The Bloodcast Episode 50 Takes on Generational Shifts Within Horror


Jamie Lee Curtis Halloween?This week on our horror podcast with Geek Nation, The Bloodcast, I am old and Clarke is a millennial.  

Bringing these qualities to the table, we discuss how well John Carpenter’s Halloween and Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining have aged.  The conversation stems from a recent Yahoo! poll in which millennials were asked if Carpenter's classic was still scary.  Also, why were there hecklers at a recent screening of The Shining?  Is nothing sacred anymore?

We also dive into various other topics, of course, but this episode features a big discussion that you don't want to miss.  Listen in via the player below, or, download directly to your favorite device via iTunes.
