We're talking about the movies YOU grew up with!

099 – Forgotten Flix: The Funhouse (1981)

099-IMAGEIn this episode of The Forgotten Flix Podcast, Joel and Jason are talking about The Funhouse  from 1981!

And we’re joined by the one, the only, Mr. Dave Becker, master cinephile and prolific film reviewer over at his fantastic movie site!

We’re going to be chatting about the movie Tobe Hooper made the year before Spielberg’s his classic ghost story, Poltergeist, came out. It’s also the first time both Joel and Jason have seen this particular horror film.

So, how will your intrepid hosts feel about this one? Will they want to keep it out a few extra nights and pay the late fees to their local video store? Or will they want to return it the same day, not even bothering to rewind it?

You’ll have to listen to find out!
