Evil Eye Episode 10: The Halloween Special featuring NIGHT OF THE DEMONS (1988)

Happy Halloween, children of the night! If there is a single most goth day of the year, Halloween is surely it. In this special themed episode of the Evil Eye podcast, Rob and Samm explore one of the most iconic Halloween-set horror films, Kevin Tenney’s Night of the Demons (1988), about a group of degenerate lipstick-wearing high schoolers who throw a Halloween party in a haunted funeral parlor. They ponder the important questions of our age, such as whether or not Angela’s character really goth or just wearing a Halloween costume? Plus they discuss the film’s two sequels (for better or worse) and share their favorite Halloween movies and music.

The Evil Eye is a podcast about goth movies. What exactly is a goth movie? Writers Samm Deighan and Robert Skvarla are two old goths determined to answer that age old question by exploring various genres including horror, melodrama, and film noir. Each episode will dissect a film that fits the goth aesthetic and explore the music and culture in the year that film was released.
