HistHORRORical – Nights

The Grawlix Podcast

You know what’s scary? The past. Like, the 1800s and earlier. You know what’s more scary? The past but with ghosts and the Wendigo. Well, okay, people have believed in these things for ages but in horror movies they get to actually exist. This week we’re looking at Historical Horror films. You know, creepy period pieces.

We discuss the Vincent Price classic, The Masque of the Red Death, 1999’s underrated Ravenous, and Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak. Plus, Randy’s thoughts on the new Chucky TV series and more. Enjoy!

Originally streamed live October 14th, 2021 via Facebook Live.
