Ep 55 ‘The Thing’ / ‘The Void’

In this episode Darren and Damien discuss two sci fi horror films: The Thing and The Void. They have similarities and differences. Both have a horror element. Which one is a better film? If you have an opinion we entreat you to leave a comment. Those are the lifeblood of what we do 🙂 We would love to start a dialog with you on these films.
