    The Movie of the Month for October 2021 is…

    It’s October! Horror month! And with it comes the horror-special Movie of the Month. We made a special exception this month as Lisa couldn’t make it to her own previously winning show, which worked out in her favour because she’s won again! Hopefully she can make it this time as she’ll be hosting the discussion on this month’s winner… Cube!

    Congratulations go once again to Lisa...

    Lambcast #601 Enter the Dragon: MOTM

    Those Kicks were Fast as Lightning and it was a little bit frightening.
