Gobbledygeek episode 160, “Twelve, More or Less,” is available for listening or download right here, and on iTunes here.

The penultimate week of Gobbledyween has arrived, and while that is indeed cause for national (nay, international) mourning, don’t worry: to make the most of it, Paul and AJ have two movies for you this week. Well, okay, they’re really kind of the same movie, but don’t look a gift vampire in the fangs or whatever. This week, the boys take a look at what they both agree is the best vampire movie ever made, the 2008 Swedish film Let the Right One In. Five years on, the film has lost none of its haunting beauty. They’ve also got some love for its 2010 American remake Let Me In, which is very similar but also with some significant differences which change the story entirely. It’s a vampiric twofer, and hey, you know what? You deserve it. Plus, months late, AJ finally caves to peer pressure and watches Orange Is the New Black.

Next: Gobbledyween comes to its thrilling conclusion with–wait for it–The Stuff. The Debatable Podcast host and friend of the show Greg Sahadachny joins and probably doesn’t know what he’s getting himself into.
