Needless Things Podcast 234 – Halloween 40th Anniversary Live from Dragon Con

Recorded LIVE at Dragon Con 2018 for the Horror Track!

John Carpenter’s Halloween changed horror cinema 40 years ago. Our pal Derek Tatum put together a roundtable of luminaries to discuss the original as well as the upcoming sequel. Our own Dave West moderated a fantastic panel consisting of author Mari Mancusi, author/illustrator Catherine M. Scully, author Valerie Hampton, and author Clay Gilbert.

The group discusses the impact of the original film and the significance of its holiday setting. Michael Myers, Laurie Strode, and Samuel Loomis are also discussed in-depth, as their complicated relationship contributes hugely to the lasting appeal of the film.

Listen in as this talented group dissect one of the greatest horror films of all time on the newest episode of the Needless Things Podcast!
