This Halloween week writer and critic Alicia Lutes joins me to dissect some of the new horror hits on film and TV. We cover Jaime Lee Curtis' return for her final confrontation with Michael Myers in Halloween, Luca Guadagnino's reboot of Dario Argento’s Suspiria and the Netflix hits Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and The Haunting of Hill House.
Plus – This week marks the US premiere of Boy Erased starring Nicole Kidman, Russell Crowe and Lucas Hedges. We revisit our interview with Garrard Conley, author of the memoir Boy Erased, and survivor of gay conversion therapy. Conley grew up in the US bible belt, the son of a Baptist pastor. After being outed to his parents they gave him an ultimatum: go to »gay conversion therapy« or lose your family, community and school forever.
The movie adaptation of Boy Erased premieres in the US on Nov 2nd, in other territories this winter and is showing at the Stockholm International Film Festival in November.
