1.40 | Gone Home, Caroline Mitchell, & Jump Scares

We’re baaaaaaaaaack!

That’s right, Lee and Eddie have returned from the unexpected hiatus last week and are kicking up a storm with Lee’s final thoughts on Caroline Mitchell’s The Silent Twin, Eddie’s absolute love of Gone Home, and a game that Lee accidentally said was named The Brookhaven Experiment but is actually named Outlast. Check it out!

We also discuss jump scares! Are they good or bad? Eddie thinks they’re cheap, but Lee says, why pay more?

BOO!

Alright, I guess they don’t work in text!


BOO!!

1.39 | The Conjuring 2, Ludlum, and IT

What makes horror scary? What makes mystery mysterious? What makes clowns so terrifying?

It’s clowns. Clowns make clowns terrifying.

Lee and Eddie search for the answers to these compelling questions as well as trying to figure out how long you need to give a book before you finally admit defeat? Eddie wants to know if 15 years is too long.

1.5 | YA & Children’s Crime Special

This week is our kids’ crime special! Lee talks YA with Patterson and Paetro’s Confessions of a Murder Suspect, Eddie takes a stroll down memory lane (think Enid Blyton, and 90’s tween mysteries), and we see the return of Two-Minute Mysteries!

We were hoping this week’s Guess Along would be child’s play, but it would seem R. L. Stine has us stumped! Tell us how you think this terrible tale will end! Read along as we try to untangle the mystery of It Came from Beneath the Sink! (It’s definitely a cursed sponge, but beyond that we’re absolutely washed up!)
