This week, it's all about cabins...and more cabins...maybe. The grue-crew travel to meet up with a groovy Santo to battle Krampus while they also head to a remote cabin on a lake where death follows. The first film this week is SLAY BELLES from director Spooky Dan Walker. The second film is THE CABIN from director Johan Bodell featuring a grumpy couple outracing an even grumpier killer. Doc Rotten and Vanessa Thompson from Horror News Radio along with Jeff Mohr from Decades of Horror: The Classic Era share their thoughts about this week's awesome collection of streaming horror films.

The Cabin - Slay Belles
It's Christmas Eve, and three cosplaying women come across the malevolent Christmas demon Krampus. The girls must team up with Santa Claus himself to battle the creature and save the world.
"The Adventure Girls really represented these strong badass characters … they’re afraid but they’re also fearless and that’s fun to watch. Especially when they’re kooky and crazy and just so over the top." - Vanessa
"The Krampus had some interesting explicit body parts." - Jeff
"Having Barry Bostwick as Santa was inspired! … See Slay Belles for a delightful performance from Barry Bostwick. … When he was on, I was very happy." - Doc

When a couple visits a remote cabin and cross paths with a compulsive liar, their vacation takes a dramatic turn for the worse.
"The dialogue was not very believable to me. I didn’t care about the characters. I wasn’t engaged in their story and their journey." - Vanessa
"I thought there was a lot of good suspense and tension and I had some breath-holding going on in certain parts. I enjoyed the last two-thirds of it." - Jeff
"There’s a lot of rowing across that lake!" - Doc
