Horror Pod Class


Hey class!  Come meet Mike and Tyler, two high school teachers who absolutely love to talk and write about the horror genre!  We also own and write for a website named Signal Horizon, where you can get the latest news, reviews, and analysis of works from the horror and dark science fiction genres!

Jan 7, 2019

Welcome back to The Horror Pod Class! Today's discussion will center around the brand new Netflix blockbuster, Bird Box.  Specifically, we discuss how the film uses a discussion of parenting styles to make an engaging narrative.  Also, we make fun of some random guy who left a review of The Happening on Amazon.  It's a good time.  Connect with us at:
