This week we talked about the classic 1980’s slasher film, The Burning. We discussed what we loved about the show and Koji (the hater) talked about what he didn’t like about it—was it a porn? But the best part of this episode is when Quentin recounts how this sits in the history of slasher movie history and Koji reminisces about summer camp.
This week we’re asking our listeners to tell one friend about the show and tell them why you enjoy listening to the Midnight Watchers.
You can watch the whole episode here:
A former summer camp caretaker, horribly burned from a prank gone wrong, lurks around an upstate New York summer camp bent on killing the teenagers responsible for his disfigurement.
