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.
As celebrators of earnest awfulness at the Sobadcast, there’s something about listening to an enthusiastic caller sharing their experience sharing a couple of tall ones with a mullet-sporting sasquatch on some backwoods Washington State logging trail that just sits right with us. All the better that you couldn’t tell who was nuttier, the callers or the hosts.
As an homage to those paranormal radio shows like Coast to Coast AM hosted by Art Bell, George Noory and the like, we present you some archival footage of the little-known Full Moon Radio show with host Pat Moon (and guest host Philipander Poon). Sponsored by Aqua Velva.
Have you ever wondered how certain movies just never appeared on your radar, despite having seen most other entries in the genre? So did we when we recently stumbled upon the 1981 slasher flick Final Exam. Then we watched the movie.
On this episode we study out the misguided homages to better films, the extra long scenes that don’t lead anywhere or further the plot and of course the random wedgie tug that may have been a character choice but probably wasn’t.
Stick around at the end where we shamelessly namedrop the Skip to the End podcast and hand out some grades of our own for some of the latest releases.
What beats a paradox? A full house. Actually, hell if we know, but that doesn’t stop us from talking about Netflix and J.J. Abrams’ Super Bowl surprise – another entry in the Cloverfield series. By now even your pet guinea pig, Colonel Squeaker has weighed in on this one, but we’ve decided to take a crack, too. Hey, we never said we were timely.
The golden age of 80s slasher cinema produced some interesting, if not great movies. In this episode, we buy a ticket for Terror Train, a 1980 Canadian-American production that slipped through the cracks of our adolescent viewing. Jamie Lee Curtis, Ellis from Die Hard and David Copperfield playing against type as a – wait for it – magician! It can’t be all bad can it?
