The Wicker Man (1973) + Blood From the Mummy's Tomb + The Babadook + The Shining

Season 1, Episode 277,  Oct 28, 2020, 06:00 PM

It's time for our Halloween special, and it's a very special Halloween special this year. Not only is it our last episode, but we're reviewing our favourite horror movies! First up, Mick nearly breaks the purpose of the show by questioning whether The Wicker Man is a horror movie or not. Then Tim brings a late-period Hammer classic out of its sarcophagus with Blood From the Mummy's Tomb. In the second half of the show, Rob opens the book on Jennifer Kent's queer cinema milestone The Babadook, and finally Graham risks the wrath of Stephen King with Stanley Kubrick's The Shining. What better companion to a quiet five months in?

Not that we plan to be gone for that long. Cinema Eclectica may be over, but we've got two - two! - new movie podcasts coming your way in 2021. Thanks so much for all your listens, shares, reviews, Question of the Week answers and so much more over the last five years, and come January we're looking forward to seeing you all again!

If you want to help us make the big changes we're currently working on, our Patreon is here. Don't forget to check in at the main site for exclusive reviews, and we'll see you in 2021!
