The Screen Rant editorial team is back with another episode of the Screen Rant Underground.

Join host Ben Kendrick as well as fellow SR editors Rob Keyes, Anthony Ocasio, and Kofi Outlaw as we discuss another Horror remake: Troy Nixey’s Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark.

Screen Rant Underground is available in the iTunes Music Store but if you’re not near your home computer, check out our second episode in the player below. As mentioned in the previous post, this is only our second episode – so cut us a little slack as we get this thing off the ground.

Also, Screen Rant Underground is an EXPLICIT podcast. We don’t go out of our way to say controversial things or use explicit language but it does happen – so use discretion when playing the podcast at work and around young, or sensitive, ears.

  1. My crew is doing an awesome job with these!




  2. Definitely enjoyed the first podcast. It convinced me to go see Fright Night haha! Excited to listen to #2 tomorrow at work!

  3. nice podcast, how often are these going to be posted?

    • We’ll do them weekly. We had two this week since we had to set up a few things on the back-end.

  4. I know you’ve said weekly but is there gonna be a specific day thats it gonna be out?

    • Like is there gonna be a regularly, specific day and time that these are gonna be released or am I gonna have to keep checking back every night to see it the latest one is out?

      • Good question. It will likely be every Wednesday or Thursday but we’ll have to confirm and get back to everyone.

        • Can you guys bleep “like” out every time Kofi says it?

      • Ya, we are usually going to be aiming for Wednesday posting – unless we get pushed back by a holiday or something.

        Also, we’ve submitted the podcast to iTunes – so you’ll soon be able to subscribe that way.

  5. I will try this (never listened to a podcast) but I could never understand the use of a podcast. Im not knocking it and saying get rid of it, I use it or I dont no biggie.

    However why have a podcast? Is it interactive? Or is it just like reading a review/post/rant here on the site but not able to respond to it?

    I see it will contain 3 or so people discussing things. Im assuming like the 3 people on Revision3 that do movie reviews and I think a few of them use to do WOW videos explaining stuff…

    HOLY COW almost an hour? :D Maybe I will play it in the background while doing something else. Is that the way most people do podcast?

    Anyho good luck on this venture!

  6. It might be even better to do a video podcast :) Just a thought

    • Gotta crawl before we can walk. :)


  7. Damn these are sweet i wish you guys had done this earlier!

  8. Congrats Kofi! On this second podcast you moved from the bathroom to the kitchen! Can’t wait till you move into the living room with everyone else.

    (I swear I heard water dripping in the background at one point….)

    • Kofi has officially invested in a better mic – so, instead of the kitchen or the bathroom, in episode 3 it’ll sound like he’s sitting right next to you Jeff… which, if you know Kofi, is a terrifying prospect.

    • I’m constantly broadcasting from a secret location. Next week will be from under your bed while you sleep. Stay tuned.

  9. I’m lovin these podcasts.

  10. “Jersey Shore” and “good” in one sentence. And a Reality TV show that is being called honest TV. Jesus Christ! Now I’ve heard it all…
