Halloween (1978) The Movies Within the Movie – Episode 2

Every October, it’s a tradition to watch the original John Carpenter’s Halloween, but what about the horror movies the characters are watching in Halloween? It’s a familiar trope, the movie within the movie, something to compliment what’s actually happening in the film. It could be a tribute to the movies the director grew up, but could there be more of a reason why these movies are on the TV? Is there a reason why Carpenter chose The Thing (1951), Forbidden Planet, and Night of the Living Dead specifically, or, was it all at random? That’s what I’m investigating today!

    The AVGN Halloween 2022 will probably be featuring Zombies Ate My Neighbors.
