Needless Things Podcast 209 – Evil Dead (2013) Needless Commentary

NT%2B209%2Bpic.jpg

Part of an ongoing series – the Needless Things Irregulars gather in the Phantom Zone to provide their own unique commentary on classic genre films!
 
Selecting April’s movie proved to be quite the trial for the Commentary Team. The desire to do something 4/20 appropriate was strong, but also presented a batch of movies that could prove… challenging.
 
Finally, at the eleventh hour, a chance Instagram post from none other than Fede Alvarez, director of 2013’s Evil Dead, inspired the final selection.
 
Evil Dead was released five years ago to mixed reactions. Despite a strong cast, a new central story that created compelling narrative options, and a strong emphasis on practical effects, many die-hard fans of the original films refused to accept this newest entry into the franchise.
 
Listen in as the Team reviews Evil Dead to determine if it is the new ultimate experience in grueling terror!

Needless Things Podcast 184 – 31 Days of Halloween: Halloween III Needless Commentary

NT%2B184%2Bpic.jpg

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!
