Blair Erickson sticks around to discuss one of his favorites films with the crew in the What You Have Been Watching segment, Spike Jonze’sÂ Her. It’s a complete love fest for the film as Dave, Thomas, Vixen and Blair go over all the highlights of the film praising its story, message, themes, acting and directing with Dave especially high on the film’s script.

01:45:18-Â Horror News of the Week – 01/13/2014
Dave caps off the night with the horror news of the week. No one is in favor of aÂ Friday the 13thÂ film without Jason Voorhees, even if Doc is in favor of the found footage angle. Again, the entire crew would prefer to stick to the mainÂ Walking DeadÂ story line instead of diluting it with a spin off – at least, at this point. TheÂ ClownÂ trailer looks fantastic! There’s a new trailer and artwork for the El Rey TV show based onÂ From Dusk Til Dawn. And what is this rumor of aÂ True BloodÂ film in 2016?
