Glad to have the focus back on Friday the 13th. This podcast has me wanting to watch these episodes again. Jim Henshaw had some interesting contributions to make; I hope he can return to talk about the other stories he wrote/contributed to (I’d really like to hear his opinion of how Badge of Honor turned out). Coming from a background in anthropology, I initially approached Voodoo Mambo (which I hadn’t seen on original broadcast) with a little apprehension. Voodoo is not usually treated with much cultural respect. So I was pleasantly surprised by its portrayal. But I was even more surprised when Henshaw mentioned them actually having consultants reviewing the story. I have new respect for the production team.
As far as the story goes, the way Carl comes into contact with the mask seemed very contrived—maybe that’s one of things that Henshaw was recalling when he said they didn’t get the episode quite right; but I think that was really the only weak point.
Have you ever thought about doing Kolchak: The Night Stalker? The second episode of the series, “The Zombie,” brings voodoo to Chicago (actually, the series brought almost every monster to Chicago).
Also, it was great hearing a shout out for the Mahoning Drive In. I’ve been there a coupe times and will be seeing Dracula and Creature from the Black Lagoon in August.
Looking forward to your reviews of the rest of Season 2.
