In this quick episode, Wayne and Laurie review the new movie Goosebumps while driving home from the theater. Overall, the movie was quite entertaining and garnered thumbs up from the hosts. Not just a kid movie, Goosebumps starring Jack Black has elements that will entertain both kids and adults whether fans of the book series or not. If you like movies like Monster Squad, you'll probably enjoy this film.
Upset about moving from the big city to a small town, young Zach Cooper (Dylan Minnette) finds a silver lining when he meets his beautiful neighbor Hannah (Odeya Rush). The teen is surprised to learn that Hannah's mysterious father is R.L. Stine (Jack Black), the famous author of the best-selling "Goosebumps" series. When Zach accidentally unleashes the monsters from the fantastic tales, it's up to Stine, his daughter and Cooper to return the beasts back to the books where they belong.

One room. One lock. One hour. The Necronomicast crew tried out The Escape Omaha in an effort to show how our superior observation skills and puzzle solving abilities can make short work of this little game. We didn't make it out in time.
In this episode, we give our reactions to our experience at The Escape Omaha. A big thanks to The Escape Omaha for inviting us out. It was a truly fun experience and we are planning to go back to record an episode of us as we try to escape another room.
For those not familiar, your group is locked in a room together. You have one hour to use the clues in the room to solve the puzzle and get the code for the door. It's harder than you think and time flies. Check out the link below to book your room.

The crew gets together to talk about Wes Craven and his horror legacy.
We also debut a new segment, "Taking Doug to School" where we make Doug watch a classic or iconic horror film that he still hasn't seen. Listen to his review of iconic films that he is just now seeing for the first time. This time Doug watches "An American Werewolf in London" and reveals what he thought of this horror favorite.
We also talk about the films from Christopher R. Mihm, who we were booth mates with at Crypticon. Mihm makes retro-style monster movies inspired by the 50's. These flicks are complete with all sorts of awesome retro effects, monsters, aliens, and more.
