The Horror Movie Recap Episode


Recorded live at Stone Roads Tavern in Hamilton at the 2023 Marshall McLuhan Podcaster Roundtable, an annual get together with a small group of personal podcasters I call friends.

In 2022 I took part in a horror movie challenge - a year later, I'm recapping some of the highlights of the movies I watched and launching this year's challenge.

Follow along at Letterboxd and check out the full list of movies I watched last year at the 100 Horror Movies in 92 Days list.


There's a new episode of 100% Candice!

Movie Review - Polite Society

This week on End Credits, we have wedding bell blues. Well, not us necessarily, but the heroines of this week’s film do. In this episode, we watch a movie that takes us to one of those most ordinary of summer activities, going to a wedding. We’re watching Polite Society, a hit from this year’s Sundance Film Festival. Also, we’ve got another Indiana Jones to talk about.

Movie Review - Celebrating 300 Episodes of End Credits Radio!

This week on End Credits, we have cause for celebration. Some how, we’ve now cranked out 300 episodes of this local movie show for local movie fans, and on this distinguished occasion, we’re giving our listeners the present. Congratulations, you are about to listen to the biggest draft any movie show has ever done as we look back at some of our greatest hits!

This Wednesday, June 7, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson, Candice Lepage, Peter Salmon and Tim Phillips will discuss:

300! Is this is madness? No, this is the 300th episode of the show! It was six years ago this week that we sat down and produced episode one of End Credits. It wasn’t the first movie show ever produced, but it was the Guelphiest, and to mark 299 episodes completed so far, we’re this week joined by the entire panel for the End Credits 300th Episode Draft! From the some 280-plus reviews done on this show, the cast will each draw five movies from five different categories that represent some of our best memories. This. Is. SPAR-TA!!!
