Women In Caskets

Jul 27, 2017

Before Dawn and Jen take a close look at two films featuring women who are not, as they say, all together sane, they wanted to to take a broader look at the way "crazy" women have been portrayed in horror cinema and television.

In the second of a two-part series, your hosts talk about what hysteria is historically and start to break down the different kinds of crazy ladies horror has to offer: the obsessions, the thirst for vengeance and those crazy, crazy Mommies of the silver screen. 

You may want to listen to Part One first.

Below is a full list of the movies mentioned, including links to where they have been previously discussed in other episodes. 

Thanks always to The Shape for the intro and outro music. Now also featuring, "Fritz Was Here" by YoshiBlade (via OCRemix).
