  1. 1. Houses of Hell
    October 9, 2020
    42min
    TV-MA
    Home is where the heart is, unless you live in a house of hell. Whether they're filled with specters or psychos, every house of hell pokes at our illusions of comfort and safety.
  2. 2. Monsters
    October 26, 2020
    42min
    TV-MA
    The history of monster movies is also the history of the evolution of special effects technology. But, whatever their size or shape and whatever they represent, for many horror fans monsters are the best part of the genre.
  3. 3. Body Horror
    October 23, 2020
    42min
    TV-MA
    Sometimes disgusting, but always powerful, body horror films make us question our prejudices against physical difference, our attitudes about sex and gender, our fear of disease and contamination, and how much our appearance determines who we are.
  4. 4. Witches
    October 30, 2020
    42min
    TV-MA
    The witch is a towering figure in the history of horror. The archetypical evil witch is everything mainstream religion tells us a woman should not be - and that unapologetic, very female power frightens men and fascinates women.

    42min
    TV-MA
    Parents are supposed to love their children, no matter how awful their kids may be. The films highlighted in this episode may not solve the mystery of where evil comes from, but they have a terrifically terrifying time raising the question.

    November 13, 2020
    42min
    TV-MA
    Nine Nightmares is a deep dive into nine uncategorizable films that push the boundaries of horror. Great films that entertain us and provoke us. Films that put society under a microscope, making us question not just what we fear, but why we fear it.
