SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK
It's the beginning of a horror marathon this week on Media Ghouls as we take a look at the long unexpected film adaptation of Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark! While Justin has read and reread these stories in his middle age, Ian knows them mainly by reputation and their iconic illustrations, but nothing could prepare the Ghouls for the unexpected way these stories were framed. Get ready for Goosebumps and Ring references. Ian cites the other kids' horror icons of the 1990s. Justin laments the shame of oversharing movie trailers.

A GOOFY MOVIE
The most underrated Disney film of the 90s gets the spotlight this month on Media Ghouls. That's right folks, it's finally time for A Goofy Movie! It's easy to forget that this one is just as much a musical as the rest of the Disney Renaissance films, but Powerline should never be forgotten! Conceived as a postscript to the awesome Goof Troop animated series, this movie is both hilarious and heartwarming. Themes of fatherhood and the lack of a villain character make this one of the most unique Disney films of all time!

ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD
The Ghouls pull out the critical lens this episode to explore Quentin Tarantino's ONCE UPON A TIME IN...HOLLYWOOD. Justin has been lukewarm on the second half of the director's filmography, but will this 1969 period piece change his mind? The evolution of editing in Tarantino's films is analyzed...along with his emphasis on actors' feet. Morality, inadequacy, and more are discussed in this rabbit hole of a film.
