Shocktober is brilliant. Watching 31 horror movies in a month is a true challenge and a great way to steep in the Halloween season. What is not so brilliant about Shocktober is that most horror movies are TERRIBLE, and watching 31 of them makes you wonder if you even like them anymore. Halfway through the month you feel like giving up because your ocular cavities are filled to the brim with fake blood and boobs.
Every October we participate in Shocktober, and this year we decided to do a wrap up episode discussing our highlights and lowlights from the upsetting overload of horror.

The Grab Bag is BACK! Almost a year ago we terrorized our listeners with a random assortment of terrors, and we are doing it again! Your butts should be held, and your y’alls should be ready for this, because we are going to pull some horrors out of the nightmare bag!
The best part of an urban legend is that it doesn’t matter how ridiculous it is, it still gets under your skin. Does it make logical sense that saying a phrase three times into a mirror would conjure a ghost child? Of course it doesn’t. Will you wake up in a bathtub full of ice with your kidneys missing? They wouldn’t leave you alive! It there actually something under your bed? Nope. It’s moved behind you.
This episode we discuss the the dos and don’ts of self medication, the true dangers of indoor fans and we look at the birth of a modern urban legend about vampires. We also have a public service announcement: please put away your Halloween decorations in a timely fashion. So many of them are actual corpses. Also, please put away your corpses.
Enjoy the episode! But first, maybe check the backseat of your car…
