Gas Station Dentistry: It’s a Lost Art

Well it’s that time of the season and all hallows’ eve is almost upon us. You know what’s already upon us? Halloween (2018). Yeah we know, needing to add the (2018) suffix is a bummer, but you know what’s not a bummer? This movie.

The film masterfully balances multiple themes, characters, and tempos which make the Halloween series so memorable. There are certainly references to the original 1978 film, as well as influences from the Rob Zombie films and others.

Blumhouse’s latest production is another low-budget/high-quality product. It goes to show that top-notch films don’t need to cost 100’s of millions of dollars. With a little planning, passion, and creativity a film can go a long way.

The screenplay is written by Danny McBride, Jeff Fradley and David Gordon Green. Green also directed the film. McBride, Fradley, and Green also collaborated together on the TV series Vice Principals, a dark comedy about a high school and 2 vice principals.

The film also reunites Halloween (1978) alumni Jamie Lee Curtis, Nick Castle, and Tony Moran who played Laurie Strode, The Shape, and the adult Michael Myers (sans mask) respectively. John Carpenter returns to assist with the score, and as an executive producer as well.

It’s the Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

Episode26 - The Predator

The Predator (Technically “The Hunter”)

The Harbingers are back after a short hiatus and ready to talk about that game hunting traveler from another world, The Predator. Atul and Justin saw the film a couple weeks ago and generally enjoyed it. How much? Check out the episode to find out!

Shane Black and Fred Dekker team up again to bring us the latest entry in the series. Their last credited co-creation was 1987’s The Monster Squad, and Black was one of the costars of the original Predator film. Black also did script work on the original, despite what Atul thinks. Although, he wasn’t a co-writer, despite what Justin thinks.

The Predator stars Boyd Holbrook, Trevante Rhodes, Jacob Tremblay, Olivia Munn, Keegan-Michael Key, and Thomas Jane. Shane Black, along with his writing credit, also directs the film.
