Death comes for us all. 

Our love of horror makes us confront death.  Me?  I’m not so much afraid of death as the act of dying.  The fear of the pain that comes with it. 

In this episode, I talk about that human fear of death and dying.  I talk about my own experiences with people dying, and our culture’s attitudes about death.

And, of course, a couple of scary movies that help reinforce my attitudes.

First time listener - but not last time.

The river death sequence in 'Sometimes a Great Notion' is one of the great, unsettling, impactful scenes in film - once seen it just never really goes away. And your description was perfection. I always wonder why more people don't talk about and analyze it.
