Hello, Plotaholics! The season of the witch is nearly upon us, and we have our most interactive event planned so far! The Plotaholics are proud to present, Listeners’ Halloween…
Our final #WillSmithTember film, I Am Legend, will carry us straight into the festivities. You, our beloved listeners, will be choosing the first three October films from a set of curated horror sub-genre lists.
As of this writing, voting for the focus of our October 7th show is LIVE. Voting will close at 6:00 PM on Tuesday, September 17, at which point we will open voting for the second film.
This first slate of films is from our Demons/ Ghosts/ Haunted Houses list. We thought we would offer you folks a quick overview of the five films up for voting this week.
Darkness Falls (2003)
Darkness Falls is about the ghost of a woman who was once beloved by a town’s children. They would give her their teeth when they fell out, and she would give them money. A real-life tooth fairy! But then she was lynched by a mob and started haunting the town that once loved her. SpoooOOoooOOOky!
Evil Dead (1981)
Evil Dead is your basic story of vacationing college students who find an audio tape with the power to summon evil spirits. The friends get possessed and gory gory mayhem follows.
There is some debate about which of these films we will review if this one wins, but my vote (Shane) is for the original.
The Exorcist (1973)
The Exorcist is one of the most straight-forward horror movies ever made. A young girl gets possessed by an evil entity. Her mom seeks help from two priests. Scary shit happens (Green Vomit!).
The Haunting (1999)
Before Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Liam Neeson, Lili Taylor and Owen Wilson starred in this adaptation of the Shirley Jackson novel by the same name. Classic haunted house story!
A family lives in a house and one night everything goes to shit. Ya’ll got demons, Carol Anne! Don’t go to the TV! Robbie! Stop looking at the clown doll! Turns out there is an entrance to another dimension! How exciting!
So there you have it! Take a moment and cast your vote for the movie you’d like to hear featured on The Plotaholics Podcast during the first week of October.
