We start with a tribute to the late Gunnar Hansen, the actor who first played Leatherface and a cultural look at the paradigm shift with 1970s horror films. We then take a look at the comic book releases for 11/4/2015 and talk about our first "Picks of the Week" for DC, Marvel, Image and the indies.

For our 10th episode we step away from our usual topics to look at Michael Mann's third film, the original adaptation of Thomas Harris's Red Dragon novel. We primarily focus on the visual symbolism and the subtexts of masculinity and dualism.
