As 31 Days of Horror draws to a close, we discuss “Hell Fest” — plus, a look at the new film “Dashcam” and Zombie’s take on “The Munsters”.
ABOUT THIS EPISODE (142):
We begin the episode, as always, discussing the latest and greatest horror news.
The Munsters is one of the most beloved sitcom families in television history. The news that Rob Zombie was going to make a reboot was a little worrisome. Zombie is clearly a fan of horror, but he also takes things to the extreme in the worst ways possible. We talk about the latest photo from the set of the movie and wonder why everyone looks so upset.
Then it’s on to our featured review.
Dashcam (not to be confused with DASHCAM) is a thriller about a video editor that stumbles upon a possible government conspiracy. It is atmospheric, engaging, and boasts a strong lead performance. So why are we so confused about the movie? We also try to figure out if there is a right way to handle the pandemic in film.
Finally, we get to our main attraction.
Hell Fest seems like it would be the perfect movie for the spook season. A slasher set at a traveling Halloween carnival, the movie follows a bunch of friends hanging out on Halloween. What happens next should be obvious, except it absolutely isn’t. How important is killing people in the right order in a slasher? Is there such a thing as too annoying?
