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!

Feb 9, 2018

Class is back in session and in this episode of Horror Podclass we talk about the the low budget, but wonderfully executed, horror film "It Follows" and discuss the ways it uses disease imagery.  Here are some links to other interesting work that we discuss on this podcast.

Did you miss the Cloverfield Paradox commercial during the Big Game? Watch it on YouTube here.  Additionally, you can read Signal Horizon's review here.

6:50- Another Women in Horror Month shoutout and this time we discuss the work of Kristi DeMeester.  You can find more about her and her dark fiction at her website and you can check out one of her short fiction works narrated on Pseudopod Episode 528, The Room in the Other House. If her work sounds interesting, make sure you pick up her book "Everything That's Underneath" at Apex Book Company or her novel "Beneath" at Word Horde.


21:45- Here is a cool article in The Guardian about syphilis, its cultural connotations, and a relook at its infection rate in London.


30:00-  A great article on Though Catalog that not only talks about Jay's father but also some really interesting stuff about the seasons and the time period of the movie.


39:40- Brenden Morrow's article on regarding the sexual assault survivor imagery in the movie.


40:25- Esther Inglis-Arkell's article about how the movie is more about inevitability of death than sexually transmitted disease.  


45:50- An article on about urban decay in Detroit.  Holy crap this movie has a lot of meanings!


51:00-  Head on over to to get your free audio book!  We recommend the awesome, Ellen Datlow edited, The Best Horror of the Year Volume Nine.  Plus it features a short story by Kristi DeMeester!
