Micklos and Jay Sapiro, introduces a babysitter encountering a ghost haunter her young charge. Rounding out the show is the Shudder exclusive Still/Born from director Brandon Christensen featuring a harrowing look at the loss of a child and the mental impact of such an event...and maybe some demon possession to spice things up a bit! The hunt is on for the diamond in the rough. Doc Rotten from Horror News Radio and Jeff Mohr from Decades of Horror: The Classic Era are joined by Rafe Telsch and Vanessa Thompson.
