Mess with the misfits at Halloween, and pay the ultimate price; watch the wicked get punished in our Halloween Horror double feature.

THIS EPISODE: “DARK NIGHT OF THE SCARECROW” (1981) AND “CANDY CORN” (2019)

Listen on Anchor

This week, we’re looking at Halloween Horror — films that take place on or near Halloween and evoke the spirit of the season. As usual, we were each responsible for picking one never-before-seen film, and we coincidentally picked films with a lot of similarities to each other. One is a 1981 made-for-tv horror film, and the other is a recent release that takes place in the 80s and reflects the look and tone of 80s horror. So, grab your pumpkin pail full of candy, get comfortable, and settle in for a festive double feature of NIGHT OF THE SCARECROW and CANDY CORN — plus other treats.
