The Cinephile Hissy Fit Podcast Circles Back to Halloween Kills

Let’s be honest. This is a website and an audience of doers and completionists. Do you ever create or attempt something and never finish it? We’re betting the answer is yes. Well, it happens to the Cinephile Hissy Fit podcast too, sponsored and supported by the Ruminations Radio Network. Here’s the real question. How long have you let that unfinished thing sit? A week? A month? A year? Longer than a year? That’s the true measure of regret.

For their 84th episode, two butchered film critics, holy rollin’ dads, and rubber-masked school teachers Will Johnson and Don Shanahan blow the dust off a long lost episode for 2021’s Halloween Kills on the heels of its rumored franchise conclusion. They recorded this a year ago but never found the right time to drop it. A year now seems like a long enough wait. With an updated intro including regular guest Cati Glidewell of The Blonde in Front, enjoy our podcast!
