About the Hosts

Lifelong friends Jamie Roberts and Robert Lendrum love to talk horror movies and we bring  a unique angle to every critique. Whether it's discussing which character got the most exercise, how a dog should lead a paranormal investigation team, breaking down the rentability of a sex dungeon, or the merits of a good wingman during an exorcism, we raise questions that will have you laughing but also appreciating these great movies. 

Jamie Roberts is an educator and consultant with a background in music theory and band. Robert Lendrum is a Creative Director working in audience engagement for televised sports. Both hosts hail from Toronto, Canada but Jamie lives in nearby Hamilton while Rob lives in Laval, Quebec (for now).
