Dead Talk Live welcomes the cast of “13 Fanboy” as our new guests for a special Halloween episode! Actors Haley Greenbauer, Ron Sloan, and Drew Leighty will be joining us on our television show, live on Sunday October 31st at 6:00pm Eastern Time! Many fans will certainly be thrilled to see this fantastic cast discuss their recent film “13 Fanboy” (2021), which was released earlier this month.
Let’s assume that you are not a scary movie fan, but as Halloween nears, you decide that it’s time you got into the scary frame of mind. What better place to start than the franchise named after the most terrifying day of the year? But let’s assume you have never seen one of these films. Well, here’s everything you need to know. Before we begin, you are advised to forget the name “Halloween: Resurrection”, trust me.
Given the sour taste that “Resurrection” left and the mixed to negative reception that the remake series got, the logical step for many was to go into the sequel department again, only this time, making this a direct sequel to the 1978 film and ignoring the rest. “Halloween” (2018) does just that, with Michael having been held in Smith’s Grove after being shot by Loomis for the past 40 years.
Around the 10th anniversary of the original film, the “Halloween” franchise brushed away the anthology idea that “Season of the Witch” attempted to do and brought back the mainstay serial killer Michael Myers in “Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers” (1988).
Back in 1978, John Carpenter’s “Halloween” became a huge financial success and started the proliferation of the slasher genre that would begin in earnest in 1980. While you had the likes of “The Texas Chain Saw Massacre” (1974) and “Black Christmas” (1974) which could also be considered the genesis of that horror genre, seeing that Halloween grossed around $47 million in the box office (and was the 8th most successful film in 1978 despite its $300,000 production budget) made the prospect of sequels ideal for Compass International Pictures (later known as Trancas International).
As of October 7, it was announced that the US and Canadian VOD service Vision Films Inc. will premiere “White Sky”, a pulse-pounding sci-fi alien adventure from M and M Film Productions UK. Adam Wilson directed and produced the film, written by Philip Daay and co-produced by Malcolm Winter, Makenna Guyler, and M and M’s own Monika Gergelova. The movie was filmed during the pandemic on location in Wales last September.
Dead Talk Live has a new guest, and it is Sofia Bryant! This phenomenal actress will be joining us on our television show, live on Friday October 29th at 8:00pm Eastern Time! Many fans will certainly be thrilled to see this amazing talent who is possibly best known for her acting work on “The Girl in the Woods” (2021).
“There’s Someone Inside Your House” (2021) premiered on Netflix this past week by director Patrick Brice and produced by horror mastermind James Wan. Based on the novel of the same name by Stephanie Perkins, this modern-day slasher follows a teenager in a small Nebraska town as a killer stalks her classmates. The elusive assailant haunts those who have something to hide, revealing their most terrible secrets to the city before slaying them.
“Creepshow” (2021) is in its third season, running on the horror platform Shudder. The creepy anthology serves its viewers a variety of delectable tales of terror weekly. And although each episode is divided into two 25-minute segments, each bite-sized morsel is more than enough to tantalize the palate.
Not all is fair in life. Sometimes some nasty things happen to good and undeserving people. And righting wrongs is not always possible. But nothing satisfies a thirst for payback like a good revenge flick. And while there are plenty of those out there, here are the type five to whet the appetite: “A Classic Horror Story” (2021), “Thinner” (2015), “SAW” (2004), “Friday the 13th” (1980), and “Carrie” (1976). Besides, who doesn’t like to know that there is such a thing as divine retribution?
