It’s the second annual Scottscope Halloween special!  First, we begin our weekly coverage of The Walking Dead Season 4!  We’ll be starting things off with a general discussion about the show, followed by a recap of events thus far!  Just what is It about this show that keeps millions of viewers coming back week after week?  Why are zombies currently all the rage?  Is it the single goriest and most violent show in history?  How does it compare to the comic book?  Is it at all faithful to the source material?  Is it truly as dull and repetitive as its critics claim?  How has such an exceedingly gory and downbeat show caught on with the mainstream?

We’ll also be discussing the scariest films of all time!  Does The Exorcist still have the same impact now as it did 40 years ago?  Have audiences become exceedingly jaded?  Are they an impatient and restless bunch that views everything through thick glasses of irony?  Have today’s filmmaker’s become better at shocking audiences than scaring them?  Are filmmakers like Eli Roth nothing more than goremongers and mean-spirited provocateurs?  Did Halloween begat a trend that single handedly ruined horror films?  Have movies like Paranormal Activity and The Conjuring brought the genre back to its roots?
