Why We Love Horror, Marilyn Monroe’s Vacant Neighbor & Fried Twinkies

Episode 32

Chris Alexander, Editor-in-Chief of Fangoria magazine explains why people love to be grossed out and scared by horror! Are these movie-goers some kind of sickos, are they curious about blood and guts, or do they just like getting grossed out and scared?

Intern Eric tells us why the burial crypt above Marilyn Monroe remains empty and will probably remain so.

We learn from AOL’s David Moye how Chicken Charlie has made a living deep frying Oreos and Twinkies on the state fair route and Ripley archivist Edward Meyer tells the story of Ripley’s most horrifying exhibit – The Iron Maiden. A terrifying yet real artifact from the dark days of Europe.
