Cromtober 2019 - Frightening Childhood Films with Wine & Witches!





At last, Wine & Witches is back! Ashleigh, Kara, and Liz have returned to discuss frightening films that left a mark upon their childhood! Up first, Ashleigh presents why Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971) is actually a horrific movie. Then, Kara discusses The Brave Little Toaster, an animated film from 1987 and the frightful scenes contained within. Finally, Liz takes the show back to The Emerald City for the 1985 sequel Return to Oz.

Scenes of TERROR:

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
The Brave Little Toaster

Join us, won't you?
