IT’S OUR 3RD ANNUAL VERY SPECIAL HALLOWEEN SPECIAL! (aka #57)

Posted on

 

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!!!

Hello, and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!! It’s our third annual Very Special Halloween Special, and Keith and I had a blast celebrating the holiday with these cinematic treats!

First up is my choice, 2013’s The WNUF Halloween Special…

Tonight at 7!!!

The premise: someone recorded a live, local Halloween special back in 1987 in a supposedly haunted house. What ensues is a fantastic “deteriorated VHS” recording of what transpired that night, including the super-cheesy ads. I always make sure this is on my annual personal Halloween film festival list, and I was thrilled to hear what Keith thought about it.

Next up, well, pretty much every horror fan in the world has been waiting for the new Halloween (2018), starring the incredible Jamie Lee Curtis, so we discussed it LITERALLY MINUTES AFTER WE SAW IT! I swear: you can still smell the popcorn. This was Keith’s idea, and I was 100% on board! We had a great time discussing the film and some of the background on it. We did include some spoilers, but until the very end, and we warn you beforehand…

Spoiler: the characters Laurie and Michael are both in this one…

Before all this I talk about my new TV love The Haunting of Hill House, and then later we discuss our theme for the next two episodes!

Won’t you join us?

Episode #56 is chock full of BAD WORDS

Posted on

Greetings HYSTO-philes! We’re back with Episode #56 and it is just bursting with Bad Words.

You can fill in the blanks on your own…

Yes, this time around we are covering Keith’s choice which is Bad Words, directed by and starring Jason Bateman as a forty year-old man who attempts to win a children’s national spelling bee because, well, if I tell you why then you won’t have any reason to watch the movie…

Hmmmmm. That’s actually not such a bad idea…

Keith says he felt very different watching this movie this time around; his enjoyment level changed…but as to whether he thought is was better or worse on his second watching, well, you’ll just have to listen in to find out…

Just one of the scenes with Jason Bateman’s character bullying a child in Bad Words. Trust me: this is the most tame one…

I have LOTS to say about this movie, plus we talk about what’s been entertaining us lately (I have LOTS to share about that as well) and we announce our choices for our 3rd Annual Very Special Halloween Special!

Won’t you join us?
