Disability
Representation Series

The Ghouls are joined by guest Pascale of Liberty Resources to talk about how people with disabilities have been treated in horror. I think you can see there's a trend in that the answer has been not very well. We talk films Hush and A Quiet Place to discuss the right and wrong way to portray deafness on screen.

The ghouls have a special episode featuring guests Marina and Pascale, tackling the film Midsommar and the many ways in which it let us down, specifically involving the many marginalized communities it abuses for its subpar plot.

Mental Illness
Representation Series

Ghouls are talking representation and this week we're talking to our friend and Kat's co-worker, Marina about how mental illness is shown in horror. History has been unkind to the mental illness community but we have had some victories. We talk about a win, the film Babadook which has done a great job of this!

Latinx
Representation Series

Continuing our dive into the incredible lack of representation in horror the Ghouls are tackling Latinx representation with their friend Sergio Galeano. Gabe has many choice words on the subject and her love for Guillermo Del Toro while her and Sergio bond over their Latinx-American upbringing. They watched La Llorona and Culture Shock (part of Hulu's Into the Dark series).
