Episode 073: Idle Hands (1999)

Genre Exposure: A Film Podcast

Oct 18 2023 • 1 hr 43 mins

In this episode, we continue our October celebration with more films set on or around Halloween. This time Dustin's pick takes us to the end of the 90s for Rodman Flender's cult horror comedy Idle Hands. Dustin finds it hard to struggle against his love for the movie and trying to give anything close to an objective take. Meanwhile, Jason offers a more grounded view praising where the film succeeds, but questioning some of its stumbling moments. This leads us to briefly discuss the idea of pet movies: the films you can't help but love even despite their flaws. And so much more!
