DRtL Episode 55: Back From The Dead!

Posted on Mar 13 2017 in Episodes

Hello, horror fiends! Did you have a good New Year’s? And, uhhh, a good Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Chinese New Year, Groundhog Day, Valentine’s Day, and Mardi Gras — ? So, yeah, it’s been a little while since our last episode, is what we’re saying, here. Between Michael being out of town a lot, and Jen losing her job, her house, and then her Grandmother in rapid succession, there’s been a hell of a lot of so-called “real life” cutting into our podcasting time.

But now we’re Back From The Dead, and what better way to celebrate that than with an episode about horror movies where people return from the grave? We’re not talking ghosts, or vampires, or zombies — we’vddde done episodes on all of those already. We’re talking all the other revenants of every type and description.

Along the way, we talk about Letterboxd, a site for keeping track of the movies you watch; the late, lamented iMDB message boards; the critical role of politics in the horror genre; and the online horror movie offerings of services like Shudder and Fandor. All that and more is waiting for you in the latest episode, so stuff it into your eager brainmeats, let us know what you think in the comments, and as always, be sure to rate and review us on iTunes to let your fellow horror fans know we’re worth checking out. It’s great to be back — thanks for listening, and we will be back in two weeks.

  1. I certainly am eager to put these digitally reproduced noises into my brainmeats!

    In terms of politics, I lump horror in with the rest of speculative fiction. Politics drive these genres. Politics inform what we are afraid of in horror, how we conceive of the future in science fiction, how we craft the magical worlds in fantasy. Politics influence every question that we ask, and if someone thinks there’s too much politics it merely means that they benefit from NOT questioning the status quo.


  2. I am so glad you are back! I was so worried you had decided to not keep the podcast going anymore. You two are my favorite commute buddies (I have a two hour drive one way.) Can’t wait to listen to this!


  3. Thank you! Hope you enjoy it. And don’t worry — if we ever decide to stop doing this, we will announce that ahead of time. We’re not going to leave anyone hanging!
