Hello and welcome to our special Halloween edition of Dead Times where we talk about… Halloween! Today Peter and Tim are joined by Al to discuss the brand new Halloween. We go over the franchise’s convoluted history, and discuss what Donald Trump’s emergency presidential text messages would be when Michael Myers escapes.
In this exciting episode of Dead Times we have special guest Shannon Martinez, the regional coordinator of the Against Violence and Extremism network. We talk about Nazis, skinheads, music venues, life in college towns and the importance of being good at things besides music when in a band.
On this episode of Dead Times, Peter and Tim finally discuss a gay horror movie, the 2000 camp classic “Psycho Beach Party.” We talk about dance battles, and drag queens, and try to puzzle out what old people call gang bangs.
We have now reached the middle of our exploration of the “Cloverfield” movies with the excellent “10 Cloverfield Lane.” We talk about how it is also all about 9/11 and take a deep dive into the incredibly rich characters this movie offers.
Happy New Year’s Eve everyone! Today Peter and Tim are going to discuss 1980’s “Terror Train,” a movie which happens to take place on New Year’s Eve. We discuss the career of Jamie Lee Curtis, the role of LGBT people in horror films, and (for some reason) Mechagodzilla.
In this episode, Peter and Tim discuss the movie that essentially invented the slasher genre, “Black Christmas.” We discuss its enormous influence on “Halloween.” And just have some fun with Christmas themed horror!
In this episode Peter and Tim finish off the Scream franchise with its ten years later final movie, Scream 4! We talk about horror remakes, the centrality of the fictional “Stab” movies to the franchise, and how the characters are clear homages to the original.
