BP Podcast, Episode 21: “A look back at ‘Silent Night Deadly Night 2’ & ‘Silent Night’ (2012)”

12 Days of Christmas #2 Happy holidays, friends! This week, we dive right into Christmas by chatting up a redemption viewing of Silent Night Deadly Night 2 (1987). We also rewatch the loose SNDN remake, Silent Night (2012), and discuss (is it still forgettable?). We also talk about recent movie viewings — including a lot of Thanksgiving and holiday flicks… Read More ›

Danzig’s Skeletons: A one-year-later review

Skeletons, the all covers album from Glenn Danzig and crew, was released almost a year ago. And between this record and the recent Misfits reunion shows,  it seems like Glenn is happy for the first time in his life. On Skeletons, eternal sad boy Danzig actually sounds like he is having…fun? Initially, the cover art… Read More ›

Night of the Living Dead Volume 1: Sins of the Father

It says right on the back of this graphic novel that it is a “retelling” of the original film. So much has been done and remade and reused from this film that nothing really seems like a great offense at this point, so that statement does nothing to add or takeaway from the book. The… Read More ›

Redemption Viewing (Halloween Edition): ‘Satan’s Little Helper’

Third time’s a charm, yeah? About this time 10 years ago, we were young and and free (sans kids) — consuming any and all Halloween-themed movies/TV episodes we could get our hands on — for better or worse. This was when we unearthed Satan’s Little Helper, the 2004 Halloween night romp about an annoying little kid with… Read More ›

Re-visiting Rob Zombie’s Halloween II

Seven years ago, on Halloween night…or, well actually, it was like in August I think, we watched Halloween II, the sequel to Rob Zombie’s divisive Halloween remake. Both Joanna and I hated it. So, of course, we had to watch it again and see if our initial hatred was warranted or if, with the passage… Read More ›

BP Podcast, Episode 18: Redemption Viewings for Rob Zombie’s ‘Halloween II’ & ‘Satan’s Little Helper’

Every movie deserves a second (or third) chance, right? Sure, why not. So, this week, we continue our October celebration by re-watching two movies we did not care for

A William Castle Triple-Feature

For my mom’s birthday in August, I bought her a bunch of old William Castle movies and promised that I would take a day off from work to submerge ourselves in these spooky (mostly) black and white delights. My mom loves classic film, and I love horror, so… it was a natural mishmash of interests…. Read More ›

Fanboys: Totally a Halloween Movie!

Okay, Fanboys (2009) is definitely not the first flick that pops into your brain when making a list of the movies you’re gonna watch in October, but it’s totally a Halloween movie. The film kicks off at a Halloween party. October 31, 1998. Three friends, dressed as Darth Vader and two Stormstroopers, are reunited with… Read More ›

SCHLUMMPPFF!: A Blood & Gourd Celebration!

When my copies of Blood & Gourd 1 and 2 came in, I posted that flipping through the books was like if Night of the Demons, a Reese’s peanut butter pumpkin, the Garfield Halloween special and that feeling you got when walking home from school in your costume on Halloween were all melted down and… Read More ›
