Nick pays tribute to film critic, scholar, activist and writer Sergio Mims, a dear friend and colleague who recently passed away. Then actor David Dastmalchian (star of Dune, The Flash, The Suicide Squad, Twin Peaks and more) talks about his love of horror and how it began (Oliver Reed in The Curse of the Werewolf!), the latest comic book adventures of his character “Count Crowley,” the making of Dune, his time spent in Chicago, and much more. Then Esmeralda Leon and Nick begin the yearly Spooktacular by talking about Esma’s favorite zombie movies, getting a visit from the one and only Count Fartula, and learning about the term “spoopy,” which all the kids are using to describe things during Halloween time.
