It’s time for the some horror over on the Lambcast!

Traditionally the run up to Halloween is dedicated to horror films and franchise here at the LAMB, and that’s no different this year with our horror-themed Movie of the Month. This time around the original 1963 version of The Haunting is our focus, with its champion Howard Casner taking his first seat in the MOTM host chair. He’s joined by Sean, Tony, Richard and Jay to discuss haunted houses, moving statues and things that go thump in the night. Also on tap: Rants, Raves and Reviews of the Week and a fun new game!
