DRtL Episode 24: Orphans and Orphanages!

Posted on Jun 01 2015 in Episodes

We’re back from Crypticon! We had a pretty great time, and we’re here to tell you about it. And Montoure has some selections from this year’s Seattle International Film Festival! All of which turns out to be a good thing, because the topic we had chosen for this episode turns out to be a little thin on the ground. It sure seemed like creepy orphans and orphanages were a staple of the horror genre, but we ended up having to kind of stretch our definitions to find enough to talk about ….

  1. Funnily enough, Black Waters of Echo’s Pond was on UK TV a few days before you posted this episode. I watched it, and … yeah…

    I have had sleep paralysis happen to me, it was one of the most terrifying experiences of my life. I had a floating face over by my TV, and a slow, distorted deep male voice talking to me that I couldn’t understand the words. People are saying that The Nightmare isn’t a real documentary, but more of a mockumentary, though either way I am interested.

    I can’t remember whether it’s the same in The Innocents, but in The Turn of the Screw they are orphans; the man responsible for them is their uncle.

    I am also surprised that there aren’t as many horror films with this theme, I guess maybe it’s a subset of the ‘creepy children’ thing.
