This year, we scraped up this little-known flick with a mostly-unknown cast that happens to include Amanda Plummer. How she ended up in this turkey, we have no idea. The reviews online are kinder to this film than we ended up being. But you know Craig will give it a pass anyway.
The poster art alone is scary enough. There may not be the scariest movie behind it, but it’s high camp 80’s schlock and it takes place during a Halloween party in a possessed (not haunted – know the difference!) house, so it may just be what the doctor ordered for you this season. Give it a listen and see if you agree with our assessment of this cult classic.
They just don’t make ’em like this anymore. We thought Tales of Halloween was a solid horror anthology that was perfect for the season.
Fresh off the heels of two commercially successful films starring Michael Meyers, Team John Carpenter took a left turn and decided the Halloween series would be better as an annual holiday-themed horror anthology. And maybe it would have been, had they not led the charge with this turkey.
It didn’t make a big splash, but it did make a huge impression on both of us – and, we suspect, many likeminded souls of our generation. This movie celebrates all that is goofy and fun about this iconic character, and we had a blast revisiting the camp and the cheese this holiday season.
