All month, we’re celebrating our fifth Horror Octorbor by taking on a slew of ‘Vs.’ horror movies! To start off, actor Andrew Saenz (of the upcoming indie film El Algun Lugar) joins us to talk about Ronny Yu’s 2003 sloppy horror mash-up Freddy vs Jason. When Camp Crystal Lake’s most murderous goalie faces off against the flambeed invader of dreams, what happens? Well, not a whole lot as it turns out – just cringey nu-metal fights and another set of dumb teenagers lined up for the slaughter. Still, we’ve got a custom cocktail and drinking rules to get you through!
(Thanks to our sponsor Field Notes as part of the Chicago Podcast Coop!)

DRINKING RULES FOR FREDDY VS JASON:

Kia taunts Freddy, “You’re not even scary…you’re not even scaaary.”
