It’s the last week of October and that means that it is almost time for Halloween. You probably already know this, but just in case you don’t… NEWSFLASH!
But really, Happy Halloween to everyone!
We talk spooky October things for the first half of the show and their recommendations segment. We each chose only one thing to talk about (as they’re all sleep deprived from their 24-hour Extra Life game-a-thons) and the lucky things you should check out are: Wytches #1 (by Scott Snyder), Limbo (the video game) and Batgirl #14: Terror from the Third Dimension (the comic by Bryan Q. Miller).
In the second half of the show, it’s another list episode where we pick three of our favourite Halloween/spooky/horror/October films and do a little countdown. We hope you enjoy! Let us know what YOUR three favourite horror(ish) movies are in the comments below or over on the forum.
And just in case you missed it, our Extra Life donations are still open for a few more days. If you didn’t have a chance to support us over the weekend, you can still help us out. Click here to donate.
I can't Imagine caring that deeply about whether 28 days is zombie or not, I mean it's zombieish right. And now to shift from not caring about minutia to complaining about minutia (except not really complaining).
Doug Bradley was actually in Hellraisers up through the 8th film (hellraiser 1-3, bloodline, inferno, hellseeker, deader and hellworld). I don't bring it up in complaint but only to point out that some of these (specifically inferno and hellseeker) are actually kind of diamonds in the rough when it comes to low budget horror. I think it's not too difficult to argue that part 3 (hell on earth) is actually the best one of all. As far as the rest go there are some really interesting stories about bloodline having a bunch of drama (ending up being an Alan Smithee Film, which is a pseudenym for when a director doesn't want his name attached to a project. Seriously go google Alan Smithee) where the finished product apparently had little to nothing to do with the original concept; rumors are there might even be an alternate director's version out there in a vault somewhere. They did get a new pinhead for the last installment (I believe the last hellraiser to get a theatrical release was bloodline) though even the last two Doug Bradley films (Deader and Hellworld) were somewhat less than noteworthy. So there's Hellraiser in a wrapped up in a rather bloody little package.
Total aside for because this is a horror themed show, Don Coscorelli shot and completed a fifth Phantasm Movie with basically nobody even knowing about it. Full original cast set to come out next year a full 17 years after the release of part 4.
In a rich man's house there is no place to spit but in his face.

Wow, five episodes in a row, you ladies are kicking ass!
As for horror(or Halloween themed) movies, i don't have any that come to mind right now cause i'm not a huge horror movie guy(total wimp)but there are some horror comics that i love.Like Joe Hill's The Cape, Locke and Key, Revival, American Vampire.And i just read the first couple of issues of Afterlife with Archie that i also really liked, even though i'm totally not familiar with any of the characters.
