Greetings, ghouls, and get ready for a little tension and suspense. Candace Sluder and Ariel Dyer are back from the beach, still relatively young, and are talking to comics and tv writer Pornsak Pichetshote about the horror comics that freaked us out the most, film criticism as a defense mechanism, and today’s double feature.
Today they’ve got two variations on the home invasion genre, Green Room (2015), and Funny Games (1997 and 2007 because they accidentally watched two different versions).
Stick around for discussion of so-called “elevated” horror, analysis of punch-able faces, a performance “devoid of camp,” more reviews from fake Roger Ebert, and one (1) shocking confession from Ariel. One or more of these movies may get on your nerves, but hey, buy the ticket, take the ride, right? You’re in good hands. We promise.
Pornsak Pichetshote is a Thai-American writer of comics and TV. His comic book series Infidel has been listed on NPR’s Best Horror Stories of all Time, featured on 20+ Best of the Year lists (including NPR, Barnes & Noble, Huffington Post & The Hollywood Reporter) and optioned for a feature film by Sugar23 and Tristar Pictures. His new book The Good Asian has launched to industry acclaim. As a TV writer, his work includes Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger, Two Sentence Horror Stories, and Light as a Feather
