1978’s Piranha was the final film of Dark Discussions’ KILLER FISH FEST.

September’s such an interesting month, because, here in New England, it’s a fluid transition between summer and autumn.

Dark Discussions‘ topics for September were just as transitory, taking us from the final days of summer with our last Killer Fish Fest episode to the early, creepy days of fall in the woods with Blair Witch. Here’s what was on tap — click on the links to visit the episode pages and download them directly!

#248: Killer Fish Fest – Piranha 3D (2010) and Piranha (1978)


#249: Don’t Breathe (2016)

Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho

The guys have, for years, picked a “tent pole” film to feature every 50th episode. This year, they chose Psycho. Sadly, I wasn’t in on the recording because I was up at my writer’s retreat at the Kipling house.
