“Reel Talk” – with Chris Reed and Denise Kitashima Dutton – on “Halloween” (and Other Horror), “Boy Erased” and “They’ll Love Me When I’m Dead”

Christopher Llewellyn Reed, “Reel Talk” host, w/ Denise Kitashima Dutton, of “Atomic Fan Girl”

Welcome to the second episode of the 2018-2019 season of Dragon Digital Media‘s Reel Talk with Christopher Llewellyn Reed. My guest this time was the Atomic Fan Girl herself, Denise Kitashima Dutton, returning to the show once more. We discussed Halloween (and a little bit of Suspiria), as well as Denise’s other favorite recent horror films (and how the genre is not really my thing), plus Boy Erased and They’ll Love Me When I’m Dead, the new Netflix documentary about Orson Welles’ last film. Enjoy? Be sure to check out our first episode of the season, or even last year’s season (Episode 1Episode 2Episode 3Episode 4 and Episode 5). We’ll be back in January. Until then!

In Howard County, Maryland, you can watch the show on Channel 41 (if you’re a Verizon customer) or Channel 96 (if you’re a Comcast customer), and you can watch it online from anywhere. The fantastic Dragon Digital Media team did their usual superlative job putting this together, especially producer Karen Vadnais and director Danielle Maloney, as well as floor manager Anthony Hoos. Have fun this summer at the movies! Here’s hoping there are at least a few great films!

Episode 406 of @fogoftruth Is Now Up, with Review of 78/52: HITCHCOCK’S SHOWER SCENE and Interview with Kimberly Reed of DARK MONEY

In a special Halloween-themed episode of The Fog of Truth, things get spooky as we talk about the myriad of horror documentaries available online, review 78/52: Hitchcock’s Shower Scene, and Chris interviews Kimberly Reed of Dark Money. As always, you can find the episode on our “episodes” page, on iTunesSoundCloud and Stitcher, and anywhere podcasts are generally available.

This episode concludes our fourth season. We’ll be taking a longer break than usual between this and Season 5, which will begin just after the start of the Sundance and Slamdance festivals, at the end of January. Stay tuned for our first of two bonus episodes, however, sometime in December. Until then, you can get even foggier by going back and listening to our previous episodes. Enjoy!
