The first episode of every season is devoted to a Canadian horror film.

Creator Ryan Stockstad has stated that the goal of the show is to discuss "off the beaten path" horror movies that have been released on DVD or Blu-ray and are therefore available to the general public. The major exception to these rules concerns the final episode of each season, which he reserves for a big, popular, mainstream horror hit.

Every season devotes at least one episode to a movie featuring Boris Karloff.

Vincent Price movies were featured at least once in each of the first three seasons. Season four broke the trend.
