It’s Halloween time again, but times have changed and so must we. Thanks to the pandemic, Halloween will look a little different this year, and so does our Halloween episode. We have done it remotely, as is the case with most things in 2020… but that does not stop us from having fun. This time we discuss and celebrate the horror movies 1978, the year the John Carpenter’s Halloween came out. It was quite a year for the genre. Plus, throughout the conversation we talk about some of the ways you can enjoy Halloween while still staying safe.
So, pull up some candy corn and join us as we celebrate our favorite holiday. And don’t forget to get yourself a Monster Men shirt, hoodie or mug at our TeePublic store. Go to http://tee.pub/lic/S9-0-iRSDP8 and don’t forget to post a pic and tag us once you have your swag.
In this knee-slapper of an episode, the Monster Men take the center square for the win. What better way to start Horrortober than a trip back to that magical era where every star had their own variety show? And what better show to unearth than the Paul Lynde Halloween Special from 1976? It’s a cavalcade of stars surrounding the master comic who looked like someone had a gun to his head from start to finish. The jokes may fall flatter than Jack and Hunter’s ass cheeks, but the unintentional humor is hysterical. Come join Paul and his witchy friends as they’re joined by the likes of Florence Henderson, Betty White, Pinky Tuscadero, Tim Conway and…wait for it…KISS (who perform 3 songs because we guess the writers ran out of corny jokes)!
It’s that time of year again, monster boys and girls. Horrortober is upon us, and who doesn’t want to fill their days and nights with a little blood and guts, screams and scares? Welcome to the fourth annual Monster Men Halloween movie curation event, thanks to the killer game book, 31 Days of Terror. Author Steve Hutchison has done it again, filling the pages with new categories and a host of movies to tickle your horror bone.
Looking for something new to watch or revisit a lost classic? Just roll the dice and follow the book as it takes you down a path of darkness and delight. Jack and Hunter pony up to the craps – we mean, 31 Days of Terror table – and get to rolling. What follows is an unexpected viewing list, curated by the book and the fickle finger of fate. Play and watch along, or grab a copy of the book and set your own viewing list that will take you all throughout Horrortober and deep into Halloween night.

It’s Halloween season again and that means it’s time to watch a lot of horror movies. A great way to compile a list is to use 31 Days of Terror, a great book that turns compiling a watch list into a game. Using dice, we roll a 31-day list of movies for you to watch all October long. We had a blast, as we always do.
The book consists of movies from all over the horror map. New movies, old movies, well known movies and some forgotten gems. You’re sure to have a blast creating your list and discover some new films along the way. Let us know what you watch this Horrortober. 31 Days of Terror, Chapter 3.
