  1. Great podcast. Black Christmas predates Halloween a few years and invented many of the horror/slasher conventions that halloween gets credit for. Worth seeing if you haven’t. The Halloween coming out next year sounds odd, Danny McBride is writing the screenplay! Looking forward to arsenic and old lace, believe it is the 3rd Capra film reviewed so far, and only the 2nd Cary Grant film.

    1. Yeah, we will probably review more Cary Grant films. I’m not sure about Capra films. Black Christmas is great…every year we review Christmas films in December. We are going to review Black Christmas for it, but it’s not set to be released until 12/20/19. We have 2017 and 2018 Xmas films booked already.

      1. Have you seen the trailer for the new Halloween? It’s sort of odd, it ignores all the sequels and is a direct sequel to the original.
