Midwest Monsters Episode 118 - What is Horror?

June 15, 2018

“That is not a horror movie”

“It was boring, a slow burn”

“That’s a thriller”

 

These are just a few phrases among many, that are frequently hurled around in conversation about horror movies. These conversations get some people bothered and for others, enrich the genre. With the success of “Get Out” last year, brought this conversation’s frequency back up and so we thought it was a good time to tackle the subject and weigh in on it! Tune in to hear what your co-hosts think distinguishes a horror film, horror-adjacent or not at all. Available now on iTunes, podbean, mixcloud and our blog! Enjoy the show!
