This is a podcast about fears and phobias, the origins and psychology behind them and the pieces of pop culture that have tried to convey them. Each time, we will discuss, conduct interviews, read listener's stories, analyze films and concentrate on a specific fear.
Have you ever heard of what happened in Waco Texas? If so, you know it's a terrifying event in American history. With the recent addition of the series "Waco" premiering on Netflix, I decided to dig deeper into what happened, directly from someone who had experienced it. In this episode I speak with David Thibodeau, one of the survivors from the siege on Mount Carmel in 1993. We talk about his experience, as well as his collaboration on the new series. While we are all stuck at home together, give it a listen! Also check out his website:
Have a fear of haunted houses? Have your own story? Do you ever wonder what it would be like to be quarantined in a known paranormal residence? In this episode Scott Markus is back, and we discuss films of the genre, with plenty of ghost stories, including some from our listeners! Plus I interview Cory and Jennifer Heinzen, the current owners stuck in the home made famous by the film The Conjuring, which has a significant history of paranormal activity. They are doing a 24 hour livestream, called “The House” featured on The Dark Zone. Enjoy, and Scare on! https://thedarkzone.tv
Due to our current restrictions, I thought I’d provide some pandemic/isolation like suggestions to watch. PLUS an exclusive interview with the spectacular Scout Taylor-Compton star of Rob Zombie’s Halloween. Enjoy! Scare on!
“Fear is a part of our everyday existence.” “What I love about horror is that it is so universal.”
In episode three I'm joined by special guest Daniel Myrick, director of Skyman and co-writer/director of The Blair Witch Project. We talk about his fears, Extraterrestrials (of course), plus we dive into Skyman and reflect on The Blair Witch Project!
On the second episode my guest Scott Markus and I take on the fear of drowning as well as the films/tv that capture them coming back as ghosts. With mentions of films like Dark Water, What Lies Beneath, The Devil's Backbone and a variety of others, we discuss some true stories as well as some fictionalized versions. We also hear from two listeners on their own perspectives on these fears. Scare on!
With episode one it's not just about one fear, but about what this podcast is. It serves as an opportunity to get to know your host, Kristy Strouse, and her guest Manon De Reeper, as we discuss our own fears, favorite portrayals in film/TV and comics, and the king of horror: Stephen King!
