Happy October, everyone!

If you're a long time listener of the show, then you know that every October, we do a horror theme month. But one thing we've never done is tackle an entire franchise. Well, this year, we're taking things up a notch and spending the entire month of October by visiting each film in one of the most iconic horror franchises of all time.

With the upcoming sequel from David Gordon Green, we thought this would be the perfect time to finally take a look at John Carpenter's HALLOWEEN.

This gives us the opportunity to not only discuss one of the most groundbreaking horror films of all time, but also to discuss one of our favorite directors (who we've not discussed before now!) in John Carpenter.

And we're joined this week by a very special guest: friend of the podcast and all-around HALLOWEENexpert Jeremy Johnson.

As always, we dive deep into the making of the film and discuss its legacy and impact on the industry, all in an effort to decide if it's a worthy addition to the Psychotronic Hall of Fame. As always, that decision is yours!
