Skullduggery – Scare Daniel Podcast Episode 99
“Wanna watch me suck a Greyhound bus through a straw?”
Trottelville Junior College talent show rejects Daniel Barnes and Corky McDonnell invoke the Spirit of Evil to review Skullduggery. Pointless beyond comprehension, Skullduggery concerns a malicious game within a game within a muddy and witless non-horror movie. It’s just a series of nonsensical things happening in the most uncompelling manner possible.
Elsewhere, Daniel and Corky discuss sacred tigers, blood puzzles, Dial-a-Guffaw phone lines and Toronto Argonauts draft picks.

Mark’s dare: “I remember watching this film on Beta as a kid. I was interested because it involved a D&D type game and it was supposed to be horror. It is from that genre of “D&D will take you to hell” movies. I need to share this pain with someone.”
IMDB synopsis: “Five anxious players gather for a medieval board game where merciless warlocks battle for ultimate occult power. But something is playing — and it’s no longer just a game.
