Movie Matters #2 - Halloween special

All Hallows' Eve descends on the all-new Movie Matters podcast as co-hosts Lee Howard and Michael Mackenzie and special guest Rich Birkett of the Dedicated To Gamers podcast discuss three spooky seasonal treats: The House of the Devil, Trick 'r Treat and The Exorcist. We also recommend five particularly impressive Blu-ray horror releases.

The music sampled in this episode is from Suspiria (Goblin), The House of the Devil (Jeff Grace), Trick 'r Treat (Douglas Pipes), The Exorcist (Mike Oldfield - Tubular Bells), Halloween (John Carpenter) and The Descent (David Julyan). Special thanks to David Mackenzie for audio support.


  1. Listened to both episodes on headphones today whilst at work.
    Nice job!
    Would love to get involved somehow.
    I could talk about Italian Horror for hours.

  2. Hey Dan, many thanks for the kind words. We're definitely up for having a variety of guests join us, so it would be great to have you on for an episode (or more) at some point. :)

  3. Hey guys! I'm finally getting around to commenting on the podcast.

    Regarding 'The Exorcist' - The themes of sacrifice, especially the allegorical nature of Karras' sacrifice, work extremely well on a secular level as well as on a religious one.
