More Films From the Early 2000's
It's Halloween week and time for our last horror anthology, so of course we pulled out the big guns with 2007's TRICK R TREAT! We are joined by Jason of Creepy Co, and spend the entire episode just gushing about what a great piece of entertainment this one is. We also get into a nice tangent about Super Troopers, so don't worry, still on-brand for us. Make sure your jack-o-lantern is lit all night long, just in case!
It's summertime and your HMN boys are downwind of something stinky, so of course we need to investigate. Following our noses, we stumble across the underappreciated 2005 remake of the Vincent Price classic HOUSE OF WAX. While we may not all agree on the merits of this film, we do agree that the practical effects and kills are delightfully gruesome. Also, props to whoever made Elisha Cuthbert look like a Plain Jane here... that is no small task. Wax poetic with us on the first episode of Year Five of Horror Movie Night!
You thought Halloween was over 2 weeks ago? WRONG. After much deliberation, Scott has decided to take one for the team and pick a Rob Zombie Halloween movie. No, not that one. Or that one. Or that one. Or...oh whatever, it's HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES from 2003! We're pissing everyone off with our annoying laugh and soliloquizing at cheerleaders about popular posts on /r/conspiracy so strap in for another dose of TCM2 fun even though we already discussed that movie.
