It's a somber recording day tonight as we officially kick off the month of October here on the Epic Film Guys podcast, and our thoughts are with everyone affected by the devastating tragedy that unfolded in Las Vegas on Sunday night.
With Justin away in California for the next two weeks, we were left with a HUGE hole to fill to kick off Epic Film Guys horror season! Fortunately, I put the word out on twitter, and a very good friend of the show (and amazing podcaster), Deana of the Twisted Philly podcast, jumped at the chance to fill in! She's the host of a show all about the dark, twisted history of the city of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection, and if anyone can fill Justin's horror-loving shoes, it's her.
We're here this week with the kick-off to the annual Epic Film Guys horror challenge! Over in the Hobster's Dumpster, check in your flicks all month long and we'll discuss it in our horror challenge check-in segment! Also this week in EFG history, a show staple celebrates its second birthday, and we're talking news galore once again!
But, that's not why you're here. You're here for the HORROR! Deana and I watched An American Werewolf in London and I Am Not a Serial Killer for the show this week and we'll discuss both of those flicks, and then we're talking horror trailers in Epic Previews!
I want to give a huge thanks to Deana from Twisted Philly for being on the show this week. Please check out her amazing podcast at www.twistedphilly.com! We'll see you at the movies!!

Friends of the Show
We'd like to give a huge shout-out for a lot of the shows we're proud to call friends, and that we're proud to call ourselves fans of. We especially have to thank our brothers in Perth, Paul & Wayne of The Countdown Movie & TV reviews, who have opened us up to a huge audience halfway across the world. Particular thanks to Paul who has been an amazing friend and has been infinitely helpful in terms of getting honest feedback on the evolution of the show. A huge thank you to Emily from The Story Behind podcast, whose support and friendship have kept this show alive through some of its darkest days. A huge thank you to some of our biggest podcasting friends, from Mr. X at the Angry Old Man, Shane from Now That I'm Older, David from The Unwritable Rant, Adam from Everyone Has a Podcast, Ro from the World of Ro, the entire crew at Afterburn 739, Mat at the One Word, Go! show, Justin from So I Married a Movie Geek, and Deana from the Twisted Philly podcast. We're probably forgetting someone, so thank you to ALL of you! We truly do love and appreciate your support.
We also have to give a huge shout out to #PodernFamily for helping to increase our exposure, and safe to say without it we wouldn't have met a lot of the podcasters and fans we're proud to call friends. We also want to give a huge shout out to the #MoviePodSquad, a group of movie podcasters in the #PodernFamily who have come together for our mutual love of film.
