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!

Welcome back to The Horror Pod Class! Today's discussion will center around the awesome Benson and Moorhead flick Resolution, with a bit of a continued discussion about their latest movie, The Endless.  Specifically, we discuss how the film uses addiction to tell a compellingly weird horror story and how they get it right when so many others don't.  Also, we make fun of some random guy who left a less than positive review on Amazon.  It's a good time.  Connect with us at:

The New Yorker Fiction Podcast is flat out awesome.  Head on over there and check out some great Jorge Louis Borges short stories that they have.  We recommend "Book of Sand" read by Mohsin Hamid and "The Gospel According to Mark" read by Paul Theroux.  "The Gospel According to Mark" is probably the closest Borges you will get to straight-up horror.

A great overview of the 5 Stages of Recovery over at CRC Health.

Dread Central overview of addiction in horror movies.

More discussion of addiction in the genre at The Blood-Shed.

A very excellent interview with Benson and Moorhead on Youtube courtesy of the SAG-AFTRA Foundation.

Ooh Meth! Public service announcement that still haunts Tyler's dreams. The resolution is terrible, but that was the best one we could find of the original PSA.  Look folks, it was simpler times OK?
