This week on End Credits, things are getting stabby. Get the popcorn ready, sharpen your knife, and slip on your Ghostface mask, because this week we’re heading back to horror town for some more meta-textual movie commentary with Scream 5, or rather just Scream. Unfortunately, there’s also some real-life death to talk about, in this case a famous Canadian director.
This Wednesday, February 23, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Candice Lepage will discuss:
For Ivan. There was sad news for movie fans following the Super Bowl last week, the death of preeminent filmmaker Ivan Reitman. A comedy legend, Reitman brought many great films to the big screen as both a director and a producer including Meatballs, Animal House, Kindergarten Cop, and, of course, Ghostbusters. To kick off this week’s show, we will look at some of Reitman’s career highlights, or at least the highlights that have nothing to do with bustin’ ghosts.
REVIEW: Scream (2022). Just over 25 years ago, the original Scream movie became a worldwide sensation, and it launched a franchise that’s still chugging along with this, its fifth chapter. The residents of Woodsboro are plunged into another slasher mystery, and the knife is pointing at a woman with a dark secret that ties her back to the original murders in 1996. The new killer (or killers) are trying to create a legacy-sequel, a new generation of victims must figure out who they can trust and how they can survive, and we must figure out if the movie is worthwhile.
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
