They take a deep dive into the rise of 1970s animal attack films, including JAWS, as well as the sub-sequent tidal wave of shark films that followed, exploring the shark’s cinematic journey all the way through contemporary trends.
Bekah’s Back: with Effects Make-up Extraordinaire Doug Morrow
While Elric is still away working on a film, Bekah is back for an abridged solo episode, discussing highlights of what she has been watching and reading during the break and then chatting with special effects make-up legend Doug Morrow.
Smart and fun horror discussion
The two hosts once did a few podcasts with other hosts and this is proof that sometimes a duo is better than a band.
Less franchise horror talk, more about good, fringe, foreign and groundbreaking horror. And horror history, but not dry, very interesting. You get the mainstream stuff too.
I can’t believe you all mentioned The Kindred. That was really my first horror movie I got introduced to😎👍🏾
Yes! As a new horror nerd, this show is splendid in every way
Can’t say enough good things about these two hosts and their dynamic together. I love the topics and ideas for each show, the interviews, the initial banter and new film reviews. It’s a near-perfect mix of fandom and analysis that I am happy I’ve just discovered. You should too!!
