Halloween (1978)

Episode 12 of How to Survive sees us talking about John Carpenter's Halloween (1978).

This is our annual Halloween Special! 

The movie is absolutely iconic for its key elements - many of which have now become horror movie tropes.

Certainly a product of its time, but a fantastic film to discuss - especially when considering how to survive about the original horror movie slasher: Michael Myers.

We talk about all the nonsensical actions of a criminal psychologist; what would constitute an 'appropriate' reaction to seeing a masked ghoul in your neighbour's garden; and the most important question of all: Who is teaching catatonic psychopaths how to drive?

All of which leads to one big question:

How would you survive?

Whatever happens, one thing's for sure... butter ruins clothes!

Another classic film solved by the best movie podcast in the world.
