On this episode of the Reel World Theology Podcast:
Another special Halloween episode! This time we talk about a film marketed as a stereotypical horror film but what we get is something quite different. Our panel discusses if it really should fit into the horror genre or not. We also talk about the history Guillermo del Toro has with the fantastical and how it seems to influence this film. And, as we do most Halloween episodes, we talk about the very nature of the horror genre; specifically, we talk about how storytellers use all types of ghosts, zombies, vampires, and more, to show us things about humanity that we might not explore otherwise. This is a good one!
This weeks’ panel included James Harleman and JR Forasteros.
