The 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!

Sep 11, 2019

Welcome back class! Today we are joined by a very special guest, Larry Fessenden. Larry is a horror movie maker extraordinaire and founder of the independent horror production house Glass Eye Pix. His latest movie, Depraved, is a modern retelling of Frankenstein and Tyler and Mike loved it so much we just had to get Larry on to discuss the movie. We have a wide-ranging discussion including Larry's early '90s cult hit Habit, what draws Larry to the classic movie monsters, which themes in Frankenstein still have cultural significance, and how your kid son rebels against you when you are a horror movie maker. Depraved is out Friday, the 13th of September 2019 and will be playing in select theaters in the USA.
