Episode 196: Deuceoween MikeTober 2015

It's the witching hour, it's the haunted time of the year, its the scariest part of the year... its Deuceoween, featuring the return of MikeTober!

First, d$, Mikey, Pinky, & Friend of the Show Jeremy Burgess, coming live from the Orlando Film Festival where he is promoting his Indie Short Film "Dead Saturday",dust off an old favorite called Reel or Unreel, guessing what movie is a real reel out of a group of unreal reels based on the terrible descriptions of the movies themselves... "Children of the Forlorn"?  "Hell Night"?  Or even "Measuring Tape, Measuring Death"?

Then Jeremy and Pinky discuss some of their favorite horror films seen this month--"Hausu" and "Cannibal Holocaust" and "The Vanishing" (both original and remake) and more.

We give a Wes Craven tribute, discussing a few of his classics like "The Hills Have Eyes", the Scream Series and the three Nightmare on Elm Street films he worked on, plus a few clunkers too ("The People Under the Stairs", anyone?), and the impact on the horror genre he had... plus, how great was it to be in a film called "Tales from the Crapper"?  That's not a fake title, by the way.

Then, MikeTober 2015 comes full circle, as Mikey discusses the five films assigned to him by the show and it's friends.  Mikey hates horror movies, so this was a chore for him... what does he think about "Hellraiser" or "Creepshow" or "The Omen" or "Nightmare on Elm Street"?   Plus more discussion on the real director of "Poltergeist".

And to discuss "Sleepaway Camp", we make an unplanned call to Remodeling Clay Shaver to discuss the film--and most notably, the ending of it all.
