There have been MANY different Halloween's that have been haunted by the ghost/physical being of Michael Myers. Michael also has one of the highest body counts, when to comes to slasher villains!! So, it makes sense that eventually we would make our rounds to a Halloween movie, and what better time to jump in, than right now, in the middle of a trilogy set of films, in the latest adventures of Michael Myers!"The nightmare isn't over as unstoppable killer Michael Myers escapes from Laurie Strode's trap to continue his ritual bloodbath. Injured and taken to the hospital, Laurie fights through the pain as she inspires residents of Haddonfield, Ill., to rise up against Myers. Taking matters into their own hands, the Strode women and other survivors form a vigilante mob to hunt down Michael and end his reign of terror once and for all." The movie starts off immediately after the ending of the first in this trilogy. Everyone of the heroes thinks that they've trapped Michael in a burning home, with the heroes on their way to the hospital! Of course, by pure luck, and skill with many different weapons, Michael eventually makes his way out of the home safely, and ensures that this town is filled with murder!!

Halloween Kills (2021), starring Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode, is (depending on your outlook) either the 12th or 3rd film in the beloved Halloween franchise, and a direct sequel to Halloween (2018), starring Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode, which itself was a direct sequel to Halloween (1978), starring Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode. If that sounds confusing then don't worry, because the good news is that Halloween Kills is so rubbish that you'll quickly stop caring at all! We ask what went wrong, why any self-respecting modern-day slasher would draw inspiration from the very worst of the Friday the 13th films, whether 'First, do no harm' is followed by 'Second, evil dies tonight' and debate the merits of leaving a bloodied machete in the bed of a sleeping grandmother. All of which leads to one important question: How would you survive? Whatever happens, one thing's for sure: People are afraid. That is the true curse of Michael.

Before the guys get started, Joe jumps in solo and shares his thoughts on Halloween Kills (with some spoilers). The guys are back for another Halloween Bonus with the fifth installment of the franchise, Halloween V: The Revenge of Michael Myers. Joe reveals that this is the only Native American Actor to take on the role of The Shape and discuss the major plot point that was never supposed to happen (and was later retconned and removed for the new trilogy). They talk about why Danielle Harris returned to this film when the original script called for an older version of Michael's niece. Donald Pleasance is shown to be a true gentleman (hence the name) on set and they pitch a more supernatural connection between Michael and Jamie. They give their thoughts on Variety's claim that Halloween is a rip off of Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Joe lists the countries that put this movie straight to video, making Halloween V the smallest release for any film in the franchise. Joe points out a cameo by Greg Nicotero and reveals an interesting common thread between part 5 of this, Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street. Todd gives Joe some advice about a couple's costume for Halloween. They discuss an accident on set and how the Director made it so much worse. Joe has an idea to connect thenew movies to the old ones, restoring Laurie Strode as Michael's Sister. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- DISCORD - https://discord.gg/a6UEWh9zft PODCAST - https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/miscast-commentary/id1145697204 WEBSITE - http://www.miscastcommentary.com/ TWITTER - https://twitter.com/miscastpodcast TIK TOK - https://www.tiktok.com/@miscastcommentary FACEBOOK - https://www.facebook.com/miscastcommentary TEEPUBLIC - https://www.teepublic.com/stores/miscast-commentary?ref_id=7636 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Follow Joe!

If you've been a part of the online discussion, or at least aware of how people feel about Halloween Kills, then you're in for a treat! Daniel didn't like Halloween Kills, but Melvin did! Thus begins some great Halloween banter! Topics: Melvin really wants to talk about Halloween Kills, so they waste no time and jump right into it.Chronicling the various canon of the Halloween franchise, and laying the framework between Halloween (2018) and Halloween Kills.Daniel was on board with Halloween Kills for about 20-30 minutes, and then it started to lose him.Daniel also feels Halloween Kills takes itself too seriously, trying to elevate a franchise whose groundwork is based in simplicity.CinemaScore was at Melvin's screening and he gave Halloween Kills an A! His wife Kathryn gave it a C.Melvin suspects David Gordon Green is creating his Halloween Trilogy of movies to be something people routinely binge during the month of October, similar to watching the extended cuts of Lord of the Rings. Melvin didn't like Halloween (2018), putting it at #63 out of the 68 movies he's seen from 2018, but he suspects that Halloween (2018) and Halloween Kills pair together well as a double feature which would probably improve his experience with Halloween (2018).Halloween Kills spends time having characters try and figure out who Michael Myers is only to graciously have Michael Myers immediately show up to murder them.Melvin suspects a lot of what contributes to his positive thoughts on Halloween Kills is due to a fun theater experience with a lively, engaged audience.Celebrating that Donald Pleasance was not resurrected via CGI but rather Dr. Loomis was brought back via another actor, prosthetics, and voice acting.For Daniel, even though the movie loses itself, it never stops being engaging.Discussing the bizarre mob sub-plot, how it sort of means nothing, yet incidentally correlates socially as a reminder of how absurd January 6th really is.Talking about the best characters all year: Big John & Little John.The movie has so many "movie lines" where characters just say things you only say in the movies.Is Michael Myers homophobic? Let's discuss.Is this trilogy trying to turn Michael Myers into some sort of Jason Voorhees super-powered adjacent?Recommendations:  F.F.

