On this week’s episode of “The Spookiest Disneyland and most spine-tingling Star Wars podcast,” Aaron and Scott discuss the 1980 1981 Disney film that terrified a generation of kids, The Watcher in the Woods. How does the Disney company attempt to capture a teen demographic after decades of making sweet and happy films? Why by giving them 84 minutes of nightmare fuel, of course! The guys discuss their memories of the film growing up, and their anxiety in revisiting it 40 years later. All this, plus the continuing drama that is the reopening of Disneyland… and Scott tells the recent tale of his own Legend of Sleepy Hollow-like experience. It’s a thrilling, chilling, episode you won’t want to miss!
