Show Notes

Spooky season is officially upon us, and here at JoAG, we think it's important to send you into the most wonderful time of the year equipped with enough recommendations to keep the whole family bathed in horror all month long. In this two part episode, we delve into our top picks for everyone from the horror n00b to the seasoned horror head. 

Part One Highlights:

  • We jump right into our normal level recs: movies for having a few "tins" and a laugh with some friends. Good natured jump scares and gross outs
  • We talk about the art of "dread" 
  • Mark comes up with more "cores" 
  • We discuss why we love old school Tim Burton and Spielberg films
  • We close out with our expert level recommendations: stuff you only watch if you're ready for a bad time. Don't assemble your friends to watch these if you want to keep them.

Don't forget to listen to part 1 if you missed it! Then hit us up on twitter @jackofallgraves to tell us what you're watching and yell at us about what we missed!
