Rachel & Elizabeth have referenced this conversation so many times recently that it seemed worthy of a replay! Even with Halloween just having passed, you may still be in the mood for a good horror film, and the insights that film scholar and expert Jennifer Moorman has to offer will have you experiencing, yes, even horror films, as a thin place.
Jen shares about how she developed a love for horror films, how monsters in horror films can help "outsiders" to feel empowered, and the power of the unknown that horror filmmakers tap into in order to scare us.
We also discuss how death and birth are often explored in horror films and how these films can actually comforting and even a thin place when we are feeling anxious.
