The Zane is back! It's a Halloween party as hosts Allen Christian, Steven Granger, and Gerald James are joined by the returning Lacey Day and the oft-mentioned, previously presumed dead John Hall. For our very special Halloween episode, we delve into the first Tales From The Crypt film Demon Knight. Billy Zane charms the pants off of us as a demon known as "The Collector", alongside William Sadler as the Demon Knight, Brayker. A young Jada Pinkett is kinda cool, Thomas Haden Church looks like Chad Kroeger and is a huge scumbag. Dick Miller is some guy that everyone has seen before but no one knows.

Halloween memories are shared, Lacey Day reads too much into the movie, Allen has some serious issues with both Joss Whedon and David E. Kelley, Gerald loves them Saw movies, and we think we've had about enough of these movie things and they should stop making them.

Allen, Steven, and Gerald tackle Guillermo del Toro's first foray into the comic book genre, 2002's Blade II. The film is better than the first, and probably the best of its breed, without transcending its genre. Wesley Snipes and Ron Perlman are cool and deserve their own movie together, Norman Reedus is overrated, and Kris Kristofferson is still an American treasure. More Halloween discussion, and Allen can't hold back his hatred for Kevin Nash.

Hosts Allen Christian, Steven Granger, and Gerald James dig into 2001's From Hell this week, starring Johnny Depp, Heather Graham, Ian Holm, and Robbie Coltrane. Directed by The Hughes Brothers, famed for their directorial efforts of Menace II Society and Dead Presidents. This unlikely follow up, loosely based off the graphic novel by Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell, chronicles a fictitious account of the mystery of Jack the Ripper in Victorian England. It's kind of a snoozer, but is fairly entertaining. The boys once again forego the commentary style and engage in a freeform discussion about the film and the Halloween season.

Also in this episode, the guys encourage the women of the world to step up and even out the gender disparity in the serial killer game, discuss the Mark Wahlberg vehicle Rock Star, the horrors of VH1 Classic, and Steven has odd beliefs about how to memorialize victims of serial killers.

The boys try a new format, shortening this episode to a single hour segment. Allen, Steven, and Gerald watch 2001's Ghost World, and find nothing spooky about it. A coming of age tale about two teenage girls fresh out of high school, the film manages to be depressing and no one at the table had any fun. Characters are broken down and tangents are indulged. October is kicked off with some Halloween memories, Allen's visit to a real-life haunted house was a bust in the spook department, the boys rate everything they can think of, Allen turned down meth the one time it was offered to him, Steven and Allen wonder if their hate for these characters stem from how shitty they were straight out of high school, and the biblical penalties for suicide are reviewed.
