    This week's horror pick: Ginger Snaps (2000). Our hosts, Mary Kay, Rachel, and Mary, answer questions like: is werewolfism the best metaphor for the transition to womanhood, or is actually something more disgusting and monstrous?

Get on over here and do the damn thing:
    Read her on Daily Dead, Watch her on YouTube, Follow her on Twitter or Instagram, and of course go to her site at Real Queen of Horror.

So fun!

I’m so glad I found this podcast for while I work from home! Mary Kay’s voice is so soothing. I want her to read bedtime stories to me.

Thanks Ladies!
