'It's Coming From Inside the House!': Watch 'Halloween III: Season of the Witch' With MoPOP
Throughout the month of May, It's Coming from Inside the House!, the Museum of Pop Culture's horror film watchalong, is expanding its list of 100 Horror Films To See Before You Die. Working with our horror community we'll dig back into the list, see what we missed, and explore how we can start the work of updating the list every year to include the best the horror genre has wrought from the depths of darkness.
Each week we'll have a new guest pick a film to watch that they feel deserves a spot on the list as it expands, and they'll join the watchalong to make the case for its inclusion.
This week, MoPOP Manager of Public Engagement Robert Rutherford is joined by guest Caleb Braaten, founder of Sacred Bones Records, an incredible record label that has released horror soundtracks from luminaries like Ennio Morricone and John Carpenter. Caleb chose this week’s selection, the cult classic Halloween III: Season of the Witch, an oddly (and controversially) Michael Myers-free entry in the Halloween franchise that instead explores wicked corporations and witchcraft.
Here are a handful of program elements that you can expect to see this Friday night:
Pre-film introduction with Robert Rutherford, MoPOP's Manager of Public Engagement, and special guest Caleb Braaten of Sacred Bones Records
Cheap-as-heck quarantine cosplay
Cocktails, mocktails, and beer pairing recommendations
Chat with the hosts and other fans during the film
Post-film discussion on the film's enduring influence on the genre
If you happen to own a copy of the film, get it queued up at 7 p.m. PT this Friday! Otherwise, here's where you can find Halloween III: Season of the Witch online:
