This week the Monster Men discuss Hunter Shea’s list of must see ghost movies. This top ten list is sure to cause a few arguments, but regardless, there are a lot of great movies here. Jack comments on them all and chimes in with a couple of his own as well.
The list includes, in no particular order; The Haunting, The Shining, The Innocents, Paranormal Activity, Poltergeist, Lady in White, The Entity and The Amityville Horror.
We promise you’ll walk away with a few movies you’ll want to watch and you should get a few laughs while you’re here. So enjoy the show and get ready to sleep with the light on.

Halloween is here and for the Monster Men, that’s the most wonderful time of the year. To celebrate our favorite holiday, we keep it simple.
We crack a couple of horror themed beers, Two Roads Route of All Evil, and discuss all things Halloween. This includes some food sampling of various Halloween foods, reminiscing about costumes from our past and discussing a few books that are perfect for the season.
The books are “The Beauty of Horror: A GOREgeous Coloring Book” by Alan Robert and “The Stand” by Stephen King. And be sure to listen to how you can win a copy of the Dark Dossier Halloween issue. And check them out at http://www.darkdossier.com
It’s October and that means it’s Horrortober here at Monster Men. This time we’ve created a 31 movie watchlist using the cool book “31 Days of Terror: The Game”. This book has compiled hundreds of films by category, and listed them so that you can create a list of movies to watch every day of the month, simply by rolling the dice.
Watch our entire list, just pick a few that pique your interest or better yet, buy the book and make your own list. No matter how you do it, this book is a great resource for finding new, old and different horror movies to watch.
Have fun and don’t forget to tell us about the movies you watch all month. Post your flicks on Twitter and tag it with #Horrortober. You can tag us too if you’d like at @backinjack and @huntershea1
On this episode of Monster Men we discuss the first family of paranormal investigation, Connecticut’s own Ed and Lorraine Warren. The couple that is at the center of The Conjuring cinematic universe, including the Annabelle movies.
Before they were a sensation on the silver stream, these two were blazing a trail as ghost hunters, before ghost hunting was even a thing. We’ve actually attended seminars hosted by the Warrens, and watch countless hours of their content on TV and online.
Join us as we tell stories about our encounters and our thoughts of their legacy in the field of paranormal investigation.
