The Rabblecast

Halloween has come and gone. But that doesn't mean we can't have a little more fun talking about scary movies and the horror genre. But first, let us remember someone who worked in horror films that recently passed away.

James Karen(aged 94), was an American character actor of Broadway, film and television. Karen was best known for his roles in Poltergeist, The Return of the Living Dead, Invaders from Mars, and in The Pursuit of Happyness.

He appeared in commercials for Pathmark which earned his nickname "Mr. Pathmark". He was nominated for a Saturn Award for his 1985 role in The Return of the Living Dead.

We also talk about the recent release of Halloween(2018 film), starring Jamie Lee Curtis, and its success at the box office. Beware, there are SPOILERS ahead as we talk about the history of the film franchise and the ending of the current film.

We also talk about other horror icons, franchises, and current film and TV projects.

Recently, it was announced that WWE Superstar, Roman Reigns(real name, Leati Joseph AnoaŹ»i) has been diagnosed with leukemia. Previous to this announcement, the cancer had been in remission for about eleven years. Reigns appeared on an episode of Monday Night RAW to relinquish his WWE Universal Title.

We hope that Roman Reigns can overcome his illness and return to in-ring action soon.

We talk about WWE's upcoming shows, Evolution and Crown Jewel. Evolution will be the first ever all women WWE PPV(by the time this episode posted, this show will have already taken place). And Crown Jewel, a PPV that has already been mired with bad press due to the current political state of relations between Saudi Arabi and the USA.

We also bid farewell to another veteran of the wrestling world. Richard Van Slater(aged 67), better known by his ring name "Dirty" Dick Slater, was an American professional wrestler who wrestled in the 1970s, 1980s, and mid-1990s for various promotions including Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling and World Championship Wrestling (WCW).

And last but certainly not least, we talk about the recent news of a new Friday the 13th film being made by a studio with ties to, Lebron James? And Doug gives us the rundown on the new Halloween movie currently out in theaters and breaking box office records of horror films in the month of October.
