    Basic Instinct (1992) - Randy's Recs

    Basic Instinct (1992) - Randy's Recs

    After surviving the Hollywood horrors within Scream 3, the Halloweenies are heading upstate to San Francisco to solve a string of murderers. Make no mistake, these are grisly crimes, sure, but they're also familiar, especially for readers of crime novelist Catherine Tramell. You guessed it: For September, the gang taking an ice pick to Paul Verhoeven's 1992 erotic thriller Basic Instinct as part of this season's ensuing Randy's Recs series. Together, they discuss the smutty film's curious parallels to Wes Craven's meta franchise, the myriad controversies that surrounded the 1992 thriller, the behind-the-scenes chaos that would go on to fuel the film, the sexual fluidity (or lack thereof) of Michael Douglas, and the blockbuster sex appeal of Sharon Stone. Special guest includes Meagan Navarro.

    Scream 3 (2000) Pt. 2

    Production has resumed on the Halloweenies coverage of 2000's Scream 3. Finish your sandwich at the craft services table and hit the Woodsboro set with Justin Gerber, Mike Vanderbilt, Michael Roffman, and special guest Jenn Adams of Psychoanalysis: A Horror Therapy Podcast. In the second of two episodes dedicated to the would-be trilogy capper, they share their thoughts on the "B-listers" that make up Stab 3: Return to Woodsboro, learn a thing or two about Fantasy II Film Effects, chew into the themes associated with Sidney's arc, and rewrite the ending (to potentially better results). Once again, this episode is 100% cotton, so make sure you're not allergic, and start streaming.

    Scream 3 (2000) Pt. 1

    The Halloweenies have arrived in Hollywood, where it's lights, camera, and ... stab! Stab 3: Return to Woodsboro, to be more specific. If you couldn't guess from the Wet Seal wardrobes and garish hairstyles surrounding you, it's time to talk about 2000's Scream 3. Head to the craft services table with Justin Gerber, Mike Vanderbilt, Michael Roffman, and special guest Jenn Adams of Psychoanalysis: A Horror Therapy Podcast as they gab about Ghostface. In the first of two episodes dedicated to the would-be trilogy capper, they discuss the film's behind-the-scenes shakeups, the Columbine effect, the parody paradox, and how the Creed-produced nu-metal soundtrack can be traced back to Woodstock '99. This episode is 100% cotton, so make sure you're not allergic, and start streaming.

Franchise Deep Dives

They go into great depth on all of the franchises that they cover. The discussions of each film are always fun and entertaining.

Great podcast

Love this podcast and the effort you all put into it. I learn so much each time I tune in. Would love to listen to a “Best Halloween movies” episode (not the franchise, but the best movies that are set around Halloween or best embody the Halloween spirit). Cheers!

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.
