It Came From The Tube: Halloween Edition

30 October 2016 1:27 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Halloween is a time when regular folk allow themselves to see the world as us horror lovers do – weird and wonderful, sinister mischief with tongue in cheek under (and over) tones. They watch that scary movie they’ve been meaning to get to for the past year, string up skeletons, and parade around at office parties in the latest ironic costumes (expect tons of Trumps and Weiners this year). But for the fearful faithful, this is our workaday; we watch the films daily, display our rooms with terror trinkets, and dress up as our favourite icons at constant conventions around the globe. So what separates the actual day of Halloween from our normal routine? TV viewing, of course.

‘Tis the season when every station trots out horror programming, sometimes for weeks on end leading up to and including the big night. A lot of this is for Johnny and Jane »

The story revolves around He-Man, ‘a prince who transforms into a warrior and becomes the last hope for a magical world that has been ravaged by the sinister Skeletor.’

The film will be based on the classic Mattel toy line that was famous turned into a movie starring Dolph Lundgren in 1987. Frank Langella, Jon Cypher, Chelsea Field, Billy Barty and Courteney Cox also appeared in the almost universally panned movie from Cannon Films.
