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.
This Wednesday, October 20, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Candice Lepage will discuss:
INTERVIEW: Jolene Banning from Spirit to Soar. Journalist Tanya Talaga wrote a book called Seven Fallen Feathers, which was about the mysterious deaths of seven Indigenous students who were found along the river in Thunder Bay. Talaga turned the themes and ideas of her book into a documentary called Spirit to Soar, which is running at this year’s Guelph Film Festival. Journalist Jolene Banning did research on the film and produced an accompanying podcast, and she joins us to talk about life in Thunder Bay for Indigenous people.
REVIEW: Halloween Kills (2021). Michael Myers has been haunting Halloween for 43 years and in a dozen movies, and the 13th entry in the Halloween franchise is now in theatres. In this chapter, a direct follow-up to the 2018 Halloween reset, Michael terrorizes again the small Illinois town of Haddonfield, but this time Haddonfield fights back as the townfolk rise up to beat their literal boogeyman. From the same creative team as the 2018 film, Halloween Kills tries to follow up on some of the same themes, but is it a good sequel or is it just another slasher?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
