2002’s Dog Soldiers is a fave for Stella, a ‘like’ for Kirsty and Dan, and frankly a source of personal angst for Ian. The foursome all get together to chew the fat on it (and somehow never mention that director Neil Marshall went on to be a key force behind our perennial love, TV’s Hannibal). Elsewhere, Howard phones in for another pick from the Bag of Death.
Oh, and (sinister pause…) Happy Halloween!
