Movie Meltdown - Episode 457
This week we hang out in the spooky outdoors as we reminisce about some of our favorite Halloween costumes, collecting VHS tapes, the first time watching a horror movie and even trying to make our own movies.
And as we weave through enough tangents to de-rail even the Terror Train, we also cover… Drive-in Theater, Siskel and Ebert, Michael Myers mask, tracking lines, the box with the slide, here’s blood and some jingle bells, Spotlight, super 8, mom and pop video stores, Joe Bob Briggs, they made this huge creature out of bubble gum and latex, hiding behind the sofa, Dark Vader, there’s a little Samhain in all of us, milk, The Creature from the Black Lagoon, having your candy X-rayed,The Movie Channel, Ben Cooper, Night of the Living Dead, there’s definitely a werewolf in there, they took a Polaroid picture of me, Elvira, Spencer's Gifts, Hammer Films, plastic hoses spraying blood, Fangoria Magazine, our console television, plastic fangs, Yoda blood on your log, I was talking about the movie Porky’s, watching black and white television, meeting Darth Vader at the mall, Harvest Lake, a convenience store with a video store in the back, Evil Dead 2 and putting on a mask and hiding in the closet.
“...my mother would sit me down and she called them…’Let’s go watch the spookies’.”
