In this episode the guys review the pitch-perfect supernatural horror film The Mothman Prophecies with some eerie interruptions. They share their lifelong fascination with U.F.O. sightings and all things paranormal.

Then Bill Oberst Jr. drops in to talk about playing an altogether different kind of monster in Children of Sorrow, and reveals the reason he takes on such frightening roles. Keep an eye open for a stand alone episode later this week. Friends, please take a moment to like his IMDB page. His interview starts at the 37 minute mark.
