Halloween 2017: Siblings & Scares Double Feature – Mom’S Got A Date With A Vampire and Hocus Pocus

  • DailyDead
[To get you into the spooky spirit, the Daily Dead team is spotlighting double features that we think would be fun to watch this Halloween season. Check here for more double feature recommendations and other Halloween 2017 coverage.]

There’s nothing quite like an outside threat to bring a family together, especially when that threat is of the undead variety. Siblings may not always get along, but when your sister’s soul is sought by a coven of witches, or when your mom is eyed as an eternal bride by a coffin-dwelling creep, it’s time to take those Sister Sledge lyrics to heart and become a family that can overcome anything—including wicked spells and sharp fangs. Set on respective fateful nights where the future of a homestead hangs in the balance and its up to siblings to save it, Mom’s Got a Date with a Vampire and Hocus Pocus are family-friendly films that make for a great double feature during the Halloween season.

Perhaps the less-known of the two films, Mom’s Got a Date with a Vampire will likely ring a nostalgic bell for

Winners of Inaugural Atx-Black List Script Competition Announced (Exclusive)
Atx and The Black List partnered with Bad Robot, Carlton Cuse Productions, FX, Sony and USA Network on a new writing program, designed to find TV writers for staffing consideration across participating networks, studios and production companies.

The contest, which was announced this January, drew over 1,000 applicants. 16 winning scribes have been selected.

To be considered, writers had to submit their original pilots to The Black List’s website. The strongest pieces — both half-hour and hourlong content — were shared with studios, networks and production companies that were tasked with choosing writers with whom they’d like to work.

This year marks the inaugural contest for the Austin-based television festival, which kicks off today.

Dancing With the Stars Switch-Up: Who Were the Best and Worst New Couples?
A few short weeks from now, when Paige VanZant or Wanyá Morris or Nyle Dimarco hoist that Mirrorball trophy in the air, Monday’s Switch-Up edition of Dancing With the Stars likely won’t be one of the Season 22 memories flashing before their eyes.

Although the traditional partner swap has worked wonders in past seasons, most of Monday’s mixed-up duos suffered from lack of chemistry, communication or — in a few disconcerting cases — proper choreography.

Mfr's Monday Night Wrestling Column: Shane O'Mac Is Back! Mania Looks Whack!

  • LRM Online
So, as you might have noticed, I've missed a couple of weeks. True to form, since I mentioned my on-again/off-again love/hate relationship with pro wrestling in my first column, I couldn't even work up enough inspiration to follow up my initial column on the subject. I was going to write about it every Wednesday night throughout the Road to WrestleMania, and my interest wasn't even sustained long enough to make it to Week 2. 

Until tonight...

I caught some of last night's WWE Fastlane pay-per-view, and I had some interest in how Raw would follow things up. Still, I was just going to wait until my wife went to sleep (we're currently watching HBO's The Wire. Yes, I know. We're very, very behind), then skim through Raw on my DVR. But then I suddenly got a series of texts from one of my best friends that made me have

Gotham, Episode 1.18, “Everyone Has A Cobblepot” pits Gordon against the corrupt Gcpd

Gotham Season 1, Episode 18: ‘Everyone Has A Cobblepot’

Written by Megan Mostyn-Brown

Directed by Bill Eagles

Aired Mondays at 8pm (Et) on Fox

This week’s episode of Gotham follows up “Red Hood” just after Alfred’s wounding, which brings a reunion between Gordon and Bruce. But instead of progressing Bruce’s story, this episode prolongs their separation again for another week so that Gordon can make some genuine headway in establishing some order within the Gcpd. This has been an ongoing process for Gordon in making a change to the corrupt system, and his effect on it has been gradual, as every time Gordon thinks he has made a significant achievement, he finds that he has only cured a symptom and not the cause. This has been a beat that Gotham has repeated a few times during this second half of the season, and it’s almost to the point of being overly repetitive,

Is it possible? Could Anna really have pushed Mr. Green to his death? The witness to his murder certainly didn’t hesitate to pick her out of the line-up, but I remain unconvinced. Turning Anna into a killer seems like a shark over which even Downton wouldn’t dare to jump.

Castle season 6 episode 7 review: Like Father, Like Daughter

Review Laura Akers 9 Nov 2013 - 13:51

Castle gets weirdly Freudian this week. Here's Laura's review...

This review contains spoilers.

6.7 Like Father, Like Daughter

We’ve been building toward this week’s episode for a while now.

It’s not just a matter of the recent spat between Castle and Alexis over the ubiquitous Pi which then led to Alexis telling her dad to give her some space. Nor Alexis’s insistence that she’s ready to move out of the familial home into one of her own (well, with Pi, that is). Like Father, Like Daughter also dealt with the hinted-at coolness between Beckett and Alexis, a recurrent theme in series 4 when Beckett was shot, making the teenager forcefully aware of the danger her father’s relationship with the detective puts him in.

In this week’s episode, Alexis is all but forced to go to her father for assistance

Castle season 6 episode 6 review: Get A Clue

Review Laura Akers 4 Nov 2013 - 06:58

Maturity and adulthood are the themes of this week's Castle. Here's Laura's review of Get A Clue...

This review contains spoilers.

6.6 Get a Clue

In last week’s episode, we saw the usual tension between Castle’s far-flung imagination and Beckett’s no-nonsense explanation. In most episodes, the truth is either somewhere in the middle between Castle’s theory of the crime and Beckett’s (usually favoring Beckett’s version) or clearly unrelated to both. In the first case, this allows Castle to maintain his position as crazy narrative smith without invalidating Beckett’s more pedestrian explanation (or vice versa). In the latter, both are clearly wrong, meaning neither is actually right, which likewise maintains the balancing act between two very strong characters.

What almost never happens is that Castle pretty much nails it out of the gate. Well, okay, at first he says

'Castle' recap: Indiana Jones and the Da Vinci national treasure code in 'Get a Clue'

Could this be Castle's favorite case ever? The "Get a Clue" episode of "Castle" brings shades of "Indiana Jones," "The Da Vinci Code" and "National Treasure" to a New York murder. Is there a buried treasure? A vast conspiracy?

Find out in this recap.

Discord in the house of Pi

But before Castle can have his treasure-hunting fun, he has to deal with the unpleasantness of his daughter and her fruitarian beau.

Alexis and Pi have moved in together and are happily living the Bohemian lifestyle, dumpster-diving for furniture and chasing bees for profit. Of course, Castle isn't too happy about the fact that his daughter has moved in with an idiot.

Too bad for Castle that this is half about Alexis feeling the need to punish her dad for diving into an engagement with Beckett. Because Castle didn't wholeheartedly approve of Pi (and seriously, who would?), Alexis has now

Castle Recap: Half-Dimes Show
This week’s episode of Castle wasn’t an invaluable bag of half-dimes, but it wasn’t a sack of coal either.

I open with that distinction because it seems as if all-day Monday, ever since the episode aired in Canada, I was tweeted at about how “crappy,” “Jump the Shark”-caliber and “ham-handed” this week’s episode would be. As such, despite the best efforts, a person goes into a viewing experience with certain (in this case, negative) expectations.
