Ep# 19 - Kingdom of Trash (Or How I Learned To Stop Worrying & Love Junk Horror)

This week on the podcast, Dan and Veronica sit down for a freewheeling, wide-ranging discussion spurred on by Veronica’s recent article about the current state of horror movies (specifically around the use of the term “elevated horror.”)

Is “elevated horror” a new thing? Is it a real thing? And why do we gravitate towards the base thrills of a cheap, exploitative jump-scare machine sometimes? We talk about this, and much more (don’t worry, we get a few jabs in at Hereditary and the Suspiria remake, in case you were wondering) on this great new episode!

Movies mentioned in our discussion:

A new episode of Notes From the Back Row will be released every other week.
