Happy, Happy Halloween

This week’s Someone Else’s Movie is a very special holiday episode, because I am led to understand that people enjoy very special holiday episodes and Halloween is the very specialest holiday of them all, being  the only one with chocolate-covered marshmallow pumpkins.

My guest this week is Steven Hoban, a veteran producer of Canadian horror films whose latest picture, A Christmas Horror Story, marks his first co-directorial venture as well. He chose The Cabin in the Woods, Drew Goddard and Joss Whedon’s marvelous deconstruction of ’80s horror iconography, and the result is a reasonably wide-ranging conversation. I think it’s worth a listen.

You know what to do: Seek it out on iTunes or Stitcher, or go straight to the source. And keep a couple of pieces of candy nearby. It’s that kind of week.
