What’s He Building in There? – Nights 10-1-2020

October is here and the monster-of-the-week segment continues. We kick our favorite month off with an odd choice of horror movie “monster” but also the most realistic… creepy neighbors. Or is our paranoia the real monster as we let our imaginations run wild with unfounded ideas of the what the neighbors are up to? I mean, what the hell is he building in there?

Well, since this episode we are discussing horror movies there is a good chance the neighbors are up to no good. They could vampires like in Randy’s pick, the 1980’s classic Fright Night. They could all be up to no good with some kind of plot like in Melanie’s pick, the indie psychodrama that is 1BR. Or they could be Shia LaBeouf like in Jesse’s pick, Disturbia.

Also, the week’s entertainment news including the when Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness filming is to start, a Borat sequel, and Halloween viewing available now on HBO Max and Disney+. Of course, that’s not even close to all of it so enjoy!

Originally streamed live October 1st, 2020 via Facebook Live, Twitch, and YouTube.

      When Sarah lucks into a sweet one-bedroom at Asilo Del Mar Apartments in Los Angeles, she think she's hit the jackpot. It's got plenty of space, friendly tenants, group BBQs and even a cute neighbour next door. All is not what it seems: loud noises start keeping her awake at night; her cat is missing; everyone seems to be a little too helpful and friendly, except for the weirdo, Lester. Soon, Sarah learns she didn't choose this apartment — it chose her.
