We covered some of the big ones like Toy Story 4/ Lego Movie Part 2 on the regular episodes, but these are a special brand of trash. Running with some big hitters like Frozen 2, and Dreamworks embarrassing output of How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (put a number on it) and Abominable. In case you haven't had enough Yeti talk we also cover the new Laika output, Missing Link. Netflix scoring big with multiple animated Oscar noms, we will be covering I Lost My Body. Sturgill Simpson made an animated Visual Album that's arguably better than every animated movie this year. It's also WES ANDERSON appreciation month so we tag Fantastic Mr. Fox on the show.

As quickly as it appeared, Spooky-tober has now ended but not without a bang. We talk brand new Zombieland like anyone was asking for it. Del Toro produced some sort of scary book adaptation, I don't know I don't read. That's ok because Rob Zombie doesn't read either he just makes exploitation flicks. Speaking of books it wouldn't be Spooky-Tober without some Stephen King - so let's dive into the George Romero film The Dark Half.
Spooky-tober bubbles on with a big bag of terrible movies. The creators of Sausage Party should have stayed away from The Addams Family.

It wouldn't be a Movie Epidemic episode with out a Universal Monster and we have Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein the first of the comedies.
Beep Beep it's a new episode, get it while it's hot. We diving into more live action Disney but actually pretty much animation with the new version of The Lion King.
