Official Show Notes[]

"Every Shocktober must come, sadly, to an end, but not without our longest (and best?) episode of the month. Dan Macabre, Booart Skellington, and Elliott Killin' are joined by Hellie Haglund to discuss Ouija, the movie that captures the thrill of moving a piece of wood across a board. Meanwhile Stuart discovers the double-meaning to House II, Dan expands his masterful celebrity impression repertoire, which turns the tables on interrupting Elliott, and Hallie insists that Ingmar Bergman was a breast man."

Movie Summary[]


A group of friends must confront their most terrifying fears when they awaken the dark powers of an ancient spirit board.


Following the sudden death of her best friend, Debbie, Laine finds an antique Ouija board in Debbie's room and tries to use it to say goodbye. Instead, she makes contact with a spirit that calls itself DZ. As strange events begin to occur, Laine enlists others to help her determine DZ's identity and what it wants. As the friends delve deeper, they find that Debbie's mysterious death was not unique, and that they will suffer the same fate unless they learn how to close the portal they've opened.

Movie Pitches[]


Elliott: According to Wikipedia, they reshot like half the movie.
Stuart: Oh, man.
Elliott: But they—
Stuart: Must have left all that gold on the cutting room floor.
Elliott: Yep!
Hallie: I'm dying for the unedited version released.
Elliott: Apparently, none of the...
Stuart: Where they morph, where they morph the two versions of the movie together.
Dan: They should have a second version, they should have it like that—
Elliott: Like Anchorman?
Dan: Yeah, I was just gonna say: the Anchorman, shitty Anchorman movie that they put out, with all the extra footage. [Wake Up, Ron Burgundy: The Lost Movie]
Elliott: Wow.
Hallie: Meow! Sorry!
Elliott: Was the title The Shitty Anchorman Movie?
Dan: It was not meant to be seen by anyone, that's why they cut all that stuff.
Hallie: I hope none of the Anchormen are listening.
Elliott: More like...
Stuart: No, I actually...I mean, I hope they are, so they can recommend this great podcast to all their friends.
Dan: I'm sorry, Paul Rudd. You're a national treasure.
Elliott: The other members of Anchorman's cast? Not sorry. You hear that, Christina Applegate?!
Stuart: David Koechner!
Elliott: And you, David Koechner?!

Dan: I want to thank, um...I got a gift for myself—I didn't get it for myself, it was given to me...
Elliott: "Dear Dan: you're my favorite. Love, Dan. I bought this off your wishlist, which is also mine."
