Continuing our 2018 Christmas celebration, we tackle the somewhat deep cut Silent Night, Deadly Night 4: Initiation. This Brian Yuzna-directed film really has no bearing on the previous SNDN films, and it lacks a lot of Christmas cheer too. What it does have, though, are bugs, Clint Howard, and more bugs. It's a weird film, but we cover the hilarity of spontaneous combustion, talk about the film's Bond girl, and discuss the "war on Christmas." Hopefully it doesn't make your skin crawl.

We're starting the Christmas season just a little bit early this year to get in all the films we want to do for the Festivus Series part 2. The first up on our list: Jingle All the Way, the Arnold Schwarzenegger vehicle that espouses the great holiday theme that you can save your marriage and be a great parent as long as you get your kid the Christmas gift they are begging for. We talk about Arnold and Sinbad's crimes in this film, the dated '90s references, Santa with nunchaku, and more!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone (well, American listeners)! After our hiatus post-Halloween, we decided we'd celebrate Turkey Day with an overlooked holiday film from John Hughes - Dutch. The movie stars Ed O'Neill and Ethan Embry as two unlikely travelers trying to get home for Thanksgiving, and we somewhat unfavorably say that this is a combination of Planes, Trains and Automobiles and Home Alone. We're also talking Genesee Brewing Company's new Dark Session Lager, the Schwarzbier style.

This is the final Season of Halloween episode, and maybe the last Halloween episode we do (except for Halloween 6 Producer's Cut)! We're talking Halloween 2018, the newest requel that has pretty much everyone in a fervor right now. But what did we think about it? You'll have to listen to find out. We talk about Karen and Allyson Strode, we talk about The Shape's new mask, the score from Carpenter, Carpenter, and Davies, and one thing that really bugs us: how did Michael do so much leg work in the prison?

Happy Halloween, everyone. We MAY be back before Halloween is over for one more special episode.

Never would have thought that Halloween: Resurrection would be more well-liked than some of the other sequels, but here we are. We're at the end of the 8-film series of Halloween films and this Busta Rhymes-sporting, Tyra Banks-dancing, Laurie Strode-killing machination has significantly moved up our best-of lists. We talk about all of this and then give a final ranking of the 8 films, and - spoiler - the rank has significantly changed from our expectations before we began this series. Hope you're having a great time with the new Halloween - we'll be seeing it and getting our episode up as soon as possible.

Sorry for the late post, guys! We had a bachelor party which made it hard to get this episode done in time. However, we do have the latest Season of Halloween here for your listening pleasure, and we're talking all things Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers. Specially, we are talking the theatrical cut, and we're loving Paul Rudd, some better kills, and the very low Loony Loomis rating as Loomis goes into retirement. Things we don't love include the Home Alone 2-style electrocution, the hard rock score, and a whole lot more.

Whoa now. We though Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers was bad, but Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers is just as bad or maybe a bit worse. We're talking about the upgraded Michael mask, Tina's french maid outfit, Jamie deciding she's not speaking and the retcon of her murdering her mother, Mikey and his Camaro, and a whole lot more. Plus, the Loony Loomis rating is off the charts. We're drinking a torp of Moustache Brewing Company's Late in the Evening English bitter.

We're back with Season of Halloween episode 4! And right on schedule, we're tackling Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers. We recognize that this film is really not that good, and it actually caught Ryne by surprise. We talk about the horrible mask, the annoying protagonists Jamie and Rachel, the great rack on Kelly, the nearly off-the-charts Loony Loomis, and a whole lot more. We're also drinking Brown's Brewing and Rare Form Brewing's collaboration Priam, the King of Troy Blonde Ale.

We're back with an all-new episode in our Season of Halloween celebration, this time moving on to the Michael Myers-less Halloween III: Season of the Witch! While we both recognize that the film isn't what most people would consider good, we do find some time to appreciate the awesome cheesiness of it all - from Tom Atkins' drinking problem to the great Conal Cochran to the insanely fast blossoming of love between Dr. Challis and Ellie. We had a great time talking about this classic redheaded stepchild and we hope you enjoy listening.

We're back with the second episode of our Season of Halloween experience, and we're talking about 1981's HALLOWEEN II! We cover a bunch of stuff - mayonnaise and ham sandwiches, the eerie hospital setting, Laurie's uselessness, the presence of Night of the Living Dead, and of course the Loony Loomis rating for this film. We're also talking Goose Island's Redub Amber Ale.
