It's pop culture week at Under the Radar! "IT," "Happy Death Day" and the latest "Saw" movie are just a few of the horror movies you can catch on the silver screen right now. What's with our country's current love affair with horror films? We take a deep-dive into this creepy genre that's raking in the big bucks. We also discuss cringe-worthy Halloween costumes, trans models making waves, movie remakes with all-female casts and the end of "Fashion Police."
