Tonight Eric Welcomes back Fatima Elmi as they discuss Killer Dolls! We'll take a close look at both the original Child's Play and the new reboot. We'll also touch on Annabell, The Twilight Zone and The Simpsons.

So which Child's Play is best? Is Aubrey Plaza a good movie mom? Are dolls made evil or born that way? All this plus much more killer doll history and the big reveal of the Disney ride that almost made Fatima sick with fright on tonight's Spooky A S!

It's no secret that Eric was a HUGE wrestling fan growing up. One of his favorite wrestlers is STILL going at it today and just happens to be the spookiest of them all, The Undertaker!

Early in his WWF career, Taker was "killed" by Yokozuna, but he promised his spirit would live on and that The Undertaker would return and be "reborn". Fans waited, but for months there was no sign Taker. The Million Dollar Man, Ted Debiase, said, using his millions, he could buy The Undertaker and fans were shocked when he showed up with "the dead man". 

But The Undertaker's manager, Paul Bearer, cried foul and said Debiase's Undertaker was nothing but an UnderFAKEr!

And so the match was set: at SummerSlam 1994, The Undertaker would battle...The Undertaker?!?!

This controversial match has been the subject of debate for the past 25 years, and many fans agree it my be the worst storyline Taker was ever involved in...but are they right?

Tonight, Eric and his guest Tyler Clapp re-examine this classic tale and break kayfabe to tell you what was going on behind the scenes of Undertaker vs Underfaker!

Tonight, 25 years after the crime took place, Eric welcomes back true-blue Spookaroo Susan Barrett to give a book report on if I DID IT: Confessions of the Killer by O.J. Simpson

 

This book was written by a ghostwriter working off interviews he'd conducted with Simpson. In it, Simpson goes on at length detailing his issues with ex-wife Nicole and then goes on to, hypothetically, explain how he WOULD have killed Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman IF he'd done it. O.J. now denies he had anything to do with this book, however recently released interviews and the details contained in the book strongly suggest otherwise.

Long before Tales from the Crypt, The Twilight Zone or even Inner Sanctum, horror had a home on television. Tonight Eric goes old school to discuss Lights Out; television's original horror anthology series.

But Lights Out didn't start with television. In fact, TV is basically the end of the story! Long before television, Lights Out was a hugely popular radio show making it's debut in 1934. It was not the first horror-themed radio program, but it was the nastiest. This was thanks in large part to the show's creator/head writer, Wyllis Cooper who had a taste fore gore and a twisted sense of humor. When he left the show, an up and coming young writer named Arch Oboler took over and brought the show to even greater heights.

This is what Spookaroos of the 30's and 40's had as their doorway to horror. One particular episode was so memorable that it left lasting impressions on bth disgraced comedian Bill Cosby and novelist Stephen King...beware The Chicken Heart!
