This week on End Credits it’s Halloween week! Yes, the day itself is on Saturday, but it’s also Halloween week in show as we appropriately run the series on the movie series of the same name. Also, just in time for Halloween, we have an all-new horror-comedy to review that finally brings vampires, and the people of the Bronx, together in one film.
This Wednesday, October 28, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Candice Lepage will discuss:
Run the Series: Halloween. There have been 11 Halloween movies including the 1978 original directed by John Carpenter. The series has been rebooted two times, retconned three times, and only one featured a story that had nothing to do with Michael Myers. Halloween has set the curve for slasher films, and the series isn’t over yet, but this week we will rank all the entries so far.
REVIEW: Vampires Vs. the Bronx (2020). From Nosferatu to Twilight, vampires have been a constant presence in the movies, but can they stand up to the Bronx? The New York City-set horror-comedy sets a group of civically-minded kids against a nest of vampires trying to gentrify their borough and the beloved neighbourhood bodega where Tony lets the kids watch Blade. So can the kids take what they’ve learned from the Daywalker and save their ‘hood? And, more importantly, is the movie any good?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
