Loved how these amazing woman spoke about this movie. One thing, important (SPOILER), that we missed was that fact that Jess is only kind off the final girl. She doesn’t have to live with it because she is killed off at the credits roll!!!
Amazing insightful discussion on horror
This podcast is much more interesting to me than many similar that I’ve tried. They offer interesting context around the films and themes. No terrible jokes and people trying to be funny with comedy bits.
Phenomenal podcast - I re-listen to episodes all the time. The perfect balance of thought-provoking and approachable.
