    The Exorcist III (1990)

    The Exorcist III (1990)

    After recovering from last week's dive into Exorcist II, we're ending the month with the oft-misunderstood Exorcist III from 1990, written and directed by William Peter Blatty, the original author of The Exorcist. You don't want to miss this one, listeners, because there's some definite moments of horror zen in this grey sea of monologues. The film stars George C. Scott, Brad Dourif, Ed Flanders, Jason Miller, and Nicol Williamson.

    Halloween (2018)

    We're continuing our deep dive into the Halloween franchise by immersing ourselves into 2018's Halloween, the sequel that horrifically murdered all the other sequels from the timeline. Directed by David Gordon Green and executive produced and scored by none other than John Carpenter himself, this sequel promises to return us to Haddonfield and into the trauma-ridden arms of Laurie Strode herself, Jamie Lee Curtis.

Film Flamin’ Fun!

The Film Flamers are an awesome duo. They bring a nice bit of comedy to their serious, deep-dive discussions of horror and horror-adjacent films all while interacting with their listeners.

The Film Flamers always take it deep. They leave no stone unturned. In their deep-dives of horror films, they provide historical context along with their own social commentary which is sometimes serious, sometimes hilarious, oftentimes both.

This is a must-hear podcast!
