196: Halloween

David and James stand ominously and stare in through the window of the horror genre at a defining movie that set the course for the slasher genre. They take a stab at understanding our film fascination with fear, and this particular slice of cinematic history in terms of what is says about morality and the “final girl” trope. Join them as they unmask Halloween and examine the film’s ambiguities and seeming contradictions, thanks to our Patreon supporters and their pick for our podcast this month! 

As referenced in the episode, here’s James’ legacy article from Cinemagogue on the holy, hellish, hodgepodge history of Halloween!
