Author John Langan (Children of the Fang) joins us in the Abyss to discuss Ramsey Campbell's enigmatic 1976 short story, "The Companion." Before we dive into our in-depth, spoiler-filled discussion about "The Companion" and its hidden meanings, we also talk about The Haunting of Bly Manor, The Science of Stephen King by Meg Hafdahl and Kelly Florence, and the Shudder Exclusive movies, Scare Me and Host. (Recorded Oct. 18, 2020)
