Movie Meltdown - Episode 246
Since we are all such fans of horror and Halloween in particular, this year we thought we'd do a tribute to Halloween all through the month of October. So this week, we kick things off with a spooky and nostalgic installment of The Grind, where we discuss Halloween costumes... which leads to many other areas like our own childhood memories, increasing commercialism, sexulazation and the origins of the holiday.
Join us in the velvety basement as we also mention... Flame Retardant, having a shirt with your name on it, The Halloween Tree, meth supports my theater habit, teaching chemistry on Molly, Fonzie, Amadeus, I mean this in the nicest possible way, full-on Ghost Dad, ping pong table full of laundry, Him, the star chamber, a skeleton playing a clarinet, the dieing off of nature, Sporty Magdalene, trick or treating as a flash card, the classic monsters, the basement of Westworld, flashing your steampunk ass, Hitchcock, full-on-moto, Ben Cooper, hobo, the American invention, Poe, being dressed like a pedophile, Christmas propaganda, pulp literature, puppet theater, poison candy and razors in the apples, explaining the whole James Whale movie to my teachers, calling off trick or treating, the new 80's monsters, candy corn, Love in Vein and eating churros off the floor.
"...Halloween used to be a bit more edgy and evil... and when you think about it, Halloween is another commercialized holiday the way Christmas is..."
