Yes its that time of the year again; you know the one where we do a light spot of Trick or Treating in the early evening then afterwards maybe strip naked and howl at the moon, drink each others blood, spend the night in a haunted mansions or perhaps even commune with the spirits of the dead! And funnily enough were going to celebrate some of these activities in our film podcast with three horror specials for Halloween! The theme is a Monster Mash of sorts with each episode looking at a specific iconic monster: Ghosts, Vampires & Werewolves in where well attempt to explore a bit of the cinematic history of each monster around the world and examine two specially chosen classics of each sub-genre!
First up is the spooky world of Ghosts, perhaps the most omni-present of movie monsters these days with a rich and varied cinematic heritage across the globe. The films well be looking at represent two very different Haunted Mansion tales - the first being Robert Wises seminal horror film The Haunting, which laid out a blueprint for ghostly goings on that is followed by just about everyone to this day. The second film well be looking at is Nobuhiko Obayashis House, a popular classic over in Japan thats quite possibly the most insane film ever made!
