I was a guest on the new episode of the BladtCast which is a really great podcast done by Christian Bladt, the producer of the Dennis Miller radio show. He is really funny and a fellow geek like us. I was so happy to be on the show for a segment to talk about horror movies. What better time than at Halloween? William Sterling was also there, who is a regular on the show but also is a big horror fan as well (plus a filmmaker whose new short ALONE you can watch below) so it was a fun discussion. I am completely grateful to have the chance to be on it and talk horror. Haven’t done this type of interview in awhile so I was a bit rusty. I hope not too many uh’s and um’s. So head on over to the website and have a listen right HERE! […]
A third of the way through my Halloween Horror Movie Challenge. So let’s get at it. Day Ten – What is a horror movie everyone hated but now likes that you liked from the beginning? HALLOWEEN III SEASON OF THE WITCH (1982) d: Tommy Lee Wallace I love that so many horror fans are enamored of ‘Halloween III Season Of The Witch’ as I am. Of course it wasn’t always that way. When I was a kid I begged my dad to take me to see as many horror films as possible. I’m surprised I got to see so many even before I was 10. One of the ones I saw was ‘Halloween III’, having also seen ‘Halloween II’ in the theatre as well, and I loved it from the start. It never bothered me that it was a non-Michael Myers (the killer from the first two films and from […]
I want to wish everyone a very Happy Halloween!
“Hey, what’s going on out here?” “Call the police! Tell the sheriff I shot him! Tell him he’s still on the loose!” “Who? Is this some sort of joke? I’ve been trick or treated to death tonight.” “You don’t know what death is.”
The initial maligned ‘Halloween III Season Of The Witch‘ has found its fans over the years who see that just because it lacked the iconic Michael Myers did not mean it was a bad film. An attempt at creating an annual horror film that takes place at Halloween could have worked had they dropped the ‘Halloween’ title and just called it ‘Season Of The Witch’. But hindsight is always 20/20 as they say. The key is the film has garnered its following and with the recently released special edition Blu-ray and DVD of it from Scream Factory it will also find a new generation of fans. Giving it an ongoing legacy for Halloweens to come. Here is the trailer: Here is the infamous jingle from the film which has, in itself, become a Halloween tradition. Warning the flashing pumpkin is constant through the whole 90 seconds.
This weekend I’ll be going to a 24 hour horror movie marathon at The Music Box Theatre here in Chicago. The line up of movies is great but one of the highlights for me is definitely seeing Lucio Fulci’s ‘The Beyond‘ for the first time on the big screen. Next to ‘Zombie‘ it’s my favorite Fulci film. So as a Halloween treat here is the trailer!
A new thing I’m doing this Halloween is “Halloween Treats” which is just a random fun post about something Halloween related. It might be a horror movie trailer or funny picture or in this case a piece of music. Some days there might be five posts while others only one. For the first one I am posting the Halloween favorite Monster Mash by Bobby ‘Boris’ Pickett only this is one of someone’s house where they had the lights timed out to the song. I think it’s pretty cool. I might be annoyed if I was their neighbor and this was happening all night but I’m not so it’s cool. Here is Monster Mash in lights!
