Breathing NEW life into Cagetober, it's GHOST RIDER. Thank god for this corny, bubbly, ridiculous movie. Nicholas Cage feels like his skull is on fire, and for good reason: it is!

The celebrations continue! Way back in episode one of Guide to the Unknown, we tackled one of the most fearsome figures in all of horror and mythology: the Boogeyman!
