It’s time for another in our series of Halloween film reviews, freed at last from the 2018 vault which houses all of the recordings that Howard and Dan made in the run-up to the release of Halloween (2018).
For this episode, focusing on perhaps the most peculiar instalment of the franchise (which reportedly gave Christopher Lee his second opportunity to turn the series down), they’re joined by Halloween review veteran Spider-Dan and a new guest to the podcast, actor Luke Richards.
