Rachael and Elizabeth are joined by horror film scholar and expert, Jennifer Moorman to discuss how she developed a love for horror films, how the genre is described, and how these films can actually be comforting and even a thin place when we are feeling anxious.
Jen gives us a list of horror films 101 based on what you’re in the mood for:
Cat People (1942)
Daughters of Darkness
A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night
Ganja & Hess
28 Days Later
Night of the Living Dead
Jen has a podcast of her own that you should check out - When Animals Attack
And totally unrelated to horror films, you can follow Jen on Instagram as @fashionmindedprofessor.
If you want to hear hear voice AND see her face, you can even see her on Eli Roth's History of Horror on AMC
Learn more about Jen, the courses she teachers and her research on her Fordham University faculty page.
And finally, if you'd like to be generous on Jen's behalf, she'd be honored for you to help with the continued work of dismantling of white supremacy by giving to The Movement for Black Lives.
