Episode 03.06M: The Changeling

This month we’re talking about movies that deal with the loss of a child, beginning with 1980s The Changeling. It’s a good start, but this one falls short of what we were hoping for. We discuss the psychological underpinnings we were expecting to see emerge more and how expectations for that sort of thing in horror films have evolved.

Episode 03.04M: La Llorona

We begin a month’s discussion of folklore in psychological horror film with 2019’s La Llorona. Despite its honor as Guatemala’s submission for best international film, this one seems to have been overshadowed by lesser films with the same story device, but we think it deserves more recognition for its effective and affecting use of myth.
