On All Hallow's Eve, we are all creatures of the night. To celebrate we set our dark powers to Halloween trivia featuring never-before-heard guest co-hosts Emily and Grady. Then, we turn our dark bidding to the famously quotable What We Do In the Shadows (New Zealand, 2014) and it's inventive American television counterpart (USA, 2019-). Also, did the demon from The Exorcist get bored when his host was alone?
