Episode 63: Halloween 4 - Return of Michael Myers (1988)
The leaves are changing, pumpkins are ready for carving, and your hosts are taking over the October picks, starting with 1988's Halloween 4! Leave your love of John Carpenter at the door, as he pretty much had nothing to do with this film. Dust off your clown costumes (hello, relevant!), it's October on Horror Movie Night!
Quote of the Episode:
"This is my favorite Halloween movie of the franchise. I can't explain it." - Scott
More Part 4 in the Franchise
We're heading back to the killer doll well to talk alien demons, robot laser tag and the diminishing returns of Full Moon franchises with PUPPET MASTER 4! We are joined by our buddy Vincent DeSanti of Womp Stomp Films (director and Jason in the fantastic NEVER HIKE ALONE), who drunkenly agreed to tackle this pick with us at Pop Rock N Horror con earlier this summer. He may have the silkiest voice you've ever heard on our show, so bring a towel, he gon make u sweat.
We talk a lot about the diminishing returns of horror sequels, but the Leprechaun series is easily one of the worst offenders. Exhibit A: 1996's abysmal LEPRECHAUN4: IN SPACE. It's not even fun bad, it's just...low effort and cheap. I mean, the writers didn't even take the time to make Warwick Davis's lines rhyme! But never fear, your trusty tour guides through the shadowy world of questionable horror will take you by the hand and at least bring a bit of good out of this flaming dumpster fire of a flick. That's the Kelly luck o the Irish for ye this St. Paddy's!
He swore if we ever covered this movie he'd have no choice but to return as a guest on this show; and he's a man of his word! This week we are joined by Kyle Kuchta to discuss his favorite movie TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE: THE NEXT GENERATION. The film is jam-packed with craziness as well as Renee Zellweger and Matthew McConaughey for good measure.