The Classic Film: Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers (1989) "One year after the events of Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers, the Shape returns to Haddonfield once again in an attempt to kill his now-mute niece” (IMDb.com). Look, it isn't as bad as everyone says. Yes, it teases a sharp turn toward garbage in the next installment and it's not a great movie, but there's still some quality stuff here. The Modern Film: Halloween Kills (2021) "The saga of Michael Myers and Laurie Strode continues in the next thrilling chapter of the Halloween series” (IMDb.com). Well, they've lost the plot. This follow-up to the admirably great 2018 refresh is so fan-servicey that it's hard for a fan to actually enjoy. It wouldn't be so bad if it were at least competent... but it's not. This is one of the biggest dips in quality since Part II in 1981. At least Carpenter's soundtrack is still pretty good?

Tony and Crystal get together to talk about the latest entry in the Halloween film franchise as well as some of the previous entries. In this movie review/podcast they will talk about all the things that make this movie CRAZY! Like how the entire town of Haddonfield become an angry mob, how Michael can survive almost anything, and how he has basically become a horror movie John Wick. The nightmare isn't over as unstoppable killer Michael Myers escapes from Laurie Strode's trap to continue his ritual bloodbath. Injured and taken to the hospital, Laurie fights through the pain as she inspires residents of Haddonfield, Ill., to rise up against Myers. Taking matters into their own hands, the Strode women and other survivors form a vigilante mob to hunt down Michael and end his reign of terror once and for all.Edited by Jessica Hickson Tony's Evil Killer Sister played by Johanna.

Welcome to the Munsons at the Movies Podcast. Each episode we delve into the filmography and impact of a randomly selected actor. In this horror-themed Halloween episode, we explore the career of Jamie Lee Curtis. Best known for her roles as Laurie Strode in the Halloween franchise, Helen in True Lies (1994) and Tess in Freaky Friday (2003), Curtis is nothing short of an icon with film credits in six separate decades. Joined by Stephanie Malone (The Angry Princess), known for her work with MorbidlyBeautiful.com and the Cheer & Loathing Podcast, we discuss Curtis' impact on the horror genre, her ability to play a diverse array of roles, James' lack of adoration for the Kranks, folks who share a birthday with Kyle, and listen in awe as Stephanie gushes over Curtis' impressive career.

The first reaction to Halloween Kills, the sequel to 2018 Halloween, is "What the Hell happened?" The 2018 film felt like a fitting end for Michael Meyers and Jamie Lee Curtis' Laurie Strode. In that 2018 film, we watched Laurie take the fight to Michael and it was actually pretty enjoyable. Halloween Kills is a far cry from that film. It's so bad it leaves you wondering if the same crew that made the first film made this one. Surprisingly, the answer is "yes". David Gordon Greene is back as director as are the same writers (Scott Teams and Danny McBride). So what the hell happened? Why did this film fall so far off from what they originally did? The biggest thing that doesn't work for this film is that it sidelines the best thing about the first film. Jamie Lee Curtis was great in the first film. In this film she doesn't share a single scene with her nemesis Michael Meyers. She doesn't die, she's just not used in any scenes with him. That is a bit of a spoiler but after seeing the trailers and promotion for this film, it feels like false advertisement and needs to be called out. Instead of focusing on Strode the film decides to bring in a bunch of other characters from previous films or encounters with Meyers and turn them into a militia that goes after Meyers. While that seems like a plot point that could be interesting, it falls flat for a couple of reasons.  First, it feels forced. Anthony Michael Hall plays an adult Tommy Doyle. Tommy has an obsession with taking down Michael but he thinks he's going to do it with a handful of random folks with a baseball bat. Why on earth would Tommy think a baseball bat is going to stop Michael Meyers? It just feels like the film wanted to say "See, we're connecting it all back to the original series" but didn't care how or why or even if they should. The second issue is that the film seems like it's trying to make a larger commentary on mob mentality but it does a piss poor job at it.  On a positive (maybe the only one), the kills are gory. But they're also boring. Yes, Michael Meyers is a force of nature that is going too plow through people. But Halloween Kills feels like that was the only trick they had up their sleeve and it overplayed it. At some point it felt like watching an old school horror film where you're watching not because it's scary but because the characters are so dumb they deserve to die.  This film ends with the clear indication that they want to make another one. But it really doesn't deserve to continue. Yet that's the history of the Halloween films and the curse of Michael Meyers. Even when they should die, they just pop back up and continue on.

Yes, folks, we know that this week's Empire Podcast is a long 'un, but in fairness it's still three minutes shorter than No Time To Die, and is so packed with podcast goodness that we barely know where to begin. On the interview front, there are cracking conversations as Chris Hewitt sits down with the legendary Jamie Lee Curtis to talk about returning as Laurie Strode in Halloween Kills. You may be surprised to hear that this one gets pretty serious, and pretty emotional. Which is not the case with Chris' interview with Todd Haynes, the wonderful director of new documentary, The Velvet Underground. He talks to Chris about doing the Velvets justice, becoming friends with John Cale, his musical prowess, and his attraction to making films with 'velvet' in the title. But we're especially stoked this week to be joined in the podbooth, for the first time since this infernal pandemic started, by an actual guest. Jim Cummings, the star/co-writer and co-director of The Beta Test (and one of the stars of Halloween Kills) swings by for the first hour, answers some listener questions, discusses his approach to filmmaking, and generally has a giggle. Then, once he's gone, Chris, Helen O'Hara and James Dyer discuss the week's movie news, including the new trailers for Scream, Home Sweet Home Alone, and The Beatles: Get Back, and in a bumper reviews section they dig deep into Venom: Let There Be Carnage, The Last Duel, The Beta Test, Halloween Kills, Ron's Gone Wrong, and The Velvet Underground. Now do you see why we took nearly three hours? Enjoy, in instalments if you have to.
