“In order to appease the gods, the Druid priests held fire rituals. Prisoners of war, criminals, the insane, animals … were … burned alive in baskets. By observing the way they died, the Druids believed they could see omens of the future. Two thousand years later, we’ve come no further. Samhain isn’t evil spirits. It isn’t goblins, ghosts or witches. It’s the unconscious mind. We’re all afraid of the dark inside ourselves.” — Donald Pleasence as Dr. Sam Loomis
In 1978 terror took on an entirely new shape as Michael Myers was unleashed upon an unsuspecting public. Now nearly three decades later director Rob Zombie has picked up the torch first ignited by John Carpenter as his own spin on the tale is set to hit theatres on August 31st.
To celebrate Michael’s latest rampage, Dread Central is thrilled to bring to you this exclusive podcast event. Each week from now until the release of Rob Zombie’s Halloween (archive here), we’ll be speaking with a different cast member from either one of the originals or Rob’s latest chapter.
This week: Charles Cyphers, the original Sheriff Leigh Brackett!
