Shudder – the genre-lover’s streaming service – has already started to branch into documentary production with Horror Noire. But – not content with conquering just a visual medium – Shudder will take over the audio realm as well with three new podcasts.
Listeners can subscribe to Eli Roth’s History of Horror: Uncut, an expansion of the television series AMC Visionaries: Eli Roth’s History of Horror (available February 22); She Kills, a podcast by and about women in the horror genre, hosted by Adrienne Barbeau (available March 1); and Visitations with Elijah Wood & Daniel Noah, a unique series that invites listeners into the lives and homes of some of the most creative figures working in genre entertainment (coming in Spring 2019).
Each podcast will be available immediately to Shudder subscribers, or they can be downloaded on a weekly basis through Apple Podcasts.
She Kills seems like the perfect way to wrap up Women in Horror Month. The description on iTunes details the guests and guts of the podcast:
“Hosted by horror icon Adrienne Barbeau, SHE KILLS explores horror through a female lens with conversations from women in front of and behind the camera – including Karyn Kusama, Dee Wallace, Jennifer Tilly, Illeana Douglas, Polyanna McIntosh and more. Join these maidens of mayhem while they traverse titillating topics like Sex by Death, Damsel’s in Distress, Final Girls, Rape/Revenge and Nunspoloitation.”
Between the documentaries and the podcasts, Shudder seems intent on educating the masses on horror history. And I have to say, I am absolutely here for it.
