Tonight Eric takes a good look at the strange goings on at Bohemian Grove. There is no question that the Bohemian Club and it's summer camp is a real thing...but what is it exactly? If you ask the club its self, they would probably tell you it is a private club for distinguished gentlemen who like to blow off a little steep for two weeks in July away from the eyes of the press. But, if you ask conspiracy theorist like Alex Jones, he would be more likely to tell you the Bohemian Grove is a place where rich republicans world leaders meet to plot to control the world and practice strange occult rituals possibly including human sacrifice!
So which is true? Well, several people, including Mr. jones, have successfully infiltrated the camps at Bohemian Grove and tonight we'll dig through a few of them to try and separate fact from fiction. We'll also take a look at the infamous Cremation of Care ceremony that Jones caught on film and try to determine if its footage of an actual human sacrifice or more like a poorly produced Disneyland stage show.
We'll also discuss rumors of wild orgies, non-stop drinking, secret meetings, and the music Bohemian's listen to. We'll also discuss who makes up the membership of the bohemian club and how much membership costs, what two former presidents had to say about it, if Alex Jones qualifies as a garbage person, and Eric will give some suggestions on how The Bohemian Club could improve the festivities through better production!
Eric wonders if he'd qualify as "a man of talent"?
Eric Dwinnells welcomes back Fatima Elmi to discuss a cult classic film that she'd only recently seen for the first time, 1984's Children of the Corn. This movie was based on a short story by Stephen King and tonight we'll discuss the difference between the two but mostly we'll be focused on the movie. Naturally, Eric and Fatima will walk you trough the plot adding their own observations and answer these boring questions:
Can close-ups of hands holding farming equipment CAN be scary?
What makes Issac (played by John Franklin) so unusual looking?
Why was Eric unimpressed with Linda Hamilton's dance moves?
How does Malachi manage such a busy day?
Speaking of Malachi, how did Courtney Gains not win an Oscar for his amazing performance in this film? And also...what's up with his teeth?
Why is Burt such a jerk?
Which member of the cast appeared in Monster Squad and which one appeared in both Full House and Fuller House?
All this and more will be answered on this episode of Spooky A S!

Tonight host Eric Dwinnells reports on his Halloween season including visits to Spooky World, Salem, Lyndhurst castle, The Chiller Theatre convention and the real Sleepy Hollow!
More importantly, Eric, The Witchfinder General of Salem, MA will read for you a book written by the all-too-real Matthew Hopkins, the historic Witchfinder General of England! In 1647, Matthew Hopkins wrote a book of sorts to answer some accusations that his witch examinations were nothing but torture sessions designed to fleece the towns he visited out of their money. Eric has updated the text to make it more palatable to modern ears, but don't worry. You'll still get a good feel for just how evil this so-clled Witchfinder was!
