This week on End Credits, things are going to get dark. But Christmas is coming, you say! Pfft. Tell that to all these horror trailers, and upcoming scary movies, and also tell it to Bong Joon Ho. We’re going to review the movie that won Cannes, and now the art house, and we’re going to look at new trailers, a PG-13 rated horror, and Peter’s Best of the Decade!
This Wednesday, November 20, at 2 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Peter Salmon will discuss:
Black-ish Christmas. It was announced last week that the upcoming remake of Black Christmas will be rated PG-13. Many horror fans are concerned by that because such a rating implies less blood and guts that your typical slasher film that’s rated R, but could the filmmakers be right that PG-13 is the right rating for this film, and do you need an R to be scary?
A Sonic Invisible Man on Fantasy Island. A couple of months ago, they released a trailer with a CG hedgehog that was so bad, they had to redo it and delay the film’s release. Well, Sonic is back! Speaking of redos we’ll also look at the new trailers for the Blumhouse remake of the 70s series Fantasy Island, and the classic monster movie The Invisible Man.
The Best of the Decade, Part 3 of 5. We’re coming up on the end of the year, but we’re also coming up on the end of the decade, so what else are we supposed to do but make a list of our favourite films of the last 10 years? This week Peter will run down his Top 5 of all the films released between January 1, 2010 and right this very moment!
REVIEW: Parasite (2019). Bong Joon Ho’s Palme d’Or-winning film is on track to become one of the most successful foreign films at the North American box office, and it comes with a lot of hype and stratospheric critical acclaim. But what did *we* think of it? You’re going to find out! Bong’s film has comedy and thriller elements, plus an up-to-the-minute social message with its finger on the pulse. There’s no possible way we could disagree on this movie, right…?
