Episode 88: Remakeoween VI | FRIDAY THE 13TH (2009)

Episodes

On our sixth Remakeoween episode we talk about Friday the 13th, the 2009 remake – and luckily it corresponds with Friday, October 13th! We talk about stupendous boobies, all of the film’s gory scenes, the douchebag bros that populate the cast, the fast-moving Jason, and we critique the film’s 20 minute pre-title opening. We also cover some News in a new segment, and a new beer segment: Sam Adams Octoberfest vs. Harpoon Octoberfest!

Episode 87: Remakeoween V | EVIL DEAD (2013)

Episodes

In our fifth Remakeoween episode we take on Evil Dead, the 2013 remake from Fede Alvarez that is not exactly a reboot and not exactly a remake. We talk about how it sits somewhere in between, discuss the attempts at homage, the increased violence, the poor acting, and the new plot involving drug addiction and metaphorical demons. We also talk about Kelso Brewing Company’s IPA.

Episode 86: Remakeoween IV | HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL (1999)

Episodes

Our Remakeoween continues with HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL (1999), a remake that attempts to capture the cheesiness of the original William Castle film by adding a Vincent Price-esque figure and some real supernatural events. We talk about Famke Janssen, Chris Kattan’s weird role, the CGI effects for The Darkness, and the fun late ’90s feel of the movie. We also discuss the new beer delivery service Hopsy and Bronx Brewery’s Summer Pale Ale with lemon.

Episode 85: Remakeoween III | NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1990)

Episodes

Remakeoween continues with our coverage of Tom Savini’s Night of the Living Dead remake, which was also re-written by George Romero. We talk about the increased gore and zombie effects, compare it to the original film, discuss Tony Todd’s role as Ben, wonder about Romero’s attempts to retcon his own series to better fit with the later Dead films, and ponder how well this film’s conclusion matches the original’s theme. Plus, we’re drinking Adirondack Brewing’s NYS Octoberfest!

Episode 84: Remakeoween II | IT (2017)

Episodes

Remakeoween continues with our 2nd remake (and we’re cheating a bit), 2017’s IT. We do a lot of comparing between this one, the original miniseries, and the novel, and we get into the positives and negatives of adapting such a long book into a relatively short film. We talk about the solid acting, the film’s childhood humor, the resemblance to ’80s films like The Goonies, the lack of adult “evil,” CGI Pennywise, and more! We’ve also got Goose Island Festbier for drinking!

Episode 83: Remakeoween I | THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE (2003)

Episodes

We start our Halloween Remakeoween series with The Texas Chainsaw Massacre from 2003 starring Jessica Biel as… a body of T&A. We talk about the film’s lack of atmosphere, its nonchalant approach to the slasher genre, the heightened presence of gore, and its bland cookie-cutter aesthetic. We’re not too kind to this one since it’s often kind of boring and we recently watched the original for our Tobe Hooper retrospective!

Episode 82: Tobe Hooper Retrospective/THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE

Episodes

On episode 82 we pay tribute to the late Tobe Hooper with The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. First we take a look at Hooper’s films, then we get into TCM itself: the lengthy scenes, the noise soundtrack, the creepy Leatherface appearances, and the mental health illness of just about everyone in the film. We also tackle Genny Grungeist Pale Ale for the beer this week.

Episode 81: BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA/Modelo Negra

Episodes

On this week’s episode, we head to BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA with Kurt Russell and Kim Cattrall. We talk about how much of a different film this is for John Carpenter, discuss the soundtrack from Carpenter and Alan Howarth, commend Russell for his unusually comedic performance, and contemplate the background of the film’s Chinese mysticism. We also drink Modelo Negra!
