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!

Nov 19, 2018

Welcome back, class!  Today Tyler and Mike are talking about The Strangers (2018) and what it has to tell us as an exemplar of the Home Invasion Subgenre.  Is there even such a thing?  What does it mean and why does it scare us?  Did 9/11 change horror?  Those are some of the topics we cover, as well as "Tyler's Taxonomy of Home Invasion Movies."  Before we get there though, we discuss our new favorite short horror film from Parallel Madness, some upcoming books from Broken Eye Books, and the really cool experiment that is Concord Free Press.  Here are some helpful links for today's Episode:
