    Episode 76: The List (Revised)

    Episode 76: The List (Revised)

    In 2015, Jen and Dawn sat down to list out their choices for the 10 most feminist-friendly films for new horror fans to watch. It was a good list. A fine list. A fine and goodly list.
    It is now an outdated list.
    Join the Women In Caskets as they look back and realize mistakes were made and update their list to reflect many of the amazing films that have come out in the last four years, and pay homage to the ones that came before.
    NOTE: Due to a scheduling glitch, this podcast and the next regular podcast are being played out of order so there are references to a "previous episode" that hasn't been released yet. That podcast will be released in the next month.
    Now for some links to the episodes we've done on the films:
    The Original List - Episode 13 Alien - The Rants Macabre Nov. 9th, 2015 Teeth - Episode 22 The Babadook - Episode 5 The Final Girls - Episode 32 The Love Witch - Episode 45 (with Director Anna Biller) Raw - Episode 55 Revenge - Episode 74 And last, but not least, a shout-out to this years' honorable mentions. Not everyone can make the team, but they played on heck of a game: You're Next, The Craft, Gerald's Game, The Ranger, The Shape of Water, American Mary and Prevenge.

    We Need to Talk About Mike

    We Need to Talk About Mike

    Welcome to the first of an experimental format here on the podcast, where a topic is chosen and one of your hosts takes a swing at it. 
    Today... we need to talk about Mike Hanlon and the new adaptation of Stephen King's It. How a brilliant and vital part of the Losers Club was reduced to a shadow of his former self, and how that may have happened.
    So buckle in as we wind up the speculation machine and try to figure this all out, shall we?
    If you like this format and want to see more, have an idea for a name, or an idea for a topic, please lets us know! We're available on Twitter (@womenincaskets) and email (podcast@womenincaskets.com) and we'd love to hear from you.
    Also, if you would, please rate and review us on iTunes or wherever you catch your podcasts. It really means a lot to us.
    There were a lot of inspirations and sources for this episode so here we go:
    La Melle (BlackGirlNerds.com) "Mike Who? Mike Hanlon. The New Magical Negro of Derry, Maine." Zak Cheney-Rice (Mic.com) "Mike Hanlon, the black kid in Stephen King’s ‘It,’ has a remarkable backstory. The movie erased it." Jason Alston (Medium.com) "The Tragic Fall of Mike Hanlon: One of American Fiction’s Only Black Male Librarians is Re-Imagined… As a Drug Addict" Travis Johnson (FilmInk.com.au) "Mike Hanlon: It‘s Invisible Loser" Lindsay Ellis (YouTube.com/LindsayEllis) "The Hobbit: Battle of Five Studios (Part 2/2)" Intro Music: "Have You Met Sir Belmont" Nostalvania (via OCRemix)

    Episode 75: Such Sights to Show You

    Episode 75: Such Sights to Show You

    After far too long, the Women In Caskets Return with a much anticipated look at one of their favorite films of all time: Clive Barker's Hellraiser. And this time, they've brought a friend to solve the puzzle box with them, Lindsay Jones (RWBY, Camp Camp, Achievement Hunter, Rooster Teeth).
    Join the intrepid trio as they discuss this blood-soaked fairy tale of love, lust and murder while marveling at the many uses of condoms and how this all could have been avoided with a good dominatrix. (Seriously, these people need professional help.)
    For more information on Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser II, check out Leviathan: The Story of Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser II now streaming on Shudder. 
    Thanks always to The Shape for the intro and outro music. Now also featuring, "Fritz Was Here" by YoshiBlade (via OCRemix).

    Episode 74: Gaze Into My Eyes

    Episode 74: Gaze Into My Eyes

    If you ever wanted a lesson in not dismissing a film based on it's plot summary, look no further than Coralie Fargeat's, Revenge. Dawn and Jen gleefully take you though this expertly crafted, symbol-laden, stunningly beautiful example of their least favorite cinematic trope: the rape/revenge flick. 
    So, warning: discussion of sexual assault and the treatment of survivors is all over this podcast.
    If you're interested in watching the movie after listening to this podcast, but want to skip the assault, we have timecodes for the wary on our website HERE.

Like being with old friends

If you want a recommendation, I can honestly say this podcast propelled me from liking a couple of old horror movies to full on horror movie devotee. Jen and Dawn are honest and real and I can't wait to hear more from them!

More women in horror!

Love listening to this ladies talk about horror, I keep a little notepad at my desk to make notes while I listen. Keep at it!

Ladies make Horror Better

Don’t get me wrong. The reason I like this podcast is because it stands on its own merit and the hosts are talented, funny, and informative. Full stop. And no matter what, it is worth checking out. However, the fact they bring a much needed Woman’s (and sometimes feminist) perspective to horror is refreshing. Being a woman who is a fan of horror, I’m oft want to find decent this perspective, and often men, I’m sorry, just don’t do it for me.
I find myself listening here to two women who talk like my friends and I do, who share perspectives and opinions that my friends and I share. It’s good to hear your own voice out there in the ether.
And it so happens that women handle horror in a unique way and it is good to see women in horror represented.
Gender politics aside, I will summarize my original sentiment. This is a damned good horror podcast.
