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!

Part of an ongoing series – the Needless Things Irregulars gather in the Phantom Zone to provide their own unique commentary on classic genre films!

John Carpenter’s The Thing set a new standard for horror films. Not recognized for the masterpiece it was upon its release in 1982, it has since been recognized as a high water mark of suspense and terror. The combination of actors, atmosphere, and Rob Bottin’s nightmarish special effects work create an unparalleled horror experience.

Phantom Troublemaker is joined by The Rad Ranger, Ryan Cadaver of The Casket Creatures, and The Thing superfan Gary Mitchel for this installment of Needless Commentary.

Grab your DVD, Blu-ray, or Betamax cassette and follow along at home as the gang share their thoughts about one of the greatest horror films of all time!
