Bad Days in Haddonfield Ep. 11: Halloween (2018)

We’re back with a new and exciting episode of Bad Days in Haddonfield. This week Bryan Dressel, Matt “Zombie Dog Sloppy Nuts” Dykes, Joel “Minion” DeWitte,  and Ryan “Pork Chop” Lootens sit down to talk about David Gordon Green’s Halloween, which kickstarts the most recent trilogy. At least this first entry is good!

Bad Days in Haddonfield Ep. 10: Halloween II (2009)

This week on Bad Days in Haddonfield the Binge Buddies, comprised of Bryan Dressel, Matt “Zombie Dog Stu Macher” Dykes, and Joel “Amber Freeman” DeWitte, tackle the sequel to Rob Zombie’s “Halloween,” aptly titled “Halloween 2.” It’s a natural progression to Zombie’s interpretation of the characters, but that doesn’t necessarily mean its any good. It’s not boring, at least!

NOTE: This is the last Binge Buddies of the year. We will be back later in January with the final Halloween trilogy, starting with…Halloween.

Bad Days in Haddonfield Ep. 9: Halloween (2007)

This week on Bad Days in Haddonfield, Bryan Dressel, Matt “Zombie Dog Debbi Loomis” Dykes, and Joel “Richie Kirsch” DeWitte come together to discuss “Halloween.” No. Not that one. The Rob Zombie one. It’s a remake that’s…fine, and the Binge Buddies unpack that in the only way they can, with great humor and lots of jokes.

Bad Days in Haddonfield Ep. 8: Halloween Resurrection

Welcome to another fun and fanciful episode of Bad Days in Haddonfield, the Binge Buddies retrospective on the Halloween franchise. Bryan Dressel, Matt “Zombie Dog” Dykes, Joel DeWitte, and Ryan Lootens (in a shotgun review) join forces to dog on the absolute pile that is known as “Halloween Resurrection.” In it, Jamie Lee Curtis yeets herself out of the narrative and Michael Myers can walk through walls. There’s a lot here and you’ll want to dive in right away.

Bad Days in Haddonfield Ep. 6: Halloween 6 The Curse of Michael Myers

Welcome to another exciting episode of Bad Days in Haddonfield, in which our Binge Buddies Bryan Dressel, Matt “Zombie Dog Chucky” Dykes, and Ryan “Zuzu” Lootens join forces to toil their way through the schizophrenic producer’s cut of Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Meyers. Lot of oddities to be found in this film compared to the previous and it may be the lowest the franchise has descended so far in quality.  Don’t worry, though. It’s all uphill from here….maybe.

Welcome to another exciting episode of Bad Days in Haddonfield.

Will the 6th movie save the day?

NOTE: The audio has some frustrating issues part-way through the episode, so apologies and thank you for your patience and understanding.

Bad Days in Haddonfield Ep. 3: Halloween III Season of the Witch (1982)

Hi and welcome to the (somewhat late) next exciting episode of Bad Days in Haddonfield, our look back at the Halloween Franchise over the years. Bryan Dressel, Matt “Zombie Dog Ghostface” Dykes, Ryan “Harry Warden” Lootens, and Joel “Grant Grant” DeWitte sit down to talk about the divisive “Halloween III: Season of the Witch,” which features no Michael Myers and has nothing to do with the movies surrounding it. Bonus: the crew breaks into an impromptu performance of “Silver Shamrock” and it goes about as well as you would expect.
