75: Black Christmas with Cindy Hinds
This week, we welcome Canada's "Princess of Horror" Cindy Hinds to cover the horror classic Black Christmas. Cindy was only a child when she acted in such high profile project as The Brood and The Deadzone. We do talk a bit about her career, but we make sure we have plenty of time to chat about this cornerstone of Canadian cinema. We cover the subversions of a genre that was just getting started, how to be an effective audience surrogate, and how your appreciation of horror movies alters as you age.
We also get some great inside info about Art Hindle, with Cindy addressing if he still owns that sweet fur coat, and lastly, we discuss if we'd be the people who would leave if the cops told us to, or go back for our friends.
This week's end credit music is from the Black Christmas OST, composed by Carl Zittrer.
On this week's show
