I made a guest appearance on Jasen Buch's The Illuminati Social Club podcast to talk about the entire Halloween Franchise, but mostly Halloween Kills.

Spoilers ahead!

Episode 35: The Halloween Franchise

The Club is finally back, and Candice Lepage joins me to discuss the new Halloween movie, Halloween Kills as well as the rest of the franchise. We even bring up those other movies directed by the music guy.

Movie Review: Halloween Kills

This week on End Credits, we’re going to deal with horrors both real and imagined. On the real side, we’ll have another interview with a Guelph Film Festival participant whose film deals with violence against Indigenous people. In terms of the imaginary, we go back to a fictional American town that has been plagued by a masked killer for nearly 50 years for another grisly entry.

It's Nice To Be Back!


After a summer break Candice and Steph are back to talk books, movies and music, with only a side of feminism and social justice.

Candice read some books on break and Steph started a dance class.

** We were together in real space with lots of distance so there's a bit of a big echoey room sound, and lots of talking all over each other. We were excited. Deal with it.

Books

Gerald's Game, Dolores Claiborne, Insomnia, Rose Madder & The Green Mile by Stephen King

Evil by Julia Shaw

Movie Review: Kid 90

This week on End Credits, we remember the 90s. For some of us, the 90s are not so easy to forget having lived there, and nostalgia comes to stay in the second half of this week’s show with Kid 90. Speaking of nostalgia, the first part of the show is dedicated to one of Hollywood’s most bankable players with 25 movies over 60 years, and counting: Bond, James Bond.

Movie Review: Candyman (2021)

This week on End Credits, we’re trying to get some buzz going. Yes, that’s a bee pun, which is fitting because bees are all over the movie we’re reviewing this week, and while we hesitate to join a hive mind, we’re pretty excited about it. This week, we’re reviewing the new horror movie called Candyman, and we’re getting into the second part of our fall movie preview.

Movie Review: Fear Street Trilogy (1994, 1978, 1666)

This week on End Credits we feel the chills. This August day, we will shut ourselves indoors, turn off the lights, and binge an entire new horror trilogy on Netflix. This week, we are tackling each and every entry of the Fear Street trilogy! Will Fear Street offer the spine-tingling delights we want? Let’s hope so, we’re throwing a whole episode at it.
