October 26th, 2017

Part of an ongoing series – the Needless Things Irregulars gather in the Phantom Zone to provide their own unique commentary on classic genre films! October’s film was chosen via fan poll on the Needless Things Podcast Facebook Group!

Have a happy Halloween, Halloween, Halloween with the Irregulars’ October Commentary for a movie that was once seen with a degree of disdain but that seems to have gained support in the last decade or so – Halloween III: Season of the Witch!

Over three decades ago the creative control behind the Halloween movie franchise decided to leave superstar slasher Michael Myers behind and forge ahead in a new direction. John Carpenter and Debra Hill chose to try a format that would turn any future sequels into more of an anthology of Halloween-themed stories rather than centering around a single character or setting. As a result, we now have this apocalyptic tale of terror!

Listen in as Dave, Arian, Ryan, and Rad Ranger gather together thirty-five years to the day after the original release date to share their thoughts on Season of the Witch!

NT%2B130%2Bpic.jpg


Phantom Troublemaker is joined by Beth V and by Doc Rotten from Horror News Radio to talk about found footage horror movies!

Found footage is a movie subgenre that creates the illusion of discovered events unfolding as a narrative in front of the viewer. Classic examples of the format include The Blair Witch Project, Paranormal Activity, and the much larger scale Cloverfield. It takes a lot of planning and skill to execute this particular style of filmmaking effectively, and some are definitely better at creating an immersive, believable experience than others.

Listen in as Phantom, Beth, and Doc Rotten talk about the hows, whys, and favorites of the found footage phenomenon in an all-new 31 Days of Halloween Needless Things Podcast!
