Movie Matters Podcast

After an unavoidable hiatus, the Movie Matters podcast returns, better late than never, for its fourth annual Halloween special. Joining co-hosts Lee Howard and Michael Mackenzie once again is special guest Daniel Sardella. The trio look at an eclectic line-up of frightful festivities, starting with Michael Stephenson's 2012 Halloween Documentary THE AMERICAN SCREAM before going on to explore Stuart Gordon's 1986 cult classic FROM BEYOND and ending with Rob Zombie's controversial 2012 tale of demonic possession, THE LORDS OF SALEM. Also discussed are Halloween traditions and viewing habits, as well as a rundown of recent horror-themed Blu-ray releases of note.

Featuring music from HALLOWEEN III: SEASON OF THE WITCH (John Carpenter and Alan Howarth), FROM BEYOND (Richard Band), HALLOWEEN and HALLOWEEN II (John Carpenter), and THE LORDS OF SALEM (John 5 and Griffin Boice).
