On October 31st 2023. A Podcast broadcasting out of Canada broadcasted its Halloween episode. Two Podcasters died that night, the hosts of the show. Their surviving family members agreed to let the episode air. That way you could all hear Wes and Lydia discuss the 2016 found footage film; Hell House LLC

A Haunt built from the remains of the Abbadon Hotel in upstate New York was set to open on Oct 8th. Instead of thrills and chills everyone got more than they bargained for, which resulted in fifteen people being killed. The circumstances have never been revealed on what really happened that night. Until now.

A fan favorite, but relatively unknown to the general public. A film which spawned a franchise that has opened up the strange and Hellish world of the Abbadon Hotel. The latest film Hell House Origins: The Carmichael Manor is now streaming on Shudder!

A bit of luck and a lot of desperation lead them to meet up with a local Zoologist that brings them to an old farmhouse buried deep in the woods for them to make a stand.

ayako is back and this time she’s bringing Sarah Michelle Geller with her! On Episode 202 of Dead Air we wrap up our multi-episode J-horror extravaganza discussing the two pillars of the J-horror invasion and their American remakes! Today we finish off with the 2004 remake of The Grudge.

Karen Davis is an industrious exchange student that definitely has a boyfriend who is relevant and everything to the plot living in Japan, when the sudden loss of a care-worker to the Williams family occurs and she hastily takes on the assignment to accommodate the English speaking household. Once she crosses into that home it’s clear that nothing is right. The family is gone save for an elderly woman who soon dies while being menaced by an evil presence. It becomes clear that all who cross that doorway are doomed. Can Karen discover the truth of the terrible curse that envelops this property and save herself or is she simply doomed like everyone else?

A groundbreaking haunting story by writer/director Takashi Shimizu. The grudge would solidify the early 2000’s as the decade of remakes from overseas that meant big scares for Western audiences as well as big profits for studios.
