Halloween is here, and with it comes horror movie marathons. So, we decided to bring back 'Let's Talk Franchise' with The 'Halloween' series. There have been a lot of highs and lows throughout the series. Some of those things include: Laurie Strode, Paul Rudd's film debut, 'Season Of The Witch', the 'Cult of Thorn' trilogy, a CGI mask, Donald Pleasence, a blond Michael mask, and of course Busta Rhymes karate kicking Michael Myers out of a window. We'll let you figure out which is which.
Since we have already reviewed the newest 'Halloween', we'll be focusing on the first eight films. The Rob Zombie films will be featured in an upcoming Remakes episode.
Yes, that's right, Today we're talking about 'The Cabin in the woods.' This 2012 comedy-horror from joss Whedon & Drew Goddard changed the way we look at modern horror tropes. Having wrapped in 2009 & then sitting on the shelves for years due to MGM going bankrupt, it was finally picked up by Lionsgate and given a proper theatrical release in 2012. It's a good thing that it was because it's essentially the 'Scream' of this generation. So if you haven't seen it yet, go watch it, Then check out the review here!
