It’s pretty in depth and well researched, and are fair to both good and bad movies. However the one guy is a whining maggot no matter how good the film. Unless he’s a director or writer he really needs to get a grip. The other guys are far more observational and subjective. They could host a...Read full review »

The Rob Zombie remake was amazing to me. The killing scenes are perfect for understanding how evil and heartless Michael is.

I like this podcast not horror movies

You guys!!!! Seriously?!?! Kylie Richards?? No, her name is Kyle Richards & she was in the original..”she married a Hilton”. NO! Her sister (Kathy) is married to a Hilton. Get the facts straight before putting the information out there. Also, talking about the hot doctor & hot nurse..I...Read full review »

You guys should update it with Halloween 2018 and then the two later released sequels!
Bserg23 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/23/21
These are my favorite movie series ever and I love to hear different opinions and have them depicted. Now, please can you review and critic the 2018 version? Keep this series going as Carpenter and Blumhouse make new ones!!!

Anyone getting Halloween vibes? Because I am I haven’t seen the movie yet but I love the spooky music ;)
Mia carly via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/18/20
I loved them all but you need to do another one for the 2018 one!!!

In Halloween II, Micheal didn’t randomly follow Karen. Actually, he didn’t follow her at all. A bulletin was released over the radio stating where the victim (alluding to Laurie) had been taken. Michael heard this bulletin from a random passerby who was carrying and listening to the radio. This...Read full review »

The hosts are fun though one of them knows nothing about Halloween and has never heard of the franchise. I enjoy it though there is a lot of bashing of the films. Case in Point Halloween I & II are released in 1978 and 1981. How ever a couple of the hosts attack all aspects. It’s tough to...Read full review »

Just like with their retrospective podcast these guys did for Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street, the Halloween version is not very good. Most of their commentary feels self-aggrandizing and poorly researched. The host are not fans of most horror movie franchises and it shows. They...Read full review »
GrabMyBoomstick via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/17/20
I know I’m late to the show but I just found this and started listening. Hilarious! You guys have said all the things I was subconsciously thinking and feeling which makes it that much more funny. I am literally LOL at work and cannot stop smiling because I know I’m about to laugh again. Great...Read full review »

This podcast isn’t terrible. While I definitely enjoyed it, I feel like they could have and should have done more research.
MickeyS92 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/09/19
I love what these guys do on the podcasts but some of the things they talk about make no sense. EX - Halloween II - how did Michael know Laurie was in the hospital and why did he follow the nurse there.... I don’t think any of these guys watched the scene where he bumps into the kid listening to...Read full review »

Felt there wasn’t a lot of research into the actual films given their comments.
The_Doc99 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/09/18
Ive been listening to Now Playing and podcasts in general for over 12 years and the NP team just brings it with every episode. Funny, informative, concise and clever- whether you agree with their review of a particular film isnt really the point-its that they engage and entertain you and maybe...Read full review »
digitdeeper via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/14/18
You guys are very well spoken and damn entertaining. But I think you come across pretentious at times. You need to try making films and you’ll see the difficulties in doing so. I’m not saying you can’t criticise a film but maybe be a little more respectful.
Stebob1984 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/12/18
How can you be the host of a podcast that you have never even seen the films? I do think they are all funny and that’s why the 2 stars come from. If you want a great Halloween podcast from fans and folks who actually know about the series listen to Halloweenies.
FightHistorian via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/16/18
Are you guys going to do a podcast about the new Halloween (Blumhouse) before and after it comes out?
Dcmay522 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/26/18
Would recommend to any Halloween fan. It’s cool to hear these films analysed and you guys make some interesting points
theflashsawyer via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/25/18
Why go on and on about how great this podcast is? It will delay you listening to it. Just fantastic and a must for any ‘Halloween’ series fan. Listen to them ALL. GREAT JOB, gentlemen!
podcastjunkie64 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/26/17
So far I've listened to their reviews of the Friday the 13th films, Halloween films and the Nightmare On Elm Street films and I've enjoyed them all. The only reason I didn't give this podcast a 5 star is because of Stuart.... he seems to piss and moan about every movie they review! I...Read full review »

Wonderful movie podcast for anyone who loves movies, especially horror. The guys have great rapport and the show is very professionall produced. I love the intros/outros they do for each series which include clips from the movies and the bloopers at the end. My all time favorite movie podcast!
thenothingman via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/04/12
I found these movie review podcasts 3 years ago because of their "Halloween" movie retrospective series. I enjoyed every minute of them and have listened to them again every October. I have now listened to most everything they have done and I highly recommend them.Read full review »

Enjoyed listening to the different opinions on a series near and dear to my heart. Off to check out some of your other movie retrospectives.
Wings1295 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/22/11
This was the first retrospective series I heard you guys do and it did not disappoint!

I absolutely can NOT get enough of you guys! You guys are awesome! The way you discuss the movies is how anyone of us would discuss movies and that makes it less Roger Ebert, though the man is awesome, and more talking with friends. You guys make every podcast entertaining and hilarious and you...Read full review »

This team are insightful and entertaining. Great work, particularly the bizarre mess known as Halloween 3 Season of the Witch.
Kharris127 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/04/11
I like the show. You guys are good. I only wish u would make these while your watching said movie. That would be cool we could watch together. Pertaining to Halloween 2 original. You guys were wondering how Michael knew Laurie was in the hospital. Well if you watch it he is walking across the...Read full review »

For better or worst, depending on your point of view, this podcast takes you on a trip down memory lane. Its the conversations you want to have after watching a film. Funny, informative and flat out entertaining!
rocknessmonster. via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/13/10
These guys rule! They're informative, fun and always a blast to listen to. If you're a thirtysomething like me, then you'll always see where these guys are coming from. If you like film and you love talking film, then you'll love any (and I mean any) of the now playing podcasts!Read full review »

Until listening to these incredibly interesting podcasts, I never knew that more than two Halloween movies had been produced.
