Episode #1: Discussion of origins of modern horror cinema

Discussion of the origins of modern horror cinema can be found here.

Show notes:
* Discussion of three films: Night of the Living Dead (1968), The Exorcist (1973), and The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974)
*Social commentary (i.e. race relations, gender stereotypes)
*Take that, Hollywood!
*Haitian vs. US zombies (or, where are the vampires?)
*Yum, split pea soup. My favorite!!
*Caveat: beware scary hitchhikers in Texas!

The song of the night, “Remains of the Day” by Blood Ruby was provided tonight from the PodShow Podsafe Music Network. Check it out at
