Remembering the Crazy 1976 TV Series MONSTER SQUAD!

In today’s TV landscape, horror fans are spoiled across all platforms when it comes to the type of programming they have to choose from.

Remembering Showtime’s MASTERS OF HORROR: Season Two

Ah ha! Victory is mine — I have successfully binge-watched every episode of MASTERS OF HORROR in two weeks’ time.
