#345 – Spotlight On: Halloween (1978)
3 days ago
Just when you thought it was safe to put out your Jack-o-Lantern… That’s right; despite Halloween already having passed us by, we’re putting the Myers House back on the market so we can examine one of the more shameful entries in Mike’s Cinematic Pile of Shame: Halloween.
I’m your host, David Snider, and joining me as we lean heavy on the synth are fellow Smith’s Grove mental patients Ryan Caldwell and Michael Althouse.
Topics of discussion in this episode include the creation of nearly every Slasher trope in the book; we find out if John Carpenter’s classic still has the power to terrify; and finally, we examine the long line of sequels that Halloween birthed, including the infamous, Busta Rhymes-led Halloween: Resurrection.

My #1 weekly staple
These guys keep me company at work. I've been listening for 3 years and we live a state apart but they would no doubt have refrigerator privileges at my house. David, Cody, Chad, and Ryan I don't always agree but I always love to hear your opinions on movies. My husband is a movie buff and this gives us some common ground. 10 years of marriage leaves you sparse on discussion topics. Thanks for the entertainment and interaction. I've enjoyed it so much I thought I'd take a moment to let everyone know. :-)

Clerks - Verified
These guys are certainly clerks with a capital "C" and they're just polished enough to let you enjoy that fact, without being annoyed by it. Great geek-out fan show for all things movies, TV and the kinds of interests we had because we weren't dating... And I mean that as a compliment.
