Happy Halloween! We're slashing #OperationUniversalHorror (don't worry, it'll be back in a sequel) to bring you this special episode. We knew we were going to show Claire John Carpenter's Halloween this year, we just didn't know it would be part of a Joe Bob Briggs' Last Drive-In #HalloweenHootenany on Shudder. We talk a bit about the #MutantFam, why slashers slash, and the concept of feminism.

This week, #OperationUniversalHorror continues with Tod Browning's Dracula, starring the incomparable Bela Lugosi. We get into the great performances, including Dwight Frye's phenomenal performance as Renfield. Plus, there's a great conversation about how art can facilitate conversations about pressing social issues. Through that, we explore the depiction of mental health and the treatment of patients on film.

This week, #OperationUniversalHorror continues with James Whale's Bride of Frankenstein. We were very excited to get back to the Frankenstein movies and this one didn't disappoint! We continue our conversation on the depiction of women and also get into the Hays Code and the implementation of the Production Code Administration. We talk about how that leads to the modern-day MPAA and how an MPAA rating can impact both the business and artistic aspects of filmmaking.

This week, #OperationUniversalHorror continues with James Whale's The Invisible Man. To be honest, this one was a bit of a miss overall for us. Claude Rains' maniacal performance was fantastic and the special effects were a lot of fun to pick apart, but the movie didn't quite land for a couple of reasons. For example, Danielle and Claire dig into the lack of well-written roles for women.
