In this second podcast in the art house horror series discusses the birth of the slasher movie! In this episode, I’m talking about films like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Halloween, and Friday the 13th. I also go into how Laura Mulvey, Sigmund Freud, and heteropatriarchy are interconnected in horror.
