Welcome to the Junior Year Episode 25 of the Horror Pod Class.  My name is Tyler and I am the editor in chief of Signal Horizon a company dedicated to exploring horror in and out of the classroom.  When I am not managing signal horizon I am a teacher at a local hs here in KC Missouri.  Tonight I am joined by my cohost and monster ambassador here at SH, award winning writer Orrin Grey. (Say HI Orrin)   Today we will take some time to talk about what we have seen and read lately explore some free horror on the internet and finish with an in depth discussion of the movie Haunt

What we are excited about.

Tyler: Penny Dreadful, Blood Quantum,

RT Summary: A group of friends look for the thrill of a lifetime when they enter a haunted house that supposedly brings their deepest darkest fears to life. Things get dangerous, however, when they realize that haunted house’s scares may be more than make-believe.

History of Commericial Haunted Houses

1937 Party Pamphlet

An outside entrance leads to a rendezvous with ghosts and witches in the cellar or attic. Hang old fur, strips of raw liver on walls, where one feels his way to dark steps….Weird moans and howls come from dark corners, damp sponges and hair nets hung from the ceiling touch his face….Doorways are blockaded so that guests must crawl through a long dark tunnel….At the end he hears a plaintive ‘meow’ and sees a black cardboard cat outlined in luminous paint…”
