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!

Howdy boys and girls, welcome back to another Horror Pod Class!  Today we are all going to learn about the "Screenlife" movie making technique, why it works or doesn't, and what it could mean to the future of movie making.  What is "Screenlife?" Screenlife is an innovative digital language that tells a whole narrative within the frames of a screen. The method was created by Timur Bekmambetov, whose name Tyler doesn't even try to pronounce correctly.

Before we get there, Tyler and Mike talk about what they are reading and watching and Mike tells us a ghost story!  A true life ghost story!  Maybe.

Here are some helpful links for today's Episode:

If Mike and Tyler's discussion about Matt Ruff's books Lovecraft Country and The Mirage sounds interesting, check out an interview with him on the Lovecraft eZine Podcast.  Big apologies to Mike Davis at The Lovecraft eZine Podcast, Mike says that the interview appeared on the This is Horror Podcast and he was wrong.  Both podcasts are great though and if you like us, you will love them too!

This weeks Dark Corner is a great short story by Orrin Grey named "Goblins" that you can find for free on Pseudopod.
