What better way to celebrate Thanksgiving then to listen to a pseduo-podcast episode about a series of horror movies set on Halloween?
Naturally, this episode was recorded back in October. A number of work and personal life commitments made the editing progress a long, complicated one, which is why this is up nearly a month late. It also means we missed an episode in our "two episodes a month" schedule I self-imposed on myself. It's not a horribly big deal since, compared to last year, the Bangers n' Mash Show has managed to have a semi-regular release schedule. Still, it's a bit of a bummer knowing we'll be an episode short for 2013. Anyway, yes, we discuss the "Halloween" series, re-purposing the reviews I wrote for this years Halloween Horror-fest Blog-a-thon as notes. But you probably guessed that already.
Secondly, YouTube came down on this one for music copyright. I figured a line of dialogue from a film would be safe. Apparently not. That's why there's a minute of silence before we discuss Rob Zombie's remake. YouTube also tried to edit out "Mr. Sandman" from the end there but did a half-ass job, which is why the sound quality for that very final segment is so shitty. From now on, I'll just avoid using copyrighted music. I probably should have figured this out already.
IN OTHER NEWS: I know updates are always sporadic, I mean more so then usual, during the last two months of the year. That's what Catch-Up Week was designed to counteract. Speaking of which, you probably thought Catch-Up Week was over, right? Nope. There's one more film I'm hoping to review and release before the end of the month, stretching a single week to nearly three. Similarly, another Bangers n' Mash episode should be out before the start of December. I'm not promising anything, but December is probably going to be a very busy month for Film Thoughts. Hopefully. STAY TUNED!
