The Horror Times: Where to Watch October’s Halloween Essentials

The Horror Times is a weekly horror movie watch-along podcast featuring original music and sketches from comedians & writers Tiana MillerLauren Lavín, and Dan Rice. New episodes every Friday from The Hard Times podcast network

With five Fridays in October to fill with stomach-flipping terror (plus jokes and songs about it), this month the creeps at The Horror Times are bringing you their Halloween essentials. Featuring some of the best, the worst, and the best-worst entries in the Halloween, Friday the 13th, and Nightmare on Elm Street franchises, a mid-’00s cult classic that pays homage to all of the above — plus a relatively bangable Craig T. Nelson.
