It’s a heavy metal Halloween with this headbanging horror double feature! We review Trick or Treat (1986) in which a bullied metalhead resurrects his dead rock hero by playing the rocker’s last record backwards. Then it’s on to The Devil’s Candy (2015) in which a hard rockin’ dad is possessed by evil forces to paint some truly metal artwork… but he’s not the only one being influenced by the dark lord.
And as always, we wrap this episode up by figuring out how these two movies could be combined into one CINEMATIC UNIVERSE!
Whoever wins… the viewer loses. Four massive franchises come together as some of horror’s most iconic movie monsters throw down in two less than iconic showdown movies. We kick off the Halloween season with AVP: Alien vs. Predator and Freddy vs. Jason, the double feature we’ve been waiting to do since this podcast’s conception.
