Horror month concludes in episode 50 (that’s huge!) as Merri and Missy discuss women writers and directors of the horror sphere. What unique contributions do marginalized groups make to the genre? What’s so scary about not being listened to? Babadook-dook-dook-dook-dook.

We also don’t censor our cussing and there are spoilers for The Yellow Wallpaper, The Haunting of Hill House, The Fisher Queen, The Babadook, and A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night.
