Not Your Final Girl Podcast: ‘A Very Vintage Halloween’

by Brendan M. Allen

The time is nigh. From the black and white world, Candace Sluder and Ariel Dyer are hanging out with filmmaker Chelsea Stardust for their annual Vintage Halloween episode, where they discuss some of the most festive pre-1970 horror films.

Get ready for this triple feature. Spanning three decades, they’ve got atmospheric and suspenseful psychological classic Cat People (1942), followed by Hammer campfest The Curse of Frankenstein (1952), in which Peter Cushing is toxic in his little outfits. Last up, low-budget indie nightmare of our hearts, Carnival of Souls (1962). In case you’re wondering, there is a common theme in these movies, but you gotta listen to find out.  

Chelsea Stardust is a filmmaker known for her work on two successful horror movies, All That We Destroy (2019) and Satanic Panic (2019). You can follow Chelsea on instagram right here to see what’s coming next from her.

Movies Discussed: Cat People (1942), The Curse of Frankenstein (1957), Carnival of Souls (1962)
