I listen to audiobooks while driving and doing chores. My current listen is The Cthulhu Casebooks of Sherlock Holmes- Shadwell Shadows. It’s part of a three volume set of the early cases of Sherlock Holmes written by John Watson. Did you know they met fighting the Old Ones and that Watson’s war injury was actually from a lizard man? I bet you didn’t.
@sammydog01 I don’t do audiobooks but I sure as heck read books so I just bought the first book in the series. There’s another fourth book by somebody else that looks to be on a similar theme but does not seem to have very good ratings so I don’t know if I’ll look at that one or not. Do you like the scary Solstice music around yule?
@Cerridwyn I have another set of three by a different author. I guess Lovecraft and Conan Doyle were contemporaries so it’s a thing? I am not familiar with scary solstice music- do you have a recommendation?

@yakkoTDI So that’s where Fink Finley went, that slippery bastard! He owes me money…
But, seriously, one movie on their list that I’ve seen, but probably isn’t as well-known as most of them, is “Freaky.” It was pretty entertaining, a Vince Vaughn tour de force, and his co-star, Kathryn Newton, did a great job, too, switching personalities with his character, a serial killer.
I’m looking for something to listen to while I do chores or whatnot. I’ve never listened to a podcast before (love book on tapes) what I loved was the haunting of hill house and the haunting of bly manor (I’m watch the next few this month) also just watched “the popes exorcist and that gave me the creep
