The Zone


10/24/2013 1:56 PM

  Thursday in The Zone we got into the Halloween spirit by talking about our favorite scary movies. A caller brought up the movie Alien and the famous “Chestburster” scene.

This was also the first movie Justin saw that was rated “R” but he let us know his Dad wouldn’t let him watch that particular scene. This paved the way for Zone listeners who called in with their favorite scary movies and also the first “R” rated movie they saw. We had some good one’s and a couple folks brought up some older movies like The Wolf Man, Creature from the Black Lagoon and The House on Haunted Hill.

 Continuing with our scary movie talk we count down a list of horror movies inspired by true events. Some of the movies that claim to be based on true events are Jaws, The Exorcist and The Amityville Horror.

 From we talk to blogger Edward Aschoff. This is also our Jim’s Razorback Pizza segment but we cut that talk short and find out about the rest of the SEC. We also use this opportunity to ask Edward about his favorite scary movies. Turns out that his favorite genre of movie is horror and he’s a bit of an expert in the scary movie department as well as college football.

 We do manage to talk sports today and in this segment we talk bowl projections.

   Our buddy Chris “Sugar” Kane from KATV was in with us today. He brought a list of college graduation success rates and in this segment we discuss.

 In our final segment from the show we bring back “What the Hell?”. In today’s edition we find out a new way to deal with baldness.

 Coming up Friday we will be joined by Wally Hall and have our Blind Pig picks. We will also talk football with the Pigskin Preacher, talk to Robbie Neiswanger from the Arkansas News Bureau, we will have the Matty T. minute and the Zone Rewind. We thank you for listening to The Zone weekdays from 10 to 1 with Justin Acri!
