When someone tells you they haven’t seen the original Halloween, alarms should go off in your head. It’s an absolute classic, the slasher that started it all, and anyone worth their salt should see it. For Kristin and husband/editor Will, the alarms sounded loud and clear when Wil said he’d never seen it. So we watched it! And to our surprise he actually wound up really liking it.

The timing couldn’t have been more perfect either. With the new Halloween coming out, it was a perfect pairing of movies. Even better is that the new one just kind of snips away every sequel that was made after the original, making a tight, two film story. So Wil didn’t miss anything by not having seen the sequels.

So in this episode we chat about both the original, and this fresh new sequel. How do they compare? Which did we like better? Find out the answers on today’s grating synth-accompanied episode of So…I’m Watching This Show!
