The Breakdown of 'Halloween', 'Bad Times at El Royale', '22 July' and 'The Kindergarten Teacher'

We are reviewing one of the most anticipated movies of the year and maybe even of the last several years in the John Carpenter endorsed sequel in Halloween. We also got some movies that have festival buzz in Paul Greengrass's latest film based on a horrific tragedy in 22 July and as well, a movie about a very disturbed women obsessed with the poetic skills of her 5 year old student in The Kindergarten Teacher. We also review Drew Goddard's latest in stylish thriller Bad Times at the El Royale. After the movie reviews, we discuss if the perception of horror has changed with its recent box office and critical success over the past few years. As always if you love the show then please spread the word to other big movie fans.

Reminder that you can now subscribe either to The Movie Breakdown feed (a subscription link is at the top right hand of this site) or on iTunes (if you enjoy the show, please help us by giving us a five star review).

No outline. For some reason, the audio player used on our host site changes the length (so the time stamps changes as well) each time it plays. I have no idea how a recorded audio file can suddenly be longer or shorter, yet that is the issue. If you have any idea how to resolve this several year problem then please let us know.
