Friday the 13th [1980] (SSS 36)

chi chi chi... ah ah ah...

Few sounds are more iconic in all of cinema, let alone horror than the Friday the 13th sound effect.  And a major reason for that is few franchises can compare to Friday the 13th in terms of impact, longevity, and fan adoration.

So this Friday the 13th the guys from Saw Something Scary are heading out to Camp Blood Crystal Lake and meeting up with the summer staff to find out what Summer Camp is all about.

The Strangers (SSS 35)


"You were home."

In that brief snippet of dialogue director Bryan Bertino delivered what may be the perfect dramatic encapsulation of random violence as it shows itself in the real world.

This week Derik and Jeff are watching the classic home-invasion flick, The Strangers - a film near and dear to all horror fans but particularly so one of the hosts of the Triple S show.

Press download then play and listen in on a discussion of an incredible film and the way it relates to the violence we see (and far too often experience) as a part of everyday life.

Here's where you can find the individual segments of the show:

00:01:03 - Jeff Hates Trailers
00:07:34 - The Horror Reporter
00:14:36 - Pull the Curtain: The Strangers
