ScreamBros: Bedlam on the Bayou ft. Graveyard Shift Sisters (PODCAST)
It’s bedlam on the bayou as this week on ScreamBros, Jamie and Chico are joined by Ashlee of Graveyard Shift Sisters to discuss Southern Gothic Horror. What encompasses this subgenre and why does it make for the perfect horror setting? Is it just crumbling plantation houses and Spanish moss or do these films make a commentary on the dark history of the land, where the sins of the father revisit generations later?
We kick off our discussion with a dive into the dark secrets behind Eve’s Bayou, the horror elements in Beloved and the misrepresentations in Angel Heart. Finally, we dissect some of the Southern Gothic influences found in Lemonade so you don’t want to miss this special episode!
