    Before the Halloweenies head to Hollywood in August for Scream 3, they have some film courses to complete this summer at Windsor College. For July, they're studying Lamberto Bava's 1985 Italian meta blood bath Demons as part of this season's ensuing Randy's Recs series. Together, they discuss the differences between Bava and producer Dario Argento's style, the complicated history behind the “sequels” of Demons, Stivaletti's outstanding practical effects, the shocking mid-credits ending, and Cluadio Simonetti's top-tier score. Special guest includes Rachel Reeves.

H Kills

How about after Michael kills the first 3 firemen outside - The Man in Black shows up with his Tommy Gun and mows the rest of him down. And it’s Wynn.

Halloween Kills Trailer

Hi guys! I’ve really enjoyed your work reviewing the Halloween franchise but I was disappointed to hear just outright smear tactics on this one. The title itself we knew going in suggested the death count and rampage would be unlike anything we’ve seen. If you were trapped in a cellar and set on fire and manage to survive are you all really suggesting Michael and/or you shouldn’t be enraged and want to kill anything that moves? The 2018 movie outclassed all previous Halloween sequels and the idea of the town trying to rally as one to bring him down is something we’ve not yet seen. Spare me the Halloween 4 drunk idiots driving around in pickup trucks for all of 3 minutes. I enjoy your work, but on this one I respectfully disagree. That being said I hope you enjoy this movie and I anxiously await your review.
