Welcome to The Witching Hour! Collider’s horror podcast, co-created and co-hosted by Horror Editor Haleigh Foutch and Senior Editorial Producer Perri Nemiroff. This week, it’s all about horror maestro John Carpenter and revisiting five of his essential films in celebration of the new Halloween movie. We don’t talk about Halloween in this episode (though you can check out our full spoiler review of the new sequel here), instead we dive into five of our other favorites from Carpenter’s killer resume: Big Trouble in Little China, The Thing, The Fog, Christine, They Live. We also talk about which of Carpenter’s films is most primed for a remake and why.
And we’ve got a fun giveaway this week! If you saw Mandy, you know you need to get your hands on a Blu-ray, and if you haven’t seen Mandy then you definitely need to get your hands on a Blu-ray. Lucky for you, we’re doing a giveaway! Just post a tweet with #ColliderWitchingHour and #Mandy, and you’ll be entered to win!
