What are we Reading

Tyler is reading Best Horror of the Year Volume 8 (Specifically in a Canyon in a Cavern).  He is also watching Tag a Japanese horror film.  He also discusses this article from Kotaku about NPCs.

Mike is reading Her Body and Other Parties by Carmen Maria Machado Review.  Check out our review He is also really excited about A Peoples Future of the United States.  Both guys talk about Tananrive Due and how awesome she is.  Which also leads them to discuss Levar Burton's retweets about Roots and Star Trek.  

Also Mike hates Manifest.  Our TV critic is lukewarm about it.  

Dark Corners of the Web comes from Nightmare Magazine and really cool take on the La Llorona myth by SILVIA MORENO-GARCIA called Lacrimosa.  Read it here.    

Bell Rings.

 

Watch these series of shorts by Innuendo Studios about Gendered Violence and Mad Max Fury Road.  They are truly awesome and a must for the conversation we are about to have.  

Tyler discusses Carol J. Clover's seminal work about the Final Girl, 

Men, Women, and Chainsaws: Gender in the Modern Horror Film.
