Episode 141 -- Intermission: Halloween

That's right, this time the guys in The Deucecast Movie Show take on Halloween... no, not the holiday... but the 1978 classic film, Halloween.  Starting from the bone-chilling score that is comprised of just a few notes (and a million nightmares), d$, Mikey & P!nky break down the classic from John Carpenter.

Discussions include the plot itself, the infamous mask and it's origins, Jamie Lee Curtis, the music, the extended scenes and more.

This begins our three-part Halloween (the holiday, not the movie) series of shows... first, this Intermission... then, our Main Show next Monday with a Halloween-movie version of "Reel or Unreel," along with our favorite Horror Films of All Time, and the results of Miketober--Mikey watching classic scary movies, which he hates.

And before Halloween, our usual round up of ReFlicktions, this time with P!nky attempting to watch about 188 scary films per day.  Our young padawan has goals.

THIS FRIDAY... HUUUUUUGE ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT THE PODCAST... listen live on www.thedeucecast.com or find us on Stitcher, or download the show on Monday to hear what's in store for The Deucecast Movie Show!!

In 1971, Peter Bogdavich shot a film in black and white, casted relative unknowns like Jeff Bridges, Cybill Shepherd, Randy Quaid and Timothy Bottoms, along with old Hollywood legends like Ben Johnson, and created a masterpiece film about a dying small town from the 50s buried in West Texas.  Winner of 2 Academy Awards and nominated for 8, the guys tackle The Last Picture Show in this latest Intermission episode.
