There, Joann will discover that some secrets can’t be buried and the horrific murder she is trying to solve may just be her own.

      Alas? Dude, I fucking live for Halloween. The brisk air, the colorful trees, Samhain, virgin sacrifices, all that good stuff.

      And yes, aside from People Under the Stairs, this list is complete shit.

      Do you know the difference between Universal Blu Ray releases and Scream Factory? I’ll give you a hint, one of them sucks balls…

      If anyone has a multi region Blu Ray player, I strongly recommend getting the Arrow Video release of The People Under The Stairs instead.
