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.

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.

Jamie Lee Curtis: Prom Night (1980)

We decided to wrap up our Jamie Lee Curtis retrospective by reviewing the classic horror film Prom Night, the film that has inspired many horror movies since it was released and continues to inspire today. What did we think about it? Well, perhaps we should have watched Terror Train instead? There’s some interesting stuff in Prom Night to be sure, but so much of it is either boring or just doesn’t work or is just plain confusing. We even brought in our pal Matt Dykes to help us work through this thing and he had similar problems.

But hey, if there’s anything we learned from this it is that Jamie Lee Curtis is a cinematic treasure. If nothing else, watch the movie for her…and then watch Terror Train.

Jamie Lee Curtis: Halloween h20 (1998)

We continue our Jamie Lee Curtis retrospective with Halloween H20: 20 Years Later, her celebrated return to both the horror genre and this franchise in particular. We have a lot to say about the film as it’s quite flawed and makes some odd choices throughout. The body count is low, and the mask changes partway through the film into something you might find at a pop up Halloween store. The film introduces Josh Hartnett and his messy hair baggy clothes combo to the world, and we see a young Joseph Gordon-Levitt get a skate to the face. Everything with Jamie Lee Curtis is quite good and she makes a traumatized Laurie Strode believable. Worth watching? Listen to find out.
