Finally, here’s the dance video the main crew in Step Up: All In submitted to make the show. It’s fantastic.
With my penultimate 2021 review episode, I’m looking back at some of my favorite horror movies and TV shows of the year!

This week, I catch you up on It’s All Connected 2021, the scare season scenario where every film I watch has to have a link to the previous one! For the full It’s All Connected 2021 experience go back and listen to episodes 29, 31, 33, 34 and the back half of 35.
On this week’s episode, I comb through the dark corners of Disney Plus — yes there are a few! — to tell you about some fun frights for this Halloween season! Also, I’m glad to see that Kindertrauma.com is still up and running!
You know you want some visual Alice Cooper content. Here’s his performance of “School’s Out” AND a brief interview about actually doing the show from a few years ago.
While looking up Fairuzu Balk’s filmography, I discovered that she played a vampire in a ZZ Top video! It’s a very weird and plodding song, but it’s a fun ride AND, like Bride Of Boogedy, it also features Vincent Schiavelli! I gotta get me a guitar-shaped boat now.
Do you like comics? Do you dig horror? Then you should be into at least a few of these comic-based horror movies — some of which became franchises! Did I miss anything major? Let me know in the comments!
Get into the Halloween spirit with this sampler of Neil Gaiman goodies that I think will give you a nice launchpad into his fantastic work! The best part? It’ll only take a few hours!
I also tackled five more films in It’s All Connected 2021 to keep that moving along. I finished my Jill Schoelen mini-marathon, indulged a bit on my favorite slasher franchise, watched another John Carpenter film and then got to one wacky killer animal flick!
With this week’s episode we’re back on the It’s All Connected trail. If you want to follow the threads from the beginning you can go back and listen to episodes 29, 31 and 33! This batch turned out to be a real wild ride through late 80s/early 90s horror! Oh, and here’s one more connection I forgot to mention: Bruce Glover is in both Night Of The Scarecrow and one of the movies-within-a-movie in Popcorn! Also, it’s Donald Pleasance in Prince Of Darkness, not Sutherland.
If you’re curious about my earlier thoughts on some of these movies, you can check out my reviews of The Stepfather, Leatherface and Prince Of Darkness. During the episode, I also mentioned past installments like 20 – Excellent 80s Disc 12 (Scarecrows) and 24 – Weird Canadian Horror (Alan Ormsby).
