We love how horror brings people together and bonds us through shared experiences and ideas - so we jumped at the chance to interview friend of the podcast BRADFORD NORDEEN about his new book Because Horror.
His new new book, Because Horror, with co-author Johnny Ray Huston, is a collection of 13 essays (incl. one poem) that mixes critical writing and memoir to explore horror movies and how they haunt memory. Bringing the glee of fandom into cinema scholarship, Because Horror promiscuously sways through titles like Messiah of Evil, Pulse, Mandy, Dante’s Cove and Scre4m, with prose that spreads sticky like louche gore over the history of a genre and its mutating sites of broadcast.
We took a deep dive discussing the topic of one of Bradford's essays - the film BLOOD DINER! What a romp this one is - if you haven't watched it yet - please do & then listen in on the conversation!
