Halloween (2018) • TCS-016

10/24/2018
More
It's finally here! A brand new Halloween film ... and more importantly - a brand new John Carpenter score! The Dudes review David Gordon Green's Halloween (the direct sequel to John Carpenter's Halloween that has absolutely nothing to do with Rob Zombie's Halloween), play Score the Score, and somehow find a way to connect The Lego Batman Movie to Michael Myers and Laurie Strode. PLUS Chris pairs this stylish slasher with a dark and boozy beer doubles down on the sweetness ...and the bite.
