Halloweenies 2

October 18th, 2017

Halloween episodes are a favorite at the “Boys and Ghouls” podcast.  For this year’s effort, we are repeating the Halloweenies format of last year.  So, in “Halloweenies 2” we will be covering a trio of spooky topics.

 

The first segment will cover the cult (or, at least, well regarded and low budget) direct-to-VHS faux-bootleg horror movie, “The WNUF Halloween Special”.  Listen as we marvel at how this 2013 indie-horror manages to be a diamond-perfect time capsule of 1987 late-night television.

 

Then, we take a trip to the happiest place on Earth, and explore the cob-webbed rooms of their long-standing dark ride, The Haunted Mansion.  Try to be brave, as we dig up the haunted history and fun facts of the house where crypt doors creak

and the tombstones quake.

 

Then, we crack the books and find, in the pages, a love letter to Halloween.  Written after feeling dissatisfied with “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown”, Ray Bradbury weaves a tale of Halloween night that felt like a classic as soon as it was published.  Along with it’s 1992 accompanying cartoon, the Boys and Ghouls duo discuss and discover what makes Ray Bradbury’s autumn nostalgia so impressive.

 

Also, we’ve been getting gifts from friends and fans, and Marshall presents them on-mic to a flabbergasted Kat.

 

Happy Halloween!
