Dorking Out Episode 69: The Battle of the Sexes, Scares and Star Trek: Discovery Edition

Hey there, dorks. In this week’s episode, we offer a few recommendations for horror movies to watch during the scariest month of the year. We are joined by Anthony C. Ferrante, director of “Boo,” “Headless Horseman” and the “Sharknado” movies, Ryan Mitchelle, director of “Jesus, Bro!” and Peter Brown, associate editor of Assignment X.

We each picked a horror movie favorite, and most of the movies were released between 1982-1983. Only one of us picked a movie outside of those years. You’ll never guess who it was.

In our second segment, Chris and Sonia review “Battle Of The Sexes,” starring Emma Stone and Steve Carell.

And finally, Chris and our “Star Trek” experts Jeff Bond and Alexandra August talk about Sunday night’s episode of “Star Trek: Discovery” titled “Choose Your Pain.”
