Spookshow Anniversary Special

We celebrate five years of the Spookshow by discussing a year’s worth of horror movie watches and seeing where they rank on our spooky scale.

We made it! Five whole years of the All-American Spookshow. Come celebrate with Josh, Donny & Professor Smoak (Will is sick) as we take advantage of the one time a year we can re-rate the movies we’ve watched throughout the past calendar year.

The episode covers brief discussions of all films covered in episodes 124-178 of the podcast. The films discussed range from undisputed classics to modern gems, from films the Spookshow crew loved to films they loathed. It includes the horror features from the podcast highlighted on this site, as well as films from the Cannon Films catalog, cult classics, spaghetti westerns, action films, acclaimed dramas, and campy comedies.

If you’ve missed any of the previous episodes of the show, make sure you listen to this anniversary special to get a taste of what you missed and find out which episodes you need to prioritize catching up on.

Horror films discussed include the Cronenberg classic The Fly (1986), one of my personal favorites, The Witch (I wish they would have had me on this episode to bump that rating up!), and the polarizing recent release Halloween Ends (which gets a lashing from the guys).

Other horror films include Tales From the Crypt: Demon KnightDr. Giggles, Dawn of the Dead (1978), Black Friday (2021), Blood Beat, The Advent Calendar, Shaun of the Dead, Hellraiser: Bloodline, Tucker and Dale vs. Evil, X-Ray (Hospital Massacre), Hellraiser: Inferno, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Evil Dead II, Hellraiser: Hellseeker, Videodrome, Evil Dead (2013), Mother’s Boys, Midsommar, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Don’t Look Up, The Book of Eli, 28 Weeks Later, The Thing (1982), Dawn of the Dead (2004), The Curse of Frankenstein (Hammer Horror), and another film I wish ranked higher, Mandy.

In addition, there are plenty of non-horror films covered, such as Memento, Masters of the Universe, Die Hard, Goodfellas, Fight Club, Rad, and many more.

Stay to the end for a bonus discussion of Crapsterpiece Theater films covered on the Spookshow Patreon, including the infamous House of the Dead, Thankskilling 3, Elves, Freddy Got Fingered, Cats, Caddyshack 2, The Wicker Man (2006), Disaster Movie, Barb Wire, and Spice World.


It’s the Spookshow’s five-year anniversary, and we’ve been celebrating by revisiting absolute horror classics. Of course, we had to talk about one of the most revered and influential horror films of all time, Halloween, and there’s no better time to give that one a listen.
