Scream Squad: Where is Her Mind? (Podcast)
Where Is Her Mind. This week on The Scream Squad, Chico and Jamie kick off the new year by exploring an age-old horror trope: women who lose it. What is it about talent that drives women to madness? We look at Black Swan, Mulholland Drive, Starry Eyes and The Neon Demon to try and understand why we love watching women self-destruct. What does it say about us that we love complicated male geniuses and women whose talent ultimately destroys them? What connection does beauty and youth have to talent? And how do these films misrepresent mental illness and its connection to talent? Tune in as we unpack all of this and more!
