Not Your Final Girl Podcast: Blockbuster After Hours

by Brendan M. Allen

The 90’s are back, and Candace Sluder and Ariel Dyer fully embrace it in this episode. You’re welcome! Candace and Ariel are talking to their guest Lauren McKenzie about Friends, the WB, the Clinton scandal, and, of course, their Kevin Williamson double feature: era-defining meta slasher Scream (1996) and its entertaining but underwhelming follow-up, I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997).

Can you The Secret-style manifest meeting your heroes? Should you? Are David Arquette and Freddie Prinze Jr. the same person? Does podcasting require jazz-hands at all times? Did Rose McGowan do Columbine? And who is Dawson? You’ll have to listen to find out. Other relevant and not-so-relevant topics covered include Wes Craven ambivalence, The L Word, Anne Heche among many other tragically misunderstood 90’s women, the heyday of Sarah Michelle Gellar (justice for Helen Shivers!), and the joy of horror that caters to female audiences.

Movies Discussed: Scream (1996), I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997)
