Trash, Art, And The Movies
The podcast that pits arthouse cinema against brainless entertainment—and then declares a victor.

In honour of Halloween, Erin and Paul review two films about witches scheming to rid the world of children: Nicolas Roeg's 1990 Roald Dahl adaptation THE WITCHES; and the 1993 sleepover favourite HOCUS POCUS. Plus our quick takes on QUEEN OF KATWE, JACK REACHER: NEVER GO BACK, MASCOTS, 13TH, and JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE + THE TENNESSEE KIDS.
