The Current State of Horror

Horror has always existed on the fringe of entertainment, but when you take a closer look, you'll see that it holds a surprising amount of truth about humanity, and seems to make the most relevant statements about our culture at any given time. Horror has always excelled when society is unstable, and I think we're living in quite an interesting time for scary stories.

In the very first episode, I tell you a little bit about who I am and discuss why horror is currently so popular in today's culture.

In this episode, I discuss:

  • Get Out

  • The Shape of Water

  • Stranger Things

  • IT (2107)

  • The Walking Dead

  • Black Mirror

  • Frankenstein (1931)
