Geek Girl Riot is throwing a monstrous All Hallows Geeks party to celebrate the idobi Punkin’ Bash 2018! Hear Sherin, Angie, Erin, Kat, Makeeya, Philip, and Soma take on the night of the living dead.

Frightful Films to Watch This Halloween…
Angie takes us back to 1971 with her fave spooky movie Let’s Scare Jessica to Death. Then Kat tells us all about The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell on Netflix and why it’s sinfully delicious. Sherin also gives a shoutout to Hasan Minhaj and his new comedy-news show Patriot Act for scaring us straight just in time for Halloween…and the midterms.  

Disability in Horror Video Games
Erin digs into disability in horror video games and the mistakes they often make. More games need to listen to avid players like Erin, who knows what makes video games work and what makes them accessible for everyone to enjoy.

Bohemian Rhapsody Will Rock You
We take a break from the witching hour (but we’re still dressing up) to sing the praises of Bohemian Rhapsody. Sherin and Julian break free down the performances, story, and how the movie made them feel. (read our review)

Today’s Scary Halloween Politics
Now children, did you hear…the real monsters are in local government. Soma tells us some cities have banned trick or treaters over the age of 12. TWELVE! Makeeya also shares a petition to move Halloween to the last Saturday in October. Yup. Our Rioters weigh in.

The 1960s vs. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
To close us out our resident werewolf/curmudgeon Philip talks the new Netflix show Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and how it hearkens back to the occult films of the 60s and 70s. He discusses the link between what’s going on in the real world and the quality of horror’s classics.
