Happy Holidays one and all! Dr. Zed went on vacation before wrapping the edit of our next feature, The Graduate (dropping the ball as always). So, in honor of nearing our third anniversary, we’re reposting our most popular episode to date, Andrei Tarkovsky’s Stalker.

Sometimes the most terrifying thing in the world can simply be darkness when you’re alone. Or, it could be a persistent suitor breaking in your door to profess his care and love.
