Yes! Women are allowed to love genre movies!

Oh my godddd, as a lady who loves movies that don't always love me back, it's fantastic to hear women both gush and honestly discuss issue with the genres that are close to my heart, noir, crime, horror, sci-fi. Also fantastic to hear unapologetic, unblushing, unembarassed discussions of these genres that are assigned the label of 'not serious' though they often allegorically or otherwise deal more honestly with societal problems, and offer main roles (though not always flattering ones) to women or marginalized people than many so-called 'serious' movies. Plus it gives me such a great movie list to tackle, and I know that they have been vetted by people whose opinions to trust. And April is an AMAZING interviewer. Switchblade Sister 4-eva!

Inspiring and Informative!

April is a GREAT interviewer, and I'm always adding things to my watchlist. I'm trying to watch more films by female filmmakers, and this is a great resource.

Genre movie love!

Such an awesome podcast for those who love genre movies and filmmaking! Great discussions that are so well-researched, fun, and passionate about movies that can sometimes be seen as lesser (and aren’t!). It’s also introduced me to new movies and filmmakers that I’m now so glad to know of because they’re all right up my alley.

It’s so great to hear a fresh perspective revisiting films like Body Double and Mulholland Drive. The podcast also brings awareness to under-seen gems like One False Move and Night of the Comet! This is one of the best movie podcasts I constantly reference and I’ll continue to recommend it to everyone!
