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!

Feb 6, 2019

On this week’s Horror Podclass we talking with writer and director Phil Gelatt about one of his favorite movies of all time, The Ninth Gate.  Phil wrote Europa Report and wrote the screenplay (adapted from a Laird Barron short story) and directed one of our favorite weird fiction films, They Remain.  Phil also gives us a bit of a heads up about a new Netflix project that he worked on entitled Love, Death, and Robots.  Then we get down into the gritty rare book dealing world of The Ninth Gate, how and why it has captivated Phil's attention, and what the creepy, magical, and powerful book trope means to the genre.

Make sure you check out They Remain and Europa Report as well, both come highly recommended from The Horror Pod Class.

Dark Corners of the Web:  Check out one of our favorite r/Nosleep stories, I found this transcription of an ill-fated podcast on the deep web. Anyone heard anything about the Black Pilgrimage?

Useful Links:

Phil highly recommends the book Ill Will by Dan Chaon.  

Regular listeners of the podcast will know that whenever Tyler isn't sure where an article came from, he attributes it to The Atlantic. This week the article "Is a Serial-Killer Gang Murdering Young Men Across the U.S.?" is actually from the Daily Beast.

Love, Death, and Robots sounds freaking awesome.  There isn't much out about it right now, but keep checking its page on Netflix!
