Arthouse of Horror continues as Eric, Kent & Lobster head to dreary Maine to meet up with reknowned author Stephen King and one of his most fascinating characters, a school teacher who recieves a unique gift after coming out of a five-year coma. In the hands of director David Cronenberg and played by the iconic Christopher Walken, The Dead Zone would be a landmark film for all three artists. But does this film transcend it's minimalistic trappings or does the ice break underneath it's heavyweight pedigree?

By 2008, vampires rule pop culture from literature to film. Adapting a popular Swedish novel, director Tomas Alfredson created a new entry in the lexicon, a story of a bullied young boy who befriends a young-looking vampire, forming a bond that will change his life forever. But does this film deserve the praise and attention it recieved or should it have caught some sun? Eric, Kent & Lobster, under the Arthouse of Horror banner, gear up to find out.

In 1968, Roman Polanski was invited to America to make his first major motion picture. What he chose was a psychological horror film about a young woman whose body may or may not be holding the Antichrist. It would kick off Hollywood's obsession with the occult that would make up most of the horror films of the next decade and would still have a grip on audiences today. 

For the second offering of October's Arthouse of Horror, Eric, Kent & Lobster grab a swanky flat with a great address and join in on the midnight chanting as they discuss Rosemary's Baby.

In 1979, one movie made everyone scream. Director Ridley Scott took a minimal cast, some state of the art set designs and 2 legendary artists to create a sci-fi/horror hybrid that changed all the rules. The tragic story of a space barge crew that is put in harm's way while scouting a distress call solidified many careers, including a relative newcomer Sigourney Weaver in a role that would become her legacy. But does it deserve it's status as one of the scariest movies ever made, or should it get a face hug? Eric, Kent & Lobster investigate.
