On the Spoiler Special podcast, Slate critics discuss movies, the occasional TV show, and, once in a blue moon, another podcast, in full spoiler-filled detail. In this week’s episode, Brow Beat editor Sam Adams discusses Halloween, the sequel to the 1978 slasher classic. What do they make of the feminist undertones of the movie? Why didn’t Laurie just booby-trap her house Home Alone–style? Do they think Michael will come back a 12th time?
Listen to them discuss below. You can also check out past Spoiler Specials, and you can subscribe to the podcast on Apple Podcasts. Note: As the title indicates, each installment contains spoilers galore.
