"What if we're not lucky?"

While 2020 has delivered its fair share of crappy times, Director, Rob Savage found a great opportunity, a 56 minute long horror movie, filmed over Zoom... Host (2020) is a beacon of innovation and terror that we needed to survive this bleak excuse for a year.

"Ok, I'm drawing a line in the fucking sand. Do NOT read the Latin!" This is the horror fan's horror movie, because it's a love letter to and a critique of the genre. Does that make it good though?

I mean horror.Damien is joined by the always insightful Dave to talk all about The Cabin in the Woods (2011).
