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’re back with episode 24, talking about spooky movies in this, the spookiest of months! After a disastrous attempt at this episode a year ago (for which we have never forgiven Audacity), we’re revisiting films like Rosemary’s Baby, I Spit on Your Grave, and Teeth to discuss horror’s power to critique our culture through fear. Other topics include the final girl trope, the treatment of women, the demonization of mental illness and the poor, and other things that make up one of our favorite genres.
