Happy Halloween! What films do you watch each October? That is a question that fascinated Doc and this week’s co-host, Dave Dreher. So, the two joined forces and compiled a list of eight (8) horror films they watch each October to celebrate Halloween. Classic with Vincent Price, Boris Karloff and Lon Chaney, Jr. along with newer films like the terrific anthology film, Trick R Treat. Doc and Dave sit back for an hour and reminisce about the films that put them in the festive Halloween spirit.
