MonsterKids - Ernie Magnotta


In the premiere episode of MonsterKids, J. Michael Roddy talks all things Halloween with author/Filmmaker Ernie Magnotta. Ernie's new book Halloween - The Changing Shape of an Iconic Series. The new book meticulously details exactly what made John Carpenter's Halloween the enduring classic that it is today. He then discusses how the sequels strayed further and further away from writer/director/composer John Carpenter’s original vision until they became something almost entirely different.

The author goes into detail about all aspects of the series including story, characters, acting, suspense/scares, cinematography, direction/composition, music, Michael Myers’ ever-changing mask and much, much more!
