Have movies ever forced you to face your fears?

What are you afraid of? Slashers in the woods? Bees? Spiders? Clowns? Do you willingly seek out movies or TV shows that showcase these fears, or avoid them like a Ritchie dodges Paul Bunyan? On this week's From The Outside In topic, we spin off of IT into a discussion on when movies forced us to throw away childish things and face our own innate fears head on, for better or worse. And why it is that movies can sometimes help with this trauma.

Also this week, twenty-seven years after their first encounter with the terrifying Pennywise, the Losers Club have grown up and moved away, forgetting everything that happened the first time around. When they each receive a phone call from Mike saying Pennywise is back in Derry, they all reunite to confront their fears and destroy Pennywise once and for all. After our normal show, Wayne Henderson from Castle Rock Zone (and our IT Remake This Movie RIGHT episode) joins Aaron and Amanda to drop down into the sewers and discuss the conclusion to Stephen King's magnum opus, IT: Chapter Two.

Also this week: a news roundup, Face/Off gets a reboot and we offer our favorite duos, and our spoiler-free reviews of Freaks.
