Hack or Slash - A Horror Movie Review Podcast
Hack or Slash
Each week a panel of horror fans discuss horror movies past and present. We dissect new releases, compare originals to reboots, and tell you whether or not the movies are a hack (a waste of time) or a slash (totally killer - pun intended). We’ve changed a lot over the last two years, including changing up our team. For the best experience, start with episode 057.
