Tim Burton is anthropomorphized Halloween. You know it. We know it... So this month we're talking over his 1999 adaptation of Washington Irving's classic short story. Join us if you dare!

(Film begins at 15:14.)

As always, we'd like to thank Laura Hammond of the webcomic XP for our show's art, Bensound.com for our outro music, everyone who contributed to the production of Sleepy Hollow, and you the listener for sticking with us!

Just be glad Adam forgot to watch Marvel's Inhumans... because there could easily be another hour of discussion about that raging garbage fire alone.

Under the assumption that things would get all ghouls and goblins-style spooky, the boys set off to talk about Halloween frights... but discover that real life is far spookier than fiction. Along the way they discuss the merits of jack-o-lanterns, pit the ghost of John Belushi against ghost-like Bill Murray, refuse to fall, avoid primates, embrace snakes, and try not to be so vane!

  • Worst ways to fall! (32:30)
  • Snaaaaaaaaaaakes! (38:14)
  • Hidden tracks! (43:45)
  • Mirror maidens! (45:05)
  • Show artist Dracula! (55:17)
