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!

Mar 7, 2019

On this week’s Horror Podclass we are talking all about one of our deepest anxieties: how to feel about a movie that you thought was pretty good, but not really good at the same time.  That and our other big anxiety, money.  Specifically, the burgeoning subset of financial horror movies, Stakeland being our current target.  Also, what do horror and finances have to do with each other?
