Halloween Movie Talk

Hey there movie-people!

Today I’m joined by first-time guest Charlie Backer: entrepreneur, musician, and horror aficionado.

With only a few days until All Hallow’s Eve, we discuss a Catholic perspective on the horror genre.  Why is it acceptable (and good, even?) for a conscientious person to watch a horror flick?  Plus, we give a run-down of our favorite preternatural-focused scary movies for your viewing discomfort.


As referenced on the podcast, here are some of my favorite articles on the subject:

My High Holy Day, John Zmirak.

The Fun of Fear, Dan Lord.

Catholicism and Horror, Steven Greydanus.


And when you watch one of our recommendations, throw some Hot Charlie’s on your popcorn!
