Fantasmo Episode 58: Haunted Houses Volume 2

One of our most popular episodes ever was the one in which we highlighted the haunted house subgenre. Those of you who made it out to that one may recall we had a very cool opening presentation by the Center for Paranormal Research and Investigation, followed by The Amityville Horror and Burnt Offerings. Those are two great films to be sure, but we held off showing THE BEST HAUNTED HOUSE MOVIES EVER MADE with the knowledge that we would eventually hold a sequel to that spooky evening. This time out we will be screening Robert Wise's classic The Haunting (no Liam Neeson CGI fests here), as well as The Legend of Hell House ("the Mount Everest of haunted houses") starring Roddy McDowall. Personally I think Hell House is one of the creepiest movies I've ever seen, and it's written by the great Richard Matheson (I Am Legend). We're talking some great stuff! As for an opening presentation we're working on something special, so stay tuned to the blog for updates. Without any further ado here are your full Episode 58 details:

Oh man! That would be worth the six hour drive from Chuck-town if only my poor beat up clunker could make it!
