Boys and girls of every age, wouldn't you like to see something strange? Come with us and you will see, this our 'cast for Halloween! In our very special Halloween episode of the Play This! Podcast, we run down some of our favorite scary, creepy, and strange movies and games. Need some Halloween tunes? Our collaborative Halloween playlist is just the thing.
As a special treat, we recorded video of this week's episode. It's not the entire podcast (we had to trim it down a bit), but you'll get a peek inside the recording room. Part one of the video is above, you'll find part 2 at the end of this post.
Links from this week's episode:
- Need some tunes for the holiday? Our TechHive Halloween Playlist (Spotify link) is yours for the streaming!
- It wouldn't be Halloween without a viewing of the classic Beetlejuice.
- Get some friends together before you watch Rocky Horror Picture Show, or better yet, find a showing at a local theater.
- The new season of The Walking Dead is on, but you should catch up first on Netflix. And check out the game, which is better than the TV show.
- It's not scary so much as weird and creepy, but check out Let the Right One In on Netflix.
- Two of our favorite movies this year are Tucker & Dale vs. Evil and Cabin in the Woods, both of which are gory, funny, sideways takes on the standard Halloween formula. For more gore and humor, check out Zombieland and Slither.
- Carlos wants you to check out this video collection of creepy game glitches.
- Halloween games! Amnesia will freak you out. Don't trust the screenshots, Atom Zombie Smasher is better than it looks. Slenderman is so spooky it has become something of a meme. Indie adventure game Which is full of, as Carlos puts it, "messed up stuff."
