This week on End Credits, we catch up with old friends, and newer old friends. We had to wait a whole year, but we finally get a new entry in the retooled Scream franchise, which means we’re heading to New York (via Montreal) for Scream VI. And sticking to the horror realm, we’re going to play a game and dive deep into horror’s golden age in the 1980s.
This Wednesday, March 29, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Candice Lepage will discuss:
The 1980s Horror Movie Draft. The Scream franchise began as a kind of satire of slasher films, which came to prominence in the 1980s in what was probably the greatest film era of horror movies until very recently. But which horror movies from the 80s are draft worthy? To start this week’s show, we’re going to play another draft, and choose the best horror flicks in categories like “Franchise”, “Fantasy”, and “Creature Feature”.
REVIEW: Scream VI (2023). It took eight movies for Jason to make to his way to New York City, but Ghost Face has done it in six! The latest entry in the Scream franchise sees the new characters introduced in last year’s re-quel head to the Big Apple as a way to prevent their lives from becoming another horror movie, but Ghost Face has moved to New York too and he’s still interested in making the Carpenter Sisters the stars of another franchise entry. Were the directing team of Radio Silence able to capture again the magic of Scream?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
