Hello Dear Listeners,

The week of feasts is upon us and we hope you enjoy this episode as you travel to see family, hunker down in your bunker, or enjoy basking in the glow of your retail therapy.  If you need a good read for your holiday time, This Place Scares Us suggests reading The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson.

This week's episode is in fact about The Haunting of Hill House which has seen several screen adaptations both in movie form and now as a popular Netflix series.  Laramie shares his opinions about all of the iterations of The Haunting of Hill House and why sometimes never seeing a monster is scarier than anything.

Katya and Laramie debate why the origin of a monster is so important and discuss at length the horror community's view on whether to show the monsters or not.  What do you think listeners: is it scarier to see the monsters, or to never see the monsters?  With that we leave you to your Thanksgiving.
