With Halloween just around the corner (followed by an unsatisfying reboot, no doubt), the Empire Podcast is turning its attention to scary fillums this week, and they don't come much more scary than Rose Glass' astonishing debut, Saint Maud. Glass, and her star, the wonderful Morfydd Clark, both chat to our Ben Travis in this week's episode. And the not-in-any-way-scary-but-still-great crime comedy-drama, Kajillionaire, is also out this week, marking the return of writer-director Miranda July after almost a decade away. She talks to Ian Freer about where she's been and what we can expect from her new film.

Then, in the virtual podbooth, Chris Hewitt is joined by Helen O'Hara, James Dyer, and Terri White for an epic episode in which they discuss what's happening on the UK cinema scene in the wake of Cineworld/Picturehouse's temporary closure, and the release date shift for No Time To Die. They also dig into the week's movie news, including trailers galore, and review Saint Maud in spectacularly chaotic, sweary fashion, along with Kajillionaire, Dick Johnson Is Dead, I Am Woman and the scariest fillum of them all: Adam Sandler's Hubie Halloween.

Enjoy... if you dare!
