    Halloween Kills

    Halloween Kills

    It’s easy to blame Haddonfield’s high body count on local boogeyman Michael Myers, but many of the latest Halloween Kills are being committed by a violent mob of formerly decent citizens. Did babysitter Jamie Lee Curtis, terrified kids Anthony Michael Hall and Kyle Richards, and shaky cop Will Patton grow up to become the real monsters of the community?  And will Michael approve of the changes made to his sister’s bedroom when he catches up with the current owners of his redecorated house?  Listen Now as Arnie, Stuart, and Brock unmask this sequel!

    Halloween II (2009)

    With the release of the latest movie in the Halloween franchise, Rob Zombie’s Halloween II, the hosts of Now Playing look into Michael Myers’ family scrapbook, watching and reviewing all ten Halloween movies. Knights in White Satin, Sherri Moon Zombie in a white dress, and a white horse all populate Rob Zombie’s stylistic but thematically confused sequel to his 2007 remake of Halloween. If, as Loomis says, ‘Bad taste is the petrol that fuels the American dream’ then this movie is a dream come true. Listen to the hosts of Now Playing as we conclude our Halloween retrospective series and find out if a sequel of a remake really can hold a candle to the original.

    Halloween (2007)

    With the release of the latest movie in the Halloween franchise, Rob Zombie’s Halloween II, the hosts of Now Playing look into Michael Myers’ family scrapbook, watching and reviewing all ten Halloween movies. After a series of sequels with widely varying quality, Michael Myers follows Leatherface to have an extreme makeover for the 21st Century audience. Directed by Rob Zombie this film is a hybrid of Zombie’s aesthetic previously seen on screens in House of 1000 Corpses and Devil’s Rejects, and John Carpenter’s original vision. It’s part prequel, part remake, and all Rob Zombie, with Malcom McDowell taking on the role of Loomis. But does the remake work, or should Busta Rhymes have returned and the old story continued? Listen to find out!

    Halloween: Resurrection

    With the release of the latest movie in the Halloween franchise, Rob Zombie’s Halloween II, the hosts of Now Playing look into Michael Myers’ family scrapbook, watching and reviewing all ten Halloween movies. Ever wonder what happens if you put Busta Rhymes, Karate, The Blair Witch Project, Big Brother, American Pie, and Michael Myers all in a blender? Well, this is it! It’s Halloween: Resurrection and despite having his head chopped off in the last movie, Michael Myers is back to eat more rats (with Fennel!) and kill more people. Is this hip reimaging just what the series was calling for? Listen to find out!

Halloween 2007

The Rob Zombie remake was amazing to me. The killing scenes are perfect for understanding how evil and heartless Michael is.
