It's the closest thing you'll get to Bad Horror Movie Therapy and, as a bonus, you'll get a chance to hear the origin story of Derik's regular "Bye bye, man" sign off that is a staple of Saw Something Scary episodes.
By special request from a listener we present our episode (30) from September 2017 reviewing the ABC Mini-Series version of Stephen King's It.

This week Saw Something Scary jumps into the time machine and goes to see Peter Jackson's 1996, genre-confounding, The Frighteners. This movie broke Derik and what results is a free flowing conversation about... well... lots of stuff, including the movie in question.

Turns out the SSS Compound has some new neighbors. They like to share cocktails, tell stories, and... gather up in a circle to chant?
Seemed like a good reason to take a look at the beloved Rosemary's Baby from 1968. Neither Derek or Jeff has seen the movie prior to the watch for this episode. We know they will say they saw a classic (impossible to argue otherwise, really) but will they say they Saw Something Scary?
