21: My Favorite Remake (Fright Night & It: Chapter One)

This week we watched Fright Night (2011) and It: Chapter One (2017). We also talk about depictions of feminism in misogyny, Michelle’s budding love for Colin Farrell, why Meg’s notes make no sense for this movie, love for Toni Collette, love for Anton Yelchin, love for Marti Noxon and her support for the Buffy cast’s allegations, love for Bill Skarsgard, Meg’s Pennywide Halloween costume, the story behind the Pennywise costume, how It was stuck in development hell, the terror of naked ghosts, why you should never talk bad about librarians, the premiere of Pet Semetery, and more.
