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.
Just when you thought it was safe to back into the Ghosthouse…
Our 132-hour expose of this 1988 Italian horror movie continues with Part 2, where Jon, Pete and guest Bernie Gonzalez dial it up a few notches to discuss Willy Moon, world’s creepiest happy-go-lucky hitchhiker, among other details.
Since friend, artist and all-around great guy Bernie Gonzalez told us to watch the bizarro 1988 horror flick Ghosthouse (it has been give then RiffTrax treatment) it’s only fitting we have him on to explain himself. We also get a comprehensive summary of Italian giallo cinema, of which Ghosthouse is a part. When the Italian director uses the nom de plume Humphrey Humbert in the credits, you know something messed up is happening.
Add a little ghost girl, a not really creepy clown doll and some Troll 2-level acting and you have this beautiful disaster. Plus America’s favorite happy-go-lucky hitchhiker, Willy Moon. Ciao!
Somewhere along the journey of growing up in the 80s, Friday the 13th moves went from making us scream with terror to scream with laughter. On this episode of So Bad It’s… we’re joined by fellow Friday aficionado Graham LaMontagne as we track our memories, thoughts and insights and discuss the series and all things Jason Voorhees.
In keeping with the series’ myriad of sequels, this is the first of a two-part episode. So grab your hockey mask or burlap sack and meet us up at Camp Crystal Lake with Dudley, Corey Feldman, Crispin Glover, Alice, Kris and the rest of the gang.
