This week on End Credits, it’s a holiday episode. As fate would have it, this week’s episode falls on Canada Day proper, which makes us want to look at the movies from here at home to celebrate, and if you feel like celebrating, we’ll tell you where you can find some great Canadian films. After that, pull the drapes and get under the covers because we’ve got a horror movie anthology to review.
This Wednesday, July 1, at 2 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Candice Lepage will discuss:
Streaming Canada. In case you didn’t notice, today is Canada Day. Now people’s choice for movie options don’t usually begin with what’s Canadian, and Canadian options aren’t usually presented in the menu, so for this week’s pre-review segment, we’re going to rundown some of the Canadian flicks that are available now on the major streaming services.
REVIEW: Scare Package (2019). Horror and comedy together is like chocolate and peanut butter, two things that shouldn’t work well when combined, but when it’s good, it’s reeeeally good. Does the combination work when you throw in a third element, an anthology? Scare Package, a new film on Shudder, has laughs, has gore, and has about eight different stories reflecting various horror subgenres, but does the chemistry work or is it a big green gooey mess with a talking skull head in the middle?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
