Class is back in session and in this episode of Horror Podclass we talk about the the low budget, but wonderfully executed, horror film "It Follows" and discuss the ways it uses disease imagery. Here are some links to other interesting work that we discuss on this podcast.
6:50- Another Women in Horror Month shoutout and this time we discuss the work of Kristi DeMeester. You can find more about her and her dark fiction at her website and you can check out one of her short fiction works narrated on Pseudopod Episode 528, The Room in the Other House. If her work sounds interesting, make sure you pick up her book "Everything That's Underneath" at Apex Book Company or her novel "Beneath" at Word Horde.
21:45- Here is a cool article in The Guardian about syphilis, its cultural connotations, and a relook at its infection rate in London.
30:00- A great article on Though Catalog that not only talks about Jay's father but also some really interesting stuff about the seasons and the time period of the movie.
39:40- Brenden Morrow's article on Bloody-Disgusting.com regarding the sexual assault survivor imagery in the movie.
40:25- Esther Inglis-Arkell's article about how the movie is more about inevitability of death than sexually transmitted disease.
45:50- An article on Slate.com about urban decay in Detroit. Holy crap this movie has a lot of meanings!
51:00- Head on over to www.audibletrial.com/HPC to get your free audio book! We recommend the awesome, Ellen Datlow edited, The Best Horror of the Year Volume Nine. Plus it features a short story by Kristi DeMeester!
