It's that special time of the year once again as the Movie Matters Podcast rises from the coffin for its seventh annual Halloween special. Lee Howard, Michael Mackenzie and guest host Daniel Sardella (of the Media Meltdown network's Focus on Film podcast) cast their critical eyes over three fang-tastic vampire films: Roman Polanski's 1967 horror-comedy THE FEARLESS VAMPIRE KILLERS (a.k.a. DANCE OF THE VAMPIRES), Kathryn Bigelow's haunting 1987 vampire-western NEAR DARK, and Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi's funnybone-tingling 2014 mockumentary WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS.
Three spooktacular horror DVDs and BDs are also up for grabs. Listen to the end for details of how to enter the competition!
The music in this episode is from THE FEARLESS VAMPIRE KILLERS by Krzysztof Komeda, NEAR DARK by Tangerine Dream, and WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS by Norma Tanega. The intro and outro music was composed by Cevin Moore.
Special thanks to Cevin Moore, Alan @ Halloween Fury and Tristan Lofting for their opinions on our three featured movies. Happy Halloween, everybody! Be scared but be safe.
