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.

Welcome to Poveglia, the most haunted island on Earth! Author J.H. Moncrieff has been there and on this episode of Monster Men, she tells us her stories.
Just off Venice in Italy, Poveglia is known as one of the world’s most haunted places.
Poveglia has a terrifying, plague-infected history complete with a creepy mental hospital, a deranged doctor, the buried remains of hundreds of people and maybe a ghost or two. The island is a legendary haunted location and off limits to the public, but that did not stop our courageous guest. Not only did she make it to the island, but she explored it alone. (Just her and the ghosts.) You will love her stories.
She also shares a few other fascinating stories of her paranormal experiences, which just might have you leaving a light on tonight.
J.H. Moncrieff is a delightful person and an amazing author. You won’t want to miss her books; City of Ghosts, The Girl Who Talks to Ghosts and The Bear Who Wouldn’t Leave.
