To prepare for the second episode of season one, we’re hosting an online watch party of the next film we discuss: Carnival of Souls. Join us on Saturday, July 25 at 7pm Central . We’ll be watching via Amazon Prime’s Watch Party feature.
A slow-burn witch tale turned on its head. We explore how director Robert Eggers uses film to guide our perception to tell this tale of survival against the wilds in New England. Masculine toxicity, isolationism, coming of age, and general fear of the unknown play a key role in this film as we continually question: what’s really witchcraft and what’s not.

Quiet Little Horrors is a new podcast discussing films of quiet horror. In this first intro episode, get quick insight into how the podcast was born and what your hosts, Jessi and Jen, hope to accomplish in Season 1. You’ll hear what we love about these types of movies, why we are drawn to them, and how we think they are a rising sub-genre in the industry.
