The best!

There’s no better horror podcast out there! Insightful, intelligent analysis, presented in a fun and captivating way by the two amazing hosts.

Great potential ruined by ”feminist” propaganda

I came here for the academic pov on horror which was promised to me by another listener, and the show delivers on that promise to some extent, mainly on the way it’s setup and presented. But as the hosts progress to their actual analyses of each film, everything starts to get dissected from a ”feminist” perspective rather than an academical one. Wouldn’t be a problem for me if it weren’t for the fact that the hosts don’t deal in actual feminism, but rather radical, post modern ”feminism” which is more based on identity politics than discussions on equality.
