  • Continuing on our Schlocktober frolic through the underrated horror of the 1990s, Cargill and I accidentally traipse across a forgotten cemetery in the middle of nowhere and arouse Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight from its ancient slumber. Our fear subsides in seconds as we instantly recall the fact that...
