On this week’s Horror Podclass we are jumping back into one of our favorite subgenres: the ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE! Specifically, we are discussing the rather subdued movie, The Night Eats the World. It's French. It lacks machine guns. Not too much gore. But don't let that hold you back, as we have found Night Eats the World is a wonderful character study and a really complex exploration of loneliness. If you haven't seen it yet make sure you check it out on Amazon Prime Video, where a rental can be had pretty cheap. Watch out for the spoiler bell part way through the episode, this really is a fantastic movie and we would hate to take anything away from a first watch.

Big Shoutouts to Brian Kirk's new book Will Haunt You, IO, Strange Weather , and True Detective. Mike talks about John Darnielle's book Wolf in White Van and if you want to read the sample chapter that got him hooked click on this link to VICE.
The episode of The Outer Limits that Mike references is not, in fact, The Outer Limits but rather from the 1980's reboot of the Twilight Zone. The episode is named Shelter Skelter, which is a pretty damn cool name.
