Contra Zoom Pod Episode 257: Halloween at 45 Years

On October 17th, 1978, John Carpenter released his third feature film, ⁠Halloween⁠, for only $300,000. It went on to be a massive box office hit and spawned a franchise that has produced 13 films (so far). Celebrating the movie’s enduring legacy, we’re joined by our resident Halloween super-fan Brodie Cotnam to commemorate 45 years of Michael Myers and Laurie Strode.

Check out this ⁠handy guide⁠ to understand how the Halloween franchise works.
