A look at horror cinema in the seventies and eighties! In the second part of our Halloween special, Kazim and guest panelist Dennis jubilate about Bob Clark’s Black Christmas (1974). Then our panelists discuss the creation of the slasher, their favourite scary movie directors, feminism, the Italian horror renaissance, and the onslaught of sequels that followed in the nineties. Also, Dimitri comes up with a contemporary sequel to the 1986 gore fest Demons 2. Check out part one of our conversation, and then come back next time as we discuss contemporary horror.

Editor in Chief / Movie Critic: When he started this site, Dimitri never thought he'd be writing blurbs about himself in the third person. In his other life, he works as a writer, translator, and editor for various publications in print and online. His motto is, "Have pen, will travel."

Panelist: What can be said of a lass who dresses as a Hobbit and goes on adventures with her woodland companion, Hegemon the Vampire Hedgehog? To paraphrase Popeye, she is what she is, and if you thought that was Descartes, you have been misinformed.

Guest Contributor: From the number of armours Tony Stark's donned to last line in the Dawson's Creek finale, Dennis has an unlimited knowledge of geek entertainment. He's also a computer technician and trained martial artist, not that either tidbit is relevant.
