  • A must listen for horror fans!

    I have been listening for years and I have to say this is always in my weekly rotation for my playlists. Mike does a great job of exploring very relevant films and also obscure ones as well that you likely never heard of or just haven’t gotten around too. In appreciate his thoughtful breakdown from the social contexts, to the acting, score, cinematography, etc. His guests also tend to bring another layer of thoughtful discussion as well. more

  • Came for the Woman in Black, and couldn’t stop listening.

    Accidentally stumbled on this after becoming obsessed with the Woman in Black. Have been working my way through all the ghost/ folk horror and occult films. Love the way it’s presented and love the Letterboxd lists!

  • The absolute best

    I binged all of this show last year when I discovered it, subscribed to Patreon and I’m not binging all of that content too. This is the only show that I listen to the minute a new episode is released, it’s gotten me watching so many films I haven’t seen, and the Patreon subscription is worth it for new Fresh Blood and it’s recommendations alone. more
