After more than two years away, Susie Richards returns to the podcast! This time, we take a look at the original horror classic, Halloween. John Carpenter's influential masterpiece has affected horror films and audiences alike for generations, resulting in many sequels and even remakes over the years, but we won't get into that right now.

Please join us, as Susie and I discuss pacing, the nature of evil, how modern horror stacks up to more traditional methods and sadism versus suspense. Remember to listen for the preemptive countdown before starting the film on your DVD.

NOTE: Due to some minor, technical difficulties, the episode cuts off at the end, before we get the chance to say goodbye. Don't worry though, because we were pretty much finished by then, and you didn't miss anything big.

Happy Halloween!!!

You know, when I made that 40 years comment, I was thinking it was made in the early 70\'s. Heh. I\'m not terribly good with dates! Or math.

And for anybody who is curious, the technical difficulties can be attributed to my ghetto power strip, which temporarily disconnects everything if it gets nudged even a centimeter. :)

On remakes: Sometimes a remake is done where they change the setting to make the movie more understandable to the viewers. You can think of Romeo & Juliet version with (Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes)
