Bad Days in Haddonfield Ep. 13: Halloween Ends (2022)

Welcome to another pulse-pounding episode of “Bad Days in Haddonfield.” This week the Binge Buddies, comprised of Bryan Dressel, Matt “Zombie Dog Giggles” Dykes, Joel “Captain Obvious” DeWitte,  and Ryan “Comedy Central” Lootens come together to talk about “Halloween Ends,” which at the very least is better than “Kills.” That said, it’s a little of a different movie than one might expect given the advertising. Start “listening” to “see” for yourself. Oh wait.

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.

Hugo Weaving: Last Ride (2009)

We continue this roller coaster month of Hugo Weaving films with Last Ride, a father and son road trip movie that’s as dour as it is excellent. Weaving gives a stellar performance here as Kev, an abusive father with almost no likeable or redeemable qualities. Almost. Somehow, despite an entire movie of being an absolute shit, you still feel bad for the guy and his situation. And Tom Russell is no slouch either, playing the son Chook. With their powers combined, they really make us miserable, and that’s a good thing. Is this film a great idea during these challenging times? Maybe not. But you owe it to yourself to see a movie that does right by its genre.
