness Challenge, and we're kicking off the EFG Horror Challenge for the fourth year in a row. Check out the details and links down below! After that, Shawn and I delve into a massive Epic Previews as we tackle SEVEN trailers! Hear our thoughts on Creed II, Bumblebee, Captain Marvel, Dark Phoenix, Holmes and Watson, Rocketman, and They'll Love Me When I'm Dead!
Remember, we need Apple Podcasts reviews and we want to get to 150 by the end of the year! Find the link below and rate/review/subscribe to the show; when we hit 150, everyone who has left a review will be entered to win one of three $25 gift cards or numerous other prizes; just our way of giving back and saying thank you for your support. We'll see you at the movies!
