Scream 101 Podcast

Hosted by Brennan Klein and Sergio Huerta

A horror movie review podcast where a horror buff and his non-horror friends watch and review a scary movie ranging from the retro to the modern to the terrifying to the bizarre. Every month, they follow a different genre that neither of them know much about, starting with the hits and diving into the deeply obscure.

New episodes are available every weekend!
