Netflix continues the horror love as it unleashes  Veronica! This Spanish language horror film from  [rec]  director Paco Plaza is sparking the world a flame. Is it too scary to keep your browser up? Well, Doc Rotten, Thomas Mariani, Dave Dreher, Vanessa Thompson and special guest from  Decades of Horror: The Classic Era  Jeff Mohr are here to argue this. Do the scares transcend the language barrier or do they get lost in translation? Tune in to find out! Along the way, Dave returns to Horror News of the Week with a bevy of film news. Rob Zombie resurrects the Firefly Clan for  3 From Hell? Shout Factory buys the rights to Roger Corman’s filmography? The director of  The Void  is making… a new  Leprechaun  movie?!
