This fortnight, in an episode that just screams Delayed Halloween Special, Nick and Alastair cover Netflix’s teen horror reboot The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
But before that, they’ve also got to talk about their recent intake, such as Nick reading Kill Or Be Killed by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips from Image Comics – and since a comic is mentioned, there’s time to pay homage to the recently departed Stan Lee. Equally depressing, Alastair’s read the dystopian novel 84K by Claire North.
And then it’s down the horror mines, to find out whether Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (11:55) is a horror, a comedy or the unholy misshapen cloven-hooved bastard child of both. With various spoilers throughout, it has to be said.
Lastly, time to ask: just where is the line between camp, fun Halloweeny horror and the real grim disturbing stuff? (35:31) Does the line even exist? (Also some Sabrina spoilers here, by the way.)
