Horror lovers give this a try

Combines genuine fondness and passion for the horror genre with nuanced discussion of the films. Well worth listening to.

Endlessly insightful. Immensely enjoyable.

Although Horror may seem to contain more than its fair share of problematic depictions of women, a reasonable case can be made for it actually being film’s most feminist genre. With this in mind, Anna Bogutskaya and esteemed guests discuss and dissect classics, soon-to-be classics, and films possibly best left forgotten alike with wit, intelligence and passion. As well, Anna is a charming, first-rate host and an effective, insightful interviewer. Essential! Pair with The Evolution of Horror. The Projections and Arrow Video pods for max effect.
