Don’t let THEM in!
Or are you the one they’re trying to keep out?
The Us vs. Them mentality is a backdrop for some really good horror stories. Frankenstein being a great example. The Monster is the outsider, but yet you sympathize with him.
In these conflicts, horror is uniquely suited to tell some great stories, and give different results. What makes THEM...them? How easily can WE become THEM?
“Civilized” society is a tough path to tread. In this episode I talk about Horror and the outsider. I bring up Frankenstein and then go from short stories to little known movies to popular movies of the last decade.
I think there’s something for everyone in this episode.
