Episode 57: Aquatic Horror with the Horror Queers


EPISODE SYNOPSIS:


In this episode, we are exploring the vast terrifying depths of the dark ocean waters with two very special guests from the Horror Queers, Joe and Trace. We are talking Aquatic Horror with the two films 47 Meters Down (2017) and Orca (1977). So take a deep breath as we discuss thalassophobia and the demonization of animals in the media.


Enjoy and welcome to our dark side…
