October: The Most Horror-Able Month
October, the most horror-able month, is (nearly) upon us. And here's your chance to promote what you think is the most worthy horror you've ever witnessed. The premise is simple: sign up for a date using the form below, do a quick write-up of the horror you choose to promote, and see it broadcast on deadoakspodcast.com during the month of October.
The horror you promote is up to you, meaning whatever you think is worthy--as long as you can explain why--is perfectly acceptable. If you choose to promote something you've created, be sure to include links, images, videos, and anything else to spread the word!
You may choose more than one date, but please be considerate of others signing up, and try not to pick dates that fall in the same week.
Once you've got what you'd like to promote put together, send the information in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Happy October, and thanks for participating in the most horror-able month of the year!

blank on what it actually is that the snakelet wants. You found
its mother coiled around a branch protruding from a fallen tree in the lake the
previous evening. You had your bow with you, so you shot it. Right in the
belly. Sure, you could have shot it the head, but you were in a torturous mood. Naturally,
the snake was pissed at first. It tried striking you several times, but the
arrow went all the way through, leaving it with a debilitating pain. When you
ripped the arrow out, the underside of the rep…
Happy Halloween(ish), podcast fans! With Dead Oaks: A Horror Anthology Podcast wrapping up its first season a couple of weeks ago, the plan is to fill the gap between season one and two (now to January) with some awesome, spooky content. First up is a definitive ranking of every film in one of the most well known horror movie franchises in existence, A Nightmare on Elm Street.
For the past few weeks, I've been watching (and live-tweeting) all of the nine Elm Street movies, trying to separate the best of the best from the cringe-worthy--but not in a good way--entries in the series. Keep scrolling for Dead Oaks's ranking, starting with the worst...
9 & 8. The Dream Child (1989) and Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare (1991)
It makes sense that two newest films in the original Elm Street cannon (New Nightmare doesn't really count, and we'll get to that later...) are the two worst. By the time The Dream Child and Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare rolled around, …
