Halloween Retrospective #1: Halloween (1978)

Fans and historians of the slasher genre, don’t miss this!


00.00 Intro with Dan

03.10 Halloween discussion with Howard, Dan and Spider-Dan

In 2018, accompanied by a number of special guests, Howard and Dan recorded podcast discussions of every single film in the long-running Halloween franchise, but only the first two were actually made public (they’re on our YouTube channel).

Soon all of the remaining discussions will be released as on this podcast feed, so for completion’s sake, it seemed sensible that the YouTube episodes be included too.  And so, here is the first.

To discuss director John Carpenter’s 1978 classic Halloween, Howard and Dan are joined by writer/artist Steve Timms and the ‘ever-Amazing, ever-Spectacular’ Spider-Dan (presenter of the comic book podcast Spider-Dan and the Secret Bores).  The four of them enjoyed talking at great length and detail about a film close to all of their hearts (this podcast is, after all, significantly longer than the film it’s about).  We hope you enjoy it too.

All soundtrack clips from the film are used for the purposes of criticism, in the spirit of Fair Dealing (UK law) and Fair Use (US law).  No copyright infringement is intended.
