Episode 190 of Horror Movie Podcast is the perfect show to listen to with a cup of hot cocoa while a snowstorm rages outside. But watch yourself: the weather outside is frightful, but so are the ghosts indoors! Join your horror hosts Gillman Joel, Dr. Shock and Wolfman Josh, as they discuss specters in the snow with reviews of Ghost Story (1981) and Ghostkeeper (1982). They also bring you three wintery mini reviews currently Screaming Online at Shudder: The Mind’s Eye (2015), The Wrath (2019), and We Are Still Here (2015). Finally, Wolfman takes you into the Collector’s Crypt for a look at Arrow Video’s BluRay release of Demon Possessed aka The Chill Factor (1993).
