We return to our deep dive into lycanthrope lore and popular culture in this Part 2 of Curse of the Werewolves. Darren and Mindy dig in to some historical accounts of monsters, murderers, and medical anomalies. In our coverage, we review two modern werewolf classics, Neil Marshall's DOG SOLDIERS, and Joe Dante's THE HOWLING.
Our music is back up for sale at BandCamp https://darrenty.bandcamp.com/album/apophenia - Check out our song "When I" where Mindy sings lead!

Before we wrap up our summer break, we're checking in with a fun chat about... Ancient Aliens and Bob Lazar. Joining us is Jaxon, Mindy's husband (and baby Syd in the background) and Ancient Aliens fan. We talk about the documentary Bob Lazar: Area 51 & Flying Saucers (2018), and compare notes with the ancient astronaut theorist.
For our part 2 of our series on Black Horror we rejoin our conversation with Kristina Leath-Malin. We discuss black and French Horror, as well as Kristina's MFG short film "One For The Road", her Stephen King Dollar Baby with 90% Female cast and crew.

For Part 1 of our long-awaited conversation on Black Horror we are joined by Kristina Leath-Malin. As an academic, filmmaker and feminist horror scholar, Kristina's MA on French Horror and the "New Wave Extremity" culminated with her thesis-turned-published book Objectification repackaged: The Women of 21st Century French Horror. Her current work at https://myfinalgirl.com/ and documentary project My Final Girl: Black Women in American Horror includes a web/podcast series, video work, and an internet database dedicated to exploring the positioning and representation of Black Women in American Horror Films. Together we discuss the documentary Horror Noire (on SHUDDER), and look at a cross section of seminal films in black horror.
Hey listeners! While we prep for coming episodes and take some time to breathe, we're sharing this exclusive Patreon episode. We're excited for Jordan Peele's 'US' coming out March 21 and thought it would be fun to offer up this installment about Peele's directorial debut 'GET OUT'.
And a HUGE thank you to our Patreon patrons who made this episode possible. You're the best!
We've got some things in the works, so you'll get an update episode before February is out.
