There’s no law saying Halloween can’t be extended beyond October 31, so we’re keeping the spirit alive with an added episode which asks the question, “Why did Pete make Jon watch Halloween III?” The answer is simple: so we could do a podcast episode on it!
Halloween III gets a lot of grief because it doesn’t feature Michael Myers as the antagonist and is an outlier in the series. It’s also gained a cult status over the years as the oddity in what became an increasingly odd series. But does that mean it’s any good?
It does have America’s Treasure Tom Atkins going for it, so…
Michael Myers is back and Jamie Lee Curtis isn’t putting up with his shit in a direct sequel to John Carpenter’s classic, ‘Halloween’… also called ‘Halloween.’ Does this slasher still cut like a knife, or are we looking at death by a thousand AARP card cuts?
We’ll go in depth on this latest installment, directed by David Gordon Green and co-written by Danny McBride and featuring an A-list cast that includes Curtis, Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Will Patton and a return cameo from the original The Shape, The Nick Castle . We also tease a discussion on the Michael Myers-less “Halloween III” which we end up saving for another episode because after a two month hiatus, we talk for a really long time.
Grab your Shatner masks and listen in on our discussion. Let us know what you thought of the new ‘Halloween’ on Twitter.
